New allegations have been released to the media suggesting that Malaysian officials still haven't come clean regarding what they know about the disappearance of Flight 370. Now a month later, new information has surfaced to suggest the plane may have been hijacked. Meanwhile, recovery ships zero in on a possible black box homing beacon.
Search teams have scoured the surface of the Indian ocean, but not one bit of Flight 370 has been found.
LOS ANGELES, CA (Catholic Online) - A new report has been released that claims Malaysia Airlines 370 flew around the northern end of Indonesia, to skirt military radar. If true then why hasn't the information been released sooner? More importantly, the information suggests the plane was in controlled flight long after it deviated from course, increasing the likelihood that it was hijacked.
An anonymous email received by the Daily Mail claims the plane was hijacked and pilots were told to circle around Indonesian airspace as officials negotiated with hijackers. The email claims the hijackers were demanding the release of Malaysian opposition leader, Anwar Ibrahim within five hours or the plane would be destroyed.
Please pray for the families and victims of Flight 370.
It is possible the Malaysian government could have kept this information from outsiders to avoid embarrassment.
So far, the reports haven't been confirmed and because the email was sent anonymously, it is impossible to verify. However, it does explain why Malaysian authorities took so long to admit the flight was missing and mount a search.
It also rules out the possibility of a cabin fire or other accident what may have caused the pilot to deviate course.
Still, this remains just a rumor until further evidence comes to light, and presently there are plenty of rumors and theories.
Meanwhile, recovery ships and aircraft are moving into the area where the lost flight is expected to be, possibly some two miles beneath the ocean's surface. Over the weekend, both Chinese and Australian search vessels detected pings that are likely emitted by the aircraft's black box and missing flight data recorder.
The Australian vessel, Ocean Shield is equipped with a submersible vehicle that can map the seafloor if they are able to home in on the signal. However, if the signal is authentic then it will have to be triangulated, that is detected from different directions to determine a probable location.
Time is of the essence. After today, there is no guarantee that the black box and flight data recorder will continue to emit pings as their batteries are only guaranteed for 30 days. According to the airline, the particular batteries on Malaysia Air 370 were due for replacement in June.
The next 24-48 hours should be telling. If nothing further is learned or recovered in the next two days, then it is likely the search will continue indefinitely, or will be scaled back because of expense. And without the hope of detecting a locator beacon, there is no point in maintaining a robust search fleet out at sea.
So far a number of promising debris finds have turned out to be just trash.
