Kuala Lumpur, March 11: As mystery deepens over the sudden disappearance of the Malaysian Airline, investigators and experts are leaving no stones unturned to decipher the last few minutes of the ill-fated plane.
US and European government sources still stick to the hijack theory as their are electronic indications of the same.
Moreover, three days into the combined search action, neither air or sea search have divulged any traces of the plane. However special investigative branches of Malaysia, United States and Europe haven't completely ruled out the possibility of militant strike.
Guessing mechanical or pilot problems, an European agency says,"There is no evidence to suggest an act of terror. no explanation what's happened to it or where it is."
While dozens of ships and aircraft from different parts of the world are scouring the sea around Malaysia and south of Vietnam for the remains of the aircraft, they are also speculating over possible safety lapses that could have caused its end at an altitude of 35,000 feet.
Meanwhile, Interpol is still not ruling out hijacking possibilities as two persons were confirmed to be travelling on stolen passport. Electronic evidences, further suggest that the aircraft may have turned back to Kuala Lumpur before disappearing.
Entangling the mystery further is the fact that the aircraft failed to make any contacts with a flight-data monitoring system after it vanished from the radar screens.
In fact, the aircraft was laced with a maintenance computer, which is capable of talking to the ground automatically through short messages known as ACARS. "There were no signals from ACARS from the time the aircraft disappeared," said a source.
Finally, the United States imagaries from its spy satellites for a midair explosion, but with no result. Considered to be one of the most detailed and precise machinaries, the spy satellite can be trusted for their specificity, hence ruling out militant strike yet again.
