    As posted way back, Thai and Malaysian Air Defense Systems both tracked it. Recordings are available from both. Yes the recordings would be classified secret.

    As would anything else that is classified.

    You can keep telling that to the whackjobs yet it still goes in one ear and out of the other.

    For some bizarre reason they think they are entitled to state secrets, yet at the same time they tell you they already know everything that you don't.

    Bunch of fucking psychos.

    This magazine-promoting whackjob pales in comparison.

    Philip Baum, editor of Aviation Security International and visiting professor of aviation security at Coventry University, said: “No officials seem to want to even contemplate the possibility of a stowaway being on board.”

    Just like the gypos.... can't face the truth.

    A final report on the disappearance of Malaysia Airlines flight MH370 is a cover-up of the captain’s actions, according to industry sources in Malaysia.


    One source said the “seven flight waypoints” recovered from Capt. Zaharie Ahmad Shah’s flight simulator program — flown just weeks before the plane’s disappearance and which replicated MH370’s final flight — were all from one session.

    But Malaysian authorities, in the final report, found the waypoints were from separate sessions and therefore of no significance.




    “There is no question the waypoints were from one flight into the southern Indian Ocean,” the industry source said.


    “This is a cover-up.”


    Another source, who works as a contractor to Malaysia Airlines, told The Weekend West that “very early on” after MH370 disappeared the airline’s operational management said “Captain Zaharie Ahmad Shah was responsible”.


    The final report released on July 30 exonerated both pilots, a finding that has been met by disbelief.


    Chief investigator Kok Soo Chon said “we are not of the opinion that it could have been an event committed by the pilot”.


    The Australian Transport Safety Authority report on the search for MH370 issued in October said: “In the six weeks before the accident flight, the pilot in command had used his simulator to fly a route similar to part of the route flown by MH370 up the Strait of Malacca, with a left-hand turn and track into the southern Indian Ocean.”


    But the Malaysian report dismisses this and says that “the Royal Malaysian Police forensic report concluded that there were no unusual activities other than game-related flight simulations”.


    The flight simulator is not a game. It is a recognised and endorsed flight-training tool used by many airlines and the US military.

    One of the most respected analysts of the MH370 disappearance, Independent Group member Victor Iannello, has also criticised the report.

    “How can Malaysian investigators ignore that the captain had the best opportunity and capability to divert the plane?” he said.

    “How does the compressed time line of the diversion fit any other possibility?

    “It is understandable that the safety report did not apportion blame to the captain. However, it is not understandable that the report deflected blame to an unnamed third party.”


    Mr Iannello said it was odd that the Royal Malaysian Police concluded there were no unusual activities given the “extraordinary coincidence” that a simulated flight — which included a departure from Kuala Lumpur — ending in the southern Indian Ocean was recovered.

    If it's true it means he had been planning it a long time....scary thought

    Assuming only he is able to control the plane.

    Differing conclusion one say multiple simulations the other says one. It would appear to be a simple task to determine the truth.

    Assuming it was the pilot was the simulation operator.

    Yes, it was his simulator in his house.

    And yes, Malaysia doesn't want to admit that one of their own committed such a heinous act.

    More to the point, they're about to do a Glasgow Rangers and close their airline, thus opening a new one that isn't liable for all the lawsuits.

    Clever little fuckers.

    Drain The Oceans: Malaysia Airlines 370 airs on National Geographic on Thursday September 27 at 8pm.
    I think that's 8pm UK on their version.

    Investigators say mystery ‘third entity’ may hold key to MH370

    By Marnie O’Neill, News.com.au

    October 24, 2018

    French investigators have uncovered a mysterious “third entity” which may be withholding technical data about the path taken by missing Malaysia Airlines Flight 370.

    They have also identified a number of “curious passengers” aboard the Boeing 777 who they believe warrant further investigation.
    The potentially explosive new developments were revealed by Ghyslain Wattrelos, a French national who lost his wife and two teenage children on MH370, following his meeting last week with judges overseeing the Gendamarie Air Transport (GTA) investigation.


    Wattrelos said he was told the French team had found “inconsistencies” in the Malaysian investigation’s official report and identified the presence of “curious” passengers, whom “we should continue to investigate.”

