The Malaysia Airlines Flight 370 has officially made history by becoming the longest disappearance in modern aviation.
The Malaysia Airlines Flight 370 was originally scheduled to fly from Kuala Lumpur International Airport to Beijing Capital International Airport on March 8. Within a few hours, Malaysia Airlines (MAS) reported the aircraft as missing. It was carrying 12 Malaysian crewmembers and 227 passengers from 14 nations.
The incident has sparked a media frenzy as coverage continues to be dedicated to the ghostly aircraft that has been gone for over a month now.
Speculations, rumors and whimsical theories are going wild to find a possible explanation to the international flight vanishing.
The passengers’ family members are clinging to the impossible hope that their loved ones will be found somewhere someday, and possibly alive.
No doubt, many books will soon be published about it and, knowing Hollywood, it would be unsurprising if the creation of film is being discussed as well.
Can you imagine that such a big Boeing plane, carrying hundreds of passengers, has vanished without a trace? How is that possible?
Among the multiple theories, authorities first thought that the pilot himself, for some obscure reason, hijacked the plane, which was later revealed to be false.
Others thought the plane exploded in the air, but no debris has been found.
Some people even doubt that the airplane really ever flew. They consider the whole story a hoax or an internet sensation.
As a result of modern science’s failure to discover the truth, several people have come up with irrational theories.
Conspiracy theorists blame aliens for abducting the aircraft while others believe that the plane had entered a new dimension of reality invisible to our eyes and untraceable to human radars or satellites.
Some individuals compare the Malaysia plane situation to the famous Bermuda Triangle anomaly that occurred in the 1940s, in which several planes and ships mysteriously disappeared in the region between Florida, Puerto Rico, and Bermuda, infamously known as the Bermuda Triangle.
To this day. people are not entirely sure what happened to those crafts. Some of the disappeared ships were found without the passengers, sailing alone on the sea as ghosts.
However, in the 1940s, science was not as developed as it is today. It was long before the era of the Internet, smartphones, social media, omnipresent cameras, and rotating satellites.
Even with the best technological resources available and historically largest multinational air-sea search effort, the plane continues to be undiscovered..
We thought we had total control of the blue planet, but the Malaysia Airlines Flight 370 has proved us wrong.
It appears we do not know Mother Earth as well as we thought and still have a lot to discover about this planet.
