Pilot Zaharie Ahmad Shah planned mass murder due to personal problems, locking his co-pilot out of the cockpit, closing all communications, depressurizing the main cabin and then turning off the plane so that it continued to fly on autopilot until it ran out of fuel .

That was the popular theory in the weeks after the plane's disappearance.

His personal problems, according to rumors in Kuala Lumpur, include a break with his wife Fizah Khan, and his anger that a family member, opposition leader Anwar Ibrahim, had received a five-year prison sentence for sodomy shortly before boarding the plane for the flight to Beijing.

But the pilot's wife angrily denied all personal problems and other family members and his friends said he was a dedicated family man and loved his job.


This theory was also the conclusion of the first independent investigation into the disaster by the New Zealand-based air accident investigator, Ewan Wilson.

Wilson, the founder of Kiwi Airlines and a commercial pilot himself, came to the shocking conclusion after considering & # 39; every conceivable alternative scenario & # 39 ;.

However, he has not been able to provide convincing evidence to support his theory.

The allegations are made in the book & # 39; Goodnight Malaysian 370 & # 39 ;, which Wilson wrote with the New Zealand broadsheet journalist, Geoff Taylor.

It was also rumored that Zaharie used a flight simulator at home to set out a path to a remote island.

However, officials in Kuala Lumpur stated that the Malaysian police and the FBI technical experts had found nothing to suggest that he intended to hijack the flight after he had thoroughly examined his flight simulator.

And there are also theories that tThe tragic disappearance may have been a heroic act of sacrifice by the pilot.


Australian aviation enthusiast Michael Gilbert believes that the doomed plane caught fire in the middle of the flight and forced the pilot to set course outside the densely populated areas.


Co-pilot Fariq Abdul Hamid, 27, again for personal problems, was suspected by rumors that he had overpowered the pilot and switched off the aircraft, flying it to his downfall with crew and passengers who could not get through the closed cockpit door.

Theoretics have suggested that he had relationship problems and this was his dramatic way of living his own life.

But he was engaged to marry Captain Nadira Ramli, 26, a co-pilot with another airline, and loved his job. There are no known reasons for him to take deadly action.

Others have suggested that since he was known to have occasionally invited young women into the cockpit during a flight, he had done this this time and something had gone wrong.

Young Jonti Roos said in March that she was going through a full flight in 2011 in the cockpit with Hamid, who was smoking.

The interest in the co-pilot was renewed when it was revealed that he was the last person to communicate from the cockpit after the communication system was cut off.



An expert has claimed that the missing Malaysia Airlines flight 370 was hijacked by order of Vladimir Putin and landed in secret in Kazakhstan.

Jeff Wise, an American science journalist who has directed CNN & # 39; s coverage of the Boeing 777-200E, has based his bizarre theory on pings that the aircraft left seven hours after it went missing, registered by British telecommunications company Inmarsat.

Wise believes that hijackers have simulated the navigation data of the aircraft & # 39; & # 39; to make it look like it was going in a different direction, but flew it to the Baikonur-Kosmodrome, which is rented by Russia from Kazakhstan.

But Wise admits in New York Magazine that he doesn't know why Vladimir Putin would want to steal a plane full of people and that his idea is somewhat & # 39; crazy & # 39; is.


Wise also noticed that there were three Russian men aboard the flight, two of whom were Ukrainian passport holders.

Aviation disaster experts analyzed satellite data and discovered – such as the data recorded by Inmarsat – that the aircraft flew around for hours after losing contact.

Careful examination of the evidence has revealed that the MH370 made three turns after the last call, first one turn to the left, then another two turns, with the plane to the west and then to the south towards Antarctica.


This extraordinary claim came from the 41-year-old British sailor Katherine Tee from Liverpool, whose first report of seeing what she thought was a burning plane in the night sky brought the headlines around the world.

