What happens now that Malaysia has declared that flight MH370 was an accident?
On January 29 2015, Malaysia's Department of Civil Aviation made an announcement officially declaring that the missing Malaysian Airlines flight MH370 was an accident. Well, OK, this clears the way for some compensation to be paid to the relatives of crew and passengers, but on what basis has that declaration been made?
Answer: This has not been based on any technical facts but is purely a similar form of speculation which many others have been espousing, unless of course, the Malaysians know something that they have not released to the rest of the World.
Given the facts that we know, and the demonstrated incompetence of Malaysian authorities in the first hours and days after the disappearance of MH370, we have to wonder what will happen next. Is it now down to Australia to continue the search for MH370 or will Malaysia continue to provide assets and funding for an ongoing search??
Many of the relatives and friends of crew and passengers are not satisfied with this declaration and want proper answers.
Who is now in charge and maintaining the search for MH370?
