Flight 370 Search Updates: Pilot Identified As Political Activist – Pilot Moved Wife and Three Children Day Before Departure – al-Qaeda Informant Warned Of Pending Hijacking In Malaysia

The pilot moved his wife and 3 kids the day before the plane goes missing and we are only just hearing about this NOW ?   Good grief.. 

The pilot of the missing Malaysia Airlines jet is pictured in a T-shirt with a Democracy is Dead slogan as fears emerge he could have hijacked the plane as an anti-government protest.

(Telegraph) [...]  Evidence of a plot by Malaysian Islamists to hijack a passenger jet in a 9/11-style attack is being investigated in connection with the disappearance of Flight MH370.

An al-Qaeda supergrass (informer) told a court last week that four to five Malaysian men had been planning to take control of a plane, using a bomb hidden in a shoe to blow open the cockpit door.

Security experts said the evidence from a convicted British terrorist was “credible”. The supergrass said that he had met the Malaysian jihadists – one of whom was a pilot – in Afghanistan and given them a shoe bomb to use to take control of an aircraft.  (link)

(Daily Mail)  Investigators say the missing Malaysia Airlines jet was hijacked, steered off-course and could have reached Pakistan.

A Malaysian government official said people with significant flying experience could have turned off the flight’s communication devices.

The representative said that hijacking theory was now ‘conclusive’, and, as a result, police have raided the luxury homes of both the captain and the co-pilot.

Zahari Ahmad Shah, 53, the pilot, and Fariq Abdul Hamid, 27, are now being investigated as police in Kuala Lumpur search for signs of foul play.  (link)

(UK Mirror) The father-of-three was a fervent supporter of Anwar Ibrahim – jailed for  homosexuality only hours before the Malaysia Airways jet disappeared

Captain Zaharie Ahmad Shah was a fervent supporter of his country’s  opposition leader who was jailed for homosexuality – illegal in Malaysia – only  hours before flight MH370 vanished with 239 passengers and crew on board, the  Sunday Mirror can reveal.

And in a new twist, it emerged that the pilot’s wife and three children moved  out of the family’s home the day before the plane’s disappearance.

The revelations came after Malaysian Prime Minister Najib Razak yesterday confirmed the Boeing 777 jet was deliberately diverted from its planned  route between his country’s capital Kuala Lumpur and Beijing.

Investigators said trackers aboard the plane, which transmit its location to  air traffic controllers, were disabled moments after take-off last Friday.

And the airliner could have flown on for seven hours after vanishing from  radar over the South China Sea.  (link)

  1. Stormy says:

    Yes, I think that is something it would have been nice to know a week ago!

  2. doodahdazee says:

    Now do not forget the signal they picked up was based on TD….Time Delay of the Satellite reception. It could have been anywhere on the red line at any time or even circling at one spot on the line the whole time Anywhere on that line. I doubt it would have flown for 7 hours on the curved route indicated. This story is BS.

    • doodahdazee says:

      Unless this is a great circle route BTW. Meaning the same heading.

      • LetJusticePrevail" says:

        Looks kinda small to be a great circle.

      • Dan cummings says:

        My understanding is not that it followed the arc but because the last signal came from a point on this arc it indicates the narrow range of places it could have been at that time, shortly before it ran out of fuel. If they were making a run for it, and it appears they were, then the pilot’s experience on how a commercial jet can pass undetected through airspace would be invaluable. Most of airfields in US aren’t manned, so no doubt most airfields it could reach aren’t manned. He could have landed it in China but hard to escape. So if hijackers intended to survive they could have picked a remote place with a Cessna-sized escape plane pre-placed. Satellite pictures may show the plane or it may have been covered with netting. Two big questions I have are whether there was a valuable cargo, and were passengers allowed to live, if this was indeed a hijacking.

        If a quiet hijacking, no one outside cockpit would have had to know they weren’t on course as on such a red eye flight most sleep immediately. many questions remain.

  3. They probably did know but were hoping the damn thing blew up or sank. Then they wouldn’t have to reveal the lapse in security/being compromised by this plan.

    Now they realize they have to let it loose since they can’t find any debris. This is what they likely wanted to avoid. Time to find that wife of his and talk to her for a good long while.

  4. Stormy says:

    trackers were disabled moments after take-off Moments? smh

  5. doodahdazee says:

    Maybe this is like JD Powers and they bailed out with a load of $$$$.

  6. It’s like an Abbott and Costello sketch.

    Abbott: “So what do you know about what happened to this plane?”

    Costello: “It’s either in the air. Or the ground. Or Underwater. Unless it blew up. But I’m pretty sure if it blew up it would not blow up underwater. ”

    Abbott: “You came to that conclusion all by yourself, did you?”

