Malaysia Airlines Flight MH370 search ends

BEIJING/ CANBERRA: The Malaysia Airlines Flight MH370 search has officially ended on January 17, as announced by the the Joint Agency Coordination Center, Australia.

In 2014, the Malaysia Airlines Flight MH370 suddenly disappeared in the waters and nobody has any idea yet of what happened to the airline or its passengers.

After almost three years of search by various countries to help Malaysia find the plane, only reports of debris being found every now and then appeared in a search that spanned 1,20,000 square kilometer or 46,000-square mile in mostly Australian waters.

No concrete evidence or even dead bodies were found ever to declare that the ill-fated Malaysia Airlines plane had crashed at a particular spot.

On board were citizens of Australia, Canada, China, France, Hong Kong, India, Indonesia, Iran, Malaysia, the Netherlands, New Zealand, Russia, Taiwan, Ukraine and the US.

Plane crashes and disappearances under mysterious circumstances have always etched their way into curious minds that can’t help but speculate over the possible and plausible theories over what could have happened.

Three years on, the families of the victims remain almost completely in the dark about what happened to their loved-ones, reports The Guardian.

Many Chinese relatives remain deeply suspicious of the official narrative, which is that the plane veered off course shortly after takeoff, doubled back across the Malay Peninsula, and ultimately crashed into the Indian Ocean for reasons that are still obscure.

An emailed statement, that was reportedly send to next of kin on Tuesday, said: “Despite every effort using the best science available, cutting-edge technology, as well as modelling and advice from highly skilled professionals who are the best in their field, unfortunately, the search has not been able to locate the aircraft.”

“The decision to suspend the underwater search has not been taken lightly nor without sadness,” it added.
