More than three and a half years after Malaysia Airlines flight MH370 vanished with 239 people on board, officials admitted on Tuesday they were no closer to understanding what happened to it.
In a 440-page final report, the Australian Transport Safety Bureau called the continuing mystery “almost inconceivable.”
“Our deepest sympathies remain with those who lost their lives on board MH370 and for those that have continued to suffer at their loss,” said Australian Transport Safety Bureau Chief Commissioner Greg Hood.
“This is one of the world’s greatest tragedies, and we so wish that we had been able to recover this aircraft and those that lost their lives on board.”
Only three fragments of the flight have been found washed up on western Indian Ocean shores and search efforts were abandoned in January.
