I wonder if we will ever know their fate :tear:

Quote:
Today marks one year since the flight from Kuala Lumpur to Beijing disappeared from radar screens, with an international team expected to release a report on the plane's change of trajectory towards the southern Indian Ocean.
On March 8, 2014, the Malaysia Airlines flight set off on its doomed journey from Kuala Lumpur with 239 passengers and crew on board, including six Australians..........

Twelve months on and millions of dollars later, the search on the ocean floor continues but not a single piece of the plane has been found.

Some people think it was suicide, according to the BBC yesterday.

I doubt that a sane person - not a terrorist - would take all those lives just to take his own.

That usually has a religious reason. Also, school shoot-outs are done because they wanted attention. If this guy wanted attention or wanted to be "famous" I presume he would have let the world know that he caused it all.
Then again, if he's crazy you can't really use logic...

If you look at the bottom of the article there's quite a few "suspected pilot suicides" so who knows. Maybe just conspiracy theories, who knows.

Might not be planned, might be a spur of the moment decision to end it all. All I'm saying is, that it is a possibility.

In the original thread when the plane disappeared I pointed out a few, off the top of my head one of them was for insurance money for his family and another was a disgruntled employee.

Edit:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pacific_So ... light_1771 < disgruntled employee

and

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/SilkAir_Flight_185 < Insurance money

There's this one too

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/EgyptAir_Flight_990

and

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/LAM_Mozamb ... Flight_470

and probably more :/

Very interesting reads there losCHUNK. Thank you :up:

With MH370 I still find it strange there's no wreckage yet found :paranoid:

It is strange, even the air France flight that took a few years to find I think they had a rough idea where to search, although a huge area to search. In this case I don't think we can say reliably where it actually is, the Inmarsat data suggests its somewhere off the coast of Australia and it sounds good in theory but it is a theory. They should, if they havnt already, run a test scenario with another plane and use the same methods that Inmarsat used to see if they can reliably pinpoint a plane on a global map so we can say with some degree of certainty that it is where it is assumed to be.

It's a coral reef by now and it won't be found until we have satellite tech that can find metal a couple of miles below the ocean surface.

Just in case you missed it they have confirmed...


Quote:
The piece of wing found on the shore of Reunion Island in the Indian Ocean has been formally identified as part of the wreckage of Malaysian Airlines flight MH370, the Paris prosecutor has said.

The part, known as a flaperon, was found on the shore of the French-governed island on July 29 and Malaysian authorities have said paint colour and maintenance-record matches proved it came from the missing Boeing 777 aircraft.

A joke started in Friends but grew beyond the boundries of the show.
Problems with planes are usually because of the left phalange.

Oh, thanks and I see now :smirk: and why so many images of Phoebe came up.
Understand, I could count the episodes of 'Friends' I watched on the hand on an amputated arm :)
