Authorities on MH370: ‘We cannot exclude the possibility of a third person or third party or unlawful interference’

Authorities on MH370: ‘We cannot exclude the possibility of a third person or third party or unlawful interference’

“We cannot deny the fact that, as we have analyzed, the systems were manually turned off with intent or otherwise.”

Malaysian authorities concluded in their final report that they cannot determine the cause disappearance of Malaysia Airlines flight 370, which happened four years ago.

This has led to the resignation of Azharuddin Abdul Rahman, the head of Malaysia’s civil aviation authority.

The final report ruled out a suicidal pilot, hacked remotely, and the theory that “lithium-ion batteries and tropical fruit in its cargo hold” managed to “create a deadly cocktail that exploded mid-air.”

The report determined “that someone manually rerouted the plane after severing communications,” which led the investigators to believe that someone hijacked the plane. From The New York Post:

“We have examined the pilot, the flight officer. We are quite satisfied with their background, with their training, with their mental health, mental state. We are not of the opinion that it could have been an event committed by the pilot,” head investigator Kok Soo Chon told reporters in Kuala Lumpur, according to Australia’s The Age newspaper.

“But at the same time, we cannot deny the fact that there was an air turn-back,’’ which put the plane off course, he said. “We cannot deny the fact that, as we have analyzed, the systems were manually turned off with intent or otherwise.

“So we feel that there’s also one possibility that could account for all these,” the official said. “No matter what we do, we cannot exclude the possibility of a third person or third party or unlawful interference.”

Aviation experts went on TV in May and expressed their belief that the pilot deliberately caused the crash.

No one will know what happened to the flight since it disappeared in March 2014 as it carried 239 people from Kuala Lumpur to Beijing.

But the report showed major failures by the air traffic control center in Kuala Lumpur, which is why Rahman decided to resign. From CNN:

Azharuddin Abdul Rahman, the chairman of the Civil Aviation Authority of Malaysia (CAAM), said in a statement that while the report did not fault the Department of Civil Aviation, there was evidence Kuala Lumpur Air Traffic Control Center “did not comply with certain Standard Operating Procedures”.

“Over the past four years, I have tried my level best to assist in the search for MH370 and I am ever resolute in finding answers we all seek towards this unfortunate tragedy as we owe it to the families and loved ones,” he said. “I am saddened to have to leave under these circumstances.”

His resignation will take effect in 14 days.

The plane sent a message to Malaysian air traffic control at 1:20AM, but did not check in with the Vietnamese controllers when it flew into Vietnam airspace.

No one raised the alarm until 6:30AM. The report stated that controllers in Malaysia and Vietnam “should have sent sent up a red flag several hours earlier” while “[T]he radio controller in Kuala Lumpur also should have been monitoring its movement.”

Plus the plane’s four emergency local transmitters failed.

and this is what you come up with when an investigation decides it’s politically safer to indulge in pure fantasy because they don’t like the evidence.

There is no “evidence” that any 3rd party took control of the plane; they have to come up with this because they have thrown out the obvious conclusion that the actual evidence collected leads one to – the Pilot did it, for reasons that we can never know.

This would mean that their pilot selection criteria was bad, that their screening methods were wrong, that their investigators who exonerated him were idiots who were tasked with trying to cover up any corporate or national culpability in this matter.

When they say “we cannot exclude the possibility of a 3rd party”, why not note that they also cannot exclude the possibility that it was space aliens? Or SeKrIt MiNd KonTrOl? Or that Bigfoot materialized in the cabin and did it himself? They can’t prove that those things didn’t happen, either.

The evidence you have developed says that the man sitting in the Captain’s chair did it deliberately, whether you like that evidence or not. And that is all the evidence there is.

Malaysian authorities concluded in their final report that they cannot determine the cause disappearance of Malaysia Airlines flight 370…

Someday, on Don Lemon’s tombstone – “It WAS a black hole!”

Did you mean “Emergency Locator Transmitters?”

the plane’s four emergency local transmitters failed.

This is quite unlikely. The emergency transmitter cannot be easily jiggered in flight.

Odds are there was “help” on the ground. That might have been a profitable investigation line.

One of the great lines from Dr Strangelove, regarding the screening of SAC base commanders.

“I think I’d like to hold off judgment on a thing like that, sir, until all the facts are in…I don’t think it’s quite fair to condemn the whole program because of a single slip up, sir.”

Nowadays, with the navigation aids in the cockpit, it is really pretty hard to do something stupid in a plane. But back in the day, one does have to wonder how many of those planes flying into mountains was accidental or deliberate.

I lean to malice here because too many of the events were so improbable that to rule coincidence is absurd.

So the Islamic government of Malaysia declares no Islamic terrorist motivation for the disappearance of the flight, despite clear evidence, like the pilot detouring to fly past his own house. Hacks. They are just whitewashing Islam.