    Costello: “Well, actually, the monkey with the spinning wheel did the work, I just read it and (Gets slapped in the face) OUCH”

    Abbott: “You idiot, what’s the matter with you?”

    Costello: “I’m sorry, I’m sorry. It’s just a lot to go over right now. Oh, by the way, something you should consider for the future, Al Queda has militants in our country who plan to hijack a plane”.

  7. If this was an Al Queda plan and he was part of it, it would make sense that he would have his wife/3 kids leave. If it was a spur of the moment thing re: Ibrahim, it has nothing to do with Al Queda as they would not care to plan all these months for something that just happened the day before the attack – let alone care about a gay man.

    In other words, either those who are sending out news are trying to pin it on him hoping the word of a terror attack never gets out – if that was Al Queda, or he decided to change his entire life and kill people/use them as hostages to get a man freed.

    What is most likely? Remember, our conclusions are only drawn on elements we are allowed to know about.

  8. auscitizenmom says:

    Well, I certainly understand the Malaysian government’s problem now. They look like idiots or total incompetents. Or both. I wonder if these guys are moderate Muslims.

    • It just feels like it was an al queda attack, he was part of it and somebody is using the ibrahim story to make people think it’s all on the pilot. The fact that his family left the house the day before is a troubling sign but I think a political person is more likely to be radicalized and join an attack on a major scale instead of just react to yesterday’s news, freak out and take over a plane.

      But we’ll see. I think.

      • LetJusticePrevail" says:

        Some nut cases fantasize for years about some crack pot scheme, but never act. Others act when something provides a “trigger” that drives them over the edge. This man’s trigger might have been losing his family, and then seeing the living icon of his political ideology be jailed. He had already said that the May 5th election was the day Democracy died.

  9. elvischupacabra says:

    Like I said before, you can’t just hide this airplane anywhere. The only hangers big enough for this airplane, which is basically 200′ x 220′ x 65′ are at major airports. Even under some type of camouflage netting strung between tall trees or poles, a trained image analyst knows “something” is under there, and in this case, the list of “what” is very short.

    I can guarantee, they’re looking at all the available concrete right now. Most of those will be eliminated because the taxiways, ramp areas and turn-offs can’t handle a 777. Since Boeing maintains a database of ETOPS (Extended Twin-engine Operations) alternate airports, the investigating governments already have their “short list”.

    It’s a matter of time and… will.

  10. justfactsplz says:

    It’s amazing that facts are so slow to come out in this investigation. I fear if this plane is not found that it will be used later to launch a terror attack. Where did he move his wife and kids, out of the country or what? It appears games are being played about getting to the bottom of this.

    • LetJusticePrevail" says:

      Maybe he didn’t move them anywhere. Maybe his wife got tired of his activism and just split with the kids?

      Or,maybe they are being held hostage somewhere, by al-Qaeda?

      • justfactsplz says:

        Anything is possible. All that is known according to them he moved them the day before. I also keep thinking about that naval station we have over there. They have to know something I think.

      • Jim Brown says:

        He was a pro-Democracy activist, not exactly a terrorist profile but one never knows.

        • Irish Eyes says:

          Maybe he was a “pro-democracy” activist like Islam is the “religion of peace.” Or maybe he is being smeared as misdirection.

    “And in a new twist, it emerged that the pilot’s wife and three children moved out of the family’s home the day before the plane’s disappearance.”

    I’m waiting for the next report:
    ‘In an even more bizarre and shocking turn the pilot’s wife and three children were located after months of hiding in plain site by pretending just to be neighbors that were housesitting for the family.’

    • auscitizenmom says:

      Yes, that. SMH

    • LetJusticePrevail" says:

      Did they move out, or were they taken hostage?

      • auscitizenmom says:

        Ah, now that is something to wonder about.

        • LetJusticePrevail" says:

          It would not be the first time that someone with essential skills was forced to cooperate against their will to protect their family. I’m wondering why we haven’t heard about the whereabouts of his wife and children?

          It might be nothing,but then again, it could be something.

          • justfactsplz says:

            Yes it could be. I am also thinking about the shoe bomb and wanting to hijack one of their planes. The two young men with the stolen passports, could one of them have been wearing a shoe bomb to blast open the cockpit and others rushed the cockpit? If the pilot didn’t hijack the plane I would say it’s in the ocean. It would take a lot of experience to put that thing down someplace in the dark.

            • LetJusticePrevail" says:

              Agreed. The 9/11 attackers proved that they could navigate a jetliner into a large building, but I don’t believe they could have ever landed one in a single piece, not without experience. That’s why I believe that either the pilot or copilot were involved, either willingly or by some sort of coercion. Maybe the hijackers kept them alive, specifically to navigate to a certain destination, and land the plane?

