MH370 news: Final report into Malaysia Airlines flight leaves families in TEARS | Daily Star

Earlier Monday, the wife of a man who died on board flight MH370 said she was angry the Malaysian government didn't offer to fly her from Australia for a briefing on the final report until the last minute. However, they were not ruling out any possibility since the in-air turn back was done manually and the systems in the plane were also manually turned off.

Arriving at the transport ministry to receive the report, Nurlaila Ngah, whose husband Wan Swaid Wan Ismail was an MH370 crew member, said she was hoping for a "solid answer" about what happened that could give relatives some closure.

The MH370 story is etched in aviation history as the most weird incident, how a Boeing 777 with 239 people onboard vanished under mysterious circumstances, unleashing never ending scenarios provided both by aviation experts and conspiracy theorists.

However, it also said the investigation was unable to identify any plausible aircraft or systems failure mode that would lead to the observed systems deactivation, diversion from the filed flight plan route and the subsequent flight path taken by the aircraft.

Kok said the final report was prepared in consultation with seven other countries, including Australia, the US, China, Indonesia, and the United Kingdom, which endorse its findings.

Other theories disproved by the report included speculation that the plane's cargo, which included 4,566kg of mangosteens and 221kg of lithium-ion batteries, had sparked to cause a fire. Grace Subathirai Nathan, whose mother was on the plane, said that "a$3 ll in all the report did not reveal anything new or earth-shattering".

Family members of those aboard the flight were briefed on the report earlier Monday.

The report, released more than four years after the aircraft vanished, reiterated the Malaysian Government's assertion that the plane was deliberately diverted and flown for more than seven hours after severing communications.

In 2009, he organized a merger with Chrysler in the USA and formed Fiat Chrysler Automobiles, becoming CEO of the new company. Appointed CEO of Fiat in 2004, Marchionne became known as a no-nonsense workaholic, pushing his subordinates hard.

The investigators did issue a criticism of air traffic controllers in Malaysia and Vietnam for not sounding the alarm immediately, meaning search and rescue operations were delayed.

'I have always said the most plausible scenario was murder-suicide and if this guy wanted to create the world's greatest mystery why wouldn't he have piloted the thing to the very end and gone further south?' Mr Abbott said.

Copies of the MH370 safety investigations report are seen on the floor during a media briefing in Putrajaya, outside Kuala Lumpur, on Monday.

Burrows, from Queensland, said she felt Malaysian authorities had "fumbled the whole investigation from the start" with delays and confusion.

Today's report comes two months after Malaysia called off a privately funded underwater search for the aircraft.

It was the second major search after Australia, China and Malaysia ended a fruitless $147.06m search across an area of 120,000 sq km past year.

Several theories have emerged about how the plane disappeared, with some suggesting the plane was hijacked and others believing someone on board may have deliberately turned off the plane's transponder before diverting it over the Indian Ocean.

Theories range from mechanical error or a remote-controlled crash, to more freakish explanations like alien abduction and a Russian plot. Alhough more than 20 items of debris suspected or confirmed to be from the aircraft have washed ashore on coastlines across the Indian Ocean since then, the body of Boeing 777 has never been found.
