Most of us kept track with news of MH370 for the first 2 weeks or so, but that's when people started to lose hope. 2 weeks and they couldn't find any clue as to what had happened aboard the lost flight. Most Blamed the Malaysian government for the way they handled the disaster and accused them of conspiracy, hiding vital information from the relatives of the victims. I understand where the theories are coming from but in reality, there's no way that the souls aboard Flight 370 are alive. We all wish the opposite but it's true unfortunately. I don't believe the plane crashed in the indian ocean. Another incident that was similar to this(not in magnitude of search size but search area) was Air France 447, service from Rio de Janeiro to Charles de Gaulle.
The plane entered a blindspot on Atlantic radar and when senegalese radar tried contacting the plane when it should have been in their airspace there was no response. Search and rescue teams went out into the blindspot area where AF447 should have went down, but to no avail. There was no sign of the airliner. It took 5 days to find some wreckage and another 2 1/2 years to figure out the truth of what happened. With MH370, is this going to be possible. Will we ever know what happened to the 777? We don't know the answers right now, if we ever will. As of now, people are again brought to the attention of another airliner, MH17 which was shot down over Ukranian airspace. Again, we don't know exactly who is responsible for this disaster.
When the plane first went missing, we all screamed "Terrorists!" because of two iranians that happened to be on board. Because of the world's focus on terrorism, we have failed to realize that there are other threats that haunt our world. Most crashes in the last decade were based on pilot error and mechanical problems. Take for example Asiana from 2013 and Air France from 2008. Malaysian's biggest mistake has been not caring enough for the passenger's loved ones. their needs and worries are the most important in a disaster like this. We all know that their curiosities about what happened to their friends and family have not been satisfied.
I hope one day this mystery will be solved and there will finally be some closure concerning what happened to the 777.
