This post will be a collection of annotated graphics that focus on efforts to locate and document MH370. No particular theme. I will add annotated images when I come across something I believe might be informative.
The MH370 chapter in world airline history is sordid by any metric. In fact it could be the posterchild for the old aphorism that “the road to hell is paved with good intentions”. It started with the ruthless abduction and murder of 238 people who had barely settled into their seats for a six-hour flight to Beijing, China from Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. Eleven of twelve flight crew members suffered the same fate as the passengers.
But the aftermath of the abduction may be regarded as even worse: the ongoing torture of those claiming to be family and friends of the victims. The latter happened when those responsible for tracking the plane failed to demonstrate that they had even a basic working knowledge of the geometry / telemetry their jobs required.
