The Egyptian plane suicided into the Atlantic had a number Egyptian military officers on board.
I wonder if there was someone onboard MH370 who was a target.
That was always the question as to why the Chicoms shot down a Cathay-Pacific flight from Hong Kong to Singapore in the summer of 1954. The aircraft was far out over international waters east oo Hainan. USN carrier jets shot down at least 2 CCF fighters that intercepted them as the USN was searching for survivors.
