EERIE details have surfaced about the mystery of flight MH370, which caused the disappearance of 239 people.
In the CNN series’ real-life nightmare, former cold case investigator Paul Holes delves into this case and comes to unique conclusions on November 20 at 9 p.m.
On March 8, 2014, the Malaysia Airlines flight MH370 lost contact with ground control just 39 minutes into its journey.
This is the disturbing story to which Holes will lend his expertise on CNN’s Real Life Nightmare.
Flight MH370 had a wide range of passengers: Chinese calligraphers, a couple on a delayed honeymoon returning to their young children, a construction worker who hadn’t been home in a year.
It was around 1:21 a.m. when MH370 disappeared from radar, and at 7:24 a.m., Malaysia Airlines announced that the flight had disappeared.
According to Malaysian authorities, the last words heard from the pilot, or possibly the co-pilot, were “Good Malaysian night three seven zero”.
Satellite tracking and expert calculations have led many to speculate that the plane continued to fly for around seven hours until it ran out of fuel, and the most likely crash site would be Perth, Australia.
However, a thorough search of the possible crash site turned up no evidence.
Several conspiracy theories have veiled the tragic mystery of the flight which resulted in the disappearance of 239 passengers and crew.
Fear has led many to believe Vladimir Poutinethe Russian president, was responsible for the hijacking.
Jeff Wise, a writer for US Science, believed Putin had “spoofed” the plane’s navigational data, allowing it to stealthily fly into the Baikonur Cosmodrome in an attempt to “blame the West”.
Others suspected suicide.
Tan Sri Khalid Abu Bakar alleged that the disappearance could have been the result of the suicide of a crew or a passenger.
Assuming someone on board had taken out a large life insurance policy, their death would donate their family wealth or pay off the debt they owed, according to Bakar.
In case sensitive material is on board the plane, Norman Davies, historian and writer, said MH370 could have been remotely hacked and transported against the will of those on board to a secret location.
Despite where such a tragic mystery takes the mind, it remains gruesome and confusing to those close to those involved.
