Flight MH370 Conspiracy Theories

We are now over 100 days in since the disappearance of  Malaysia Airlines flight MH370. What was in the news headlines 24-7 for months has faded into a back story but still the search continues. How can a commercial airliner of this size just completely disappear off of the face of the earth without a trace?

The conspiracy theories are multiplying online and they certainly are interesting to say the least. I read through the list and there are plausibility to them all. Which ones makes the most sense to you?

Flight MH370: The Mystery

A new book entitled Flight MH370: The Mystery puts for the idea that the plane may have been shot down during military training exercises that went wrong. “ In an age where a stolen smartphone can be pinpointed to any location on earth, the vanishing of a cruise liner and 227 passengers is the greatest mystery since the Mary Celeste. Experienced author and journalist Nigel Cawthorne has researched with incredible swiftness and thoroughness to reveal the most compelling explanations behind the mystery gripping the world.”


Alien Abduction

Of course there are lots of talk and ideas online regarding the possibility of an alien abduction.  It’s an easy idea to put forward but we haven’t seen any conclusive evidence in the form of videos or images from the area or at that time. If there was an alien element to the disappearance you would think that photos or videos would have surfaced by now. That doesn’t go to say that I don’t believe myself but I would feel better if I seen something concrete.

Chinese Kidnapping

The Mirror puts forward an interesting concept regarding a relationship between the Chinese and Edward Snowden. Specifically that the Chinese were interested in technology detailed by Edward Snowden.

“So we have the American IBM Technical Storage Executive for Malaysia, a man working in mass storage aggregation for the company implicated by the Snowden papers for providing their services to assist the National Security Agency in surveilling the Chinese,” he wrote.

“And now this bunch of US chip guys working for a global leader in embedded processing solutions (embedded smart phone tech and defense contracting) all together..on a plane..And disappeared.. Coincidence??”

He goes on to that the plane itself was kidnapped by Chinese authorities to uncover more about Snowden’s revelations. Source

There are also about a hundred other ideas floating out in cyberspace which range from a second Bermuda Triangle, to structural problems with the craft, insurance fraud and military mishaps. At this point nothing is conclusive and no idea seems better than the next but they all have an element that makes them in the very least conceivable. It’s as scary thought that we may never know what happened to Flight MH370  but for now we revel in conspiracy theories.
