Many Still Speculating What Happened to Missing MH 370
Malaysia Airlines flight MH 370 flew off radar Saturday March 8, 2014 and has disappeared. The flight path scheduled overnight from Kuala Lumpur to Beijing marks one of the most puzzling aviation mysteries in history.
There is a lot of speculation about what might have happened to this flight, crew and passengers onboard including two infants. Due to all the investigations by authorities from many countries, some new views are arising. One view is looking more as though someone took the cockpit over as would be in a terrorist takeover. Again, this is only speculation. This view arises from the fact that MH 370 veered and turned off course and flew for at least five hours after communications turned off.
If this is a terrorist takeover, this sort of takeover has never been done before. Some terrorist group has always taken the responsibility for their acts. Will we ever know the whole story? Many investigative groups say they will find this plane in whatever condition. Many feel that it is unlikely that the people and crew onboard remain alive, and this is again only speculation.
A new collection of data is in process via satellite, and we will have to wait and see what happens as so much is still speculation. As of Saturday March 15, 2014, the Malaysian Government is now admitting that this missing plane was an act of terrorist takeover.
Other Notable Aviation Disasters
The 911 Disaster
There is no other notable aviation disaster in history that had such an impact on the world as the instances of terrorist takeover of four United States airlines on 911. The first 2 jet liners, flights 11 and flight 175, filled with adults and children deliberately crashed into the Twin Towers. One jet into one tower and minutes later another jet into the other tower of the World Trade Center in New York City. This terrorist attack killed all on board both jet liners plus hundreds of people trapped in the burning Twin Towers and many on the ground, killed by flying debris.
The third jet liner, flight 77 was flown into the Pentagon where one side of this mammoth building collapsed, killing all passengers and crew. Many more were injured and killed in the Pentagon.
The fourth jet liner, flight 93 targeted to crash into the White House crashed in Pennsylvania instead, through the efforts of some brave passengers. Passengers band together to help take the plane over from the terrorists. These brave passengers were successful but too late as the plane was in a in a fast descent, too late to bring the jet back up. This forth jet liner crashed into a field in Pennsylvania near Shanksville. All passengers and crew reported as killed in this fourth crash. No people on t he ground were killed in this crash.
In total, there were 19 terrorists in the 911 disaster. After these suicide plans were completed, the terrorist group Al-Qaeda an international terrorist network took proud responsibility for the attack led by Usama bin Laden, now deceased. In this current situation, no group or individual has claimed responsibility for hijacking passenger jet liner 227, if this is the case.
This recent terrorist takeover of a jet liner reported 227 missing passengers and 2 infants. While this in itself is a tragedy, the 911 terrorist incidents claimed over 3,000 people dead. While no one group or individual claimed responsibility yet, it seems as though the many supposed speculations are becoming a reality.
Any Plane Crash is a Disaster
There are at least ten aviation disasters over the last 40 years that killed from two hundred to over three hundred passengers and crew. All these disasters including the 911 disasters and now the recent Malaysian flight number MH 370 were unfortunate incidents that saddened the hearts of many around the world.
However, never has there been an aviation incident claiming so many lives as 911 or an aviation incident that has puzzled so many people around the world and the families of these missing passengers and crew of MH 370.
World leaders are sure this jet liner MH370 will be located, however uncertain if the passengers and crew remain alive at this time, seven days after their disappearance.
