    Finding the wreckage of of Malaysian aircraft MH370 is proving is proving to be very difficult. I have a different theory as to what happened. I think that the pilot made an controlled emergency crash at sea.He came in with an pronounced angle of attack to keep the engines away from the water to prevent an abrupt forward pitching of the aircraft. At that time, the tail hit the water and part of it broke off with the pingers still in it. The aircraft sustained damage; a broken wing or both, a partially broken tail section but the fuselage did not break up badly because the aircraft hit the water at reasonable speed and control. Between the partially damaged and a remaining wing, maybe both, there could have been enough buoyancy to prevent the aircraft from sinking fast. Then it picked up the prevailing underwater current and traveled quite a distance from the crash point as the depth of the water is so great. The pingers were found but not the aircraft because it's definitely not there.
