A year on, and still nothing conclusive. How terrible for all the families. :(

At this point in time, should everything be fully investigated...?

Could this tiny Maldives island hold the key to Malaysia Airlines flight MH370?
In Kuda Huvadhoo some villagers believe an aircraft they saw last year could be the missing flight. Locals on the 60ha Island are questioning why investigators involved in the search for the Boeing 777 haven’t asked them about it.

Several told The Weekend Australian they saw the red and blue markings similar to that of the plane which was heading in that direction after departing Kuala Lumpur.

Humaam Dhonmamk, said he also saw the markings on a plane. He said it flew over as he was bringing his washing in from the clothesline.

“I saw the blue and red on a bit of the side.

“I heard the loud noise of it after it went over. I told the police this too.”

For the past year, the Australian-led search had focused on the southern Indian Ocean.

That search was based on a calculation of ‘pings’ between satellights and the plane, estimated fuel, weather conditions, time, likely impact and other flight variables.

But, incorrect data could mean the search is in the wrong place.

A "volunteer investigator" is seeking funds to search near the Maldives...

Volunteer investigator says wreckage lying in the Bay of Bengal needs to be explored, could be MH370
A VOLUNTEER investigator has launched an appeal to search for MH370 in the Maldives, in the wake of local residents’ claims.

Andre Milne and his team say a wreckage currently lying in the Bay of Bengal in between Malaysia and India needs to be investigated to rule out whether or not it is the missing plane.

MH370 search will not be expanded further: Australia
The hunt for missing Malaysia Airlines Flight MH370 will not be expanded beyond its current area without specific new leads, Australian officials said Wednesday, dousing relatives' hopes the search could last beyond early next year.

In April, more than a year after the plane vanished en route from Kuala Lumpur to Beijing with 239 people on board, Malaysia, Australia and China announced that the search zone would double in size.

This boosted the area of the remote southern Indian Ocean being scoured by three specialist vessels to 120,000 square kilometres (46,300 square miles), with officials saying the wider search could take another year due to the difficult conditions.

But on Wednesday, the Australian-led Joint Agency Coordination Centre (JACC) said it would not expand the search - which has already proved arduous and expensive - without new data.

Mathematician May Have Just Solved The Mystery Of Missing Flight MH370
Rob WaughJune 9, 2015

A mathematics professor may have solved the mystery of Malaysia Airlines Flight MH370, which disappeared without trace last year with 239 people on board.

Conspiracy theorists have suggested various outlandish theories including the idea that the flight was abducted by aliens.

But the reality may be a little more prosaic, according to applied mathematician Dr. Goong Chen of Texas A&M University.

His computer models suggest that the flight entered a vertical dive over the Indian Ocean, entering the water cleanly and without breaking up.

The simulated crash solves some of the mysteries surrounding MH370 — such as the lack of debris and spilled oil on the surface.

Dr. Chen suggests that the plane’s body and wings sank rapidly — explaining the lack of an oil slick on the surface.

Dr. Chen says, “The true final moments of MH370 are likely to remain a mystery until someday when its black box is finally recovered and decoded.

“But forensics strongly supports that MH370 plunged into the ocean in a nosedive.”

Another theory (although I had heard of this very early on as a cause of fire in the plane)...

Batteries offer best explanation for MH370 crash: investigator
A SIMPLE new theory for MH370’s disappearance points the finger directly at the 221kg of lithium ion batteries on board.

US pilot and aviation engineer Bruce Robertson has outlined the theory on his website, based on known facts about the Malaysia Airlines flightand what it was carrying.

He suggests the lithium ion batteries caught fire sending a cloud of deadly carbon monoxide into the cabin.

Pilot Zaharie Ahmad Shahsuccumbed to the fumes, but co-pilot Fariq Abdul Hamid survived long enough to turn the plane around and place it into a descent.

500 days... not a single thing found yet. :/

500 days into MH370 search and still nothing found
THE man overseeing the search for MH370 never dreamt they would still be hunting for the plane 500 days after it disappeared.
Today marks the undesirable milestone in the baffling mystery of the Malaysia Airlines’ flight, that vanished soon after taking off from Kuala Lumpur to fly to Beijing on March 8 last year.

It is thought to have ditched into the southern Indian Ocean more than 2000km west of Perth but an extensive air, sea and underwater search has found no trace of the aircraft.

Something happened...

Plane parts found on island of Reunion on east coast of Africa near Madagascar but is it MH370?
A MYSTERIOUS piece of plane debris has washed up on the French Indian Ocean island of La Reunion, prompting speculation it could be part of the missing Malaysia Airlines flight MH370.

Reunion island is more than 6000km from where the plane was last known to fly before it vanished on March 8, 2014.

The two-metre long piece of wreckage, which seemed to be part of a wing, was found by people cleaning up a beach.

“It was covered in shells, so one would say it had been in the water a long time,” said one witness.

The Australian Transport Safety Bureauwas notified by French officials on Reunion Island of the discovery.

The ATSB is working with the plane’s manufacturer, Boeing, to identify if it is from MH370.

“We’ve received some pictures of the item and we are having them assessed by the manufacturers as to what they may be,” ATSB spokesman Joe Hattley told AAP. “First we need to determine what the item is and whether it is part of a Boeing 777 and then if it is part of MH370.

Verification needed

A lot of what I've read on this sounded skeptical that the debris could have reached Reunion, but you kind of have to hope it somehow did just so the families can finally get some closure.

Confirmed similar aircraft...

One step closer to solving MH370 mystery
AUTHORITIES have confirmed debris found on a French island in the east Indian Ocean is part of a Boeing 777 - the same aircraft as the missing Malaysia Airlines flight MH370.

Part of a number on a piece of aircraft wreckage confirmed the type of aircraft, according to a Malaysian transport official who said investigators are “moving close to solving the mystery of MH370”.

“From the part number, it is confirmed that it is from a Boeing 777 aircraft. This information is from MAS (Malaysia Airlines). They have informed me,” Deputy Transport Minister Abdul Aziz Kaprawi told AFP.

Could've been worse--it could've washed up on North Sentinel Island. Then we'd know where the debris was but never be able to get to it.

And remember, "I'm-a Luigi, number one!"

Rumours about a door, as well...

MH370: Reports a plane door has been found on Reunion Island
THE search for parts on the remote island of Reunion in the Indian Ocean has now reportedly turned up a plane door.
Sky News is reporting the door was discovered on a different beach to the one where a wing part washed up last week.

The debris is being held at a local police station, Sky News reports.
And this...
Another beach cleaner, Nicolas Ferrier, told London’s Telegraph newspaper that in May he found a seat, which he had assumed was from a bus, plus two suitcases, and burned them as part of his job.

“I could have found many things that belonged to the plane, and burnt them, without realising,” he said.

Getting closer... one barnacle at a time...

Barnacles on debris could provide clues to missing MH370 - experts
Barnacles encrusted on a piece of plane debris that washed up on the French island of Reunion might help unravel the mystery of missing Malaysia Airlines flight MH370 that disappeared last year with 239 passengers and crew on board.

Malaysia said on Sunday the piece of debris, a 2-2.5 metre (6.5-8 feet) wing surface known as flaperon, had been identified as being from a Boeing 777, the same model as the missing Malaysian plane. Investigators in France are expected to determine whether the piece came from MH370 or not by Wednesday.

MH370 is believed to have crashed in the southern Indian Ocean, about 3,700 km (2,300 miles) away from Reunion.

Based on photographs, ecologists in Australia believe the crustaceans clinging to the wing piece are goose or stalk barnacles. ... r-BBlmFd8?
