MH370 and the "Radar Shadow" Theory

Aviation radar

Keith Ledgerwood published a post earlier today outlining a theory he’s developed about Malaysian Airlines flight 370. I won’t go into great detail about his theory because you can read it yourself, and you should if you want to understand the rest of this post. The tl;dr is that he used available data about air traffic about the time and area MH370 was known, and later suspected, to be in the air, and has proposed that the plane’s alleged hijackers managed to disable the transponder and fly in the “radar shadow” of Singapore Airlines flight 68.
