A French expert claims that the Malaysia Airlines plane, which disappeared in 2014 with 239 passengers on board in the southern Indian Ocean, was deliberately crashed in an unsearchable location.
Gillie de Hares, a former air traffic control employee in the French Air Force, said in an interview with the British newspaper The Sun that she has evidence to prove that the disappearance of the Malaysia Airlines flight was not accidental.
Since March 8, 2014, when the flight from Kuala Lumpur to Beijing disappeared from the radar screen, there have been conflicting hypotheses about its fate, but none of them have been able to help find the plane.
This flight, the pilot of which was Zahari Ahmadshah, disappeared from air radars and created the biggest mystery of the aviation world.
In the official account of the disappearance of the plane, it is stated that the Boeing-777 plane returned to the airport less than an hour before landing at its destination in the Indian Ocean.
Some believe that the plane was probably hijacked, but others claim that the plane was shot down by the US Air Force or that the plane was in flight when it crashed.
But Gilley believes the pilot was making a controlled emergency landing in the ocean.
According to Gilley’s theory, the pilot was able to turn on the plane’s backup propulsion system in the last moments, when both engines stopped due to running out of fuel, to regain control of the plane. This issue explains why the plane’s communication system suddenly turned on and tried to connect to the Inmarsat satellite system.
He said the pilot then landed the plane in a controlled glide, but things did not go according to the pilot’s plan and the water caused the plane to split into two or three parts.
Gilley believes the slide was a deliberate attempt to fill the wreckage with as little debris as possible.
He added: The person who controlled the plane may not have wanted someone to find the plane in the future and disappear without any trace.
Asked about a possible motive for the crash, he said it was still unclear, but noted that the pilot had not undergone a medical examination for four years before the crash – something pilots must undergo annually before being allowed to fly again.
The daughter of the MH370 pilot said her father was in emotional turmoil due to his impending separation from his wife, was distracted and suffered from depression in the months leading up to the crash.
Gilly says the wreckage is likely on the ocean floor in an area called the Seventh Arc, which has already been searched.
