All but one of the 239 people on Malaysia Airlines crashed flight 370 were presumably unconscious – incapable of the Boeing 777's abrupt decompression – and had no idea they were on an hour-long, meandering pathway to their deaths.
On that road, a group of aviation experts said on Sunday that it was a short but cumbersome detour near Penang, Malaysia, the hometown of Captain Zaharie Ahmad Shah.
On two occasions, whoever had control of the plane ̵
The experts believe Zaharie, the plane's pilot, took one last look.
That's the deterrent theory that analysts suggest
They suspect that the vanishing and apparent crash of the plane in 2014 was a 53-year-old Zaharie's suicide – and an intentional act of mass murder. 19659007] But first, the exper said, they think Zaharie had depressurized the plane and pushed someone aboard who was not wearing an oxygen mask. That would explain the silence that triggered the plane as it turned away from the course: no Mayday from the radio, no last farewell news, no attempted distress calls that could not be connected.
That would also explain who had time to maneuver the plane to its final location.
The wreck was not found, although hundreds of millions of dollars went into the four-year search. The secret of what happened in the last moments of the unfortunate flight – and the motive behind it – probably died with its passengers and pilots.
But the "60 Minutes" team – which included aviation specialists, the former Australian The head of the Transport Safety Bureau responsible for investigating the crash of MH370, and an oceanographer – are the most likely theory.  "The most debated thing is that the pilot has switched off the transponder. He has depressurized the plane, which would disable the passengers," said Larry Vance, a seasoned aviation researcher from Canada. "He killed himself, but unfortunately he killed everyone else on board, and he did it on purpose."
Zahari's alleged suicide could explain a curiosity about the last flight path of the plane: that unexpected turn to the left.
"Captain Zaharie dived his wing to see Penang, his hometown," Simon Hardy, a pilot and instructor of the Boeing 777, said on "60 Minutes."
"If you look very closely, you can see that it's actually a left turn, then a long turn to the right, and then [he does] another left turn, so I've been thinking for a long time what that might be could, what is the technical reason and after two months, three months, I finally got the answer: Someone looked out the window. "
" It could be a long emotional farewell, "added Hardy. "Or a short emotional farewell to his hometown."  Flight 370 disappeared on March 8, 2014, shortly after leaving Kuala Lumpur, with 239 people believed to be in Beijing.
crashed in the far southern Indian Ocean.
The governments of Malaysia, China and Australia canceled the official search in January 2017. The Australian Transport Safety Bureau's final report said the authorities were investigating the reasons for the disappearance of the aircraft or the location of its wreck.
But the "60-minute" experts tried to answer one of the biggest questions around the air: How could a modern plane tracked by radar and satellite just disappear?
Because, they say, Zaharie wanted it. And the experienced pilot, who had nearly 20,000 hours of flight experience and built a flight simulator in his house, knew exactly how to do it.
For example, he flew at a point near the border of Malaysia and Thailand, criss-crossing the airspace of both, Hardy said. But both countries probably did not see the plane as a threat because it was at the edge of its airspace.
"The two air traffic controllers do not care about this mysterious plane, because it's gone, it's not in our room anymore," said Hardy. "If you gave me this operation and tried to make a 777 disappear, I would do the same and as far as I'm concerned, it's very accurate flying and it has done its job."
Still, like News .com.au wrote, the hypotheses of the experts are just theories – and not entirely new.
Zaharie and copilot Fariq Abdul Hamid were prime suspects in the disappearance of the aircraft from the beginning. There were rumors that Zahar's marriage ended and he mowed down the plane after learning that his wife was leaving, the news said.
Another theory was that he abducted the plane in protest of the imprisonment of Anwar Ibrahim then was the opposition leader in Malaysia.
A group called the Chinese Martyrs Brigade took responsibility for the decline, although skeptical officials called it a hoax.
Two men on the plane were flying with false passports, but one was apparently an asylum-seeker and had no terrorist connections.
Of course, the wreck could give some insights into what caused the plane to crash, and the crews were still looking for it later this year.

Oliver Plunkett, CEO of Ocean Infinity, said the company's technology had performed "exceptionally well" and "collected significant amounts of high-quality data".
