It seems like everyone is searching for the Malaysian flight that went missing on March 8 with 239 people on board. Teams from 26 countries have joined in the search and now the FBI has as well.
They are currently investigating a home made flight simulator that belonged to the captain of the missing Malaysian Airlines flight and trying to determine why the pilot deleted some of the files from the program.
Investigators are looking at every possible angle and trying to figure out what could have happened to the plane. Many theorize that it could have been hijacked by terrorists, exploded in midair, or was used for pilot suicide. It seems like no one can decide on which theory is the most likely and the plane has not been located.
Capt. Zaharie Ahmad Shah’s computer hard drive was taken by the FBI to determine if he and any other members of the crew may be behind the flight’s disappearance. Investigators believe that the plane’s disappearance was deliberate but are not sure who is responsible or the reasoning behind the crime.
The United States has been working closely with the Malaysian government and other countries to search for the plane and investigate its disappearance.
“We are finding that the level of co-operation with the Malaysian government is solid, and we are working closely with the Malaysians as well as our other international partners in this effort to find out what happened to the plane and why it happened,” White House spokesman Jay Carney said.
As the days pass, the likelihood of finding the missing plane dwindles. The family members of the passengers on the flight continue to stay hopeful, but with each passing day, they grow more worried.
