A senior Boeing pilot says MH370 was used in a murder-suicide mission by Captain Zaharie Amad Shah, who ditched the aircraft in the Southern Indian Ocean “where it could never be found”.
Australia’s 60 Minutes produced a special investigation into the missing aircraft, assembling an expert panel to find out what happened to the missing 239 people on board.
“I think this was deliberate and it was done over an extended period of time,” said Mr Dolan, former head of the Australian Transport Safety Bureau. He went on to say the likelihood of finding the ill-fated airplane is very low and the wreckage is no longer needed to understand the aircraft’s final hours.
The flight path of the ill-fated flight was reconstructed from military radar and it reveals the MH370 pilot successfully avoided detection by either Malaysian or Thai military radar by flying along the border, crossing in and out of each country’s airspace.
“If you were commissioning me to do this operation and try and make a 777 disappear, I would do exactly the same thing,” said Boeing 777 pilot Simon Hardy.
