A Year On, What Flight Simulators Can’t Prove About Flight MH370

NBC News, a year after the loss of Malaysian Airlines flight 370, has an interesting piece about various scenarios that would explain the plane’s disappearance. From the article: The theory that the pilots turned west because of an emergency is undermined because they did not head back toward Kuala Lumpur, according to retired NTSB senior investigator Greg Feith. … Feith said that turning off the communications and taking the aircraft to the remote Indian Ocean was a course of action consistent with someone trying to purposefully lose an airliner. “It’s 20,000-plus feet deep there,” Feith said. “It’s going be very difficult to find.” He added that “the first thing you’re going to do” as a pilot during an emergency is “don the oxygen mask” and “confess to ATC [air traffic control], ‘We’ve got an issue, we need to return.'” Feith, who investigated other so-called “murder-suicide” airline crashes while at the NTSB, said that he has “always postured at least that this was an intentional act by one or both pilots.”
