Astonishing claims have been made in a new book, suggesting that the cause of the Malaysia Airlines flight MH370 crash has been covered up.
Back in March 2014, MH370 was en route from Kuala Lumpur to Beijing, when it inexplicably changed course and headed south over the Indian Ocean, before seemingly vanishing with 239 people on board.
Since then, the fate of the aircraft has remained nothing short of a tragic mystery. Even two and a half years later, we still know practically nothing about the investigation which is supposedly ongoing.
No-one seems to want to take responsibility or even face the heartbroken families who have been trying to figure out what happened to their loved ones.
Veteran reporter Christine Negroni has now shed serious light on why this might be in her new book, The Crash Detectives.
The Daily Beast reports that Negroni was ‘disturbed’ by the discovery that: “For all the apparent effort to try to solve the mystery of MH370, authorities may not be as committed to finding out what went wrong.”
She revealed that one year before the aircraft disappeared, company auditors said that the airline wasn’t compliant with its own rules, for the frequency of essential information sent in regular bursts of data via satellite from its fleet of planes to the airline’s HQ.
So legally, it should never have flown in the first place.
It’s believed that because Malaysia’s Ministry of Transport and a Department of Civil Aviation did not pick up on this, the government are now trying to cover it all up and accept no accountability for their actions.
But, lets not forget, the people who suffer most from this lack of response are the families of the passengers and crew. Until the plane is found, speculation will continue to be rife.
Our thoughts are with those friends and families who still don’t know the fate of their loved ones.
