The Mystery of the Missing 777: What We Know About Malaysian Airlines Flight MH370

Malaysian Airlines Flight MH370 was meant to be a routine flight between Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, and Beijing, China. The plane was one of the Boeing 777-200ER aircraft, carried more than 227 people and 12 crew members, and was scheduled to take five hours and 34 minutes. The flight route led the plane north past Malaysia pas, to the coast of Vietnam, the South China Sea, and across China.

When the plane headed north, MH370 was supposed to make contact with air traffic controllers in Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam. The aircraft appeared in Vietnamese radars, but it disappeared quickly. The transponder on the plane suddenly stopped broadcasting the signal, and Vietnamese and Malaysian military radars revealed the massive plane moving north before reversing west to face the Andaman Sea and the Indian Ocean. Autopilots were turned off, probably by hand, to complete the turn west. 

The plane was never seen again. It checked in automatically to Inmarsat satellites in the Indian Ocean, but the location was unclear. In the year 2017, the bodies of 20 pieces of debris from aircraft were discovered in the Indian Ocean, on the French territory of La Reunion, and in Mozambique, Madagascar, Mauritius, South Africa, and Tanzania. The examination of the serial number of the item French authorities discovered at La Reunion confirmed it came from the MH370 aircraft. The Malaysian Ministry of Transport has confirmed that at least one of the other pieces of the plane was from the MH370. The latest item was found in Madagascar in December 2022. Although not confirmed as part of the disappeared plane, it is a part of something else.

The recognition of the wreckage believed to be from the plane indicates that the aircraft was destroyed in the Indian Ocean. Somewhere in the Indian Ocean.

Conspiracy Theories About Flight MH370

The mysterious disappearance of a plane carrying 239 passengers raises questions. Unfortunately, most of them go into the dark side, filled with conspiratorial theories that cannot be easily proven, no matter how absurd or absurd they appear.

One theory is that North Korean leader Kim Jong did not take over this flight to investigate the plane and its tech. Theorists claim it is possible that North Korea had hijacked planes in the past and that the aircraft should have enough fuel to complete the journey. Although North Korea has a long history of abductions and hijackings, the technology used in the 777-200ER did not have any military significance. North Korea may have been developing turbo engines to power cruise missiles; however, it was clear that the Rolls Royce Trent 800 machines were too large for practical use.

A different theory suggests that the crew deliberately or hijacked an aircraft to Diego Garcia, a British territory with a substantial U.S. military base. Although technically plausible, this half-baked idea is without a rationale. Why do you think the U.S. military organizes the covert diversion of a civilian aircraft with no evident significance?

Another possibility may be that this plane may have been “cyber hijacked,” or controlled by signals from an unidentified cell phone on the plane. Although theoretically possible, such an attack is usually carried out to draw attention. No one has yet to claim responsibility for the alleged hijacking. And, more importantly, if it was during March, how did it not happen again?

The Most Likely Turn of Events

In the past nine years, federal investigators, journalists, journalists, and online investigators have focused on various aspects. Most of them have retreated except for one thing: incidents in the cockpit.

What happened to MH370 occurred within the cockpit. A person in charge of the aircraft carried out the deliberate turning of the plane westwards off course. Should the aircraft be hijacked, the control was probably to be taken by the cockpit. If a frightened or depressed pilot chose to divert the plane, this was done through physically manipulating the aircraft. There is speculation that some electrical issue stopped it moving but left the pilots in a position to not call for assistance. However, if that was the scenario, there was an unidentified turn executed that placed the plane on a path that was not safe.

The Takeaway

We’ll never know the fate of the MH370. There is no way to know what happened. The Indian Ocean is a vast space, and even though many fragments of wreckage were discovered, the plane itself is likely to have been smashed in many details. There isn’t expected to be any discernible wreckage found on the ocean floor, and crucial clues, such as the plane’s black box, could disappear.

In evaluating the facts, it is essential to critically assess any theories and remember that the most extraordinary claims need exceptional proof.
