Missing Malaysia Airlines flight MH370 was likely steered off course deliberately by someone and flew over the Southern Indian Ocean for over seven hours after communications were severed, according to a safety report into the disaster released Monday.
The report by a 19-member international team provided no firm conclusions about what happened, and the head of the MH370 safety investigation team said that more definitive answers could come if the plane’s wreckage and black boxes are found.
The article goes on to state the following:
The Boeing 777 carrying 239 people from Kuala Lumpur to Beijing vanished March 8, 2014, and is presumed to have crashed in the far southern Indian Ocean. The report noted that it was difficult for the aircraft’s course change to be attributed to mechanical or system failures.
“It is more likely that such maneuvers are due to the systems being manipulated,” the report said.
The report released Monday added that there was insufficient information to determine if the aircraft broke up in the air, or during impact with the ocean.
Chief investigator Kok Soo Chon said during a media briefing there was no evidence of abnormal behavior or stress among the two pilots – Capt. Zaharie Ahmad Shah and co-pilot, Fariq Abdul Hamid – that could lead them to hijack the plane. All the passengers were also cleared by police and had no pilot training, the investigator said.
“We are not of the opinion it could have been an event committed by the pilots,” Kok said, adding that investigators were not ruling out any possibility since the aircraft’s change in course was manually done and the systems in the plane were also manually turned off, according to Reuters.
“We cannot exclude that there was an unlawful interference by a third party,” Kok said.
