We may never known why MH 370 vanished during a routine flight from Kuala Lumpur to Beijing last March. But our fascination with the topic may not subside any time soon.
Last week, PBS's Nova program offered a balanced report on what may have happened, narrated by Miles O'Brien. If you haven't seen it and you have some time, it's worth watching. The full program can be found above.
Also, if you're not already aware, a provocative interview with Emirates CEO Tim Clark made it across social media today. "My own view is that probably control was taken of that airplane,"Clark told Germany's Spiegel magazine. Asked to expand on the theory, Clark told the magazine:
It's anybody's guess who did what. We need to know who was on the plane in the detail that obviously some people do know. We need to know what was in the hold of the aircraft. And we need to continue to press all those who were involved in the analysis of what happened for more information. I do not subscribe to the view that the Boeing 777, which is one of the most advanced in the world and has the most advanced communication platforms, needs to be improved with the introduction of some kind of additional tracking system. MH 370 should never have been allowed to enter a non-trackable situation.
