The Disappearance of Malaysia Airlines Flight 370

One of the biggest news stories in history, let alone this year, took place when the international passenger flight disappeared in the sky, while journeying from Malaysia to the People’s Republic of China on Saturday, March 8. According to reports, less than one hour after departure, the plane lost all of its connection and signal. It was last plotted by military radar at 02:15 over the Andaman Sea. The flight held a total of 227 passengers and 12 crew members.  A search began immediately, with the focus on the southern parts of the Indian Ocean. The underwater search started on October 5th and will take place for one year, costing approximately $56 million (in US dollars). The most frightening part about this case is that nothing or nobody has been found; questions have not been answered. Where is Malaysia Airlines Flight 370? There is no record of a crash or any flight debris. The unexplained disappearance has sparked conspiracy theories, capturing the attention of the entire global community and causing many to form their own opinions on what happened. The flight is still missing today.
