Zachary Ahmad Shah (pictured) was the pilot of the doomed flight
PILOT Hijacked HIS PLANE?
Pilot Zachary Ahmad Shah planned the massacre due to personal issues by locking his co-pilot in the cockpit, shutting down all communications, depressurizing the main cabin, and then shutting down the plane to keep flying on autopilot until it ran out of power. fuel.
This was the popular theory for several weeks after the plane went missing.
According to rumors in Kuala Lumpur, his personal problems included a breakup with his wife, Fiza Khan, and his fury that his relative, opposition leader Anwar Ibrahim, was sentenced to five years in prison for sodomy shortly before he was imprisoned. on the plane for the flight to Beijing.
But the pilot’s wife angrily denied any personal problems, and other family members and his friends said he was a dedicated family man and loved his job.
This theory was also the conclusion of the first independent study of the crash, by New Zealand aviation accident researcher Ewen Wilson.
Wilson, the founder of Kiwi Airlines and a commercial pilot himself, came to the shocking conclusion after considering “every conceivable alternative scenario.”
However, he was unable to provide any convincing evidence to support his theory.
The claims are made in the book Goodnight Malaysia 370, which Wilson co-wrote with New Zealand journalist Jeff Taylor.
It was also rumored that Zachary used a flight simulator at his home to plot a path to a remote island.
However, officials in Kuala Lumpur said that Malaysian police and FBI technical experts found nothing to indicate that he planned to hijack the plane after carefully examining his flight simulator.
There are also theories that the tragic disappearance could have been a heroic act of self-sacrifice on the part of the pilot.
Australian aviation enthusiast Michael Gilbert believes the doomed plane caught fire mid-flight, forcing the pilot to plot a course away from densely populated areas.
IF NOT THE PILOT, WAS THE CO-PILOT RESPONSIBLE FOR THE PUZZLE?
Rumor-mongers suspected co-pilot Farik Abdul Hamid, 27, again due to personal issues, of overpowering the pilot and incapacitating the aircraft, causing it to die, with crew and passengers unable to get through the locked cockpit door.
Theorists have speculated that he had relationship problems and this was his dramatic way of taking his own life.
But he was engaged to 26-year-old captain Nadira Ramli, a pilot for another airline, and loved his job. There is no known reason why he took any fatal action.
There are a number of outlandish theories about the plane’s disappearance.
Others have suggested that because he was known to occasionally invite young women into the cockpit during a flight, this time he did and something went wrong.
In March, young Jonty Roos revealed that in 2011 she spent her entire flight in the cockpit, being entertained by smoking Hamid.
Interest in the co-pilot was renewed when it was revealed that he was the last person to communicate from the cockpit after the communications system was disabled.
DID THE RUSSIANS STOLEN THE MH370 AND FLIGHT TO KAZAKHSTAN
The expert said the missing Malaysia Airlines Flight 370 was hijacked on the orders of Vladimir Putin and landed secretly in Kazakhstan.
Jeff Wise, the American science writer who led CNN’s coverage of the Boeing 777-200E, based his outlandish theory on the signals the plane emitted within seven hours of disappearing, which were recorded by British telecommunications company Inmarsat.
Wise believes the hijackers “tampered with” the plane’s navigational data to make it look like it was flying in a different direction, but delivered it to the Baikonur Cosmodrome, which Russia is leasing from Kazakhstan.
However, Wise admits to New York Magazine that he does not know why Vladimir Putin needed to hijack a plane full of people and that his idea is somewhat “crazy”.
Wise also noted that there were three Russians on board the plane, two of whom had Ukrainian passports.
Air crash experts analyzed the satellite data and found, like the data recorded by Inmarsat, that the aircraft continued to fly for several hours after the loss of communication.
Careful examination of the evidence showed that MH370 made three turns since the last radio call, first to the left, then two more, heading the aircraft west and then south towards Antarctica.
MH370 USED BY TERRORISTS IN SUICIDE ATTACK ON CHINA NAVY
This extraordinary claim was made by 41-year-old British yachtswoman Catherine Tee from Liverpool, whose initial account of seeing a plane on fire in the night sky made headlines around the world.
