Mystery of flight MH370 crash solved, investigators say
Investigators are claiming to have solved the mystery of flight MH370, a Malaysian Airlines flight that vanished with 239 people on board during a flight from Kuala Lumpur to Beijing in March 2014.
According to multiple news outlets, leading air safety experts say the plane’s captain deliberately crashed the plane in a carefully-planned murder-suicide mission.
Captain Zaharie Ahmad Shah allegedly depressurized the plane, rendering everyone else onboard unconscious. That would explain why no one attempted to make any emergency calls or texts as the plane veered off course. Shah then allegedly flew the aircraft over his hometown of Penang for an “emotional goodbye” before flying into the southern Indian Ocean.
Senior Boeing 777 pilot and instructor Simon Hardy told 60 Minutes Australia that Zaharie avoided military radar detection by flying along the border of Malaysia and Thailand.
CBS News reports that the wreckage uncovered so far might prove that Zaharie had control of the aircraft and that it was not a high-speed crash.
Some family members of the MH370 victims told CBS that without forensic evidence, they will not be convinced.
