Book Review: Flight MH370 The Mystery by Nigel Cawthorne After taking off from Kuala Lumpur airport in Malaysia, Flight MH370, a wide bodied Boeing 777, disappeared from the radar with 227 passengers and 12 crew on board. No debris, bodies or oil slicks have been recorded. The plane and its passengers and crew have seemingly disappeared into thin air. Everybody has been asking how, what with the technology that we have today, that such a large aircraft could not be tracked, this paper-back book of 246 pages outlines the events and theories surrounding the disappearance of the MH370. It appears that the jet changed its flight path just before it was lost from radar. Many people believed that the jet blew up in midair over the southern Indian Ocean, but despite millions of dollars of search effort from the Australian Government, no trace of the aircraft was found in the waters of the Indian Ocean close to Australia. It was first thought that strange beeps from the depths of the ocean were the sonar waves from the aircraft's black box but these were later discounted by authorities. What they were is anyone�???�??�?�¢??s guess! There�???�??�?�¢??s much fascinating information outlined here especially about other airline disasters. Theres also outlined many of the theories of what happened to the MH 370 aircraft including abduction by aliens from outer space or spies who redirected the airplane into a secret landing field somewhere in a secluded desert area. Theres numerous strange things concerning the flight, like why did the mobile phones of those people on board continue to ring out after radio contact was lost. Other theories include the one that the aircraft was shot down by North Korea. Theres lots of statistics here on various aircraft and copious information on other airline disasters. I learnt a lot about aircraft and what can go wrong with them from this book. There is also a lot of dialogue outlined here from relatives of those missing in the flight. Everyone was distraught and distrusted the Malaysian Government who they had thought held back vital information. Its a highly readable and factual account but there are no photographs or an index however, but recommended as an introductory book on the subject of the mysterious disappearance of flight MH370.
