Malaysia Airlines flight MH370, which shook the world’s calendar in 2014, has disappeared, leaving almost no evidence. This event full of question marks remains in the memories despite the passage of time. Search efforts and speculation continued for years after the plane disappeared and its wreckage could not be found. Strange aspects of the event were brought up again with the Netflix documentary “MH370: The Plane That Disappeared”. In the documentary, some aspects of the event are discussed and the opinions of researchers and witnesses are conveyed. Thanks to this documentary, the known and unknown aspects of the disappeared aircraft MH370 are once again brought under the microscope and the secrets of the event are discussed again. Let’s take a closer look at the details of this interesting event together.
How did the plane disappear?
MH370 was a Malaysia Airlines Boeing 777-200ER on March 8, 2014. He was traveling from Kuala Lumpur to Beijing. While the aircraft was scheduled to enter Vietnamese airspace, contact with the aircraft was lost at 01:21. Signals received again later showed that the aircraft was veering off course and heading west towards the Malay Peninsula. However, it is not possible to determine exactly where the plane went.
After the disappearance of the plane, many countries around the world began searching with search and rescue teams and technological equipment. However, the wreckage of the plane was never found. Malaysia Airlines indicated that there could be a technical malfunction or accident on board, but many people were skeptical of this statement.
The plane’s disappearance has sparked many speculations and theories. Some claimed that the plane was hijacked and hidden for use by some terrorists. Others suggested that the pilot or crew members had hijacked the plane.
The plane’s disappearance remains a mystery. Search efforts continued for years, but the wreckage was never found, hampering efforts to unravel the mystery. The disappearance of the plane is considered a turning point in the history of aviation and it seems that the issue will remain the focus of debate for many years.
Who was on the plane?
Among the passengers were 152 Chinese. The plane took 50 passengers from Malaysia and 7 passengers from Australia. There were also passengers from Indonesia, India, France, the United States, Canada, New Zealand, the Netherlands, Russia, Ukraine and Iran. There were also important names among the travelers.
In addition, the passengers included a number of prominent businessmen, teachers, engineers, students and tourists. Although extensive search efforts were made after the disappearance of the plane, unfortunately no clues were found. Families and loved ones of the passengers remain with unanswered questions about the fate of the missing.
Why did the plane disappear?
The cause of MH370’s disappearance has been the subject of many discussions and theories so far. The fact that no pieces of wreckage were found in the searches that began after the plane’s disappearance made the search effort difficult and left many unanswered questions as to why the plane had disappeared.
The reasons for the disappearance include many different causes such as technical problems, pilot error, terrorist attack, and low fuel level. First, the possibility of technical problems was considered and it was thought that a leak might have occurred in the aircraft’s fuel pipe. However, no such problem was found during the investigations.
Then the possibility of pilot error was discussed and the psychological features of Captain Pilot Zahari Ahmad Shah and his co-pilot Fariq Abdul Hamid were examined. However, no negative could be detected and it was concluded that both pilots were ready to fly.
The possibility that the plane was hijacked was also considered. It was later revealed that some of the passengers were traveling on the plane with fake identity cards. This increased the possibility of a terrorist attack. However, no terrorist organization has claimed to have hijacked the plane.
Finally, the possibility of the aircraft crashing into the sea due to low fuel level was discussed. However, the fact that the plane crashed into the sea so far from its planned trajectory weakened this possibility.
Until now, no final conclusion has been made about the cause of the plane’s disappearance. What happened on the plane and its causes are still a mystery.
