MH370 Mystery Continues


Today marks 10 years since the disappearance of Flight 370 as Malaysian authorities say they may consider reopening an investigation into one of the most enduring aviation mysteries.


On March 8, 2014, less than 40 minutes after takeoff, the Boeing 777 aircraft from Kuala Lumpur to Beijing stopped transmitting location data. Upon exiting Malaysian airspace, it veered off course toward the Indian Ocean (see flight path), with satellite data indicating the aircraft continued flying for hours. The disappearance of 239 people led to multiple international search efforts.


Theories about the plane have ranged from hijacking and murder-suicide to plane failure. Several parts have washed ashore in Mozambique and Madagascar, though the plane and its black box (with recorded flight data) remain unrecovered.


Ocean Infinity—a Texas-based robotics company that conducted a failed search in 2018—has proposed a new search area. Another avenue for clues remains in the barnacles discovered on part of the wing.
