Another possible piece...?

Possible debris found on Reunion Island in MH370 mystery
A MAN who found a wing fragment from missing Malaysia Airlines Flight 370 has found a second piece of debris in almost the same spot that a flaperon washed up on shore last July.

Johnny Begue found a square-shaped grey piece of debris with a blue border on a beach in the French Indian Ocean island of La Reunion on Thursday local time, Associated Press reported.

Mr Begue is the same member of a beach clean-up crew who found the first object, a wing piece known as a flaperon last July.

It will be the third piece of debris found in the search for the missing plane.

More possible pieces keep appearing...

Possible MH370 engine part washes up on Mossel Bay beach in South Africa

A South African archeologist has found what may be a piece of MH370 debris featuring part of the Rolls Royce logo stamped on aircraft engines.

Malaysia said it would send a team to retrieve the object, which was found near Mossel Bay, a town of about 60,000 in Western Cape province on the country’s southern coast.

“Based on early reports, there is a possibility of the piece originating from an inlet cowling of an aircraft engine,” Malaysian Transport Minister Liow Tiong Lai said in a statement.

Neels Kruger was walking along a lagoon when he spotted something that did not seem to suit the natural surroundings.

More theories...
The search team’s controlled glide hypothesis is the first time officials in charge of the case have suggested a pilot may have remained in control during the flight’s final moments.

Mr Kennedy said a skilled pilot could glide a Boeing 777 the same as MH370 approximately 120 miles from cruising altitude after running out of fuel.

This scenario would mean an entirely new search area would have to be calculated.

I feel for the families and friends of all the passengers and crew...

Malaysia confirms Flight 370 course was on pilot's simulator
KUALA LUMPUR, Malaysia — Malaysia acknowledged for the first time that one of the pilots of Malaysia Airlines Flight 370 had plotted a course on his home flight simulator to the southern Indian Ocean, where the missing jet is believed to have crashed.
Australian officials overseeing the search for the plane last month said data recovered from Capt. Zaharie Ahmad Shah's simulator included a flight path to the southern Indian Ocean. Malaysian officials at the time refused to confirm the findings.
On Thursday, Transport Minister Liow Tiong Lai told local journalists that the flight path was found on the simulator. He also cautioned there were "thousands" of destinations on the simulator and no evidence that Zaharie flew the plane in that area or deliberately crashed it.

Debris sparks MH370 plane crash theory
TWISTED debris, possibly from doomed flight MH370, has been found off the coast of Mozambique.

The sighting has sparked the theory the plane exploded before it crashed, reportsThe Sun.

Previously it was assumed it had been under the pilot’s control when it plunged into the sea.

An African tour operator claims to have found a large piece of the missing plane on a beach called Linga Linga, on the eastern coast of Mozambique.

MH370: Possible debris could prove fire theory in Malaysia Airlines missing plane mystery
New wreckage that may be from missing Malaysia Airlines flight 370 could be the first proof for the theory that the plane was exposed to intense heat or fire.

The debris was brought to Australia and handed to officials at the Australian Transport Safety Bureau (ATSB) in Canberra this morning.

If the debris is confirmed to be from flight 370, it would support the theory that an onboard fire crippled the Boeing 777's systems, leaving pilots struggling to get back to safety before being overwhelmed by fumes or lack of oxygen.

It was found on the coast of Madagascar, the huge island nation off the southeast coast of Africa where the majority of suspected debris has come ashore so far.

Another theory...

How a bathroom break could have doomed Malaysia Airlines Flight MH370
Negroni theorises Zaharie thought it was a good time for what aviators call a “biological break.” “Your aeroplane,” Zaharie probably told First Officer Fariq Abdul Hamid as he stepped out to the toilet.

While Zaharie was away from the flight deck, Fariq’s main job was to establish contact with Vietnamese controllers in Ho Chi Minh City. Kuala Lumpur controllers signalled the hand-off at 1.19pm by radioing: “Malaysian 370, contact Ho Chi Minh [on radio frequency] 120.9. Good night.”

“Good night. Malaysian 370,” Fariq replied.

Sometime around then, an explosive decompression sucked the air out of the jet’s cabin and set its passengers and crew on course for disaster, says Negroni, a former crash investigator who covered the Malaysia disaster for ABC News in the US.

All the ideas...

Authorities now have a new theory about where MH370 can be found - just as the search is due to end
The report identifies a new area of approximately 25,000 square kilometres, north of the current area.
“When considered together with updated flight path modelling, the experts concluded that an unsearched area between latitudes 33°S and 36°S along the 7th arc of approximately 25,000 km², has the highest probability of containing the wreckage of the aircraft,” the report reads.

Another suggestion the plane is further north...

MH370: CSIRO scientists confident aircraft is north of actual search zone
In a report prepared for the Australian Transport Safety Bureau (ATSB), CSIRO scientists cite new research further indicating the aircraft is north of the actual search zone, in an area twice the size of greater Sydney (25,000km2).

This latest research confirms their earlier drift analysis made in a report released in November.

Two-hundred-and-thirty-nine passengers and crew were on board the flight travelling from Kuala Lumpur to Beijing on March 8, 2014 when it disappeared from aviation radars.

The search for the Boeing 777 was suspended in January 2017.

Breakthrough?

MH370: Search for missing flight narrows to specific area along 'the seventh arc'
The 2014 disappearance of Malaysian Airlines flight MH370 remains one of the greatest mysteries in aviation history.
Now, scientists believe they've narrowed down the potential search area to a fraction of space that was searched in December 2016.

