A Simple Explanation for Malaysia Air flight was electrical fire and crew was overcome

Wired has a simple explanation for flight MH370

There has been a lot of speculation about Malaysia Airlines Flight 370. Terrorism, hijacking, meteors. I cannot believe the analysis on CNN; it’s almost disturbing. I tend to look for a simpler explanation, and I find it with the 13,000-foot runway at Pulau Langkawi.

The pilot was taking a direct route to Palau Langkawi, a 13,000-foot airstrip with an approach over water and no obstacles. The captain did not turn back to Kuala Lampur because he knew he had 8,000-foot ridges to cross. He knew the terrain was friendlier toward Langkawi, which also was closer.

Take a look at this airport on Google Earth. The pilot did all the right things. He was confronted by some major event onboard that made him make an immediate turn to the closest, safest airport.

The loss of transponders and communications makes perfect sense in a fire.

Capt. Zaharie Ahmad Shah was a hero struggling with an impossible situation trying to get that plane to Langkawi. There is no doubt in my mind. That’s the reason for the turn and direct route.

Get on Google Earth and type in Pulau Langkawi and then look at it in relation to the radar track heading. Two plus two equals four. For me, that is the simple explanation why it turned and headed in that direction. Smart pilot. He just didn’t have the time.

Nextbigfuture information from someone familiar with the Boeing 777. The Boeing 777 does not fly straight without a pilot or autopilot. So if the crew were overcome and then the autopilot failed, the plane would stop flying straight and the veer off and crash. So there is still a large area to be searched along the general flight path.

Modern commercial jets are less stable in flight in order to maximum fuel efficiency.

Communications could have been shorted out which would have prevented communicating the emergency
