As mystery continues to surround the strange disappearance of a Malaysia Airlines plane, there are theories coming out left and right. As of Sunday, March 9, 2014, the NY Daily News has released the latest theory that Flight MH370 may have actually just disintegrated at 35,000 feet, and that's the reason that absolutely nothing has yet been found in almost two days.
A source in the massive search for the plane, who is speaking on anonymity, believes that this theory may hold water.
"The fact that we are unable to find any debris so far appears to indicate that the aircraft is likely to have disintegrated at around 35,000 feet," said the source.
Search teams have still not been able to make any confirmed discovery of any type of wreckage of the Malaysia Airlines plane in the seas beneath the flight path. Some rumors are now circulating that the plane may have attempted to turn around and head back from Kuala Lumpur, but those are not confirmed.
There were suspicious items found in the water on Sunday, but they have proven to not be from the plane itself.
Since the plane had not reported any type of issues with the craft or flight, if it were to have disintegrated in mid-air, it is said that would take a massive unexpected failure in its mechanics or possibly a bomb. There still is no evidence of foul play, but it is under investigation.
Numerous countries have joined in on the search and are checking out an area of some 3,900 square miles off the southern tip of Vietnam in the waters of the South China Sea and the Gulf of Thailand.
