There have been some interesting developments in the case of missing Malaysia Airlines flight MH370, and Travel Weekly is here to break them down for you.
The first is the claim of a private investigator into the 2014 disaster, in which the flight carrying 239 people went missing on its way from Kuala Lumpur to Beijing.
Noel O’Gara is of the belief that flight MH370 was mistakenly shot down by the Malaysian military, and told the Daily Star that there are witnesses who can account for this and help locate the missing plane, unless the Malaysian government has already covered up the blunder.
Another theory about the disappearance of flight MH370 has also been getting a lot of attention from numerous media outlets.
In the recently launched book The Hunt for MH370, journalist and author Ean Higgins has floated the theory that MH370 captain Zaharie Ahmad Shah planned the crash so he could meet his mistress on a boat in the southern Indian Ocean, so the two could disappear and start new lives together.
Higgins names Qantas’s former manager of flight training and veteran airline captain, David Shrubb, as the source of the theory.
Meanwhile, veteran Aussie aviator Dick Smith has urged airlines to introduce a small levy on fares to raise money for another search of flight MH370.
Smith told The Australian that a levy of 10 cents per fare could raise as much as $350 million towards a new ocean search, given 3.5 billion people travelled by air each year.
These recent developments come after one of the MH370 pilot’s relatives revealed they were the mystery person who answered a phone call from Shah just weeks before the plane crashed.
