Missing MH370: Fariq Planned to Marry AirAsia Pilot
Malaysia Star ^ | 3/17

Posted on 03/17/2014 2:12:33 PM PDT by nickcarraway

Fariq Abdul Hamid (pic), the first officer of the missing MH370, was planning to marry a fellow pilot from another airline.

A report in the Sabah-based Daily Express said that Capt Nadira Ramli, 26, who is attached with AirAsia, is a daughter of a senior Malaysia Airlines pilot.

Mystery of MH370

She is now with Fariq’s distraught mother at an undisclosed hotel in Kuala Lumpur.

The Daily Express and several news portals claimed that Nadira had been given a month’s leave to enable her to weather her sadness over her 27-year-old boyfriend’s disappearance with 11 other crew members and 227 passengers on board the missing MAS aircraft.

Both had studied at the Langkawi pilot school and had known each other for nine years.

The paper added that Nadira was the youngest child of Capt Ramli Ibrahim and Nancy Jipanis of Penampang in Sabah.

The daily quoted a relative in Kota Kinabalu as saying Nadira was calm, acting as the pillar of strength to Fariq’s mother.

Nancy and her husband were reportedly upset with the press and social media for churning “all sorts of stories” about the missing jet.

The daily said Fariq, the youngest son of Selangor public works department deputy director Abdul Hamid Mad Daud, had intended to marry Nadira soon.

Local press here attempted to interview Fariq’s uncle, Aziz Daud, 47, at his home in Bunut Susu, Pasir Mas, yesterday but was politely refused.

He had been advised by MAS and the relevant government ministries to not speak to the press, Aziz said.

However, Fariq’s cousin, who declined to be named, said the pilot never went to school in Kelantan as he was brought up in Kuala Lumpur.

This don’t sound like a guy on a one way trip. But with Muslims you never know.
Best bet is those 4 people with fake passports.

Great movie scenario would be if that plane flew into the mosque in Jerusalem. When that mosque is gone, well it would mean Temple would be rebuilt there - then the fun begins.

I’m still waiting to learn whether anybody knows where the 370 pilot’s family is?

We know they left their home the day before, but I’ve never heard of anybody locating them......

The article states:

Depends on how long the engagement was. After nine years, he can't be accused of being in too much of a hurry to get married.

I think it was the pilot. He killed this guy and then climbed up to kill the passengers. Then he flew the plane who knows where.

“She is now with Fariq’s distraught mother at an undisclosed hotel in Kuala Lumpur”

I still have not heard one thing about the Captains wife who left the house the day before the incident. You would think she would all over Malaysian Airlines wanting to know about her husband.

Hmmmmm...taqqiya.

The Malaysians —particularly the airline— don’t want the blame, so they cook this up:

“His life was already so rich, WHY would he go and kill himself or become a terrorist...?!”

I think the non-US world is AT LEAST as dishonest as BHO, and when you’re talking about a real muzzie country, well, then it goes double.

She probably found him in bed with his best male friend. The one that’s been on television!

EXACTLY..!

The VERY first thing I would have checked would have been the FAMILY STABILITY of both pilots. And if I were a journalist I'd be screaming that question FIRST THING, right off the bat.

It's eery how lightly they're all treating this.

It's like casually dropping that they were both banrkrupt homo CRACK ADDICTS, and then moving on permanently to other super technical and political matters.

Twilight Zone material.

I think it was the co-pilot who was described as a “devout Muslim” who never missed Friday prayers...but was also the one who invited the girls into the cockpit, just like the 9/11 “devout Muslims” who were out getting lapdances the night before.

Apparently the pilots never knew who they would be assigned to fly with. I think it’s much more likely that the younger man, the copilot, overpowered the older one, the pilot (probably with the aid of some associates from outside of the cockpit) and then went on to do whatever he did.

That said, I think there must have been somebody on that flight who knew a lot more than he did and probably had military experience from a country with a much more functional military than Malaysia. Iran? I’m not sure about that. But what about a Saudi pilot, many of whom are trained in the US, or one of the people from Afghanistan or Pakistan that we have trained?

This was a super-professional job, and not just anybody could have carried it off. The pilot was not only a pilot but an aviation buff and loved his plane and I doubt that he would ever have taken it out. The co-pilot may not have had the skills, but he certainly could have enabled somebody else with those skills.

BTW, the co-pilot has an Arabic name but is very Chinese (not Malaysian) looking, and one of the first suspicions was the Uighers or at any rate, the local Uigher AQ branch. In that case, it might mean they’re thinking about attacking Russia or China with their plane.

Question: When the pilot or co-pilot need to go to the bathroom, do they exit the flight cabin?

If the answer is yes, that's the time to lock the door and climb.

Yes, they exit, and yes, they can be locked out.

I think the pilot was the atheist, although he may have gone to the mosque when he should have simply because it would have been dangerous not to do so. His political party was a secularist party. I can’t see how it would benefit him or his party to try to blow up something with a hijacked airliner; in addition, the party’s concerns dealt only with his country, Malaysia, and certainly there would have been no point in creating an international incident (to say the least) about it.

The co-pilot was a “devout Muslim” who never missed Friday prayers.

They would not need to go to bathroom one hour after the flight takes off. Certainly the plan could not be dependent on waiting for someone to take a leak. Not enough fuel for that nonsense.

The reverse happened when a Jetblue pilot went nuts and got locked out of the cockpit. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ibeolb5o5x0

I have been praying for the Temple to be rebuilt at the Temple Mount. This has been a yearning of my brethren for thousands of years. Oh my that HORIBLE mosque might get leveled and not by my Jewish brothers.

Well seeings how well the several factions of Islam get along so well maybe this faction doesn’t like the structure on Temple Mount either and has plans for some sort of modification. Then when it’s gone, Israel can go ahead and clean up that mess and build something meaningful there. I would think.
