MH370 precise coordinates given by pilot who says he ‘knows’ where wreckage is
A former pilot says he is so confident he knows where the wreckage of MH370 he is willing to bet his house on it.
Byron Bailey says he is confident he knows the exact co-ordinates where the plane went down on March 8, 2014 and doesn't understand why people aren't looking there.
Mr Bailey, who has more than 50 years of experience, says the plane will be found south of the current search area at: latitude 39’10 S, 88’18E.
Appearing in a Sky News documentary, which has aired in Australia, MH370: The Untold Story, he said captain Zaharie Shah glided the plane as far as possible and landed it on the water outside the search zone.
He says the plane did not do a dramatic nose dive into the ocean.
In the programme he said: "I’m sure the captain was trying to ditch the aircraft in as far south, remote location as possible, and leave as little wreckage as possible that would sink.
“If I’m wrong then it probably means the aircraft has been taken by aliens or is sitting in a hangar somewhere in Kazakhstan."
He added: "I’m so sure. I’d bet my house on it. As far as I’m concerned it’s game over, we know where it is, we’ve always known where it is.”
The Australian Transport Safety Bureau (ATSB) search was based on the assumption the plane ended as a ghost flight, or a death dive, meaning the pilot was also dead when the aircraft ran out of fuel at 40,000 feet.
Martin Dolan, former head of the ATSB, told the documentary: "I think the evidence is less clear now, given that we have managed to eliminate most of the area associated with that scenario
"That means there’s an increasing likelihood there was someone at the controls at the end of the flight.”
He added: “I don’t disagree with any of the basic assumptions Byron has.”
Mirror Online earlier reported that Australia's ex-prime minister claimed the Malaysian government secretly believed "very early on" the MH370 mystery was a mass murder-suicide orchestrated by the captain.
Malaysia's official report said there was no evidence captain Zaharie had carried out a murder-suicide, but it was branded a cover-up and, in a new interview, Tony Abbott claims the "highest levels" of the Southeast Asian country's government believed that theory early on.
Mr Abbott, who was Australia's prime minister at the time, told Sky News: “My understanding, my very clear understanding, from the very top levels of the Malaysian Government is that from very, very early on here they thought it was a murder suicide by the pilot.
“I’m not going to say who said what to whom, but let me reiterate – I want to be absolutely crystal clear – it was understood at the highest levels that this was almost certainly murder-suicide by the pilot.
"A mass murder-suicide by the pilot.”
There was a suspicion that the pilot – who flew a similar path on his flight simulator at home – was clinically depressed.
His voice was heard in the final radio communication less than two minutes before the plane began to divert from its flight path.
He said: “Good night. Malaysian three-seven-zero.”
The electrical system was deliberately turned off, making the plane impossible to track by satellite.
