The mystery surrounding the Malaysia airline plane, which vanished over the south Indian ocean carrying 239 passengers and crew from Kuala Lumpar to Beijing March last, may finally have an alternate explanation.
One of aviation’s biggest mysteries, appears to have been solved by a team of mathematicians from Texas A&M University at Qatar.
The research published in the Notices of the American Mathematical Society, the membership journal of the world’s premier mathematical organization, used computer simulations to model what could have happened to MH370.
According to the research, the plane nosedived into the Indian ocean at a 90 degree angle, which means it would have sunk to the bottom of the ocean in under a minute.
That is the reason why rescuers did not find any debris or oil near the area where the plane crash.
Leading author Professor Goong Chen says, “The true final moments of MH370 are likely to remain a mystery until someday when its black box is finally recovered and decoded.
But the forensic evidence strongly supports the view that MH370 plunged into the ocean in a nosedive.
