    We all remember the news stories about Malaysia Airlines Flight 370, which set out from Kuala Lumpur to Beijing and should have arrived six hours later Instead, it left Malaysian airspace with a standard message to sign off and then, seemingly, disappeared Within fifteen minutes, air traffic controllers in Hanoi were wondering why MH370 had not radioed in to establish contact it never would Declared missing, a search began, which left specialists discussing what had happened and why the pla We all remember the news stories about Malaysia Airlines Flight 370, which set out from Kuala Lumpur to Beijing and should have arrived six hours later Instead, it left Malaysian airspace with a standard message to sign off and then, seemingly, disappeared Within fifteen minutes, air traffic controllers in Hanoi were wondering why MH370 had not radioed in to establish contact it never would Declared missing, a search began, which left specialists discussing what had happened and why the plane had seemingly veered off in a different direction than the flight path it had been following Had the plane come down in the Southern Indian Ocean, was it hi jacked Author Jeff Wise was one of CNN s aviation analysts and, when the story was headline news, he appeared on television often several times a day to give his opinions as to what might have happened and speculate with other experts Like all news stories, though, this one was eventually replaced by others and, despite there being no answers, it was given less and less coverage For Jeff Wise, though, and a scattered group of amateur experts around the world and united by the internet, this story was far from over Analysing data, mathematical formula and discussing theories, they named themselves the Independent Group and included experts as far apart as New Zealand, the UK, Frankfurt and Sweden Wise refers to them, only half jokingly, as the Bletchley Park of aeronautical sleuthing Although much of this short ebook can be hard to follow with the author discussing various pings and electronic handshakes the plane transmitted it is also riveting Obviously, there have been theories about what happened to MH370 and they range from the obvious mechanical failure to the absurd alien abduction There is no way to know, at the moment, whether this theory is correct or not I will not spoil the read for you by explaining the authors conclusions although Wise has unveiled his thoughts in the New York Magazine before This kindle single is an expanded version and, when he outlines what he thinks happened on board, it reads like a thriller However, we have to remember that this was a real plane and real people were on board, with families who have still not received answers to what actually happened to their loved ones However, it is hard not to be impressed by his research and this is an intriguing and interesting read

    So, let s make sure we re on the same page 1 We never found any wreckage from MH370 in the Indian Ocean 2 Therefore it must have actually flown north, toward Kazakhstan 3 But, since the satellite communications data SAID it went south, that data must have been faked.Therefore, Russian commandos hijacked the plane, flew it to the Baikonur Cosmodrome, and faked its disappearance to pay back the west for levying sanctions in the aftermath of the invasion of the Ukraine Got all that Yeah, me nei So, let s make sure we re on the same page 1 We never found any wreckage from MH370 in the Indian Ocean 2 Therefore it must have actually flown north, toward Kazakhstan 3 But, since the satellite communications data SAID it went south, that data must have been faked.Therefore, Russian commandos hijacked the plane, flew it to the Baikonur Cosmodrome, and faked its disappearance to pay back the west for levying sanctions in the aftermath of the invasion of the Ukraine Got all that Yeah, me neither

    This should have been much better Aside from the numerous typographical errors and grammatical mistakes, the entirety of the story kept pushing a ridiculous theory that had little supporting evidence and even less motivational fortitude Perhaps the plane went north instead of south if we completely ignore one data set from the satellites Perhaps the hijackers were such criminal masterminds that they predicted hacking into a computer satellite plane system and planting false data in a progr This should have been much better Aside from the numerous typographical errors and grammatical mistakes, the entirety of the story kept pushing a ridiculous theory that had little supporting evidence and even less motivational fortitude Perhaps the plane went north instead of south if we completely ignore one data set from the satellites Perhaps the hijackers were such criminal masterminds that they predicted hacking into a computer satellite plane system and planting false data in a program that had never been used to track a plane to such a degree before Way too many what ifs No motivations And even less evidence I was hoping for some clarity and just got some outlandish, crazy hypotheses I think it was a Smithsonian documentary that managed to shed muchlight on the situation

    Well, theories about what happened to flight 370 are a dime a dozen, the author relies heavily in hijacking and Russian intelligence retaliation as a cause of the plane s disappearance The lack of debris at the time the book was written is also used as a reason the author thinks the plane did not went south but north somehow avoiding detection and landing in Kazakhstan.New debris has been found yet none has been confirmed to be from flight 370 to the date The newest, I believe is the death Well, theories about what happened to flight 370 are a dime a dozen, the author relies heavily in hijacking and Russian intelligence retaliation as a cause of the plane s disappearance The lack of debris at the time the book was written is also used as a reason the author thinks the plane did not went south but north somehow avoiding detection and landing in Kazakhstan.New debris has been found yet none has been confirmed to be from flight 370 to the date The newest, I believe is the death dive , the pilot s deliberately made the plane crash into the ocean hours after signaling off manually Good Night Malaysian Three Seven Zero

