Recent documentary claims Flight MH370 flew toward Antarctica

February 24, 2015 3:22 pm

Flight MH370 may have been deliberately flown off course by someone in the cockpit, a new documentary claims.

disaster experts have analysed satellite data from the lost Malaysian
flight and discovered that the plane flew on for hours after
losing contact.
Careful examination of the evidence has revealed
that MH370 made three turns after the last radio call, first a turn to
the left, then two more, taking the plane west, then south towards
Antarctica.

According
to Malcolm Brenner, a world’s leading expert in the causes of aviation
disasters, those turns “strongly suggest” someone in the cockpit
deliberately flew MH370 off course.

“This accident has caught the attention of the world in a
way I have not seen in a forty-year career in aviation,” Mr Brenner
says.
The claims are being made in a new National Geographic
documentary out next month where Mr Brenner and a team of experts try to
solve the mystery of MH370.

Claims MH370 will be found within months

This
follows confident claims by the Australian co-ordinator of the search
that the doomed jetliner will be found within the next few months.
As
the current search for the Airlines plane is set to wrap up by
the end of May, Australian Transport Safety Bureau Commissioner Martin
Dolan said he was hopeful his team would unearth the wreckage by then,
.com.au reported.
But the Joint Agency Co-ordination Centre
is remaining tight lipped about the issue, saying the Chinese, Malaysian
and Australian governments would be assessing what to do next.
Flight MH370 vanished on March 8, 2014 while travelling from Kuala Lumpur to Beijing with 239 people on board.
No trace of the jet has been recovered since then but Mr Dolan believes his team are close to discovering the wreckage.
“I
don’t wake up every day thinking “This will be the day” but I do wake
up every day hoping this will be it, and expecting that sometime between
now and May that will be the day,” Commissioner Dolan told News Corp.
“It’s
been both baffling and from our point of view unprecedented – not only
the mystery of it, but also on the scale of what we’re doing to find the
aircraft.
“As we keep on pointing out, we don’t have a certainty only a confidence that we’ll find the missing aircraft.”

Changing search area

The
search for MH370 has so far been fruitless, with the crash site
initially thought to be in the South China Sea or Gulf of Thailand.
But search efforts were then redirected to the southern part of the Indian Ocean.
This
late start meant any trace of the wreckage on the surface of the ocean
floor would have sunk and it is thought some of the debris would have
appeared on the shores of Sumatra in Western Indonesia.
So far,
they have been unsuccessful in tracking down any piece of the aircraft
but experts were trying to predict its floating patterns to locate the
wreckage site by considering”‘how the aircraft would’ve collided with
the water”.
The Joint Agency Co-ordination Centre, which, headed
by Australia, is conducting the search says that so far the underwater
operations have scoured 22,000 square kilometres of the ocean bed,
equalling around 36 per cent of the priority search area.
It is
estimated that if there are no delays with vessels, equipment or from
the weather, the underwater search will be mostly finished some time in
May.
The ‘Go Phoenix’ supply ship has remained in the area,
2,500km to the south west of Perth, western Australia, but three vessels
involved in the underwater search have this week suspended operations
to return to port in Australia for scheduled visits.
Despite
months of searching in the area, there have been no sightings of debris
on the surface or any clues that the aircraft is lying on the sea bed in
region covered so far.
