Recently I had viewed a documentary on MH370, a Malaysian plane that went missing on the 8th of March 2014. Although it has been 5 years since people lost contact with the Malaysian airline, many families still wait at the airport in hope for their loved ones. So far there has not been much evidence of the plan such as debris, plus it is still unsure who or what was behind the cause of the plane disappearing.

The missing Malaysian airline flight vanished on the route from Kuala Lumpur, to Beijing with 239 people on board on March 8, 2014. Despite some debris washing up in Madagascar, the greatest aviation mystery in history has yet to be solved. A few theories were made such as, “the plane having faulty wiring and due to that causing disturbance during the flight causing the plane to crash”.

Another possible theory made was the pilot leading passengers towards their death. A theory of the pilot, Captain Zaharie Shah perhaps a suicide pilot. Some more finding was put in place to see if this theory was to be true, but it is very unlikely, as many suicides usually suffer long-term issues, such as being mentally unstable, but the captain did not seem to have any history of that. Some theories were so far fetched it was thought that the pilot parachuted out of the plane so he could spend the rest of his life with his girlfriend who was waiting in a boat in the sea.

Most intriguingly it was thought that the plane had not stopped at its destination and continued to move through the sky before the plane disappeared.  The satellite communications system was switched off then turned back on over the Malacca Strait – north-west of Kuala Lumpur. Jeff (researching the disappearance of the plane) believes the plane probably flew on for another 15 minutes before making final turn south towards the Indian Ocean. However, it remains unclear why the pilot would turn off the station and then turn it back on considering it was never actually used.

Family members of those lost on Malasia airline have asked the Malaysian government to be more proactive after one of its ministers hinted at a potential new search for the missing plane. In the lead-up to the five-year anniversary on Friday of MH370’s disappearance, the Malaysian transport minister, Anthony Loke, said this week he was “willing” to restart the search if there were “specific proposals”. Two large-scale searches have so far failed to find MH370 since it disappeared on 8 March 2014, with 239 people on board. The most recent search ended in June 2018.

So the mystery continues…