    They include a Malaysian national and aeronautics specialist seated directly under MH370’s Satcom module who potentially had the technical knowledge to hack the plane’s communication systems and disguise its route.
    The GTA, an arm of the French military, is seeking to verify satellite and other technical data used by the Australian Transport Safety Bureau (ATSB) to plot the plane’s journey to a remote part of the southern Indian Ocean off Western Australia, where it is believed to have crashed in 2014 killing all 239 people on board.


    Wattrelos said investigators hoped to travel to the US to meet with the FBI, which examined MH370 Captain Zaharie Shah’s home flight simulator and representatives of Boeing in a bid to obtain and re-examine raw data.
    A similar trip planned in September 2017 was canceled after US authorities demanded the signing of “confidentiality clauses” to protect Boeing “industry secrets.”
    Wattrelos said French investigators had identified a “third entity” in possession of information and/or data relating to the movements of the missing plane.

    “We are a little angry and now we want to say stop, it is time that the United States really cooperate on this issue,” Wattrelos said.
    “It is necessary to go there because there are three entities that hold important information for understanding what happened on this flight.”


    In addition to verifying data provided by the FBI and Boeing, investigators were seeking to establish whether the “third entity” sold software capable of reprogramming or even hacking the Satcom, the antenna that communicates to the Inmarsat satellite from the aircraft.
    “The essential trail is the Inmarsat data. Either they are wrong or they have been hacked,” Wattrelos said.
    “However, these satellite data are essential to better understand the trajectory of the aircraft.”
    The identity of the “third entity” is unclear but in a Facebook message posted over the weekend, Wattrelos refers to SITA.
    SITA is a company which supplies Malaysia Airlines with communications via VHF radio and Inmarsat satellites for its fleet’s ACARS (Aircraft Communications Addressing and Reporting System) avionics.
    In the wake of MH370’s disappearance, SITA issued a statement saying it was co-operating with authorities investigating the plane’s fate.
    “The Malaysia Airlines ACARS avionics communications via the SITA network is proprietary to the airline,” it said.
    “We are fully supporting the airline and all the relevant authorities in their ongoing investigation of flight MH370.”

    Engineer and aviation expert Victor Iannello, who was a member of the Independent Group of advisers assisting the ATSB in the original search for MH370, expressed doubt the French would uncover evidence that data had been deliberately removed or hacked.
    “It’s not clear what additional information the French investigators expect to obtain while in the US. Boeing has co-operated with the Annex 13 investigation team, and is unlikely to provide private French investigators with data that has not already been made public,” he wrote on his blog. Meanwhile, the FBI is unlikely to release information on matters related to ongoing or past investigations.


    “The mysterious ‘third entity’ referred to by Mr. Wattrelos that might be selling software capable of maliciously altering SATCOM data is also unknown, although there are a handful of companies in the US and Canada that supply hardware and software for designing, building, and testing parts of the Inmarsat network.”
    Iannello said independent investigators trying to crack the MH370 mystery were “at an impasse.”
    “Although the overwhelming consensus is that MH370 did indeed crash in the Southern Indian Ocean, the considerable efforts of official and private investigators have not succeeded in locating the debris field on the seabed,” he said.
    “The data we have, notably the satellite data, is imprecise, so additional data is needed to reconstruct the trajectory of the plane.
    “There is always the chance that during Mr. Wattrelos’ visit to the US, some new evidence or insights will be uncovered that help us to better understand the disappearance and to find the plane.
    “More likely, the existence of helpful new information will be found in Malaysia.”

    France is the only country still actively investigating the fate of the plane, which vanished en route from Kuala Lumpur to Beijing on March 8, 2014.
    A three year, $140 million Australian taxpayer-funded search of a previously uncharted 74,000-square-mile section of seabed failed to uncover any trace of the doomed jet.
    A second search carried out earlier this year by deep-sea exploration company Ocean Infinity, which was offered a finder’s fee of up to $60 million by the Malaysian government if it found the wreckage within 90 days, also came up empty.

    How was the wing flap, "from the plane", identified? A serial number supplied by the manufacturer or service company?

    A boat, a plane or a submarine, could have placed it there very easily one dark night.
