Missing Malaysia Airlines Flight 370: Data Was Deleted From Flight Simulator of Pilot Zaharie Ahmad Shah
It is looking more and more like a planned event by the pilot of missing Malaysia Airlines Flight 370 …
Authorities in the investigation into the Malaysia Airlines Flight 370 are saying that some data files from the flight simulator taken from the home of pilot Zaharie Ahmad Shah. The flight simulator was taken from pilot Zaharie Ahmad Shah’s home over the weekend as part of police investigation. How on Earth are we just learning about this now? What files were deleted from this pilot’s flight simulator, maybe how to fly at low levels across the ocean to avoid radar and land on an undisclosed island?
What good reason would one have to delete data files? Obviously a good forensic computer individual should be able to retrieve such data. Maybe this will hold the important clues as to where this missing Malaysia plane is or at least the general direction it flew to. Officials have determined that a deliberate action was to blame for the disappearance of Flight 370 as the police escalate their investigations of Capt. Zaharie, 52 years old, and his 26-year-old co-pilot, Fariq Abdul Hamid.
Malaysian investigators have found that some data from a flight simulator taken from the home of the missing Malaysia Airlines Flight 370′s pilot was deleted.
“Some data has been deleted from the simulator. Forensic efforts are on to retrieve the data,” Hishammuddin Hussein, Malaysia’s acting transport minister told reporters on Wednesday.
