 Malaysia Airlines plane crash will inevitably reopen speculation about what happened to the plane that disappeared earlier this year.

Flight MH370 was travelling from Kuala Lumpar to Beijing on March 8 when it lost contact with air traffic control and hasn`t been seen since.

Like today`s incident, it involved a Boeing 777, with a similar number of passengers on board.

There were 239 passengers and crew on the MH370 in March compared to an estimated 295 on today`s flight from Amsterdam to Kuala Lumpur
The search for MH370 is ongoing in the southern Indian Ocean, but it is now purely an underwater effort as any chance of debris on the surface of the water has all but disappeared.

Much like today`s incident there is speculation MH370 was shot down.

The recently published ‘Flight MH370: The Mystery ’ makes the allegation that the airline was shot down by US-Thai strike fighters as part of a training drill that went horribly wrong.

But just 71 days after the Boeing 777 vanished relatives said the UK published work is ‘too soon’ and ‘too insensitive’.

The book claims the drill was to involve mock warfare on land, in water and in the air, and would include live-fire exercises.

It adds: “Say a participant accidentally shot down Flight MH370. Such things do happen. No one wants another Lockerbie, so those involved would have every reason to keep quiet about it.”

But he goes on to support one theory, based on the eye-witness testimony of New Zealand oil rig worker Mike McKay, that the plane was shot down shortly after it stopped communicating with air traffic controllers.

At the time there was a series of war games taking place in the South China Sea involving Thailand, the US and personnel from China, Japan, Indonesia and others

New Zealand oil rig worker Mike McKay also claims to have seen a burning plane going down in the Gulf of Thailand.
