As the search continues for Flight MH370, the CEO of Malaysia Airlines has admitted that the missing airliner was carrying highly flammable lithium batteries that could have caused a deadly mid-air fire.
Malaysia Airlines CEO Ahmad Jauhari confirmed on March 21 that the missing jet had been carrying highly flammable lithium-ion batteries — despite denying that the plane had any dangerous cargo on board just four days earlier. His shocking revelation has re-sparked speculation that an in-air fire may have caused Malaysia Airlines Flight 370’s mysterious disappearance on March 8.
A chilling new ‘zombie plane’ theory claims that deadly fumes or an accidental loss of cabin pressure could have knocked out everyone on board Malaysia Airlines Flight 370, leaving the plane to fly on autopilot for several hours until it crashed.
A CNN correspondent broke down the zombie plane theory on air on March 20, telling viewers that it wouldn’t be the first time something like this has happened. In 1999, a chartered Lear Jet crashed into a South Dakota field after flying on autopilot for nearly four hours. “Could Malaysia Flight 370 have also turned into a so-called ‘zombie plane?’” the correspondent pondered. Let’s take a closer look.
