Interesting info....
Possible Wreckage Found

In July of 2013, TIGHAR (The International Group for Historic Aircraft Recovery) detected an anomaly using side scan sonar off the coast of Nikumaroro island, an uninhabited tropical atoll in the southwestern Pacific republic of Kiribati which was the target of TIGHAR's underwater search in 2012.

Upon review, it was determined that the anomaly resembles that of a crashed Lockheed Electra, the type of plane which Earhart was flying. TIGHAR believes that they have found evidence that the plane crash landed on the shallow reef before being washed to its current position a few hundred yards off the reef itself.

Past expeditions on the island have turned up some curious artifacts, in particular 1930's anti freckle cream, an American made woman's compact, and buttons and zipper from a flight jacket. TIGHAR theorizes that Earhart made a water landing and she and her copilot survived on the remote island for a time, before succumbing to starvation.

They plan to return to the island in 2014 to better inspect the wreckage found, and perform an archaeological dig on the site in the hopes of finding remains.

The closest appropriate airport was called Pulau Langkawi. It had a massive 13,000-foot runway. The captain programmed the destination into the flight computer. The auto-pilot turned the plane west and put it on a course right for the runway (the same heading the plane turned to) The captain and co-pilot tried to find the source of the smoke and fire. They switched off electrical "busses" to try to isolate it, in the process turning off systems like the transponder and ACARs automated update system (but not, presumably, the auto-pilot, which was flying the plane). They did not issue a distress call, because in a mid-air emergency your priorities are "aviate, navigate, communicate" — in that order. But smoke soon filled the cockpit and overwhelmed them (a tire fire could do this). The pilots passed out or died.
Smoke filled the cabin and overwhelmed and distracted the passengers and cabin crew... or the cockpit door was locked and/or the cockpit was filled with smoke, so no one could enter the cockpit to try to figure out where the plane was, how the pilots were, or how the plane might be successfully landed. (This would be a complicated task, even if one knew the pilots were unconscious and had access to the cockpit, especially if most of the plane's electrical systems were switched off or damaged) With no one awake to instruct the auto-pilot to land, the plane kept flying on its last programmed course... right over Pulau Langkawi and out over the Indian Ocean. The engine-update system kept "pinging" the satellite. Eventually, 6 or 7 hours after the incident, the plane ran out of fuel and crashed.

This theory fits the facts. It makes sense. It explains the manual course change as well as the "pings" that a satellite kept hearing from the plane. It requires no fantastically brilliant pre-planning or execution or motives.
This.

Plane malfunction.. That's why the plane turned toward the closest most accessible airport.

If it is to believed the aircraft was still flying for 5hrs after last known contact they took their time.

The autopilot doesn't land the plane, if it was on they would have headed toward an airport and it would just continue flying past is until it ran out of gas..

Re: BREAKING NEWS: Malaysia Airlines Says It Has Lost Contact with Its Flight f

They (being) the experts are in no doubt the transponder was deliberately turned off so the aircrafts movements couldn't be tracked...Now in any emergency scenario these pilots had trained emergency simulator mock ups they wouldn't have involved doing that...Its crazy that they can\could...There is no valid reason for doing so other than criminal intent.

BTW, these planes do have automatic landing systems.

That's accounted for in this scenario..
