The Boeing 777-200 took off from Kuala Lumpur International Airport at 00.41 a.m. (16.40 GMT Friday) of last Saturday, with destination Beijing, and went off the radar at 1:30 a.m. It had disappeared into the sky, with 239 passengers traveling aboard.
While dozens of ships and planes are still looking for the remains of the airplane, some disturbing hypothesis assume that flight MH370 may have been intentionally diverted as it formed part of a military experiment.
A secret trial behind flight MH370
The Freescale Semiconductor company located in Texas, launched a high-tech electronic weaponry (EW), which is specifically designed to “cloak” aircrafts. 20 experts from the company were among the passengers of the Malaysian flight, a fact that has arisen multiple conspiracy theories.
According to this, the case of flight MH370 has some similarities with that of the destroyer USS Eldridge, on 28 October, 1943. The Philadelphia Experiment was the supposed secret operation carried out by the U.S. Navy in Philadelphia (Pennsylvania). This mythical event involved the disappearance of an entire naval vessel during a radar-cloaking test.
The black list of aviation
On 31 October 1999, the EgyptAir flight 990 crashed into the Atlantic Ocean on a route from New York to Cairo, killing 217 passengers and crew. Years later, the US National Transportation Safety Board concluded that the co-pilot el-Batouty intentionally brought the plane down in a suicide bid. He had just been reprimanded for sexual misconduct, and when the chief of the airline’s pilot group warned him that this would be his “last flight”, el-Batouty replied: “this is the last flight for you too.” “I rely on God”, he said before forcing the plane in free fall.
The Air France flight 447 from Rio to Paris sank mysteriously in the middle of the Atlantic Ocean, on June 1, 2009, with 228 people aboard. Five days later, rescuers found some remains of the wreck, but the black boxes were recovered from the bottom of the ocean two years later.
The US Airways 427 flight from Chicago to Pittsburgh exploded in the air in 1999, some minutes before landing.132 passengers died this time. It took four years to figure out that the tragedy was due to a mechanical failure.
On December 21,1988, the PanAm flight 103, with destination New York, exploded over Scotland after a terrorist attack, killing all 243 passengers. It is presumed that the pilots had no time to send an emergency signal. Security experts from Malaysia stated that the lost flight MH370 has some similarities with the PanAm crash, as it has not ruled out a hijacking.
