Social networking sites such as Twitter and Facebook users are active in sending condolences to the family members of the passengers, while others are puzzled with this information and are not buying into the words of the Malaysian officials.
Harsh Vardhan, Aviation Expert said, ''You have to get the actual wreckage and identify with the aircraft of MH370. But, till then it is a strong possibility as per the information provided by Malaysia.'' Harsh further adds, ''Even if it is the same wreckage, it cannot be said that it crashed in the same place, where they are claiming. It can move as well.'' With the jetliner having disappeared 16 days ago, the wreckage might have been brought to that particular place by ocean currents as well.
A number of countries were included in the search operation spread over thousands and thousands of square miles. As per the Military radar, the jetliner had changed its route from its planned route, before its mystical disappearance. Harsh is surprised that the flight was located at such an odd degree (referring to the Indian Ocean).
But the search is not going to be easy any further also. Even if it is in deep sea, there are chances that the oil might have moved somewhere as well, which might lead to more confusion. It also depends on the amount of fuel at the time of crash as well. And to make matters worse, it is also one of the most remote locations of the world, which is hostile and constantly changing.
Harsh said, ''We should wait for a definitive clue and see where the aircraft is and then continue the exercise to find the debris.''
