Flight MH370 was announced just recently to have been almost surely downed in the Indian Ocean. Satellite evidence and research from multi-national search teams is fairly conclusive.
The families are mourning, weeping and protesting after the news and are looking at a long road of recovery. They face possibly never recovering the remains of their loved ones and having that closure. They face a long list of what if and why, neither of which we may ever know. They received the news this morning via text message that read:
"Malaysia Airlines deeply regrets that we have to assume beyond any reasonable doubt that MH370 has been lost and that none of those on board survived. As you will hear in the next hour from Malaysia's Prime Minister, we must now accept all evidence suggests the plane went down in the Southern Indian Ocean."
The biggest mystery of it all is: What happened?
Well, there are theories aplenty running rampant out there, with the most prominent being terrorism. Could this be the key to the mystery? The suicide mission of a deranged pilot seems familiar and plausible, and it is a huge possibility according to Yahoo UK & Ireland.
Investigators believe this theory based on the manual disabling of the planes communication system and the unusual flight path it took.
A source that is reportedly close to the investigation stated that "this has been a deliberate act by someone on board who had to have had the detailed knowledge to do what was done ... Nothing is emerging that points to motive. It just does not hinge together ... [The investigators] have gone through processes you do to get the plane where it flew to for eight hours. They point to it being flown in a rational way."
Only time and careful investigation will tell in this incredible mystery of the disappearing plane, and if it is terrorism, then a claim will surely soon be made. We shall wait and see.
