MOSCOW, March 10 – RIA Novosti. Experts have proposed a new version of the crash of the Malaysia Airlines Boeing 777-200 on flight MH370 and disappeared in March 2014, writes The Mirror.
After examining photographs of a wreckage of a wing spoiler discovered off the coast of South Africa in August last year and allegedly belonging to MH370, experts have put forward a version according to which the liner could have fallen into the sea as a result of “uncontrolled high-speed dive.” According to expert Michael Exner, the spoiler “almost certainly” belongs to the Malaysian Boeing 777. In his opinion, the damage to this wreck corresponds to the version of “detachment (element. – Ed.) During descent.”
It is believed that the wreckage of the aircraft is located on the ocean floor approximately two thousand kilometers from Cape Louin, the extreme southwestern point of Australia. The area is known for its deep underwater canyons and mountains.
On the night of March 8, 2014, a Malaysia Airlines Boeing 777-200 airliner flying MH370 from Kuala Lumpur to Beijing with 227 passengers and 12 crew members, including a tourist from Russia, disappeared from the radar screens. It is believed that the plane crashed in the southern Indian Ocean. The search operation was unable to locate the crash site. Following the results of a three-year search operation, which was funded by the authorities of several countries, the wreckage of the aircraft was never found.
