What happened to flight MH370, which disappeared mid-flight in March 2014, it has become one of the world’s greatest aviation mysteries. The plane’s final resting place has never been discovered, despite an exhaustive multimillion-dollar investigation and the discovery of wreckage spread out on the coasts of different countries.
Another mystery about the flight has started to surface. One of the richest, most powerful people in the world may have profited greatly when the flight went missing, Jacob Rothschild.
Among the 239 passengers aboard the craft were 20 senior employees of U.S. based technology company Freescale Semiconductor.
Most of the missing individuals are engineers and designers, according to a press release from management. They were working on a project to make factories in Asia more efficient. The KL-03 microcontroller was recently developed by the corporation, for use in military radar systems. Freescale RF, a division of Freescale Semiconductor, develops radar, avionics and missile guidance systems for the military. There are 17 billion computer chips produced by the company in use around the world. Four days after the flight disappeared, a patent was issued for new semiconductor technology. That license was awarded to five parties — Freestyle Semiconductor, and four Chinese employees of the company. Investigators believe all four of these people were on-board the aircraft when it vanished. Mitch Haws, vice-president of investor relations for Freescale, said,
“These were people with a lot of experience and technical background and they were very important people. It’s definitely a loss for the company.”
Now that the passengers on MH370 have been declared dead, the entire patent can now be awarded to the company, currently owned by Jacob Rothschild. The multibillionaire is a member of the Rothschild family, who own and manage many of the world’s largest banks and other financial institutions. This new piece of evidence does provide a motive for the disappearance of the plane MH370 and has many independent news outlets questioning the Rothschild’s ties to the flight. While it does shed a bit of light on the disappearance in only clouds the waters further as Navies and satellites around the world still look for possible pieces of the plane.
