Maybe flight 370 will make its way back to Seattle with some "special cargo".

"On April 2, 1997, a Malaysia Airlines -200ER named "Super Ranger" broke the great circle "distance without landing" record for an airliner by flying eastward from Boeing Field, Seattle to Kuala Lumpur, a distance of 10,823 nautical miles (20,044 km), in 21 hours and 23 minutes".

The plane landed in YEMEN, that's my final answer.

It was the last known direction of travel and it's a shithole of illegal activity, so Ive read. We also did some mysterious unexplained bombing and killing over there a couple months ago. Or somebody did.

Aside from that, it just stood out to me when I was thinking about it.

Could it have flown all the way to somewhere near Brazil?

The range could be unlimited, what if it landed in an abandoned air field, was refueled and weaponized by a team?
