NEW YORK, NY — On March 23, Avascent’s Steve Ganyard discussed the Inmarsat satellite data leading international search teams to conclude that Malaysia Airlines Flight 370 crashed into the south Indian Ocean. Joint analysis performed by Inmarsat and Boeing indicate that the last satellite ping occurred around 7.5 hours into the flight, at which point there would have been fuel to support about 30 minutes of travel. As the plane was roughly 1,000 miles from land, there was no place for it to go–but in the water.
There are still many questions concerning what originally prompted the crash. Theories include a fire in the cockpit, pilot error, or possible criminal activity.
