Kuala Lumpur: Providing a fresh angle to the missing MH370 airplane probe, an air crash investigator expert has claimed that the plane was deliberately flown into the sea before it went missing.
According to a report in the Independent, air crash expert, Larry Vance, said that the alleged photographs of the plane's wing found on a beach located 2,500 miles from the search location proved that the aircraft was extended at the time of crash.
The distance between the search area and the place where debris was found showed that the plane was deliberately brought down in the ocean by the pilot.
The missing Malaysia Airlines Boeing 777 was flying from Kuala Lumpur with 239 passengers and crew onboard when it disappeared on March 8, 2014. It was en route to Beijing.
"Somebody was flying the airplane at the end of its flight," Vance was quoted as saying by an Australian TV programme.
"Somebody was flying the airplane into the water. There is no other alternate theory that you can follow," Vance said.
Malaysia, Australia and China were the three countries searching for the MH370 debris. However, last week, ministers from these countries said that the hunt for Boeing 777 will be suspended once the current search area in the Indian Ocean has been completely scoured.
Almost $135 million have been spent so far on an underwater search for the missing plane spanning 120,000 sq km in southern Indian Ocean, making it the most expensive search operation in history....
