Computer Simulator Shows MAS MH370 Went Nose-First

9th Jun 2015

The latest computer simulation, developed by a team of academics from the U.S. might have an answer to the question where is Malaysia Airlines flight MH370. According to the team lead by Dr. Goong Chen, the plane, along with 239 on board, went nose-first into the Indian Ocean.

This theory would in fact explain why there is almost no debris of the MAS plane found so far, or why there are now oil spills in the area where the aircraft has supposedly crashed.

MH370's Nosedive is the Best of Five Possible Scenarios

The team of experts has simulated five different crashing scenarios, including the gliding water landing, performed by the US Airways pilot when he landed in the middle of the Hudson River in New York.

What they concluded was that the most viable way to explain the complete disappearance of MAS MH370 is a nose plunge. The group believes the 300-tonne plane plummeted into the water at 90 degrees angle.

As for the wings, the team is of opinion that they broke off almost at once and have sunk together with other debris to the bottom of the ocean.

Here is what Dr. Chen said about his team’s findings:

The true final moments of MH370 are likely to remain a mystery until someday when its black box is finally recovered and decoded. But forensics strongly support that MH370 plunged into the ocean in a nosedive.

What supports this theory is the fact that a nosedive would be the “smoothest” way of entry for the plane and would effectively have the least amount of pressure on the fuselage. That means the jet would reach the bottom of the ocean in more or less one piece.

Last month, after more than a year of searching for MH370, the search area was extended and now includes around 60,000 square kilometers of the Indian Ocean.
