MH370 lead scientists believe that another theory may have conspired up during the time the plane has went from the status of ‘missing’ to ‘crashed’. The uncertainly and the confusion surrounding the unfortunate incident is just building up and the announcement of the plane being crashed hasn’t put a single soul to rest. Even we had doubts when this news first broke right? This is because there was no evidence of any wreckage; no debris at all.
Even after three months of the plane and its 239 passengers being missing, no sign of any wreckage could be spotted by the search parties. A lot of area was covered in the search mission and it is indeed hard to believe that such a huge plane left no sign of its crash. Many families of those on board the plane are finding it hard to believe and they still hope that somehow their loved ones may have survived and they have asked for information about the flight. The Australian authorities have also pressed ahead with the underwater operation, releasing a tender calling for companies to conduct the search.
With no proof the crash and no evidence in the form of debris, many theories have started building up. This has opened a door for possible sightings. Only a few days back, a British woman claimed to have seen the plane while on a sailing voyage from India to Thailand. This gave way to many other sightings as well, including claims that the plane flew low over houses in the Maldives or near an oil rig off the coast of Vietnam. During the past two weeks, the Malaysian authorities released the cargo manifest and the satellite data which was used to plot the apparent course of the plane after it made its unexplained turn south. The next phase in the search is going to begin from August and is going to take about 12 months.
