Suicidal pilot could have brought down Flight MH370, says ex-PM

Digital ARt for the ATSB story

MH370 vanished on March 8, 2014 with 239 passengers and crew on board and it still has not been found.

"[The revelation] was supposed to be informed to the Malaysian government".

Two formal investigations which were led by Australia and Malaysia have failed to uncover the whereabouts of the missing plane.

Mr Higgins said the true cause of the crash would not be known "for sure until we find the aircraft" and "an worldwide inquiry would help toward that end".

"It would have been deemed unfair and legally irresponsible since the black boxes and cockpit voice recorders had not been found and hence, there was no conclusive proof whether the pilot was exclusively or jointly responsible", Najib, who was the prime minister when the plane carrying 239 people vanished six years ago during a midnight flight from Kuala Lumpur to Beijing, told Free Malaysia Today.

Najib explained to on the net information portal Free Malaysia Right now that Malaysian officials experienced regarded this kind of a scenario for the duration of their investigation but experienced picked not to make their sights community.

There has been a change of government in Malaysia since the crash.

Malaysian police Chief Abdul Hamid Bador, who took part in the probe, on Wednesday said there was no evidence of any involvement by the captain, whose family has long denied he was suicidal.

Abbott was the prime minister during the MH370 tragedy.

Critics have claimed the Malaysian government, which owns Malaysia Airlines, tried to cover up the murder-suicide theory to save face.

"I want to be precisely understood at the highest levels of leadership (Malaysia - ed.) were pretty sure that it was a suicide pilot".

"If I'm wrong then it probably means the aircraft has been taken by aliens or is sitting in a hangar somewhere in Kazakhstan", he said.

Australia played a key role in the unsuccessful search spread over 12,000 sq km in the Indian Ocean, which is the largest in aviation history. A later search by American company Ocean Infinity scoured more than 96,000 square kilometres to no avail.

Debris that washed ashore in the western Indian Ocean has been confirmed as coming from the missing Boeing 777 and indicated a broad expanse of the ocean where the plane likely crashed after running out of fuel. Most of the passengers were Chinese.

THE A$200 million (RM600 million) spent on searching for Malaysia Airlines flight MH370 was wasted because the Australian Transport Safety Bureau refused to accept the murder-suicide theory and assumed that the plane ended as a ghost flight, or a death dive, reports The Australian.

Mr Bailey said the search came within about 30km of where he thought the wreckage was.

Mr Abbott added that if the investigation was somehow misled by the assumption the pilot was innocent, then it should be reopened.

"Why now? If it's true, for six years, we have been living a lie", she said.