Upon arriving in Phuket, Thailand after sailing across the Indian Ocean from Cochin, southern India, with her husband, she said, “I could see the outline of the plane—it looked longer than planes usually do. There was something like black smoke. behind.’
Ms Tee’s general description of the time and place was vague, and she lost all credibility when she later stated on her blog that she believed MH370 was a kamikaze aircraft that had targeted a flotilla of Chinese ships and had been shot down before how he could crash into the vessels.
She wrote on her Saucy Sailoress blog that, without solid evidence from satellite data, the plane she saw was flying at low altitude towards the military convoy she and her husband had seen in recent nights. She added that internet research showed that a Chinese flotilla was in the area at the time.
While the wreckage proves the plane sank in the Indian Ocean, the location of the main underwater wreckage and their important “black box” data loggers remains stubbornly elusive.
The plane landed on the water and was seen floating in the Andaman Sea
On March 8, on a flight from Jeddah to Kuala Lumpur over the Andaman Sea, Malaysian Raja Dalela, 53, saw what she thought was a plane sitting on the surface of the water.
She was unaware of the ongoing search for MH370. She alerted the flight attendant, who told her to go back to sleep.
“I was shocked to see what looked like an airplane tail and wing on the water,” she said.
It was only when she told her friends about what she had seen while landing in Kuala Lumpur that she learned about the missing plane. She saw the object around 2:30 pm Malaysian time.
She said she was able to identify several ships and islands before spotting a silver object that she said was an aircraft.
But her story was ridiculed by pilots who said it would be impossible to see part of the plane in the water from 35,000 feet or seven miles.
On the same day, Ms. Raja filed an official report with the police and remained unconvinced.
“I know what I saw,” she said.
PLANE HAS A CATASTROPHIC SYSTEM FAILURE AND MADE ACCIDENTAL LANDING ON THE OCEAN
As a result of a catastrophic event, such as a fire that disabled most of the equipment, the pilots turned the plane back towards the Malaysian Peninsula in the hope of landing at the nearest airport.
Satellite data, plausible or not, suggests the plane did make a U-turn, and theorists say the pilots would have had no reason to change course unless they were facing an emergency.
A fire in a similar Boeing 777 aircraft parked at Cairo Airport in 2011 was found to have been caused by a problem with the first officer’s oxygen mask supply tube.
Stuarts Lowe, who has been involved in litigation in connection with a number of recent air crashes, believes the plane crashed after a fire broke out in the cockpit, similar to the one on the Cairo airport runway.
After investigating the fire in Cairo, the Egyptian Central Air Accident Investigation Authority (EAAICD) released its final report, which revealed that the fire originated near the supply tube of the first officer’s oxygen mask.
The cause of the fire could not be determined, but investigators identified a problem with a hose in the cockpit that was used to supply oxygen to the crew in case of decompression.
After a 2011 fire, U.S. aircraft owners were ordered to replace the system – an estimated cost of $2,596 (£1,573) per aircraft. It is unknown if Malaysia Airlines made the change.
If one of the pilots wanted to crash the plane, why turn it around? Thus, the turn suggests that they were trying to land as soon as possible due to an emergency.
USA SHOT PLANE FEARING TERRORIST ATTACK ON DIEGO GARCIA
The Boeing 777 was shot down by the Americans, who feared that the plane had been hijacked and was going to be used to attack a US military base on Diego Garcia Atoll in the Indian Ocean. That’s what conspiracy theorists say.
And former French airline director Marc Dugen said he was warned by British intelligence that he was taking risks exploring the corner.
It is impossible to verify whether Dugane received such a warning and why he believes the plane was shot down by the Americans.
But in addition to the theory that the plane was flown to Diego Garcia by either pilot Zachary or a hijacker, there was a claim that there was a “training” flight to the island on the pilot’s home flight simulator.
Professor Glees said, “Americans are not interested in doing something like that and not telling the world about it.
“Theoretically, they might want to shoot down a plane that they thought was attacking them, but they wouldn’t just launch missiles, they would first investigate it with fighter jets and quickly realize that even if it had to be shot down, the world needs to know .
Mr. Rosenshine said: “The US would not have been able to hide this fact, and in any case, if it were true, they would have admitted their actions, as this would have prevented a successful terrorist action in this case and served as a deterrent for future terrorist attacks. “.
