This excellent video was recently posted regarding MH370's disappearance.
I am still absolutely fascinated by this case. It's incredibly tragic and interesting. I think it's very clear that the pilot intentionally committed this act. He flew the plane to altitude to make all of the passengers pass out just like Helios flight 522. Then he hid the plane in the South Indian Ocean. He did it to protest the Malaysian government for jailing Anwar Ibrahim for sodomy.
It was an incredibly vicious, malicious act - though honestly brilliant in its execution. The guy made a huge jet disappear off of the face of the earth along with 238 other people. It's chilling to imagine this pilot flying a plane alone for FIVE HOURS with 238 people passed out in the cabin due to depressurization. Then he intentionally set the plane down softly so that a giant debris field wouldn't be created so investigators couldn't find the plane. He just made the plane vanish in some of the deepest seas in the entire world. Fucking WILD.
Just incredibly chilling but objectively ingenious despite the tragic act of murder.
