Malaysia Airlines flight MH370 vanished on March 8 with 239 people on board. This week, material was found on Australian beach that some thought may have been from the plane. Investigators have concluded it was not connected. Bluefin-21, the robotic vehicle has now searched more than 80 per cent of the underwater search zone for Flight MH370 and nothing of any interest have been found.
In the same week, sources suggested that the plane may have landed after all. This news fuelled the on going speculation over the plane’s fate.
There are more conspiracy theories about what happened to the plane than there were passengers aboard: North Korea has the plane, pilot suicide was involved, it landed on a US military base, the plane was taken by aliens, there were people hiding in the crew rest area etc etc For families of the passengers, each speculation adds to their pain.
The Malaysian Prime Minister Najib Razak told CNN that the preliminary report into missing jet MH370 “next week”. The report has reportedly already been sent to the International Civil Aviation Organisation.
It will be interesting to see if the report gives answers or raises more questions. Hopefully, some conspiracy theories will be put to bed and those who are grieving can receive some closure.
