Update 2: Chinese state media says Vietnamese have picked up a signal from flight MH370 220 kilometres of the coast. It would appear that the missing plane is in the sea. Whatever brought the plane down, it was something catastrophic. Like an explosion for example. Maybe there was a bomb on the plane or perhaps one of the pilots deliberately crashed the plane into the sea.
Update 1: It didn’t take long for somebody to appear on TV and imply that the demise of Flight MH370 may have been brought on by an act of terrorism. Hey, for all that guy knows, there could have been a couple of extremists flying the plane.
Initial Blog Post
A plane carrying 239 people (reportedly) has disappeared during a flight from Kuala Lumpur to Beijing. There were a 7 Australians on that plane.
Now if I was a conspiracy theorist, I’d be saying in Crooked in Canada, that the plane was shot down by Chinese extremists. There were 152 Chinese nationals on the same flight. There was also two Canadians on board.
Of course for that theory to fly, search and rescue, has to find the plane first and then forensic specialists will have to do their thing to make a believable story out of pieces of the plane about how the Boeing 777 aircraft went down. The crash investigators could be at it for months before we the know the truth about the downing of Malaysian Airlines Flight MH370.
Until air crash investigators get their hands on the black box nobody knows what happened to Flight MH370.
All anybody knows at the moment is that it could have been an act of terrorism, human error, bad weather, or mechanical and flight system failure that brought the aircraft down.
It’s the biggest newstory on the worldwide web at the moment and there are lot of conspiracy theories along the information highway.
Fingers crossed they find something soon because there might be some survivors.
