New conspiracy theories have raised provocative explanations as to what might have happened to the Malaysian flight that went missing 4 months ago. Malaysia Airlines suffered a second disaster recently when another of its planes was reportedly shot down July 17 in a rebel held region of eastern Ukraine. The plane was headed to Kuala Lumpur from Amsterdam.

The wreckage of the plane, MH17, has been found near the town of Shakhtyorsk, the Donetsk region, with all 298 people aboard dead. This plane was brought down by an air missile at an altitude of about 32,000 feet.

Malaysian airline are devastated by this double tragedy. But the latest development has sparked rumors of what might have happened to the first plane and that they may be connected.

Russia has been blamed by many for their part in arming rebels in Ukraine. However, some Russians have instead claimed outlandishly that the dead from MH17 were in fact already dead, and were the passengers from the first flight 4 months ago. Those rumors are of course entirely unfounded, and have shocked many.

The second incident has also triggered other claims that Flight MH 370 might have met the same fate. A recent publication, 'Flight MH370: The Mystery', alleges that the airliner was shot down by a United States and Thai strike fighters during a training drill. The allegations have received strong criticism from the family members of those who were on-board the flight, who say such claims are disrespectful and tasteless.

The search for the missing Malaysia Airlines Flight MH 370 is now being carried out in about 60,000 square kilometers of top priority area in the southern Indian Ocean. The presence of any debris can only be detected if they are found underwater, as all the surface debris would now have been washed away. Australian experts investigating the events connected with the disappearance now feel that the passengers on board the missing flight might have suffocated as the plane crashed while on the auto pilot mode.

Claims that the flight had maintained a steady path forward, but with an unresponsive crew, has given rise to the alarming comments from the experts, however the search resumes in August with hope that answers will finally be found and the truth revealed.
