The friend said the disappearance of the Boeing 777 happened as Captain Zaharie’s world was crumbling. “He’s one of the finest pilots around and I’m no medical expert, but with all that was happening in his life Zaharie was probably in no state of mind to be flying.” Sources close to the inquiry were quoted by Britain’s Daily Telegraph as saying investigators believed Flight 370 was crashed deliberately.
So after all the conjecture, supposition or speculation it comes down to the simplest, most straightforward explanation for the status of Malaysian flight MH370. It’ll be unlikely that they ever find the flight data recorder in 23,000ft of water in the South Indian ocean, but even if so it can’t explain the purposeful actions of a pilot whose gutless actions took the lives of 238 other people. Still, desperation found the man a convenient vehicle to satisfy its craving.
The media, particularly Fox News, hung on to this story for weeks, stirring curiosity and fomenting self-indulgent ratings. The lawyers will no doubt feed off the vestigial carcass of this tragic flight for weeks and months to come. One man takes a quarter of a billion dollar jet and dumps it in one of the most inhospitable places on earth. Simple. The complexities accumulate when people are involved in the details.
