Cape Town - As the search for solid evidence of Malaysia Airlines Flight MH370's fatal crash landing into the Southern Indian Ocean continues, this youtube user Montagraph's attempt to solve the mysterious flight will give you goosebumps.

To date only official statements of satellite images, spotting possible debris from Flight MH370, have been confirmed as the remotest part of the Indian Ocean is being scoured for hard proof.

Bad weather only serves to slow the process, but to put things into perspective somewhat, the current search area is said to be four times the size of the Western Cape.

Before officials confirmed the flight had been hijacked and had crashed into the Indian Ocean leaving no survivors, Maldives residents said they spotted a low flying jumbo on the morning of 8 March when Flight MH370 disappeared - which they believe was the mystery Malaysia Airlines plane.

The video below details the math of both miles and time frames, with a 30 minute difference, from the time the plane was spotted heading towards the southern tip of the Maldives.

Below Montagraph says his theory is "based on fact, not conjecture" that the plane landed at United States Military Airbase Diego Garcia in the Maldives. 

After you've listened to what he has to say, nagging questions remain  - If the plane, departing Kuala Lumpur for Beijing, while flying over the South China Sea was hijacked - why was it taken so dramatically off course?

A course which happens to be close to the Diego Garcia military base, one of five runways found on Captain Zaharie Ahmad Shah's home-built simulator, according to an unnamed source in an IBTimes report.

And so a number of factors fuel the speculation and conspiracy theories as the search for the Flight MH370 wreckage continues...

1. Close proximity to island military base

Fuelled by the paths found on the Captain's home-built flight simulator, Shah is believed to have been the one with the greatest opportunity to redirect the flight. The reports that since the 9/11 attacks on the US, Diego Garcia has been cited one of the CIA’s "black sites for holding those captured in the global war against Al-Qaeda and its sympathizers".

2. Technological warfare

A total of 20 employees of Freescale were on board the missing Malaysia Airlines plane MH370, causing theorists to question corporate sabotage simply because of the sheer number of people affiliated with one organization - not to mention the organization’s status as a creator of cutting-edge technology.
Before it was spun off from Motorola in 2004, Freescale was credited with creating components for ordinary radios - all the way through to communications and transponder links between Earth and Apollo 11, the first craft to land a human being on the moon. 

3. Could there have been some precious cargo

Reports that Malaysia Airlines has not released a full and detailed manifest of the cargo adds to the specualtion. It has since been confirmed that a consignment of lithium-ion batteries, which can be highly flammable was part of the plane's cargo. A fire caused by Lithium-ion batteries resulted in Boeing's 787s fleet being grounded as safety authorities made a recall for the batteries to be checked.

Add to this, MAS chief executive officer Ahmad Jauhari Yahy's initial denial that the aircraft was carrying any hazardous goods. Instead Yahy highlighted the "three to four tonnes of mangosteen" on the plane, causing suspicion to continue - until the full cargo details are disclosed.

But all of this doesn't help the families and friends of those who were on board Flight MH370. They have criticised the Malaysian authorities for their handling of the situation and the delayed communication of the facts and in knowing what happened to their loved ones, pretty much like these two MSNBC hosts below.

Malaysian Airlines has since offered all passengers' next of kin compensation in the region of R50 000 rand.
