Over eight months ago, the Malaysian airlines flight MH370 has disappeared less than an hour after departing from Kuala Lumpur International Airport, Malaysia. The disappearance was so sudden and unexpected given the good atmospheric condition during that time. Operations were then conducted to locate the plane in hopes that it is safe along with the passengers.
Authorities started to get alarmed when the planes signal was lost in the radar. A search operation was then ordered by the Malaysian authorities. Even when other countries started to help, any signs of the aircraft was still not found. There were some who claimed that Malaysia airlines plane found but was immediately corrected by the authorities saying that the search is still going on. As the operation continues, people around the world started to speculate about what really happened to it. Below are some popular theories.
The first theory is about the aircraft being shut down by a joint military operation by the United States and Thailand. A book written by a UK based writer added emphasis on the theory saying that the operation includes mock warfare in land, water and air. It was said that one of the participants accidentally shot down the plane.
Terrorists hijacked the aircraft. It is not easy to dismiss the possibility of terrorism in this. Theorists have thought about the possibility of someone or a group on board the plane who took control of it while on air. Though there was no specific angle yet, they did not count off the possibility.
Third is about MH370 hiding behind a plane. At that time, another aircraft, the Singaporean Airlines flight 68 is flying through the India and Afghan airspace. Experts say that one reason why the missing aircraft was not detected is because it hid behind the other one. Therefore, the one that the radar will recognize is only that of the Singaporean vehicle. They say this is possible but the two has to be 3,300 feet of each other.
Extraterrestrial abduction. As days, weeks and months pass by without any clue as to what really happened, people online start to speculate about the involvements of alient in the disappearance. With no traces at all, some netizens believe that the only explanation for this is alien abduction.
Fifth is of island landing. Some theorists suggested the possibility of it landing on a British owned island in Indian known as Diego Garcia. This island is said to house a major US military base. This has gotten attention from many people around the world that US has to issue and official statement saying that there were no signs of the vehicle even going near the island.
Secret weapon. A conspiracy and scientific site run by Mike Adams opened the idea of the involvement of a possible secret weapon that is equipped with highly advanced mechanism. Since there was no single trace left by the plane, the site claimed that a powerful force must be at work.
These are only some of the many theories that arose after the disappearance. As to what really happened, we may never know. The best we can do is to pray for those people on board the plane who have families left and who are hoping that somehow, by some form of miracle, they are safe.
