A new "perfect nosedive" theory into the disappearance of MH370 suggests the Malaysian Airlines jet could have crashed into the ocean at a 90-degree angle, keeping the plane intact and leaving little debris to find.

The theory of Texas A&M University at Qatar researcher Goong Chen was first published in the American Mathematical Society's April 2015 issue of Notices and was included among computer simulations of the flight under different crash theories.

 


Chen, an applied mathematician, wrote in the study that a plane entering the water in a perfect nosedive would explain lack of a debris field and spilled oil because the jet would have remained mostly intact.

Chen's research team simulated five "water entry" scenarios, including the guiding water entry by retired US Airways pilot Chesley B. "Sully" Sullenberger on New York City's Hudson River that kept that flight intact and saved all on board in 2009. Chen said a 90-degree nose dive scenario seemed the mostly likely explanation why searchers have not been able to find the plane.

"The true final moments of MH370 are likely to remain a mystery until someday when its black box is finally recovered and decoded," said Chen. "But forensics strongly supports that MH370 plunged into the ocean in a nosedive."

Malaysia Airlines Flight 370 disappeared without a trace on March 8, 2014. Subsea World News.com reported that searchers have covered more than 48,000 square kilometers of the Indian Ocean sea floor since the crash.

"The search area has been expanded beyond the original 60,000-square-kilometer search area to cover up to 120,000 square kilometers and has been modified to enable continuous search operations during winter," said the site.

Australian officials said last week they do not plan on enlarging the search area at this time, according to CNN.

"In the absence of credible new information that leads to the identification of a specific location of the aircraft, governments have agreed that there will be no further expansion of the search area," said the country's agency coordinating the search.
