Yesterday, the show MH370: The Plane that Disappeared debuted on Netflix. It’s a 3-part show that covers the Malaysia Airlines flight that disappeared in 2014. I couldn’t wait, so watched all 3 episodes yesterday.
The show covers three theories about the plane’s disappearance:
Theory 1: The pilot committed suicide/murder.
Theory 2: Russian hijackers took over the plane to distract people from the war in Crimea.
Theory 3: The plane was intercepted/shot down by the U.S. due to its cargo heading to China.
I don’t think the documentary has any new information about the plane’s disappearance. And, it doesn’t cover all of the possible conspiracy theories.
MH370 has always haunted and mystified me. The hardest part of the show for me was the footage of the family members weeping. I can’t even imagine the pain they were going through with all of the loss plus the uncertainty and mystery surrounding that loss.
After watching the show, I think Occam’s razor applies here, meaning the simplest explanation is usually the best one. And that is Theory 1, the pilot.
Have you watched this documentary, or are you planning to? What are your thoughts?
Nancy lives near Dallas, Texas, with her husband and three kids. Her favorite vacations include the beach, cruising and everything Disney.
I had to turn it off, too sad. I then watched the Chris Rock Special on Netflix and it was really funny. Check it out, IMHO.
On another topic….Nick over at FM keeps touting these free cruise offers…….I say Nick, you need to splurge on a really nice cruise ship and a suite rather than a sub optimal room on a rust bucket. again IMHO.
@Danny Yes, it was very sad. 🙁 I also watched the Chris Rock special and thought it was hilarious. I like these free cruise offers, but I won’t travel to Atlantic City or anywhere else for a match.
I doubt I’ll watch it, especially since it won’t offer any kind of resolution on what really happened. I’d lean towards theory 1 as well. But we may never know for sure… which is mind boggling. Here we are 9 years later and still no answers, and it certainly wasn’t for a lack of trying.
All around such an awful, sad event.
@projectx You’re right, we may never know and we may never find most of the plane. 🙁
