What Really Happened to Malaysia’s Flight 370

This is a well-written piece and worth the read if you have a few minutes. In short, the Malaysians are corrupt and know more than they have said and the answers lie with them and not in the ocean.

Great article.  Thank you


Chilling.  Spent so much time in the cockpit and the simulator that the lives of others must have become incidental


the spiralling descent, speculated to be what -- 15,000 feet per minute (?)

wonder if he rode it down?  Or did he cut pressurisation to the cockpit shortly prior and allow himself to die in comfort?

Long story short until the Malaysian's give us more, we don't have much clue about what happened. This fact is acknowledged by Langewiesche himself - yet it doesn't seem to stop him from concluding that the pilot was guilty anyway. Based on what? Actually very little - and certainly nothing that we didn't already know.

One key flaw in the theory is the fact that if the pilot really wanted to dissapear then he would have turned right, not left. If it was him, and he turned left to fly right back through Malaysian air space (after just exiting it), right across the Malaysian peninsular, then he would have to have known that the Malaysian authorities, as well as the Malaysian airforce would act as incompetently as they did. The Malaysians just had to abide by one of the many acts of protocol that they missed to foil the pilot's alleged sinister plan. There is no way he could have known he would get so lucky.

It just doesn't add up - he had already cleared Malaysian air space-  just keep going into the South China sea and literally dissapear.

Far more likely IMO, there was some catstrophic incident, rendering the plane all but unflyable. Desperately the pilot(s) tried to divert the plane to the nearest viable airport in Penang or Langkawi but succumbed to hypoxia before they got anywhere near it. They didn't make any distress call to ATC because of the standard pilot protocol of dealing with the situation and trying to understand it before saying anything to ATC. But of course they never got the opportunity to make that distress call before they became incapacitated. However the plane was still able to keep flying on autopilot until it ran out of fuel. Of course there is still the question of all the turns the plane did while the pilots were presumably dead or incapacitated, but I don't think its completely implausible.

I suspect Flight 370 will become like the mystery around Amelia Earhart or Jack the Ripper with experts putting out different and competing theories every few years from now on. Books will be written, movies made and an entire cottage industry is born.
