Malaysia Flight ML370 was sent off it’s original flight path due to a computer that was programmed by someone in the cockpit. The New York Times broke this latest nugget a few minutes ago. This again shows whatever happened with the plane wasn’t a mechanical failure, but a well planned out ‘attack’ by either the crew or some passengers. In order to have programmed the computer to sent Malaysia Flight ML370 off it’s original flight path, someone had to have been very knowledgeable about the plane’s computer system.

The first turn to the west that diverted the missing Malaysia Airlines plane from its planned flight path from Kuala Lumpur to Beijing was carried out through a computer system that was most likely programmed by someone in the plane’s cockpit who was knowledgeable about airplane systems, according to senior American officials.
Instead of manually operating the plane’s controls, whoever altered Flight 370’s path typed seven or eight keystrokes into a computer on a knee-high pedestal between the captain and the first officer, according to officials. The Flight Management System, as the computer is known, directs the plane from point to point specified in the flight plan submitted before each flight. It is not clear whether the plane’s path was reprogrammed before or after it took off.
