The date for the one year anniversary of the missing Malaysian Airline is just around the corner, and there is still no trace of it.
On the 8th March 2014 the flight MH370 went missing whilst travelling over the South China Sea. Still, to this day, no evidence has been found to explain its disappearance.
The flight first took off from Kuala Lumpar International Airport, in Malaysia, and was expected to land in Beijing Capital International Airport, in China, but it never arrived.
There were 227 people on board this aircraft and 12 members of staff, nothing of the aircraft has ever been found, which is why it remains such a mystery.
Less than an hour and a half into the flight the aircraft had disappeared from the air traffic controllers’ radar screens and there was no more communications from the pilot. We also know that the plane carried on flying for hours after it had disappeared off the radar.
It was predicted that the plane had either taken south towards the Indian Ocean or north towards China and Russia at first. But signals were picked up in the Indian Ocean, so searches for the plane and its black box began just southwest of Perth.
Over the following weeks there were many reported sightings of debris, supposedly of the plane, however it all just turned out to be numerous amounts of waste floating around in the sea. The plane is still yet to be found. Special equipment that could scan the bottom of the sea beds in search for MH370 were then used, but to no avail – they still haven’t had any hope of finding it.
