[1] But what is still not explained is what is the "Predicted" track
information source (see chart).

Just as a guess, I expect whoever was directing the aircraft flew in a
manner to avoid any radar as much as possible around North Sumatra,
then proceeded on a heading of 180 as far as he could go with the fuel
he had. That course would be easy to remember and put into the
autopilot, and works from anywhere in the neighbourhood, and would
take him clear of almost anything from whereever he turned south once
he was to the west of Sumatra.

That would put them in the ocean about 1400 miles west of Perth, and
to the south as far as the fuel would take them.

Just a hunch.

From today's news:

"Meanwhile, the search for debris on the ocean surface picked up
intensity on Wednesday, with 15 planes and 14 ships scouring a 29,121
square mile area that extends from 1,405 miles northwest of Perth."
