Malaysia: Investigators conclude flight hijacked
Updated: 03/14/2014 11:28 pm CDT


By EILEEN NG and JOAN LOWY Associated Press

KUALA LUMPUR, Malaysia (AP) - Investigators have concluded that one or more people with significant flying experience hijacked the missing Malaysia Airlines jet, switched off communication devices and steered it off-course, a Malaysian government official involved in the investigation said Saturday.

No motive has been established and no demands have been made known, and it is not yet clear where the plane was taken, said the official, who spoke on condition of anonymity because he was not authorized to brief the media. The official said that hijacking was no longer a theory.

"It is conclusive," he said.

He said evidence that led to the conclusion were signs that the plane's communications were switched off deliberately, data about the flight path and indications the plane was steered in a way to avoid detection by radar.

The Boeing 777's communication with the ground was severed just under one hour into a flight March 8 from Kuala Lumpur to Beijing. Malaysian officials previously have said radar data suggest it may have turned back toward and crossed over the Malaysian peninsula after setting out on a northeastern path toward the Chinese capital.

Earlier, an American official told The Associated Press that investigators are examining the possibility of "human intervention" in the plane's disappearance, adding it may have been "an act of piracy."

While other theories are still being examined, the U.S. official said key evidence suggesting human intervention is that contact with the Boeing 777's transponder stopped about a dozen minutes before a messaging system on the jet quit. Such a gap would be unlikely in the case of an in-flight catastrophe.

The Malaysian official said only a skilled aviator could navigate the plane the way it was flown after its last confirmed location over the South China Sea. The official said it had been established with a "more than 50 percent" degree of certainty that military radar had picked up the missing plane after it dropped off civilian radar.

Why anyone would want to do this is unclear. Malaysian authorities and others will be urgently investigating the backgrounds of the two pilots and 10 crew members, as well the 227 passengers on board.

Some experts have said that pilot suicide may be the most likely explanation for the disappearance, as was suspected in a SilkAir crash during a flight from Singapore to Jakarta in 1997 and an EgyptAir flight in 1999.

A massive international search effort began initially in the South China Sea where the plane's transponders stopped transmitting. It has since been expanded onto the other side of the Malay peninsula up into the Andaman Sea and into the Indian Ocean.

The plane had enough fuel to fly for at least five hours after its last know location, meaning a vast swath of South and Southeast Asia would be within its reach. Investigators are analyzing radar and satellite data from around the region to try and pinpoint its final location, something that will be vital to hopes of finding the plane, and answering the mystery of what happened to it.

Skilled pilots? So basically it could be anywhere. The only restriction is fuel.

Wouldn't it be crazy if the Hijackers had the intentions of landing the plane in some remote area but the passengers (inspired by Flight 93) took the plane down for fear of running it into a building or city?


This is cray man

i read somewhere that the fo had a history of allowing passengers to go into the cockpit as a friendly gesture. i don't understand that sh*t but that had to be the case. plus their laws must be different than the faa laws cause under absolutely no circumstance what so ever do we allow passengers to enter the cockit after the door is closed on the ground. 

we gotta guard the door with our life really. if their laws are the same as ours, one of the pilots is behind this sh*t.

there are other scenario for someone to enter the cockpit. 

again, if their laws are the same as ours no one gets in except for a an fa when one of the pilots has to go to the restroom. so somebody could have known that and set it up. but then again, there are even precautions we take for a potential situation like that. either the pilot or one of the fas could've be in cahoots with the bad guys.

I wonder why no one was able to get a text, email or phone call out during or after the hijacking? Was the plane in such a remote area no signal could be found?
