Search for answers continues 10 years after MH370's disappearance

It has now been an entire decade since Malaysian Airlines flight MH370 vanished under mysterious circumstances.
Exactly what happened to Malaysia Airlines Flight 370 after it took off from Kuala Lumpur International Airport on March 8th, 2014 still remains one of the most enduring mysteries in aviation history.

The plane had been heading to Beijing Capital International Airport in China, but after a series of unexplained direction changes and the seemingly deliberate disabling of its transponder, the aircraft - along with all its passengers and crew - disappeared without a trace, never to be seen again.

What followed was one of the most extensive search and rescue operations the world had ever seen, with teams from multiple countries scouring vast areas of open ocean for any sign of the plane's wreckage.

Ultimately, though, the search came up empty.

Over the years, several theories have been put forward in an attempt to explain what could have happened.
Some believe that the pilot deliberately flew the plane and its passengers to their doom for reasons unknown, while others have suggested that the aircraft may have been hijacked.

More recently, pieces of plane wreckage thought to be from MH370 have been found washed up on beaches in the Western Indian Ocean, seemingly confirming that the plane met an untimely end, but offering little in the way of an explanation of exactly what happened.

Now, 10 full years after the plane's disappearance, efforts to understand the fate of flight MH370 remain ongoing.

The Malaysian government is thought to be considering a renewed search for the wreckage and Australia has also offered its continued support.

Whether or not such an endeavor will turn up any more clues, however, remains to be seen.

Did you forget about the email that went out to the top 100 news broadcasters in China?

Could you supply a link, please?   My hypothesis, now, is that MH370 kept to its flight plan until it hit Bigfoot in the night and it crashed into the sea below. Bigfoot, being mistaken for MH370, meanwhile ran off across the Malaysian peninsula until it disappeared from radar contact. Next ensued the cover-up and the deception that the plane had gone down west of Australia.

No problem.  Chinese group claims responsibility for missing jet   A shadowy group called the Chinese Martyrs’ Brigade has claimed responsibility for the disappearance of Malaysia Airlines Flight MH370 — but officials were skeptical and said the claim could be a hoax. The group — unheard of before now — on Sunday sent an email to journalists across China that read: “You kill one of our clan, we will kill 100 of you as pay back,” The emails were sent through over 20 servers to make it take a long time for Chinese officials to trace it back to the original sending server.

That smells like deception.

It actually sounds like hoaxers. Probably Falun Gong loonies. But 800 was most likely a short next to the wing tank. Which was a poor engineering decision and nobody took credit for it.

Doubtful. Why fly such an odd route when he could have just nose dived the plane. ?

That's just what I remember...suicide.  But who knows.  Maybe he was really mentally unbalanced?  No...wait...it had to have been UFO related...he was following a UFO!  That's it...

The questions are: 1. Where was the ufo heading? Apparently it was moving from east to west, crossing the peninsula where it was least likely to be observed? 2. How did it down MH370? Did it clip the airplane? Or did its magnetic field fry the airplane's electronics, causing it to crash? 3. What ships converged on the crash site to recover the plane wreckage? 4. Did the ufo adopt the airplane's transponder code in order to deceive the experts about the whereabouts of the airplane? 5. Was the satellite data adjusted to suggest that the airplane ended up at Australia's west coast? If so, who cou... [More]

Most normally, investigators would say something like... "We take all such threats seriously". Lack of that is what sounds suspicious. The emails were dispatched too quickly for "hoaxers" to do the research and find out the email address is for the top 100 newsmen in China. Also, these emails were sent through many servers per mail, and it would take much time to get back to the original server, meaning,,,  this extreme action was part of a well planned political attack. my opinion.
