Malaysia Airlines Flight MH370, which disappeared without a trace in March last year with 239 people on board, could have nosedived into the Indian Ocean, entering the water cleanly without breaking up, a mathematics professor said.
This explains why searchers have failed to find debris and spilled oil on the surface of the ocean, Yahoo News quoted Dr. Goong Chen of Texas A&M University as saying.
Using computer models, Chen suggested that the plane’s body and wings sank rapidly.
“The true final moments of MH370 are likely to remain a mystery until someday when its black box is finally recovered and decoded,” he said.
“But forensics strongly supports that MH370 plunged into the ocean in a nosedive.”
The aircraft, a Boeing 777-200ER, was flying from Kuala Lumpur to Beijing when it vanished on March 8, 2014.
