MH370: ‘Electrical fault brought down jet’ – 24 OTHER Boeing 777s had issues

Since March 2014 the world has questioned how the Boeing 777 MH370 carrying 239 people vanished en route from Beijing to Kuala Lumpur.
Alien abduction, North Korea and an insurance scam are just some of the bizarre theories behind the disappearance. 
But one popular theory is the “zombie plane” theory,” whereby the missing plane’s avionic systems are ravaged, rendering the flight crew helpless, and the aircraft continued flying on autopilot until it ran out of fuel.
That was backed by the Australian government, who in a report acknowledged the flight suffered a sudden electrical failure.
It’s one of the most popular planes in the world, but the disappearance of the Malaysia Airlines plane has raised questions about just how good the jumbo jet’s safety record really is.
Plane enthusiast Simon Gunson – who is pals with the sister of the pilot of the doomed MH370 –  claims 26 in-flight incidents on Boeing 777 planes in 2016 show the potential dangers.
He said: “Boeing777 has an illustrious history of decompression at altitude without cockpit alarms alerting pilots.
“Add to the mix that MH370s failure to respond to messages from crews, it indicates electrical failure.
"And it could happen again.”
