The fire theory regarding missing jet is incorrect
March 20 , 2014
A veteran pilot came up with a theory regarding the missing Malaysian Airlines flight and mentioned that the fire may have caused the pilots to go off course in order to reach the nearest airport. A world waiting for answers believed the theory but writer Jeff Wise of Slate is poking holes at it.
"While it's true at MH370 did turn toward Langlawi and wound up overflying it, whoever was at the controls continued to maneuver after that point as well," he said. "Such vigorous navigating would have been impossible for unconscious men."
The bottom line is that this theory has fallen apart since it doesn't hold up when other facts about the plane are taken into consideration.
