It is possible that the missing Malaysia Airlines flight 370 will never be found, according to Bruce Robertson. The former airline pilot and engineer, who has been an avid investigator of the mystery surrounding MH370, said the plane’s debris will never be found because of the sea’s counter-clockwise current.


If the search operatives are not able to find debris on Madagascar or African beach, “the debris will forever circle counter-clockwise in the Southern Indian Ocean current,” Robertson wrote on his website that is dedicated to his search for the missing MH370. He said that there are very little and hard evidence that could explain the disappearance of the Malaysia Airlines flight. The only credible evidences are the ones from the satellite ping data and nothing more, he wrote. But even data coming from pings would not be able to lead searchers to the plane if it continues to be washed up by counter-clockwise current.

Robertson believes that MH370 encountered fire while flying. “An oxygen-fed flash fire erupts in the electronics bay, destroying some of the equipment crucial for a successful flight. The pilots turn the plane back to the west and begin a descent with the intent of landing. The pilots succumb to hypoxia and the plane’s automation takes over the next several hours,” Robertson explained.

“As the plane is blind to the world (and the world is blind to the plane), the plane flies in a very large radius left turn, the exponential spiral path first proposed in March 2014. The plane crashes into the Southern Indian Ocean west of the Zenith Plateau, west of Exmouth Australia. This is at roughly 21 degrees south, 103 degrees east,” he said.

Robertson’ theory is actually in sync with the Australian Transport Safety Bureau or ATSB which is leading the search operations for Mh370 in the southern Indian Ocean. MH370 disappeared on March 8, 2014 and on March 31, the Malaysian Government accepted the Australian government’s offer to lead the search.

The ATSB is working under the rationale that MH370 continued to fly for over six hours after contact was lost. Based on all available data from satellites, the ATSB ruled that MH370 entered the sea close to a long but narrow arc of the southern Indian Ocean. Following pings, the initially declared search area of 60,000 square kilometers has been expanded to up to 120, square kilometers.

The ATSB has no mention of the counter-clockwise current of the Indian Ocean that Robertson has floated. However when juxtaposed to the fact that the search area was expanded, could it be that the MH370 debris is indeed moving, being washed-up in a counter-clockwise movement?

    Another potential cause that has a lot of traction is that there was an explosive decompression. This could have been caused by unseen damage to the area where the wing meets the fuselage from a ting tip collision a few data prior (where the wing was inspected after repair, but the structural issues were to be checked on the next maintenance cycle) or a blowout of a large opening such as a cockpit escape hatch.

    Explosive decompression is a whole lot worse than people seem to think. Survivors describe it as like being hit in the chest with a sledgehammer. If you try to hold your breath, your lungs rupture, You have about ten seconds of consciousness, with around half that being functional. Vision goes next (unless already compromised by a condensation fog or debris flying around the cockpit.)

    All pilots are trained the same way — Aviate, Navigate, Communicate — but this does not take into account the ability to split duties between the pilot and co-pilot. The pilot would have had to a) make sure the aircraft is still flying (by checking instruments) and begin a turn to a major airfield (RAF Butterworth would have been a good choice.) That is accomplished by dialing in a new heading and then dialing in an appropriate descent rate. Over mountainous terrain, the pilot would have needed to check to make sure he was clearing the highest terrain before doing this. It would also be necessary for the pilot and co-pilot to have donned compressed oxygen masks and started pant-breathing. It would be likely that he was only able to change the heading before losing consciousness.

    The co-pilot would have been trying to assist the troubleshooting of the problem. A condensation fog or other clear indications of explosive decompression so that might have been done quickly. Then the co-pilot would have been trying to reset the transponder to squawk “7700” or a similar emergency code. To do so, he would have switched the transponder to “Standby”, dialed in the new code, then returned the transponder to “Xmit”. He would then have tried to use the radio to contact ATC and declare an emergency and also donned an oxygen mask. It would appear that the co-pilot only had time to start the transponder procedure before losing consciousness.

    If you want to see an example of this happening, look up the Payne Stewart jet crash. In that case there was an explosive decompression while climbing out of Orlando on the way to Dallas, the crew died almost instantly and the aircraft continued to climb past its service ceiling and flew on until fuel exhaustion over South Dakota. The NTSB was unable to determine what component failed, but the jet had been having trouble with slowly losing cabin pressure.
