A book that goes on sale today in the UK suggests that the aircraft carrier Malaysia Airlines mysteriously disappeared on March 8 without a trace may have been accidentally shot down during military exercises of the U.S. and Thailand. "Flight MH370 - the Mystery", written by journalist and Anglo-American writer Nigel Cawthorne, states that the accident was covered up and even came to provide misleading information to divert the search appliance to the wrong areas, according to today indicate some British newspapers.

To the families of the 239 people from 14 different countries who traveled aboard the plane, a Boeing 777 that disappeared 72 days ago, the publication of this book comes "too soon" and "too insensitive", according to "Daily Mirror" . According to the author, the relatives of the passengers of MH370 never know "for sure" what had really happened to travelers.

Cawthorne supports that theory on the testimony of an employee of an oil platform in New Zealand, Mike McKay, who said he saw a plane falling coated in flames in the Gulf of Thailand. By the time they lost communication with the pilot in the South China Sea military exercises were performed according Cawthorne says in the book. The mother of one of the passengers, the Australian Rod Burrows, said "there is absolutely no response" to what happened and who is "devastating for families."

"There are so many theories that I believe only one, all were unconscious and were unaware of what was happening ... it helps me to keep me sane. All I want is someone finds a piece of the plane," said Irene Burrows statement that includes today the British newspaper "Daily Mirror". According Cawthorne, who lives in London, the countries involved in military exercises could cover up the evidence by sending people to search the plane disappeared to wrong places.

"After all, no remains were found in the Indian Ocean, which in itself is suspicious," he argues. The writer speculates further that could have thrown the black box apparatus to the Australian coast to confuse the search teams.
