Plane Goes Missing?

Where is flight 370? Malaysia Airlines Flight 370 was an international flight that mysteriously disappeared on March 8th  from Kuala Lumpur International Airport to Beijing Capital International Airport. On board were 12 crew members and 227 passengers from 15 different nations and regions. However most of the passengers were Chinese.

The same day flight 370 disappeared, one of the largest searches in history took place. The Malaysian Prime Minister, Najib Razak , announced that satellite-related data showed that the aircraft’s ACARS and transponder had been turned off and the radar data indicated that the aircraft’s “movements are consistent with the deliberate action of someone on the plane.” (Razak, Najib). The FBI searched both the pilots homes but found nothing.  By March 18th, over 26 Countries were searching for the mysterious missing  plane that had somehow vanished into thin air.

There are many theories about what happened to the plane. Student Zoe deal states “It had to have landed on an invisible island in the middle of nowhere; Then they just turned off the tracking device, but why would anyone do that? You couldn’t fly anywhere without getting noticed.”

Hannah Quarnstrom thinks “It was UFOs that took the plane, then in 50 years we’ll all be watching the news and they’ll say the plane has been returned with all the passengers on it!”

A Fishermen believes they may have seen the missing Malaysia Airlines flight on the night it disappeared flying low over the Gulf of Thailand. They’re not 100% sure it was flight MH370, but if true it would suggest that the plane may have flown low to avoid radar what is known as “terrain masking.”

As of today flight 370 is still missing and theories of what happened continue to grow.
