Pilot Chief Suspect in Malaysia Flight Disappearance

It seems as though the pilot had a flight simulator that he practiced landing on a runway in the Indian Ocean, which he later deleted form the HDD, but police were able to recover the data:

Still quite convenient those Freescale workers where on board when he decided to hijack the plane.

This might be a silly question - but there isn't actually a landing strip in the Indian Ocean, is there?

No new news here.

The fact that Shah owned a flight simulator and practiced landings on short strips is not an indicator of much.

Thousands of other pilots and aviation enthusiasts own flight simulators and practice short field landings and take offs.

Deleting the flight simulator programs doesn't prove anything either. He was just making room to load more information about other airports and landing fields.

Shah enjoyed flying and the challenge it presented. Any responsible pilot would practice short field and emergency landings, either on their own FS or their employer's.

The one little clue I take away from the flight simulator is that Shah enjoyed a challenge. Such a characteristic would make it improbable that he would end his life in such a mundane way. An 'Ace' pilot would be more likely to go out in a blaze of glory than drown himself in the middle of nowhere.

I could see Shah attempting a dangerous landing on a remote highway in Al Qaeda held territory before he would end his life simply by expending his fuel.

Even if there was, what would it get him? There is no escape from a desert island.

I don't believe for one second Shah coordinated any operation with the US Airforce on Diego Garcia.

If you look at the passenger list of ANY flight you would be amazed to find the diverse occupations represented.

If the Pilot is the hijacker then the Freescale workers are irrelevant.

If the Freescale workers were the target, then it is more likely the plane was hijacked by a person/persons from the passenger list.

The guy was proud of his flight simulator, he even posted about it on face book!
HE EVEN MADE YOUTUBE VIDS ABOUT IT!!!

No story here, just more bs.

His simulator had 5 runways on it and there were over 600 in rage of the flight....
5 Runways in the IO

Yeah, so, what's your point?

Wouldn't you want your pilot to be trained to land at emergency alternative landing fields?

In addition to the "600" official airports in range there are THOUSANDS of other places a plane could be put down in an emergency.

Your right......except that coupled with his anti-government leanings and relation to Anwar Ibrahim paint a different picture....

So, if the pilot is the suspect because of him planning to land the plane elsewhere.....then where is the plane?

Sounds to me like they are going through the motions just to kill time until the story gets stale.

I'm not disagreeing with you, just pointing out that flight simulators are EXTREMELY common and researching and practicing emergency landings is what pilots do.

The pilot is the MAIN suspect for a lot of reasons. Planning short field landings is NOT one of them.

"Where is the Plane"?

Somewhere between Malaysia and Kazakhstan.

Tired of reading all the BS, because 99% of what the media write about this and what people assume simply *IS* BS.

So yes, communications systems were disabled. However, that someone (pilots) INTENTIONALLY disabled them is nothing but speculation because a fire can as well disable them. Systems disabled does NOT automatically mean a person manually disabled them.

Why not? That would be perfect for the next 911 level attack. A missing 777 suddenly crashes into... the rebuilt World Trade Center!

Somewhere else, but for sure not there or here.

You seem to be missing the point.

In the 14 minutes between the two transponders 'ceasing to operate' there would have been plenty of opportunity for the pilots to hit the MAYDAY button or contact ATC by radio.

I don't understand what you're referring to?

Why not what?

A quote would help.

There is a more detailed article in the Telegraph.

MH370 captain plotted route to southern Indian Ocean on home simulator
Detectives investigating the disappearance of the Malaysian Airlines flight which disappeared in March have discovered new evidence which has increased suspicion of its pilot

The pilot of the missing Malaysian Airlines plane which disappeared in March with 239 people on board had plotted a flight path to a remote island far into the southern Indian Ocean where the search is now focused, investigators have discovered.

The route, which was deleted before MH370 disappeared on March 8, was made on a home flight simulator machine used for practice by its captain, Zaharie Shah. Its discovery has intensified suspicion that he deliberately hijacked his own plane and diverted it from its approved flight path to Beijing.

A little belated huh? If this were truly evidence it would have been displayed to the media a long time ago.
