Missing Flight Update (MH370): More conspiracy theories surface

It has been nine months and Malaysia Airlines Flight MH370 is still missing and there is still evidence lacking as to why the aircraft mysteriously disappeared.

Many conspiracy theories have been released regarding the reason behind the disappearance of Malaysia Airlines Flight MH370. CNN recently conducted a poll that resulted in 1 out of 10 Americans believe that the plane was seized by "beings from another dimension, time travellers, or aliens," and that these unknown elements might have something to do with the sudden disappearance of the plane. Meanwhile, 21 per cent of those who answered the poll believe that the plane landed and did not crash, and that the people from the flight may have survived.

Several other conspiracy theorists say that the aircraft might have been hijacked and taken to a different and remote location. The website, humansarefree.com believes in this hijack theory and has posted it on their website. Several other websites are claiming that the flight MH17, the plane that unfortunately crashed in Ukraine, is the actual flight MH370 and that it was crashed in a "false flag" operation to dishonor Russia.

A new book called "Flight MH370 – The Mystery" is suggesting that the flight might have been accidentally affected by the ongoing US-Thai strike fighters in a military exercise that was being held in the South China Sea during the time that the plane went missing.

Those who are concocting these conspiracy theory are being backed by the lack of information or evidence regarding the disappearance of the flight. Anwar Ibrahim, the Malaysian government opposition leader, accused the government of keeping mum about the vital information that could help in locating the plane. Ibrahim has also criticised the country for not being able to find the plane despite having a sophisticated radar system. Tim Clark, the chief executive of Emirates, share the same doubt in the situation and the ongoing investigation.
