Experts finally solved the disturbing mystery behind the disappearance of Malaysia flight MH370 in 2014. The leading air safety experts involved in the investigation say the fate of the plane was a meticulously planned murder/suicide by its captain, Zaharie Amad Shah. The Malaysia Airlines Boeing 777 jet went missing March 8, 2014, with 239 people on board.
According to the analysis of satellite data, the airline ran out of fuel and crashed in the India Ocean just west of Australia. The crash site was thousands of miles from its scheduled destination in Beijing, China. Even after an extensive search, the plane could not be found. Eventually, debris from the flight washed up on the Indian Ocean beaches. The seabed search for the missing airliner was the largest underwater search in history. The search was finally officially called off by the Australian Transport Safety Bureau (ATSB) almost three years later in January of 2017
Martin Dolan, the leader of the seabed search, recently gave an interview on a special edition of the 60 Minutes Australia program. "This was planned," he said. "This was deliberate, and it was done over an extended period of time." The captain behind the mass murder was a highly respected veteran of the skies named Zaharie Ahmad Shah, 53. He was accompanied by an inexperienced first officer, Fariq Abdul Hamid. Hamid was on his first Boeing 777 mission with a training captain accompanying him.
