Skip to comments.MH370: Investigators focus probe on 'deliberate act' by pilots
Posted on 03/22/2014 3:29:32 PM PDT by RummyChick
Authorities investigating the disappearance of Flight MH370 have narrowed their probe to the aircraft's two pilots following an extensive analysis of data from the plane.
Senior sources involved in the investigation told The Telegraph that they remained certain the disappearance of the Boeing 777 was as a result of a "deliberate act" by a "person or persons on board".

Well, duh! I said that when I first heard their names.
One could always ask Holder’s stooge organization to investigate, thereby guaranteeing complete incompetence and idiocy.
Or we could have Rep. Issa dig into it, until a squirrel runs by his office window.
I’m betting on the co-pilot who had just finished flight school and had fewer than ten hours in the cockpit. Learned just enough to take the plane down
The fact that the pilot had a simulator setup when most pilots see flying as a job/chore. The fact that some pilots want to know what it feels like to fly at maximum altitude and this flight appeared to go to FL450. The fact that some pilots want to know if they can hand fly a plane that high, which is nearly impossible. This all suggests he had a curiosity to hand fly at maximum altitude. I think he tried it and failed. I think they’ll find this plane in the water within miles of its last known position.
I dont buy into that one. Too much ducking and weaving needed to get it into Pakistan.
Needed the Pilot. However he could have been forced by Co Pilot and/or someone else.
It has been said that Pilot did not request that Co Pilot..but I really think a lot of lying going on so who can really say.
Too bad no one is revealing who the missing container belonged to..it might give some ideas as to what happened.
If you REALLY believe that happened..then you have to figure out why the US wants it blamed on Pakistan..given that Obama is friendly toward that nation and Jarret is Iranian.
Too much info coming out that the plane is in Pakistan.
Well, I am sure they are still super pi$$ed at the Bin Ladin raid by the Honorable Seal Team 6.
You can not convince me they do not know where the plane went, with all the High tech stuff out there, they know when we fart, and who smells it. The Powers to be know where it went and for why, and if its still there.
Has the Captain’s family been interviewed yet?
They mysteriously left the house before his departure.
I think he took it to the Indian Ocean after climbing to 45,000 to incapacitate the passengers, then on a suicide mission to a remote place thereby protecting his family as much as possible.
Read the transcript yesterday of the 54 minute conversation the pilot had with the control tower..I dont know if the transcript is fully accurate since it was translated from English to Chinese and back to English..but did only the co-pilot speak during that time? If so, isnt that kind of weird, that the pilot Shah said nothing or is that normal for one person to do all the talking
There identified a raft with a sign..."Gilligan was here".
Co-pilot killed pilot then crashed plane. Clearly a case of WORKPLACE VIOLENCE.
A bunch of articles say that he had 2,763 flight hours and has been flying for Malaysia Airlines since 2007. But apparently he was "transitioning" to the type of plane that is missing.
He had something like 2700 hours, and had been with the airline since 2007....hardly the newbie.
“Well, duh! I said that when I first heard their names.”
Well,,,, yeah, But,,, there was a report that they did not ask to fly together. That it was a random assignment.
I believe that Boeing has something on that plane that lets them know what happened to it but dont want all the possible info revealed.
For example, they did reveal something that most pilots didnt know about the plane.
I am sure there are more goodies like that that need to be kept secret.
So lets say Obama knows it is in Pakistan. And has known since the beginning.
Perhaps info coming out is being leaked to force his hand because he has been sitting on the info.
“Too much info coming out that the plane is in Pakistan.
We should neuter the Pakis. They ain’t our friends! Destroy their nukes, and let India take them out.
Also on the plane were 20 senior staff from a US technology company who had just launched a new electronic warfare gadget for military radar systems in the days before the Boeing 777 went missing.
Freescale Semiconductor, which makes powerful microchips for industries including defence, released the powerful new products to the American market on March 3.
Five days later, Flight MH370 took off from Kuala Lumpur for Beijing with 239 people on board including 20 working for Freescale.
You heard it here first
I believe that our government has something in the sky that lets them know what happened to it but don't want all the information revealed.
Stand corrected. On shep day before yesterday it was repeated twice that the co pilot had less than ten hours and had just been trained. Since they’ve heard his voice and not the pilot I’m staying that the co pilot was behind it.
Only thing that would change my mind is to find out the pilot was on the crew who set some kind of world record flying from there to Seattle or other way
Then I’d say he and the general were/are both doing work for See eye ehyuh
And something threatening to the USA was in he hold
That’s my opinion ( for he next two minutes) which varies with each new discovery.
