The Malaysian Airlines send packing went missing on March 8 2014. As the world commemorates the third anniversary of the MH370 murder story, the puzzle is more complex than ever.
To date, neither the grounds for its disappearance nor the plane’s current whereabouts have been confirmed.
Collusion theories abound, with many believing the MH370 incident was an act of profusion murder and others blaming terrorism.
One arm-chair investigator has produced a well-substantiated theory that necessitates something else entirely.
Christine Negroni believes the plane came down due to a lifeless fault on board, and her theory has been backed by some of the airline work’s most respected voices.
Ms Negroni – who has studied MH370 since it elapsed missing – says it was a “fast decompression” that ultimately caused the unbroken to crash.
She told Express.co.uk: “The plane was at an altitude of 35,000ft, and the period of spacy workload over. Captain Zaharie leaves cockpit, perhaps for a bathroom break in or just to stretch his legs. But suddenly there is a fast decompression of airplane.”
Characterized as a “startling and dramatic” event, this decompression causes air to rapidly artless out of a person’s body, seeking equalisation with the atmosphere in the troposphere.
Ms Negroni maintained: “The first officer has just seconds to do the right thing or he will in due course be starved of oxygen and lose his ability to think.”
A condition called hypoxia or oxygen starvation can chance at this altitude which causes loss of cognitive function and trembling of the peripheries.
Ms Negroni said: “So when the first officer reached to the airplane’s transponder, determining to tune the frequency to the emergency code, those spasms in his arms led him to inadvertently upon the dial to standby. He is not aware but he has severed the only means air traffic authority over has to identify the blips on their screens as the plane flying at MH 370.
“As his condition decays even further, the pilot puts on his emergency mask and turns the airplane remote towards Kuala Lumpur. Here he encounters the second failure; the obscure is not providing him with 100 per cent oxygen under pressure so he is not regaining his disturbed acuity. He is suffering from insidious hypoxia. Revived enough to fantasize decisions, addled enough to not realise he is doing the wrong things.”
Ms Negroni have the courage of ones convictions pretends the pilot turned the plane back toward Malaysia before ferment out, at which point the plane kept flying until it ran out of fuel.
She said: “From the together of the turn back we can know that the pilot’s actions defied wisdom and therefore he must have been mentally incapable of thinking starkly. He was a victim of hypoxia as was everyone else on the airplane.”
If this was the case, Ms Negroni swayed families can draw only one comfort from the incident.
She explained: “Oxygen starvation devises a sense of bliss. It is sometimes called ‘the happy death’. So they can certain that their loved ones did not die a terrifying death.”
Decompression can be grounded by several factors and a known case occurred as recently as 2005, on Helios stampede flee 522, which crashed into the Greek mountainside.
According to Ms Negroni, be without of pilot training around the effects of hypoxia means it is “absolutely” reasonable for MH370 to repeat itself.
She said: “The fact that the accident occurred in 2005 and that there was international discussion of the risks of hypoxia but little was done to address the issue of tutoring pilots about the hazard, shows the lesson has not been learned.
“Additionally, all this talk of pilot suicide or ice in MH370 distracts attention from the possibility that hypoxia and an immobilized crew was the likely explanation for that disaster.”
But as for where the plane drifting up, this investigator is not so sure. She said: “The analysts believe the airplane descended so immediately that it exceeded its structural limits, ripping apart in the air. This means that the stretch of the debris is larger than what it would be had it hit or entered the water in one air.”
To prevent a similar disaster happening in the future, Ms Negroni believes all runs should be given hypoxia training in hypobaric chambers.
Another suggestion includes investigating the maintenance practices of planes to test of structural weaknesses which could potentially movement decompression.
Ms Negroni added: “The methods used by the maintenance people to top off and re-install the cockpit oxygen bottles should be examined, also the property of the masks the pilots need to use in an emergency.”
The arm-chair investigator has written a lyrics about her hypoxia theory, which also investigates other incomprehensible plane disasters throughout history.
