As the mystery over flight MH370 deepens, one theory gathering credence on the web is Diego Garcia. As you may or may not be aware, Diego Garcia is a remote Indian Ocean island that is part of British Indian Ocean Territory. It is home to the United States most important naval base and home to thousands of military personnel.

Certain evidence has been presented that the change in direction of flight MH370 actually set it on a course for the island territory. Civilian flights to the tropical atoll have also not been scheduled for 72 hours and I also read that many maintenance contractors are on leave because work is not taking place at the moment.

The UK-US support facility is famed for its "turn a blind eye" work ethic and apart from Diego Garcia the rest of the territory is uninhabited.
