Great read on tragically bizarre story. Malaysia Airlines Flight MH370: Where Is It?
"Assisting the effort was a collection of volunteer engineers and scientists who found one another on the internet, called themselves the Independent Group, and collaborated so effectively that... the Australians ended up formally thanking them."
This is pretty horrible but seems to give a pretty plausible explanation of the mystery of flight MH370.
Still one of the biggest aviation mysteries/tragedies of all time—the disappearance of MH370. The Atlantic concludes it was most likely a mass-murder / suicide by a depressed, lonely pilot.
queued in my to-reads. this is going to be epic from langewiesche.
What a tragic tale
Read this last night and can't stop thinking about it
A tremendous piece of journalism. Just tremendous.
“It’s as if [Zaharie] was simulating a simulation.” This is a pretty grim escape from reality case with a simulation of a simulation angle.
New article on #MH370 plausibly suggests (but can't prove) a case of pilot suicide
"Were the Malaysians covering up? Yes. They were covering up for the unknown." A grimly fascinating read.

Malaysia Airlines Flight MH370: Where Is It? - The Atlantic
Interesting read, not because it gives any sort of definitive explanation for what happened (it doesn't), but for the exploration of all that is involved in knowing something that can seem so simple.
"There was the gentle whoosh of the air rushing by. The cockpit is the deepest, most protective, most private sort of home. Around 7 a.m., the sun rose over the eastern horizon, to the airplane’s left. A few minutes later it lit the ocean far below."
“Malaysia Airlines Flight MH370: Where Is It? - The Atlantic” The ineptitude & corruption of the Malaysian govt & avaiation entities is astonishing. If you value your life, don’t fly this carrier 😬

What Really Happened to Malaysia’s Missing Airplane
Artful piece. "He printed up cards identifying himself: adventurer. explorer. truth seeker. He wore a fedora, like Indiana Jones. When news arrived of MH370’s disappearance, he was predisposed to pay attention."
