New York Magazine obtained confidential documents from the Malaysian police investigation regarding captain Zaharie Ahmad Shah's home computer flight simulator. Shah's hard drives had apparently recorded a simulated flight plan that took his virtual aircraft deep into a remote area of the southern Indian Ocean, following a route that was uncannily similar to the path that MH370 is theorized to have taken.
The $130 million, two-year search for the aircraft has covered 42,000 square miles of the Indian ocean, and has 4,000 square miles of seafloor left to examine. Officials from Malaysia, China, and Australia have announced that official search efforts will conclude after the remaining planned search area has been covered, although Malaysian Transport minister Liow Tiong Lai asserts that, "I must emphasise that this does not mean we are giving up on the search for MH370.”

they may have had this info for awhile, but only recently decided to share it (perhaps NY Mag contacted them and offered to pay for some information?)
It is curious that apparently only NY Mag has this info though..
