3 years WTF people.
Flight MH370 flight still not found.
The Boeing 777 with 239 people on board vanished on March 8, 2014,
Australia, Malaysia and China jointly called off the search
operation in January.
Gomes and other family members are hoping to raise $15 million to
fund an initial search north of the previous search area, Reuters
reports. They announced the fundraising campaign in Kuala Lumpur,
Continuing the search would be far more expensive than continuing
the search for Madeleine McCann, and with no prospect whatsoever
of ever finding a living person at the end of it.
What a strange incongruous comparison.
I'm surprised you find it so.
When many millions of pounds have been spent looking for a needle in
a haystack it is legitimate to cut your losses and stop looking.
Madeleine is a more deserving cause, of course, because she might be
held by a predatory paedophile or might have been murdered by someone
who could offend again.
There have been lots of aircraft over the decades that have gone
missing and have never been found. Or have crashed for reasons that
remain unexplained. Is it worth spending hundreds of millions of
dollars to establish whether it was instrument failure or pilot error?

The crash was probably caused by a suicidal pilot. Or by fumes or
lack of oxygen due to a technical problem. It isn't like the Comet
- these things aren't happening regularly with this type of
All contact was lost/deactivated with M370 shortly after it did a
360 heading back to Malaysia. Flying back across Malaysia into the
Indian Ocean before turning South down towards Australia. If it was
suicide it was a very long suicide, about eight hours, before it
ran out of fuel and crashed into the sea. Why not just ditch in the
China sea on its original course? In order to make those two
crucial course changes somebody would need to have been at the
controls. Malaysia military saw it crossing back ovev Malay yet Air
Force jets were not scrambled to investigate - it could have been
another 9/11 in Kuala Lumper for all they knew. It's quite baffling
and the relatives understandably want to know what happened.
It's like watching a whodunnit on the telly and really wanting to
know how it ends. Unfortunately there is unlikely to be a solution to
this particular mystery. The relatives clung for a while to the hope
that the pilot had landed the plane safely and the aircraft might be
found in a jungle clearing or in the desert. If that's what happened,
the passengers and crew will long ago have died. The Amelia Earhart
flight in 1937 would then be a valid comparison. Landing on a desert
island and waiting in vain to be rescued.
