Another Theory in Malaysia Airline Disappearance
Buffalo, NY (WBEN) Another day, another theory in the disappearance of Malaysia Airlines flight 370. This one may involve political retaliation.
"There's no doubt the captain commandeered the plane and took it to a remote runway location where there is little communication such as cell towers," says Alan "Ace" Abbott, a former fighter jet pilot who also flew 727s for 22 years, and currently with www.therogueaviator.com. "He was politically active and had ties to the opposition party leader, and was in the courtroom when the leader was sentenced to five years in prison and eyewitnesses say he was in a rage. There's some premise the commandeering of the plane was retribution toward the Malaysian government."
Abbott says there may be another reason why the pilot did what he did. "There was something in the cargo hold the pilot knew about. It may have been some type of nuclear or fissionable material that somebody else wanted for bad reasons," notes Abbott. "That could have been headed for Beijing and the pilot knew about it and took the plane so (the material) could possibly not get there."
As for the passengers, Abbott is convinced the plane landed safely. "There's a possibility the passengers may be hostages, but the Hari indicated the pilot is a person with a very good heart, so based on his personality profile, it would be unlikely he would engage in mass murder with the passengers," believes Abbott.
