A new report offers further evidence that Malaysian Airlines flight MH370 was diving out of control when it vanished more than two and a half years ago, NBC News reported.
The plane, which plunged into the Indian Ocean in March 2014, has been the center of competing theories of what happened on the flight. The Australian Transport Safety Bureau, which has been leading the search for MH370, said Wednesday that analysis of satellite communications and wing debris revealed that plane likely smashed into the water at a “high and increasing rate of descent.”
This also rules out the possibility of the plane being configured for a landing or a ditching, eliminating theories that the plane was hijacked or that pilots had control when it crashed. There were 239 passengers and crew on board.
