Computer sent Malaysia Airline ML370 off original flight path

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.

    Remember when US Airways flight 1549 landed in the Hudson River? There was no wreckage, or any component of the plane that left the aircraft upon landing. If there was certainly someone inside the cockpit who had the skills to turn off tracking devices, before changing the aircraft’s flight path and flying (suspectedly) to the most remote location in the world. If this person was so hell bent on not raising a single warning, then they must have also intended to land the plane without a trace. Landing on the water in controlled flight, just like US Airways flight 1549. Instead this time, none of the passengers exit the aircraft, but left to perish in this murder suicide. This person who took control also knew that without any trace of wreckage, the plane would all but be impossible to find in water after the black box transmitter stopped, after 30 days. This was so well planned it must have been one of the pilots or someone on board with commercial flight experience. I can’t help but keep returning to one of the pilots.
