Malaysia flight continues to raise questions

Malaysia Flight 370 continues to fill headlines, and now people are outraged because of the unanswered questions that still linger. It was reported on Monday, March 24, that families of the passengers were notified that there were no survivors. A red flag that popped up was the methods of communication between the flight and the families.

CNN reported that Malaysia Airlines called some families and text messaged others. Some people even heard the news at a press conference held by Prime Minister Najib Razak.

So far, there has not been any wreckage found of the plane. If the Malaysian government thinks they know where the plane "crashed" (the Indian Ocean), then wouldn't their first priority be to send a rescue crew there?

According to CNN, "Tuesday, Australian authorities coordinating the search for the plane in a remote area of the Indian Ocean suspended efforts because of stormy weather."

It is very tedious for these rescue teams to search the Indian Ocean to find the wreckage that is part of Flight 370.

The last time the plane relayed communication was on March 8. It was at that time everyone's mind would start to race about what really happened. There were a total of 239 passengers and crew members aboard the plane.

Many people are skeptical whether it is possible for the plane to have crashed into the Indian Ocean due to the direction it was going when communication signals were lost. Because Prime Minister Najib Razak released such minimal information, it is easy for people to suspect something else is going on.

The lives of the passengers' families will never be the same. Is it fair for the Malaysian government to hide information, IF they have additional findings?

Experts said that there might have been a fire on board, causing the plane to crash. This theory is still undetermined, since no wreckage has come up. Experts are also interested to see what secrets the wreckage might hold.

According to CNN's story, "Malaysia flight saga: 9 questions linger", the wreckage could prove different scenarios of what happened to the plane. This would give families and the world more answers about the flight.

New developments were made, Wednesday, March 26, and CNN reported that satellite images showed 122 objects floating in the southern Indian Ocean. This is a huge step forward into finding more about the plane. According to CNN, the latest images appear to be the most significant discovery yet in the hunt for the missing plane.

Some of the debris found were anywhere from three to 75 feet, CBS News reported. The search has now been handed back to Australian search teams since the wreckages was found about 1,500 miles off the coast of Perth, Australia.

After bad weather on Tuesday, 12 planes and five ships from the United States, China, Japan, South Korea, Australia and New Zealand continued the search to continue to search of evidence and possible clues.

On Thursday, March 27, CNN reported that a Thailand satellite captured images of 300 objects ranging from six to 50 feet in the southern Indian Ocean.

Rough weather has been delaying rescue workers to get out and look, but teams will be ready when they are given the go ahead.

Unfortunately, it is still uncertain as to whether these images are in fact objects from the missing plane. Searchers have to be sent out in the waters to ensure that the objects are missing pieces of the plane.

If the objects do happen to be parts of the plane they would shed more light on what actually happened to flight 370. CNN reported that the debris could help pinpoint where the plane actually went down. It would be then that a larger focus would be put under the water to find larger pieces of wreckage from the plane.

In lieu of the findings, families are still skeptical as to whether this theory of the plane crash is real.

According to CNN's story, "Best Flight 370 lead yet," many relatives of those missing believe that their loved ones might still be alive.

Even though these mysterious objects were spotted, it is hard for families to get their hopes up because it could turn out to be nothing. Additional wreckage could take even longer to find. It is a matter of how the rescue teams are working.

It is understandable that families and friends of those who were on the plane will be outraged until all of their questions are answered, but what if the Malaysian government is giving all of the information it has? We know, at least, the government is talking and not keeping completely quiet.

This is a devastating situation that could have happened to anyone. There have been some red flags with the plane since the beginning, but it is everyone's mission to help in anyway they can.

It is great that all of these countries are pulling together to send search teams to try and find the plane.

This all could be a conspiracy, but the world should hope that those families get answers to their questions.
