MH370's 777 disappeared into the Indian Ocean, the investigation positing a possibility of a pilot self-hijacking the plane and flying until resource exhaustion, then gliding into a "controlled" ocean crash; perhaps why so few pieces of wreckage have ever been found.
Theoretically, if a pilot in this scenario had wanted to be picked up safely (intact), would it be technically feasible, e.g., would a pilot be able to safely exit an airliner like this alone in the water by him/herself, etc.?
Note: I'm not suggesting this occurred, nor do I think such. Merely wondering if this would be mechanically/operationally possible, as I've imagined this understandably being an involved and time sensitive process that was perhaps never designed to be done by one person alone.
