Why Flight MH370 Has Not Vanished in the Southern Indian Ocean

This chapter delivers the final conclusions that were raised due to the critical question of why MH370 has not ended up in the Southern Indian Ocean. In this view, the application of the multiobjective genetic algorithm is implemented to explore the final destination of MH370. The results show that the MH370's last destination is not near the coastal water of Perth, Australia as obtained by using a multiobjective algorithm. In this understanding, the Pareto optimization has allowed the author to see the impact of the Southern Indian Ocean dynamics on the MH370 debris trajectory movements. Moreover, the Pareto front verified that the found fragments do not belong to MH370 fuselage. There is a 95% confidence level that the flight found in Cambodia is not MH370. Finally, MH370 has been hijacked and driven to Diego Garcia as it is a short route from the departure point at International Malaysia Airport, Kuala Lumpur (KLIA).

Significant questions are raised over six years from time to time: where is the MH370 and How did it end up? It is precisely six years to the day when MH370 vanished from the radars while flying from Kuala Lumpur to Beijing, China. Notwithstanding the long passageway of time, the world is immobile clueless on its final vanishing destination. All the advanced search technologies have miscarried to explore the resting place of MH370 fuselage or debris. In this understanding, an extensive multinational exploration initiated immediately after the MH370 went vanishing, and succeeding a particular examination expending state-of-the-art underwater equipment months later correspondingly miscarried to reveal sufficient confirmation to patch simultaneously the mystery puzzle.

Previous chapters have proved logically the recovery of some fragments, for instance, wings and fuselage in waters off eastern Africa are not MH370 remains. In this sense, more critical questions are raised: why the MH370 deviated off far from its original route.

These critical questions cannot be answered through conspiracy theories that flooded the internet six years ago. One of these conspiracy theories is the plane was taken over remotely in a bid to foil a hijacking. Besides, MH370 perhaps was landed gently in the water and sunk in mostly one piece, which is consistent with the debris found. However, as proved previously, the debris are not the MH370 fragments.

Another theory is that the search was in the wrong area and that investigators should be looking north of Malaysia – perhaps the plane crashed, or perhaps it landed and was hidden somewhere. However, this theory was rejected by Inmarsat. In July 2018, push back on theory was stated that the batteries and fruit in the plane’s cargo had somehow formed an explosive mixture that brought down the plane.

More bizarre speculations comprise a remote cyber-hijacking, the plane being shot down by perhaps the US military, the idea that Russian President Vladimir Putin knows the plane’s location, a mystery extra passenger taking control of the plane, a Bermuda Triangle-style area causing the plane’s disappearance, and North Korea taking the plane. These bizarre speculations were not logically address as Bermuda Triangle-Style historically has never been shown in the South China Sea. North Korea and Russia have huge collaborations with China and not go further to shoot-down a flight as the majority of passengers included were Chinese. Other farfetched theories are also blamed the CIA, Israel, and aliens – all outdated bogies for conspiracy theorists.

The surprising issues that the Malaysin professors never deliver any logical clues and theory to explain how did MH370 end up near Perth, Australia? In this view, Malaysian oceanographers cannot develop any ocean dynamic model to track the trajectory movement of debris either in the South China Sea or the Indian Ocean. As they rely on the consequences that delivered by Australian scientists.

Even though, an advanced mathematical method of Bayesian for the search of MH370 book was published by Springer, not come up to scratch to determine the precise last destination of MH370.

This chapter is mounded to accomplish the logical debriefing: did the MH370 vanish in the Southern Indian Ocean? The intelligible decision can be drawn back to physical evidence of Inmarsat satellite data and its ambiguities. Likewise, the debris detections in optical satellite data and the effect of Southern Indian Ocean dynamic components, i.e. Rossby wave, velocity potential, significant wave height pattern and surface current patterns can exploit to express the rational answer.
