MH370 Misteri Kedua Selepas 1937

Semua orang di seluruh dunia masih tertanya-tanya apa yang berlaku kepada Flight MH370. Sudah masuk hari ke 22 dan masih belum ada apa-apa bukti yang menunjukkan ia terhempas. Walaupun satelit dan pasukan mencari dari udara menjumpai serpihan-serpihan bertaburan di Selatan Lautan Hindi, namun belu ada satu lagi cebisan itu dapat diambil untuk diperiksa dan buatkan pengesahan.

Sekiranya MH370 tidak dijumpai maka ia akan menjadi kehilangan pesawat yang paling misteri di era moden ini. Apa tidaknya dengan usaha daripada 26 buah negara menggunakan peralatan dan teknologi tercanggih ketika ini, masih belum dapat mengesannya.

Pada tahun 1937 Amelia Mary Earhart, seorang penulis dan merupakan menjadi pioneer penerbangan Amerika, telah hilang pada 2 Julai 1937. Beliau merupakan juruterbang wanita pertama yang terbang secara solo melintasi Lautan Atlantik. Dalam percubaan pertama beliau untuk terbang mengelilingi dunia pada tahun 1937 menggunakan Lockheed Model 10 Electra yang ditaja oleh Purdue, telah hilang di tengah-tengah Lautan Pasifik berhampiran Howland Island. Kehilangan beliau masih menjadi misteri hingga hari ini.   Amelia_earhart

MH370 Pencarian Diteruskan

Biarpun telah dibuat pengesahan bahawa penerbangan MH370 berakhir dan dianggap hilang di Lautan Hindi Selatan tanpa bukti kukuh melalui penemuan sisa-sasa dari pesawat tersebut, pencarian masih diteruskan.

Hari ini 26 Mac 2014 diumumkan bahawa terdapat leads baru oleh satelit dan pihak Kerajaan Malaysia telah menghantar imej satelit yang besar kemungkinan dari pesawat yang hilang itu. Ia merupakan imej sebanyak 122 objek berpotensi dari pesawat yang malang itu.

Sementara itu di media sosial masih lagi diperkatakan oleh ramai pengalanisis bahawa MH370 ada hubungkait dengan pendaratan di Pangkalan Amerika Syarikat iaitu Deigo Garcia. Russia juga mendakwa bahawa MH370 dirampas oleh Tentera Laut Anerika.

Dalam pada itu sudah ada pihak yang memulakan proses udang-undang terhadap MAS dan Boeing sementara Barat melalui media yang mereka kawal mengambil kesempatan untuk melabelkan sekali lagi Islam sebagai pengganas apabila mula menuding jari kepada juruterbang dan pembantunya. Bagi Barat apa sahaja yang dilakukan oleh orang Islam semuanya berunsur ganas.

FBI mengeluarkan kenyataan bahawa tidak ada apa-apa yang meragukan dalam Flight simulator Capt. Zaharie yang boleh disabitkan dengan kehilangan MH370. Bermakna Capt. Zaharie adalah bersih jika hendak hendak dikaitkan dengan training beliau menggunakan Flight Simulator itu. Namun adakah Barat akan berpuas hati?

Satu posting dalam Facebook yang berupa satu soalan kepada Barat dan yang sering mengaitkan Islam dengan keganasan yang pastinya mereka tidak dapat menjawabnya
Is Islam Really Terrorist
