Fight MH370 made rapid descent into the Indian Ocean: Report
Nov 2, Kuala Lumpur: Investigators, who have been investigating flight MH370's disappearance believe that the plane most likely made a rapid and uncontrolled descent into the Indian Ocean.
According to reports, plane which had disappeared while flying to Beijing from Kuala Lumpur with 239 people on board in March 2014, had rapidly descended into the ocean. Satellite data also indicated a "high and increasing rate of descent", said the report.
"You can draw your own conclusions as to whether that means someone was in control or not," the ATSB's search director Peter Foley told reporters.
Meanwhile, Australian Transport Safety Bureau (ATSB) said analysis of two recovered wing flaps showed they were not in the landing position when the plane went down in the Indian Ocean. So it couldnt have been in landing position, answering to this query the new report states that a wing flap which carried MH370's unique numbers was "most likely in the retracted position at the time it separated from the wing", meaning it had not been readied for landing.
The report also used mathematical models and replica parts to work out how the confirmed debris might have moved through the water, and so where the plane most likely came down.
