At 1:21 am the location and altitude transmitter of the plans also goes off.


As shown in the series, Subang Air Traffic Control reports that it has lost contact with MH370. Although the radar did pick up the plane’s final signal which was at 2:40. When the plane fled above Cau Mau province entering Vietnamese airspace. The plane that was supposed to land at Beijing International Airport at 6:30 a.m. did not arrive. Family members of MH370 passengers arrive at the airport at 11:00 a.m. anxious about their loved ones. As the aviation authorities inform them about the plane’s status.

Different Conspiracy theories about MH370

 One of the most controversial theories discussed was “ The Pilot”. According to aviation journalist Jeff Wise, it was the pilot of MH370, Zaharie Ahmad Shah, who was responsible for the plane’s disappearance or crash. As soon as the plane took off from Kuala Lumpur, Shah, the pilot made his co-pilot leave the seat so he could fly alone. Then he shuts the door and switched off all of the electronic devices that made the plane visible. Wise, exaggerates that Shah was in control by someone behind the mask as he kept on going. Shah hijacked the plane and kept on flying for another six hours. Until the fuel ran out and the plane crashed deep inside the ocean.


The second theory claimed by Mike Exner, an aviation expert, is the plane was hijacked by the Russians. Mike gives a possibility that there were some Russian passengers in MH370. These people might have taken control of the plane, switched off the equipment, and taken the plane to Kazakhstan.  As he says “It’s all based on fantasies, not reality.”

Another theory was explained by French Journalist Florence de Changy. Bringing into the spotlight the dispute between America and China. Changy hypothetically says that MH370 might have been carrying some cargo to China which seemed suspicious. It could have been some illegal item that was dangerous for the US or the world. The U.S. Surveillance found out about this troublesome cargo. To stop the plane from transporting the cargo to China. The US military had no choice but to cash the MH370 with a missile strike or mid-air collision.