Upon arrival at Thailand's Phuket after she and her husband had sailed across the Indian Ocean from Cochin, South India, she said: “I could see the contour of the plane – it seemed longer than planes usually to do. Some black smoke seemed to be flowing from behind. & # 39;

The general description of Mrs. Tee's time and place was vague and she lost all credibility when she later stated on her blog that she believed MH370 was a kamikaze aircraft aimed at a fleet of Chinese ships and was shot before it hit the ground could crash. the ships.

Without solid evidence of the satellite data, she wrote on her blog, Saucy Sailoress, the plane she saw flying at low altitude to the military convoy that she and her husband had seen the past nights. She added that internet research showed that a Chinese fleet was nearby at that time.

While the debris proved that the plane was going down in the Indian Ocean, the location of the main underwater wreck - and its crucial black-box data recorders - remains stubbornly elusive.

On a flight from Jeddah to Kuala Lumpur that crossed the Andaman Sea on March 8, the Malaysian woman saw Raja Dalelah, 53, which she believed was a plane on the surface of the water.

She did not know about the search that was started for MH370. She warned a flight attendant who told her to fall asleep again.

& # 39; I was shocked to see what looked like the tail and wing of an airplane on the water, & # 39; she said.

Only when she told her friends on the landing in Kuala Lumpur what she had seen did she hear about the missing jet. She had seen the object around 2.30 pm Malaysian time.


She said she could have identified several ships and islands before she saw the silver object she said an airplane.

But her story was laughed at by pilots who said it would have been impossible to see part of an airplane in the water from 35,000 feet or seven miles.

Mrs. Raja filed a police report the same day and kept her story.

& # 39; I know what I saw, & # 39; she said.



A catastrophic event such as a fire that turned off much of the equipment resulted in the pilots turning the plane back to the Malaysian peninsula hoping to land at the nearest airport.

Satellite data, credible or not, suggest that the aircraft was turning around and theorists say there would be no reason for pilots to change course unless faced with an emergency.

A fire in a similar Boeing 777 jet parked at Cairo airport in 2011 was found to have been caused by a problem with the oxygen tubes of the first officer's oxygen mask.

Stewarts Law, who has litigated in a series of recent air disasters, believes the aircraft crashed after a fire – similar to the fire on the Cairo runway – broke into the cockpit.

After an investigation into the Cairo eruption, the Egyptian Aircraft Accident Investigation Central Directorate (EAAICD) published their final report, which showed that the fire started near the oxygen mask supply tubes of the first officer.

The cause of the fire could not be determined unambiguously, but investigators found a problem with the cockpit hose that was used to deliver oxygen to the crew in the event of decompression.

After the 2011 fire, American aircraft owners were instructed to replace the system – it was estimated that it cost $ 2,596 (£ 1,573) per aircraft. It was not known whether Malaysia Airlines had implemented the change.

If a pilot wanted to crash the plane, why would you turn it around? So the turn-around suggests that they tried to land as quickly as possible due to an emergency situation.


The Boeing 777 was shot down by the Americans who feared the plane had been hijacked and was about to attack the US military base on the atoll Diego Bracia in the Indian Ocean. So claim conspiracy theorists.

And former French aviation director Marc Dugain said he had been warned by the British intelligence service that he dared to take risks by investigating this approach.

There is no way to check if Dugain has received such a warning or why he thinks the Americans shot the plane.

But adding to the theory that the plane was flown to Diego Garcia, either by pilot Zaharie or a hijacker, the claim was that on the pilot's flight simulator a & # 39; training flight & # 39; to the island.

Professor Glees said: & # 39; The Americans would have no interest in doing something like that and not telling the world.

& # 39; In theory they might want to shoot an airplane that they thought was attacking them, but they would not only fire rockets, they would first investigate with hunters and soon realize that even if it had to be shot, the world should know. & # 39;

Rosenschein said: “The US could not have concealed this fact and at least if it were true, they would have admitted their action because it would have prevented a successful terrorist action on this occasion and as a deterrent to future terrorist attacks. & # 39;
