Interesting the authorities were not willing to release the satellite data so the dude could help trace the flight path.

New York has obtained a confidential document from the Malaysian police investigation into the disappearance of Malaysia Airlines Flight 370 that shows that the plane’s captain, Zaharie Ahmad Shah, conducted a simulated flight deep into the remote southern Indian Ocean less than a month before the plane vanished under uncannily similar circumstances. The revelation, which Malaysia withheld from a lengthy public report on the investigation, is the strongest evidence yet that Zaharie made off with the plane in a premeditated act of mass murder-suicide.
ne of the world's leading air crash investigators says he believes flight MH370 was "deliberately" crashed into the sea by a rogue pilot in a possible murder-suicide bid. Larry Vance said erosion on the edges of recovered wing parts suggested the plane was lowered to its doom in a controlled fashion. The erosion was caused by a part of the plane's wing – called a flaperon – being exposed to the elements when it was extended.
The flaperon can only be extended by a pilot in full control of his plane, he said.
The discovery of the flaperon, which showed damage consistent with the force of water, should have prompted experts to conclude the crash was caused by a rogue pilot, Mr Vance said. “Everybody should then have concluded in my opinion that this was a human engineered event, there’s no other explanation,” Mr Vance said.
“It (the flaperon) was only slightly damaged and was just encrusted with barnacles. Its appearance indicates that it was not violently torn off from the aircraft’s main body ... it does seem that it got detached pretty nicely at its edges,” he said.
It’s an opinion which echoes that expressed by Australian aviation expert Neil Hansford on the day the flaperon was found: “What it does show is that the aircraft has gone into the water in a controlled-type crash and as the engines have hit the water, they’ve sheared off and this part is straight behind one of the engines,” he told AFP.
“If MH370 had crashed with a really hard impact, we would have seen small pieces of debris floating on the sea immediately after that,” Zaaim Redha said.
