MH370 evidence prompts calls for new search

A new analysis of debris from the airliner has suggested that it had entered a 'death dive' before crashing.
Exactly what happened to Malaysia Airlines Flight 370 after it took off from Kuala Lumpur International Airport on March 8, 2014 still remains one of the most enduring mysteries in aviation history.

Despite undertaking an extensive search covering 46,332 sq miles, costing $160 million and lasting 1,046 days, investigators from Australia, China and Malaysia ultimately failed to find the wreckage.

While even now, seven years on from the disaster, investigators still don't know what happened, a small amount of debris has been found that has offered up a few tantalizing clues.

Most recently, an analysis of a wing spoiler that washed up in South Africa last August has not only revealed a possible new crash site for the plane, but has also indicated that in its final moments the aircraft had dropped from the sky in a sudden and uncontrolled 'death dive'.
Previous investigations had suggested that the crew may have become incapacitated - perhaps due to a 'hypoxia' event, which is when a loss of pressurization causes those on board to fall unconscious.

Now Peter Foley - who previously headed up Australia's efforts to locate the wreckage - has proposed a new search of its most likely whereabouts based on the new evidence.

The area is in the Indian Ocean approximately 1,900km west of Cape Leeuwin in Western Australia.

As things stand, finding the wreck will be the only way to know for sure what really happened.

I'd love to be part of a team that got to go out and search for things like this.    Although it'll probably be hard to spot down there since it will more than likely be covered in plastic bags and other garbage.

You could only hope they were all unconscious when it crashed

Has "The disappearing act" been proven fake or I'm missing something here?
