Could Flight MH370 have landed at the Island of Socotra, Yemen ?

If the last known satellite Ping was at 8:05 am Flight MH370 could have landed at the isolated island of Socotra, off the coast of Yemen and Somalia, flying low, never crossing any land radar ... Socotra, Yemen (Click to view Google Map)

Flight MH370 could have been modified, refuelled on Socotra and flown anywhere.... "Socotra is perhaps the most important refuelling hub for hijacked merchant vessels used as motherships, especially those operating between the Gulf of Aden and India's western waters, mainly off Oman and increasingly closer to the Strait of Hormuz" Somali pirates use Yemen island as fuel base

Are there any known Pirates in this area ??? What could they sell a 777 for ? Here is some more information on the Island of Socotra (Wikipedia):

"The island is very isolated and a third of its plant life is found nowhere else on the planet. It has been described as "the most alien-looking place on Earth". The island measures 132 kilometres (82 mi) in length and 49.7 kilometres (30.9 mi) in width."

  2. Not enough fuel to reach Yemen.

  3. If the pilot Whoever it was practiced Gliding they could easily fly 8 or more hours. Think outside the box, if this airplane was stolen it the means these pirates are thinking outside the box that is Certain.

  4. The Boeing 747 can glide about 17 times its height if no wind... The 777 should be able to do about same - From 11 km altitude, it could glide (no wind) about 187 km distance - That would take about 20-25 minutes glide, no power, to sea level - .
