An inspired eight-year-old wrote Delta Airlines a letter with a suggestion on how to locate missing planes. He was watching a show about the missing Malaysia Airlines plane when the idea came to him. It's easy to laugh it off as cute and naive, but after going over it a few times, it actually kind of makes sense.

He also supplied a supplementary blueprint to demonstrate how one would execute his concept:

Ah yes, the balloon method.

Delta sent him a nice thank you, along with some free Delta swag:

This kid is going to be Delta's #1 spokesperson. 

It's a pretty solid theory, if you believe that the Malaysia Airplane still exists in this dimension
