Air Accident Expert Believes MH370 Loss Was Intentional

Canadian Investigator Says Pilot Was Committing Suicide With The Airplane

The loss of Malaysia Airlines Flight MH370 was not an accident, according to a team of aviation experts who researched the incident for the television program "60 Minutes Australia".

The team concluded that Malaysia Airlines veteran Captain Zaharie Ahmad Shah was committing suicide when he flew the Boeing 777 into the ocean. "Unfortunately, he was killing everybody else on board, and he did it deliberately," said Canadian Air crash investigator Larry Vance.

The panel recreated the flight path of the airplane reconstructed using data from military radar. The found that the airplane followed a path along the border of Malaysia and Thailand, crossing in and out of each country's airspace several times to avoid attracting the attention of the military, according to a report from MSN. No military aircraft from either country were sent to intercept the airliner.

The panel also found that the captain lowered one wing as he flow over his hometown of Penang, suggesting that he was "saying goodbye," according to 777 pilot and flight instructor Simon Hardy, who was a part of the investigative panel.

Hardy suggested that someone was at the controls of the airplane until it impacted the ocean. He believes Shah flew about 115 miles further than originally thought, which would have the wreckage well outside the area that was searched for two years. Vance said that the wreckage tha has been found suggests an impact that was not high-speed, which would have not left the parts that have been found with as little damage as they have sustained.

The Australian Transport Safety Bureau's official report said that the plane was not under control when its fuel was exhausted and it went down in the ocean on March 8, 2014. The main wreckage has still not been located.
