This iReport is part of an assignment:
Malaysia Airlines Flight 370
Fire on board flight 370
altitude extinguish the fire? Unfortunately the lack of oxygen might also cause the jet engines to stall as well, which would cause the aircraft to descend rather quickly.
Obviously the aircraft survived the descent so the pilot would have successfully restarted the engines. But maybe due to the extreme forces of the descent it damaged the aircraft to the point where the aircraft was loosing altitude so he put the aircraft in an ascending mode to keep the aircraft flying until he could figure out
which way to fly to get to an airport where he could attempt a landing. At this point, maybe after making a decision as to where to go he made a turn with the aircraft that caused whatever damage occurred during the descent from 45,000 ft worse and the plane went down in the ocean or maybe the lithium batteries reignited and caused the aircraft to come down.