Think of all the movies this mystery could stimulate!
“Also on the plane were 20 senior staff from a US technology company “
Yeah. I’ve been mentioning that for a few days.
A civil aircraft reported sighting a number of small objects during the search for Malaysia Airlines flight MH370, the Australian Maritime Safety Authority said at midnight on Sunday,
You know they’ve figured out what he was doing with that simlulator by now. I’ve heard nothing to indicate the guy was smart enough to truly obliterate the deletes simluator files, if he was why wouldn’t he have wiped the entire drive?
It’s possible he just fooled around with the simluator at home and went nuts and flew the plane into the ocean, or to Pakistan, or whatever. But it seems unlikely, because who wouldn’t at least do a dry run if they had the means? The fact that they’re not saying anything about his simulator may mean there’s nothing to report, or that they now have a pretty good idea about what happened and aren’t telling anyone.
Could the plane have been Hasting-ed ?
Hacked into by...a guy who’s really good a killing people with other technology ?
Jask is too short for a 777 takeoff. Konarak works and is further from U.S. radar.
Israeli Intelligence says this missing plane has Iran’s fingerprints all over it!
The conspiracists right here on FR could write three dozen scripts, for sure! Too many read way too many Clancy-mix/with-Stephen King books....
Gotta admit, these threads are fun to see the goo that starts running through the brains around here.
Don’t make too much about 20 Freescale people being on the plane. Semiconductor companies ALL have fabs in Asia and they fly teams there so often it’s probably rare when there are not at least a couple on a flight. Besides, Freescale makes cheap popcorn stuff that you’d find in appliances, cars, and mobile devices, they’re far from a think tank or black outfit. And these were process engineers and technicians, who do things to optimize production yield and quality. Not trivial but truly not top secret stuff either. If anyone wanted to abduct them, all they’d have had to do is offer them a better job. Preferably one that doesn’t require them to fly to Asia as often.
Takeoff? It had to land first.
Be careful about making assumptions off that transcript.
I am seeing pilots claim that it may be bogus and seeing claims it could have been washed several times...especially through the hands of the Chinese. Chinese get it..translate..edit etc..and then it comes from there to the newspaper who posted it in English.
It’s missing certain things that should be there.
As for only one person speaking..apparently it is not unusual for the one not flying to be the one speaking. However, it has not been confirmed who was speaking..just a reporter making a claim.
That is not to say you aren’t right.
You could be.
It’s even possible the one doing the speaking was neither pilot and was the Hijacker since a lot of the transcript does not conform to actually ATC standards.
PS — I just recalled those reports of said young co-pilot having those “hot white wimmins” visit the cockpit two or three years ago to share a Marlboro (or whatever)....which should negate the speculation that he’s fresh outta flight skoo; he’s been flying for awhile, it would appear.
Keeping awake thinking of some of them. Lol
Landing on a beach at low tide then the tide washes away with some of he wreckage. And they’re stranded at Shangra La ( that’s the spa-resort that GAN international airpot services Until those who cooperate are given either a private island to survive on or placed under witness protection.
Hey —— anything goes in fiction!
Not if they use jatos rockets?
5,900 feet is fine for a landing, but at that point they can't use the plane, since it cannot take off for any purpose, including terrorism. Konarak has a 12,500 foot runway, 250km to the east, further from the U.S. military radar in the Gulf of Oman.
There is more than meets the eye with people on that plane.
Or maybe it is all just some big coincidence...............that went POOF in the night
Just this morning I emailed my buddy in Perth, who has a beautiful home right on the beach overlooking the Indian Ocean....and axed him to keep an eye peeled for any ‘stealth aircraft’..................hain’t heard back from him yet, so there may be one more chapter in the works.
I am waiting for someone to plant debris
In my book there are no coincidence in dead-possibly murdered scientists.
Btw did you read 480 on other thread? Chilling!
Obit of Shane Todd
“He was a verification engineer for Freescale Semiconductor, Inc”
Figured that’s why the general or who was feeding him information kept mentioning we’ll know something in 24-48 hours. Magician: Look over here while my other hand
Have you seen anything yet naming the Huawei employees on board the plane?
Would Jato launchers work for a plane that size, or are you kidding?
“Since theyve heard his voice and not the pilot Im staying that the co pilot was behind it.”
Probably SOP to make the n00b do everything so he can be observed and evaluated.
