Malaysian Plane’s Lethal Cargo Onboard: Airline Finally Admits It

Malaysia Airlines CEO Ahmad Jauhari confirmed on March 21 that the missing jet had been carrying highly flammable lithium-ion batteries — despite denying that the plane had any dangerous cargo on board just four days earlier. His shocking revelation has re-sparked speculation that an in-air fire may have caused Malaysia Airlines Flight 370′s mysterious disappearance on March 8.

Malaysia Flight 370 Carrying Batteries: Airline Admits Plane’s Lethal Cargo

Ahmad’s admission supports the theory that the missing flight’s 239 passengers and crew members may have been knocked unconscious by the toxic fumes of an on-board fire.

It wouldn’t be the first time something like that has happened. Lithium-ion batteries, which are used in mobile phones and laptops, have caused multiple plane fires and have even brought down aircraft in the past, the UK’s Daily Mail reports.

Batteries of this kind carried in the cargo or baggage have caused more than 140 incidents between March 1991 and February 17, 2014, according to the U.S. Federal Aviation Administration. Two cargo planes have even been destroyed by fires started by lithium-ion batteries.

Malaysia Flight: Were Crew & Passengers Mysteriously Knocked Out?

Aviation experts are still trying to solve the mysterious disappearance of Malaysia Airlines Flight 370 after two objects believed to be the remains of the missing plane were spotted by satellite in the Indian Ocean off the coast of Perth, Australia on March 19. The airliners’s direct line from its last known location to the remote new search area suggests that the plane was not hijacked, and may have fallen victim to a mechanical fault or emergency.

More than a dozen ships and aircraft have been sent in to locate the objects, but the search teams have not yet found any further signs of the downed plane.
