What exactly happened to MH370?

Most of us are familiar with the MH370 incident.

We all know that the aircraft got vanished with 200+ passengers and crew on board,but do we know what were the insights ,the theories and the mystery behind it!!

Let's try to unravel some!

To begin from the scratch, MH370 was a Malaysian airlines scheduled passenger flight from kuala lumpur to beijing.It lost control with the air traffic on March 8 2014 at 1:20 p.m,less than a hour after take off.

At 07:24 p.m,Malaysian Airlines confirmed the missing of the flight.The aircraft was a boeing 777  carrying 12 malaysian airlines crew and 227 passengers from 14 nations.

It is said that the aircraft was flying at an altitude of 35,000 feet and the last message which was recorded from the pilot was "Goodnight malaysian three seven zero" and after that there was no contact!

The aircraft's last known position was the Gulf of Thailand ,were the aircraft turned westwards(which was not the intended route) into the Strait of Malacca and the signal was lost then!

The crew was supposed to contact the Vietnamese aircraft when entering into the airspace,but there was no contact,Knowing this,the captain of another aircraft tried to contact the MH370 crew.He said,"I was able to establish contact but there was just mumbling and they remained static".


At 2:27 p.m,the aircraft sent a message to the ground satellite,but the response to the message was unanswered!


Within a few days, the search was extended to the Strait of Malacca and Andaman sea. On 15 March, based on military radar data and radio "pings" between the aircraft and an Inmarsat satellite, investigators concluded that the aircraft had diverted from its intended course and headed west across the Malay Peninsula.


The below picture shows the search areas 

The search has been extended to the Indian Ocean and till date there is no evidence of a debris or any other part of the aircraft.

There are still many unanswered questions as to 
Why the communication system was disabled?
Why the aircraft executed a U-turn before it disappeared?
These questions have deepened the mystery

During the search operation in the Indian Ocean, a debris was spotted and it was believed to be of the MH370's.But upon investigation it was found that it didn't belong to the malasyian missing aircraft.



After some days, a hyderabadi techie has found a satellite image of an aircraft flying too low above the forests of andaman islands and believed that to be of the MH370.He said," The air strip is exclusively used by defence forces with no civilian aircraft granted permission to enter into the area". He also added that a close look at the image will help us identify that the aircraft was flying exstremely low,that the clouds were visible and also that the standard scale and colour measurement of the missing aircraft matched the plane in the image


Tomnod,a crowd sourcing platform was used by millions of people to find the missing MH370 aircraft.


Several unofficial disappearance theories were also used,some of them which gave actual meaning but some were totally illogical!

HIJACKING was one of the theories everyone believed was true including me and everyone were hoping the return of their loved ones,but as days went by and since there were no demand posed,this theory was eliminated.

BLACK HOLE AND METEOR STRIKE  was also one of the theories.Logically,if there was a black hole our entire universe would have been sucked,so this was another illogical theory.

ALIEN ATTACK was another theory some say it's logical and some it's not.For me,it is illogical

BERMUDA TRIANGLE,a video on youtube which went viral supporting the fact that MH370 was abducted by the bermuda triangle.But then it was proved that the video was a hoax.

Apart from all these theories,search operation still continues and all the relatives and family of the missing aircraft still hope for a positive vibe 

Let's all pray for the lives of the people in MH370 and hope for the best!
