Malaysia Airlines MH370: New report says flight was deliberately manipulated

The plane's black boxes, which record flight data, have not been found.

But apart from listing procedural lapses, the bulk of their report recounted information already released since the jet vanished on a scheduled flight to Beijing from Kuala Lumpur about four years ago.

Chief investigator Kok Soo Chon said the cause of the disappearance can not be determined until the wreckage and the plane's black boxes are found.

In May, Malaysia called off a three-month search by U.S. firm Ocean Infinity, which spanned 112,000 sq km in the southern Indian Ocean and ended with no significant findings.

"We remain ever hopeful that we will be able to find the answers we seek when the credible evidence becomes available". Irene Burrows, 89, whose son Rodney and daughter-in-law Mary were on the flight, said the mystery would stay unsolved "until such time as they find the plane and I'm sure it won't be found in my lifetime". He said there was no evidence of abnormal behaviour or stress in the two pilots that could lead them to hijack the plane but all passengers were also cleared by police and had no pilot training.

The Australian Transport Safety Bureau, which spent three years coordinating the worldwide search for MH370, released its final 440-page report into the mystery in October concluding that what happened to the Boeing 777 would remain unknown unless the plane were found.

"The air traffic controllers did not initiate the various emergency phases required of them, thereby delaying the activation of the search and rescue operations", he said.

"The disappearance of MH370 and the search effort are unprecedented in commercial aviation history", the Malaysian report said Monday.

Ms Weeks, who moved from Perth to Queensland after the tragedy, said the search had to go on as the crash may have been due to a problem with the Boeing 777 model.

Investigators said the lack of debris from the doomed flight made it impossible to reach any conclusions about what happened to the Boeing 777 at the center of one of the world's greatest aviation mysteries.

Despite other attempts to locate debris using satellite imagery and the mapping of ocean drifts, the 1,046-day search was called off on January 17, 2017.

Newly elected Prime Minister Mahathir Mohamad has said Malaysia will consider resuming the search for MH370 only if new clues come to light.

Australian officials overseeing the search for the plane last month said data recovered from Capt. Zaharie Ahmad Shah’s simulator included a flight path to the southern Indian Ocean.

Next of kin of those onboard looked distraught after receiving the report, many sobbing and saying that it offered them "no closure", and some claimed that information in it was incorrect.

Nathan said that, for the families, this report did not mark the end of the search.

Some say this could be down to a deliberate hijacking in which someone damaged the oxygen supply or some kind of accident that harmed the plane's mechanics and affect the plane's oxygen levels.

It also disproved theories that had suggested the pilot and first officer brought the plane down in a suicide mission, and accusations of mechanical failure.
