A fresh analysis suggests Malaysia Airlines Flight 370 appeared to be out of control when it plunged into the ocean. The plane vanished on its way from Kuala Lumpur to Beijing in March 2014 with 239 people on board. 

The report from the Australian Transport Safety Bureau said analysis of wing-flap debris showed the aircraft was not configured for landing. It also said satellite data is consistent with the plane being in a "high and increasing rate of descent" after running out of fuel with no human intervention. A pilot would usually extend the flaps during a controlled ditching.
