Floating Debris May Not Be From Missing Flight 370
The mystery of Flight 370 continues and now there's growing concern that the debris seen in this satellite photo may not be from the missing plane at all.
Instead of a section of the missing plane, could it be a floating container that fell off a cargo ship? It reminds people of this scene from the recent Robert Redford movie All Is Lost.
Geraldo Rivera had this to say on Fox and Friends, "I don't htink it's anything. I think, did you see the movie All Is Lost with Robert Redford? The little sailboat hits the floating container. That's the biggest danger out there."
As Australian planes continue to search the Southern Indian Ocean, a new poll by The Huffington Post says that 45 percent of Americans still believe the plane landed in a secret location, while only 29 percent think it crashed.
Robert Goyer is editor of Flying Magazine and a pilot. He told INSIDE EDITION, "I think that the theory that people are deciding upon has a lot to do with what their hopes are for the outcome. Airline pilots want it not to be the airline pilot who did this. And the general public wants everybody to be okay."
Theories about what happened to Flight 370 continue to fascinate the world. The pilot conspiracy theory is still given the most credibility, with speculation focusing on a suicide by the pilot, co-pilot, or both.
But another gaining a little traction is the fire theory after Malaysian authorities confirmed that the missing plane was carrying a cargo of lithium ion batteries, leading to speculation that they caught fire.
INSIDE EDITION caught up with Donald Trump, who finds the lithium battery fire theory credible. Trump said, "I'm not a big fan of the lithium ion batteries, and they were carrying them on the plane in storage, I just found out. I think those batteries should not be allowed on planes."
The zombie theory speculates that the pilot and co-pilot were dead from lack of oxygen, and the plane flew on for hours as a ghost ship.
Then there's the hijacking theory, which has actually happened before into the Indian Ocean. Remember the dramatic video of an Ethiopian jetliner crashing off a beach in the Indian Ocean? It took place in 1996 in the middle of a hijacking, and 50 people survived.
Pilot Goyer has doubts we'll ever know what really happened to Flight 370, saying, "There's a very high likelihoood that we will never find this airplane."
