The first time I heard about the mysterious disappearance of the Malaysia Airlines Flight 370, I was on the way to an eye appointment with my mother. I thought it was strange that an airplane that was carrying 200+ people would just vanish into thin air (Get it? Air as in airplane? Haha!! Okay I’m done).
But in all seriousness, there have been many theories to what happened to the plane and where it is now. The first theory I heard was that this was the doing of terrorists. The authorities found out that there were two men under false aliases who boarded the plane. After much investigation, it was concluded that these two men were just migrating to Germany.
Another theory of what happened was that the plane actually landed on an island. Where it landed, I’m not quite sure they know. But they widened the search to look in the Indian Ocean.
I don’t know why this incident seems so appealing to me. Maybe it’s just me wanting a good conspiracy. My dad and I love conspiracies! We read The Da Vinci Code and anything by Tom Clancy , we watch movies like National Treasure , and love to enjoy shows like 24 (which is having a spin-off series coming out in May… SO EXCITED!!). The idea that there might be something bigger planned gets me excited and on the edge of my seat.
This incident also reminds me of the case of Amelia Earhart. I remember learning she was the first woman to fly across the Atlantic Ocean on her own. During one of her expeditions, her plane went missing and was never found. People say she went into the Bermuda Triangle and then disappeared. But that’s just conspiracy. 😉
But whatever is going on with this missing plane, I just hope they find it soon. I can’t help but think about the families of the passengers who are missing. I pray that they all with have comfort and peace in this time. I can’t even imagine what it would be like to lose a loved one like that.