    3.5 stars.The mystery of Malaysia Flight MH370 is one that still boggles pretty much everyone I don t know what I was expecting from this book by Jeff Wise, I knew he couldn t possibly provide much fact about what happened to the airliner, but I was expecting a littlethan educated conspiracy theories I have to give him some credit, his theories were interesting, and in the prologue he did mention that he would be stating his theories Our data didn t lead to anything so it must have bee 3.5 stars.The mystery of Malaysia Flight MH370 is one that still boggles pretty much everyone I don t know what I was expecting from this book by Jeff Wise, I knew he couldn t possibly provide much fact about what happened to the airliner, but I was expecting a littlethan educated conspiracy theories I have to give him some credit, his theories were interesting, and in the prologue he did mention that he would be stating his theories Our data didn t lead to anything so it must have been the Russians Kind of a far reach He seemed to know what he was talking about as far as general information about the flight, and it really was a thought provoking read It makes me want to knowabout what happened to MH370, but unfortunately, I may never know.I still say Aliens

    I ve always found the mystery of what happened to flight MH370 intriguing Despite our technological advances, we still don t have a definitive conclusion of MH370 accident.The author in this book gathers the facts and everything that was done for MH370 to try to come with a theory that explains what happened Unfortunately, his theory is so ridiculous and absurd that it touches the boundaries of fiction The theory lacks strong basis and has many illogical jumps In addition to this, the scenar I ve always found the mystery of what happened to flight MH370 intriguing Despite our technological advances, we still don t have a definitive conclusion of MH370 accident.The author in this book gathers the facts and everything that was done for MH370 to try to come with a theory that explains what happened Unfortunately, his theory is so ridiculous and absurd that it touches the boundaries of fiction The theory lacks strong basis and has many illogical jumps In addition to this, the scenario of what happened that the author proposes needs to be perfect, too perfect in fact, for it to hold up.Disappointing read for an interesting topic

    Interesting read very detailed, hypotheses well supported.Too bad this came out right before we did find actual wreckage from MH370 Otherwise this might have become a bigger deal.

    Very insightfulI thought the author made a lot of interesting and insightful points in this book His research seemed very solid as did many of his deductions And he was upfront about his own fears that a mistake had been made by himself and other investigators when they concluded early on that the plane had most likely gone south spoiler alert I do have some degree of difficulty with the authors final conclusion about who exactly hijacked the flight He comes up with the Russian govern Very insightfulI thought the author made a lot of interesting and insightful points in this book His research seemed very solid as did many of his deductions And he was upfront about his own fears that a mistake had been made by himself and other investigators when they concluded early on that the plane had most likely gone south spoiler alert I do have some degree of difficulty with the authors final conclusion about who exactly hijacked the flight He comes up with the Russian government as the bad guys, citing certain circumstantial evidence, including where he feels the plane landed if it actually went north, instead of south as previously assumed When another Malaysian flight is shot down by the Russians sometime later 6 months or so, I think , he feels this bolsters his theory He doesn t have much of a theory as to why exactly the Russian government would do this, except a rather vague idea about Russia trying to pick a fight with the United States, possibly with an eye to starting world war III I find this scenario to be a little far fetched With the biggest pieces of evidence to bolster his case being where he thinks the plane landed and the other Malaysian plane being shot down, it seems like a stretch I think regular terrorists were dismissed too soon from his scenario The consensus being that terrorists wouldn t have tried so hard to hide hijacking a plane There would have been demands and hostages being shot, right Normally, yes But maybe the terrorists did this because they wanted the plane for some reason They want this plane, but they don t want anyone to know they have it Why To use in some major terrorist operation down the line Far fetched Sure But noso than the Russian government being behind it What could they use the plane find for Delivering a dirty bomb or a nuke I keep thinking about the EMP scenario, where a singleness detonated over central North America would shut down almost all of the United States and Canada, taking years and possibly decades to recover from The bomb would have to be detonated between 25 and 500 miles above the ground The world record height of a jumbo jet flying is just over 18 miles, because their engines need oxygen, and it gets thinner the higher you go Could one reach 25 miles Or is this too silly to even contemplate If a terror group actually had a nuke, I m sure they would be able to come up with an easier way to deliver it, right
