MH370 pilot was in control 'until the end'

Investigators looking in to the fate of the doomed airliner have learned more about the plane's final hours.
Exactly what happened to Malaysia Airlines Flight 370 after it took off from Kuala Lumpur International Airport on March 8, 2014 still remains one of the most enduring mysteries in aviation history.

Despite extensive investigations, no conclusion explanation for its disappearance has been found.

Five years on, France is now the only country still conducting a judicial inquiry in to the disaster after Malaysian authorities gave up the search having failed to find the plane's wreckage.

The latest findings, which are based on an analysis of a "considerable amount" of Boeing flight data, suggest that the pilot of MH370 had been in control of the plane "until the end" because some of the abnormal turns made by the aircraft could only have been achieved manually.

This implies that the pilot may have doomed the plane and all of its passengers deliberately.

"There is a strong suspicion among investigators in the aviation and intelligence communities that he was clinically depressed," wrote aviation specialist William Langewiesche.

Unless the wreckage can be found however, it's a theory that will likely be difficult to prove.

All the data is public or not ? This plane crash is in a cloud of bull**** from the beginning... We have seen story saying that the Malaysia airline plane shutdowned in Ukraine was the mh370 that US stole and crashed there... also cockpit fire and now it's suicide.

Maybe after the adrenalin of suicidal intention he didn't have the nerve in the end and had to let the plane kill him. Kind of a suicide by cop thing. I would not have wished to be him at any point of that decision he made   If this was a suicide, I wonder if he ever was sorry for taking so many with him.

It does not seem like a simple tragic suicide, it's hard to imagine that the actions taken during the 5/6 hour flight could have happened without some assistance for the pilot from a third party.  An awful lot of effort seems to have gone into reaching the Indian Ocean, taking big risks to get there, and for no apparent reason.

It is bizarre, for sure.  Maybe it was a hijack gone wrong for that matter. Almost any scenario you come up with, it raises as many questions as the next.

"... the pilot of MH370 had been in control of the plane "until the end" because some of the abnormal turns made by the aircraft could only have been achieved manually.

Nooooooooooooooooo.  Bunch of freakball liars. they have no way of knowing who was at the controls. Meanwhile the innocent pilot's family has to live with this for many generations down the road.

I think that speculation about the tragedy doesn't serve much purpose. We all have considered what could have happened according to the information that has been released. The only chance this will ever be cleared up is if the plane is found, and depending upon how long that takes it also may not help solve this mystery. This is a very sad event

I think that a suicidal person is usually depressed. They wouldn't find it fun to do loops. For a depressed person, everything is meaningless.

Doing looping is not meaningless indeed ! You are probably right !

Just word for thought... Does anyone actually believe that the military in *any* country this craft went through could not see MH370 at any time - and I include Malaysia itself? If you say "yes" you would be quite wrong. Military has to use primary radar to see crafts that may be military in nature and armed to do damage. Hence, secondary radar, which depends on signals from the craft itself, is useless to the military. Primary radar ONLY.  And come to find out, yes, the military in Malaysia *did* have a track on the craft as did their neighbor, Thailand. Thailand claims they never initially d... [More]
