Search operation of the Malaysian “Boeing” MH370
Experts have studied a fragment of a wing found in North Africa, allegedly belonging to the Malaysia Airlines' Boeing, which disappeared in 2014, and put forward a new version of the disaster, writes the Daily Mail.
The discovered fragment was found in August 2020. The find again raised the question of the mysterious disappearance of the liner and provoked a new wave of interest in the fate of the Boeing MH370.
The aircraft is said to have hit the surface of the Indian Ocean at high speed, and it is likely that control of the airliner has been lost. Proponents of the theory believe that the debris may be at the bottom, almost 2,000 kilometers from Cape Leeuwin, which is the extreme southwestern point of Australia.
Specialist Michael Exner, who examined the found wreckage, assured that it was “almost certainly” part of the missing aircraft. Peter Foley, the former head of the search operation, agreed that the wreckage might be near Cape Louin. It is noted that this area is distinguished by deep canyons and seamounts. Foley noted that the search had not explored vast areas of the seabed.
In February 2020, former Australian Prime Minister Tony Abbott said that, according to the Malaysian authorities, the reason for the disappearance of the Boeing MH370 was the pilot's suicide. “It was made clear to me at the very top of the Malaysian government that from the beginning they thought it was a pilot's suicide with mass murder,” explained Abbott, who was head of the Australian government at the time of the disaster.
In July 2019, another version of the disaster was expressed: an aviation security expert suggested that the plane was hijacked by a man who entered it with the aim of deliberate destruction.
In June of the same year, it became known that the pilot of the plane, Zahariya Ahmad Shah, may have cut off the oxygen in the cabin, killing the passengers. As the experts found out, the pilots of flight MH370 deviated the plane from the course. The blame for this is laid precisely on Zahariah Ahmad Shah: it is reported that he reproduced a similar fatal flight in a flight simulator. He also experienced problems in his personal life: his wife left him, he was lonely and depressed.
A Malaysia Airlines plane en route from Kuala Lumpur to Beijing disappeared from radar screens in March 2014. Onboard there were 227 passengers and 12 crew members. In January 2015, all of them were officially declared dead. The aircraft has not yet been found.
