    An engineer claims he’s used a computer program to discover flight MH370 was put into a 20-minute holding pattern before vanishing. The doomed jet was en route from Kuala Lumpur to Beijing in 2014 when it disappeared with 239 passengers on board, sparking one of the greatest aviation mysteries ever.
