The underwater search for the plane Malaysia Airlines flight 370 was suspended, after almost 3 years of searching. The plane disappeared without a trace over the Indian ocean, is reported in accordance with the joint statement from the Chinese, Australian and Malaysian officials.
These 3 countries were leading during the search for MH370, which disappeared on route from Kuala Lumpur to Beijing on 8 March 2014 with 239 passengers on Board. "Despite all the efforts, using the best scientific evidence, contemporary technology and modelling and advice from skilled professionals who are the best in their field, unfortunately, the search was able to locate the aircraft," reads the statement.
A support group for family members of those who were on Board the aircraft, issued a statement expressing disappointment. "Commercial planes can't just disappear without a trace," the statement said.
The plane's disappearance remains one of the greatest aviation mysteries in modern history. Searchers have spent millions of dollars combing tens of thousands of square miles, but still did not bring new information about the missing plane. In July last year, Australia, China and Malaysia have agreed that if the aircraft is not there by the time the search is suspended.
"It was not easy to make such a decision," said Darren Chester, the transport Minister of Australia at the time. "But because of the lack of new reliable information is not possible to continue the search. Every effort has been made. We used the highest technology and the best people to search."
March 8, 2014 MH370 the plane left the international airport of Kuala Lumpur and headed to Beijing. The report States that the plane flew down in a spiral at a speed of nearly 300 mph on the last satellite transmission. But investigators are still not able to say exactly what caused the accident, and, unfortunately, according to aviation expert Peter Golsa, debris that was discovered little that is said to enlighten us about what happened that day.
