Missing Plane Essay

629 words - 3 pages


Mainland-Island Malaysia, an insular region, is considered a part of the Southeast Asia's realm. It is categorized as mainland-island Malaysia because one portion of its territory lies on a continent, and another portion is an island. Recent tragic news comes out from mainland Malaysia. Kuala Lumpur International Airport announced on March 8, 2014 that flight MH370 disappeared with 239 people on board. It was traveling from Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia to Beijing, China. The causes of the lost jetliner and authorities delaying on informing on the missing plane, created a chaos among relatives of the 239 people that had disappeared.
According to the article, The Last Hope is Dashed, Najib Razak the prime minister informed the flight MH370 crashed in the southern Indian Ocean; a week later after it lost contact with air traffic controllers. This information killed ...view middle of the document...

Family members were indignant that the conclusion of the missing flight was based on satellite data and not from providing them clear evidence of what really happened to the plane.
Some countries such as Australia, China, Japan and the U.S. have been assisting Malaysia in the search of remains from the jetliner in the Indian Ocean; as a way of consolation to the family members as well as having a clear explanation of what really happened with the flight MH370. Mr. McLaughlin said, “We can’t know when it ran out of fuel and whether it plunged, or if it glided into the Indian Ocean.” Furthermore, he stated that they were still searching for answers to this tragedy. A concrete answer to all the questions will take months or even years for authorities to prove the real causes of the missing plane.
In respect to one possible cause of the absent plane, Sridharan reported that on March 4, just three days before the flight disappeared, a man made a phone call to the Beijing airport reporting future terrorism in Beijing. However, investigators said that there isn’t any relationship with the mysterious phone call and the lost plane of Malaysia. Qin Gang, a Chinese's foreign minister said that the jetliner belonged to Malaysia; as a result, Malaysia should take the major responsibility to come up with an accurate response to the family members of the passengers boarding the flight as well as a response to the community.
The article, Missing Malaysia plane: Search ‘regains record signal’ describe the possible causes of the lost plane MH370. In between those causes are the possibilities of sabotage, pilot action or mechanical issues. Until today, there is neither a clear or official explanation of the cause and result of the missing plane. For the moment, Australia’s navy has been informing the people of two underwater signals that come from electronic equipment in the southern Indian Ocean. Houston said that he hoped they can confirm in the following days that the signals are coming from the plane MH370. If so, they can have an official explanation and enough evidence to prove that the jetliner is on the bottom of the Indian Ocean.
