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

It was released.

I’m Just not buying this story yet. It doesn’t make sense. Now, granted....

-It’s very difficult to understand the mind of a suicidal person.

-it’s possible he tried to cover his tracks out of guilt or shame for what he was about to do.

-Just as much as it doesn’t make sense that this was a suicide mission, it makes just as little sense for this to be a deep conspiracy.

-Most of the conspiracy angles I’ve heard seem bogus, or an extreme stretch of the imagination.

With that said, I just don’t buy it at face value. As others have said, why go to all that work for a mass murder/suicide mission? Why hide the aircraft from radar? Why take 230 lives with you? Why be so meticulous in hiding the evidence? Why practice the route in a simulator? And why do all that when your life is seemingly just fine with a family and successful career?

So many theories. So much speculation.

Until we have a plane all of it is purely conjecture, which means every theory is as likely as the next. The theory I used to like was this one. But then a few parts were found and confirmed to be part of MH370.

Simple truth is...find the plane and get the answers.

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.

you say? You're telling me that a pilot during his many flight simulations, ran a simulation that was similar to an actual flight he was taking? You're telling me that out of the hundreds(thousands? Millions?) of simulations he's done during his career, at least ONE of them was a similar flight path???

Clearly he did it, Doesn't matter if we never found a plane or body, Case OVER!

What evidence is there that supports ANY of these conspiracy theories? You people really need to settle down and realize that you're too, speculating. Sometimes the simplist explanation is the actual reason, yet everyone on this thread thinks they know the answer. So why am I being ridiculed, agreeing that the pilot schemed an elaborate plot to kill himself and flew over his hometown before ditching the plane? The recovered wings were mostly intact, which indicates that the plane landed gently in the water. As far as I'm concerned, suicide by pilot is just as plausible as any other theory, backed by aviation experts. A deviant mind is just as mysterious as any of the conspiracy theories imo.

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.

They didn't recover the wings, they recovered portions of the wings and fuselage and all showed evidence of a high speed impact with the water, not a gentle landing. The flaperon is part of the wing, regardless of if is extended or not.

Yeah I'm not buying this either. It just doesn't add up at all...

Yes, you're right about a portion of the wing being recovered (flaperon). However, there are just as many articles that state that there was not a "high speed impact" into the ocean. Once again, the theory of pilot suicide, is just as plausible as any other theory.

“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. -story/8342d7542e5e63f61ebcd5932032f18a

The techs were from Freescale Semiconductor.

Merged with NXP Semiconductors the following year.

A plane full of executives from a company specializing in aircraft stealth-cloaking disappears.

"Aviation experts believe they may have solved the mystery", no, nobody has solved anything until we find the actual plane itself.

I think their theory of pilot suicide is too easy, and pointing the finger straight at the pilot is also too easy. What if it turns out, that if any evidence is found, such as a flight recorder with data still intact proves he was a hero trying to fly to safety before being unable to fly any longer?

After 4 years they should be using hard facts and not theories. What they are saying in my eyes, is that they have no more idea than you or me.

Has it been categorically confirmed that the wings are from MH370?

If so then the plane went down for SOME reason and maybe the pilot was trying to save the plane hence the type of crash because that is the MO of a hero pilot.

So if one accepts that possible scenario then what are the options:-

1. Attempted suicide but changed his mind at the last minute but could keep the plane in the air?
2. The plane had mechanical or electrical problems so he couldn't keep the plane in the air and tried to save the plane
3. It was remotely taken over to kill one or many targets or sink a secret cargo, but if that was the case those in control would not attempt a controlled landing, unless they wanted it to later look like an accident.
4. It was actually a planned ISIS sympathiser terror attack and they want it kept quiet, then again why a controlled landing if there was one, and that must be the case or there would have been much more debris discovered.
5. It was shot down or at and the Pilot tried to evade radar for some reason but was forced into a controlled type landing. Again not enough debris to be a crash dive

The fact that there are factors such as the nature of some of the passengers, link to high tech and the mystery around radar evasion, pilot actions prior to the flight, and no fus has been found or even a single passport or bag points to something potentially sinister. The emphasis on searching in the southern indian ocean near Auss always bugged me.

In my humble opinion there is nothing simple about what happened here, where it happened and where the plane was destined.

And if the wing debris found is really not part of MH370 then the planed never crashed but land somewhere!

My 2 pennies!

The lack of comments are enough... Stealth tech commandeered by China. The only enemy left in this world.

The only scenario that comes to mind is from the movie "Millennium"....

posted on May, 14 2018 @ 12:28 PM
perhaps the guy wanted to kill self and plane/passengers
and avoided the radar to hide evidence
insurance money? presumably none if suicide but I think they'd pay for lost/presumed dead.

sadly we may never know

or the plane was not under his control?

posted on May, 14 2018 @ 12:43 PM
With no evidence, what they are saying is that pilot must have done it, why not anyone else?

Innocent until PROVEN guilty, NOT the other way round.

It's not just the flaperon. Other pieces of debris point to the aircraft hitting hard and breaking apart. There are pieces of cabin bulkhead along with other internal cabin pieces. The Ethiopian 767 that ditched after being hijacked, in daylight, tumbled, and didn't have pieces of the wing or cabin bulkhead break off like that. And that one was a pretty bad low speed crash.

As for the comment that we would have seen small pieces, that was an idiotic statement. We don't know where they went in the water so there was no chance to find the smaller debris. A lot of that tends to sink over time, and the current would have pulled the debris field apart and scattered it. .

Except that not everyone in the company worked in that field.

The cabin bulkhead matches the Malaysian color and monitor placement, and the parts that have serial numbers have been matched to the aircraft.
