Missing Malaysian flight MH370: New book co-written by commercial pilot claims disappearance was no accident
Ewan Wilson penned ‘Good Night Malaysia 370: The Truth Behind the Loss of Flight 370’ with journalist Geoff Taylor
A commercial pilot has co-written a book claiming that the disappearance of flight MH370 was “deliberate” and “calculated”.
Ewan Wilson penned ‘Good Night Malaysia 370: The Truth Behind the Loss of Flight 370’ with New Zealand reporter Geoff Taylor.
In it, the pair claim the Malaysian Airlines flight ended in the Indian Ocean – and that a conclusion of foul play can be reached via a process of elimination.
They also conducted interviews with relatives of MH370 pilot Zaharie Ahmad Shah as part of their investigation.
Wilson told stuff.co.nz: "For the first time we present a detailed analysis of the flight, the incredible route it took, and who we believe was in charge of the aircraft as it plunged into the Indian Ocean.
"The disappearance of Malaysia Airlines Flight 370 captured the world's attention and shocked everyone – [the outcome] is gut-wrenching."
Taylor added: "What happened to MH370 was no accident. It was deliberate and it was calculated and it should never have been allowed to happen."
Taylor believes that authorities owe is to the 239 aboard the Boeing-777 to come out with “the truth”.
"For the sake of the relatives of those on the flight the truth needs to be out there,” he said.
"We visited the departure lounge where families sat full of excitement and anticipation waiting for their boarding call. Surely they deserve better than a cover-up?”
As the search for the aircraft – which disappeared on March 8 travelling from Kuala Lumpur to Beijing – drags on, the Australian government could spend AUS$90million (£50million) on the search come July 2015.
Investigators are now concentrating on its next area of interest – 21,600sq miles of seabed up to four miles deep.
Meanwhile, seven families have received an initial compensation payment of $50,000 (£30,000).
