Malaysia Flight MH370: Indian Ocean Fate

It was announced today by the Malaysian Prime Minister that the Malaysian Airlines Flight MH370 went down in the south Indian Ocean, far from any possible landing site, and all aboard are presumed dead.

The fate of the plane is based on Inmarsat satellite data. The plane is believed to have gone down about 1,500 miles southwest of Perth, Australia.

What the plane was doing in that remote place and why has not yet been discovered. Either it was taken there deliberately by one or both of the pilots or the aircraft flew on autopilot until it ran out of fuel.

I speculated last week that the pilot Zaharie Shah deliberately flew the plane to a remote location as a result of his own emotional trauma. There is still no compelling reason to believe the pilot wasn't responsible for the crash.

Retrieving the plane's black box is considered crucial to discovering the true story of the plane's fate. The US Pacific Command is sending a black box locator to the south Indian Ocean in case a debris field is located.