But how did they get to this point?

Investigators now know the plane crashed somewhere along a line known as the seventh arc, to the west of Western Australia.

They came to this conclusion by looking at the plane's last transmission on March 8, 2014, and then examining a large search area in the Indian ocean, which was partially based on how far the plane could have glided.

That position was at latitude 39 to 36 degrees south along the seventh arc, but nothing turned up in the hunt.

Last December, they thought an area that spanned 25,000 kilometres at latitude 32 to 36 degrees south was the right place to look.

Within that new region, they have since narrowed it down to the area near 35 degrees south.

The most recent research by the CSIRO has strengthened scientists' belief this is where the plane may be found.

Tbh there's no reason to believe that the plane hasn't somehow moved since or that the industry's best guesstimates are even remotely on the mark. It could've crashed somewhere in the Antarctic until they find it somewhere else.

"Explosive new report virtually pinpoints location of missing flight MH370"
STARTLING new evidence has virtually pinpointed the location of MH370 — 1258 days since it disappeared.

The Australian Transport Safety Bureau has today released an explosive new report that effectively narrows the search zone for the missing plane down to an area half the size of Melbourne.

The report places the most likely location of the aircraft “with unprecedented precision and certainty” at 35.6°S, 92.8°E — in between Western Australia and Madagascar.
It is most likely to be in East 1 according to the report:

"MH37O: Wreck hunter Blaine Gibson receives death threats"
THE mystery surrounding MH370 has deepened after wreck hunter Blaine Gibson received death threats and the Malaysian Consul in Madagascar, responsible for handing over debris from the Boeing 777, was assassinated last week.

Mr Gibson said that he and others collecting debris had received death threats and new debris finds were due to be handed over to Zahid Raza, the Honorary Malaysian Consul in Madagascar when he was assassinated on August 24.

Mr Gibson who fears for his life said “for the protection of those involved we decided not to make this report public until the debris was safely delivered to Malaysia.”

"Malaysia has entered into a ‘no find, no fee’ arrangement with Ocean Infinity to find MH370"
MALAYSIA has entered into a “no find, no fee” arrangement with Ocean Infinity in a bid to recover the missing MH370 plane and discover the fate of the 239 people on board.

Australia’s Minister for Infrastructure and Transport Darren Chester acknowledged the agreement between the Malaysian government and the US- based seabed exploration company.

“The Malaysian Government has accepted an offer from Ocean Infinity to search for the missing plane, entering into a ‘no find no fee’ arrangement,” the MP said in a statement.

Australia will provide technical assistance at the request of the Malaysian government.

Flight MH370 vanished on March 8, 2014, on the way from Kuala Lumpur to Beijing, with 239 people on board.

Here's an interesting theory...

Flight MH370 didn’t just "disappear": Historian suggests mystery was first case of remote skyjacking and 'was diverted to prevent delivery of secret cargo to China'
Norman Davies, a historian and author, believes one possibility could be that the plane, a Boeing 777, could have been glided for several hours and landed in Antarctica - the perfect hiding spot, where it could be buried beneath the ice sheet for decades.
But the technology on board, designed to stop a repeat of the 9/11 terror attack by allowing it to be controlled on land, could mean the disappearance of MH370 may be due to the first recorded case of a remote skyjacking.
"The missing Malaysian Airlines plane was fitted with one of these Honeywell devices. In other words it was capable of being taken over remotely. Is this what happened? I am not an expert, but there are conclusions you can draw as to what may have happened."

Norman said while we do not know what happened to the plane, its fate may represent a new and terrifying move into a form of cyber warfare that could be disastrous in future.

He claims it may have been remotely controlled because it had something considered valuable on board that whoever seized control did not want to get to China.
Norman believes there are three key facts that point to the possibility of the first recorded case of remote skyjacking - not once but twice. Mysteriously very little information has also been released about who exactly was on board.

He says: "The plane moved in three distinct phases. Everybody agreed that the plane was diverted deliberately by someone with an expert knowledge who not only turned off the transponder but also reset the on-board computer. It fact it then turned round and headed in the opposite direction.

"As soon as it was diverted it flew back over Malaysia , obviously under very close control from someone.

"Then in the second phase, as it flew over the Andaman Sea, whoever had been controlling it appeared to lose control and the plane started flying round in circles.

"And in the third phase the instruments suddenly returned and the signals showed the plane was functioning and cruising for around five hours. But they don't know in which direction.

"My suggestion is that it was remotely hijacked - twice. If it had been hijacked just once, for example by the Americans which is just a guess, to stop it getting to Beijing, it would have been flown to an American base.

"But that didn't happen. The logical conclusion is that a second hijacker gained access to the plane, in order to confound the aims of their adversaries.

"We do know the plane crashed, as pieces of the aircraft have been found. But the question is what was going on in those two to three hours?"

Why would China ever rely on a foreign civilian airline to deliver "secret cargo? "What kind of cargo could Malaysia possibly have that would need to be physically transported and that China couldn't just get on their own?

I get that everyone wants an explanation for what happened, but this is almost as implausible as the alien theories. And that's without even mentioning his theory that the US would hijack a Malaysian plane in international airspace with dozens of Chinese nationals on board and then fly it to an overseas US airbase that'll have every major power's satellites watching it constantly. You could never hide that, and it's almost unimaginable that it would end in any way other than a war.

The best case is that he's extremely naive and hasn't thought about this at all. The worst case is that he's exploiting hundreds of people's dead family members to get attention and sell conspiracy theories.
