After the plane disappeared from radars and slammed into the water off the coast of Australia, rumors began to swarm as to what exactly happened. New details regarding what exactly happened in the cockpit surfaced this morning. When the plane crashed, it was only 12,000 feet above the ground as a result of a sharp turn.
According to authorities, the sharp turn was intentional. They are assuming that there was foul play in the cockpit. Although they really have no evidence, they aren't ruling any possibilities out.
This is relative to our history classes. We are learning about the 1920's and about the invention of the first airplane.
Honestly, you have to stoop pretty low to want to wreck a plane on purpose. The US has gotten involved with the investigation and leave out no possibilities of foul play. Our government and investigators can find the world's most violent criminal, yet they can't figure out why a plane crashed or how it disappeared?