              I’m trying to remember, but didn’t the only 9/11 plane that contacted the ground (the one that crashed in PA) do so by Skyphone or cell phone? If that’s the case, I suppose it could be possible for someone to have gained access to this cockpit and overpowered the pilot and copilot before they could radio the ground. From there, a person with some knowledge of that type of plane could have either ordered the transponders and ACARS to be turned off, or done it themselves.

              There’s just so many possibilities.

  13. FlyingSailor says:

    After more than a week of trying to piece things together, I’m fully satisfied on two very solid and hard facts:

    1 – The plane is missing. I’ll wait until something is conclusively proven with regards to why it’s missing.

    2 – The Malaysian government has demonstrated that they’re completely incompetent in running this search and investigation. Time for them to step aside and let someone who actually knows what they’re doing to take over.

  14. Mr. Izz says:

    I’ve got a question. They say that there is a “ping” received stating that the engine is running and that information is relayed directly back to Rolls-Royce (the creator of the engine). Even though no “data” is received, they still receive information that the engine is active. How easily can this be disabled? Assuming the plane has landed somewhere, and takes off again, would this information suddenly be available to the authorities?

    • Jim Brown says:

      As I understand, once the engine is running the data pack, if you will, starts and is ready to start transmitting when prompted by the satellite. When the engine is turned off the data pack is turned off.

    • CrankyinAZ says:

      It’s not just the engine’s – it’s the entire airplane system that sends the pings through the satellite system (InmarSat). Data goes not only to Rolls-Royce but to Boeing… and probably some of the other major manufacturers. It is a passive system.. it can’t be shut down while the plane is in flight – because it’s in the radome (spelling I’m not sure of) – which is mounted either near the tail of the plane or underneath – on the outside.

      If the plane landed and is being used for “bad” purposes – you can be sure those systems will be disabled/destroyed as well.

      How do I know this.. family works for the company that makes the equipment for this system. I’ve been asking lots of questions… believe me!

  16. justfactsplz says:

    I would be checking the four people who signed in but did not fly. Why did they back out at the last minute? Maybe they know something. I don’t take Pakistan’s word for it that the plane didn’t reach them either. It may or may not have. They’ve been upset with us since Bin Laden. They harbor terrorists.

    • LetJusticePrevail" says:

      Good point. Those 4 people should be questioned and/or investigated to determine if they had any reason to decide to miss that flight. I hear that they are also looking into the ground crew that serviced the plane before take off. Is it possible that one or more of them were involved in a plot, and allowed someone to stow away on the plane before take off?

      • justfactsplz says:

        That is possible. They could have also provided the plane with extra supplies. Who knows what could have been hidden in the cargo hold or what else their payload was.

  17. jodster says:

    I don’t think his family moved out. According to Malaysia Mail website the captain and his family have a second house in Subang that they often stay at. Sounds like they split their time between 2 houses. Seems pretty normal if they have 2 houses.

  18. aprilyn43 says:

    Well its not surprising that its a Islamic terrorist attack! And its not surprising its taken this long to have that truth disclosed! The world people and leaders are in total denial on what Islam is and what its goals are! No one wants to give Islam or muslims a “black eye” … heaven forbid that the truth be told!

  19. Jim Brown says:

    That plane is no the ground in Bangladesh or the Maldives Islands or in Myanmar, but that will always be Burma to me. I am beginning to believe this is probably some sort of pirate operation, kidnap these people then ransom then ransom the aircraft back to Malaysia Airlines. Much like the pirates that hijack the ships (Mearsk Alabama for instance) off the east coast of Africa.

  20. nomorebsplease says:

    If it is hijack how do the passengers eat for a week? They are most likely dead. The q is did the plane have a target and, if so, was the target on the ground or not?

    If there was hostages the govt would have been contacted already most likely. Thats the problem…

  21. Jury says:

    Insurance job

  22. FlyingSailor says:

    And in latest twist, AP reporting that the airline believes it was the First Officer who made the last radio transmission, after everything was turned off.

  23. RWeGettingTheFacts says:

    This looks like the homosexual, married pilot’s wife left the pilot when she found out he was homosexual because he was jailed for it. Seeing his life was over in one sense, he may have decided to end his and everyone else’s for spite. There’s no terrorist communications. Why aren’t the TV stations covering the homosexuality aspect of this? You have to wonder if it is because some reporters and actors are homosexual…are they concerned about the controversy this will cause! Come on…this looks fairly obvious, especially if this pilot was heading to jail for many years for his homosexuality. If in fact he was heading to jail, why on earth did they allow him to fly a plane full of passengers!!! I hope all these passengers are somewhere safe but this looks like it may be a suicide.
