The oddest Flying Malayman theory I've heard yet...

...was secondhand from one of Roomie's co-workers:

"He wants to know what's going to happen in a couple years when suddenly China releases a bitwise copy of the 777?"

"Um, tell him Chinese-flagged carriers already have, like, more than a hundred of the things. Why wouldn't they just copy one of those instead of doing all this James Bond stuff?"

Was Shatner on board? We haven't heard from him.

The ones sold to Chinese carriers are copy-protected.

They must have one hell of a 3D printer!

Way less expensive to buy a new one, with warranty, than to reverse-engineer and manufacture a copy.

Besides, China already makes parts for Boeing.

There's a simple explanation: The Rapture happened.

Unfortunately for the rest of us, the only ones taken were on that plane.

No self-respecting super villain is going to BUY an something if they can steal it.