Without The Donald CNN would have nothing since the MH370 books have been closed. It is easier to “lose” something if active intent and an in-depth knowledge of the technology are at play.

Based on the VERIFIABLE facts this is what we have, here.

The plane took-off, traveled to a point well east of Malaysia, then essentially turned around. There was no radio transmission indicating that there was any problem and all locator transmitters went off the air.The plane flew essentially a descending course which took it just south of the two airports at Penang where the plane could have safely landed if there were a mechanical problem aboard. At that point the aircraft turned to a northerly course and flew nearly over the airports and continued north, then made a turn to the east and dropped off the radar. Nothing further was heard from the aircraft. A satellite, in orbit above the Indian Ocean received what were reported to be hourly engine status pings form this, or a similar aircraft, for approximately 6 hours. Using a largely unknown algorithm, which the company constructed, two potential travel arcs were constructed. One was a northwesterly arc and one was a southwesterly arc. The extrapolated terminus of the SW arc was searched, but no evidence of the aircraft was ever found. Little search of the NW arc was done. Approximately 16 months later, parts of the missing aircraft begin to show up on Reunion Island, the Seychelles and the coast of Mozambique. Because of the currents in the Indian ocean, this wreckage could have come from near the search area in the southern Indian Ocean or from a point north of the Maldives, closer to the NW arc.

What we are left with is not much. We have no evidence to support that theory that one of the cockpit crew was anymore responsible than that there was a third party [hijacker] or a catastrophic occurrence such as a cargo hold fire. The turn and initial flight path are consistent with a descending course to Penang enter into the autopilot, as was the northwesterly turn. Also, if the aircraft continued on its course, from the final westerly turn and the “arcs” are not correct, then it would have come down somewhere northwest of the Maldives, where existing currents could have picked up the wreckage which washed ashore south of there. Though an Indian ocean course was found on the pilot’s home flight simulator, the biggest question is why, if he wished to destroy the aircraft, he did not simply dive it into the sea or land.

So, what we have is a mystery where several largely unsupported assumptions have been made which further muddle the scant evidence that exists. It is possible that it might be decades, if ever, before we learn the truth.

    “Drain the Ocean” had a long story on this yesterday. Some future day a very advanced totally autonomous vehicle could be sortied to cruise the entire Indian Ocean. Until then MH370 joins Amelia Earhart in the great unknown of pubic knowledge.

“Plus the plane’s four emergency local transmitters failed.”

This is sort of like Hillary Clinton winning all the coin tosses in the Iowa Primary. Possible, but not probable. I’m curious about the pilot and his home flight simulator. Do many pilots have flight simulators?

Curiouser and curiouser is this whole thing. Clearly there was a failure on the part of the Malaysian traffic controllers. My faith in air travel seems to be descending.

    I do not know how many commercial pilots have home flight simulators. I do know four commercial pilots and several private pilots who use them. I have found that Microsoft Pro Flight Simulator is a pretty good way to get an idea of the approach for various airports, with which you are unfamiliar. You can even get nearly real-time weather and winds aloft. And, the aircraft are very close to the performance specs of the real thing. Not bad for a program costing $100, or less, that runs on a desk top computer.

    NOT Failed as these can not be bypassed and are required for takeoff, however these can be shut off in the cockpit same as the radios http://www.cfinotebook.net/notebook/avionics-and-instruments/emergency-locator-transmitter

Maybe they were looking at their compass backwards as did Douglas ” Wrong Way ” Corrigan . Perhaps they should check for the plane in Ireland

“Plus the plane’s four emergency local(location) transmitters failed”

“the report did not fault the Department of Civil Aviation, there was evidence Kuala Lumpur Air Traffic Control Center “did not comply with certain Standard Operating Procedures”

Am I the only person who thinks the Malaysian air traffic controllers were in cahoots with the aircraft’s hijackers? Nobody seems to have investigated this angle.

The one part which bothers me the most is the absence of wreckage. A plane running at altitude on autopilot will basically plummet straight down once fuel is exhausted, and it might even breakup in the air before the catastrophic impact. The absence of wreckage strongly suggests a low-angle soft landing in water, whereupon the airplane sinks intact or mostly intact, as pressure will tear into it as it collapses. But a soft landing requires control, which strongly suggests that someone was flying it to the very end. As we have seen, the most devastating aspect in addition to the loss is the “not knowing” which is still present. People didn’t just die, they disappeared forever.

Were it an accident, say a forward fire with a locked cockpit, the rules of aviation are aviate, navigate, communicate. So you fly the plane with a problem, determine where the “nearest” suitable airport is located, which could be behind you, and once heading towards it you communicate your intentions. It might very well be that they set the autopilot for that airport but then lost the radio systems in a fire before communicating the change in plans, and those fumes then overtook the pilots.
