Tourists found remains of an airplane while on vacation that could be part of the missing flight MH370. At the moment, they were staying at a hotel in the island nation Mauritius. They showed the remains to the hotel owner and told him they had found the debris about 560 km east of the main island.
William Auguste is the owner of the Mourouk Ebony Hotel and he told the press the remains “sure looked like part of an airplane”. He even said they were from the inside part of an aircraft based on wallpaper found in the pieces.
Australia is leading the search for the missing Boeing 777 and the 238 people who were on board when it disappeared in March 2014. The efforts searching efforts have focused on the Southern Indian Ocean. According to the schedule, the investigation will finish in June when they are supposed to have covered the whole area.
Australian authorities still have not analyzed the debris, but Darren Chester who is the Australian transport minister said that it was “an item of interest”.
After 2 years, there is still nothing concrete
Every time there’s a catastrophe, conspiracy theories arise, especially when there isn’t enough information to prove them wrong. Regarding MH370, there are many of those. The most common is the terrorist attack theory which claims the airplane was hijacked and flown to Afghanistan where the people are being held against their will. Another one but very unlikely believe is that the United States government took the airplane to question 22 Chinese specialist about stealth technology.
One theory stands out for its implications, some people think that the airplane was shut-down by military forces and governments are covering it up. In response, many international officials have denied these accusations, but even though there is no proof, the unrest among the people grows. The families of the victims feel authorities are hiding something from them. The feeling is further fed by the delay in the investigation and the fact that some official reports have been proved shady by independent investigators.
