A team of Aviation experts including a man who led the search for two years concluded that Captain of Malaysia Airlines flight MH370 “deliberately evaded radar” and crashed the plane, in an interview with Australian “60 minutes” program.
The mysterious disappearance of the Boeing 777 with 249 passengers flying from Kuala Lumpur to Beijing on 8 March 2014, has puzzled the world, and many theories have emerged since then.
Experts claim that MH370 flight Captain Zaharie, 53, accompanied on the flight deck by an inexperienced first officer, Fariq Abdul Hamid, planed and executed a murder-suicide mission.
Mr. Martin Dolan, who led the seabed search, said “This was planned, this was deliberate, and it was done over an extended period of time.” in a “60 Minutes” Australia televised program.
Six days after the aircraft disappeared, search on Captain’s computer and equipment taken away from his home, suggested that Captain Zaharie had used flight simulation software to practice flight diverting procedures.
A Canadian air-crash investigator, Larry Vance, said he believed that Captain Zaharie put on an oxygen mask before depressurising the plane to render the passengers and crew unconscious and “ditched it deliberately to keep it as intact as possible”, as evidence was that “the aircraft spiralled into the ocean and crashed”.
In the absence of firm proof, many theories and possible explanations have been proposed and will continue for years to come.
