The boss of a major airline believes missing flight MH370 may not have crashed in the Indian Ocean, and that probably control was taken of that airplane.
In an Interview with German magazine Der Spiegel, Emirates Airlines head Tim Clark has stated he is “totally dissatisfied” with results of the investigation so far and that the mystery of vanishing airplane raises a “degree of suspicion”.
He said: “There hasn’t been one overwater incident in the history of civil aviation — apart from Amelia Earhart in 1939 — that has not been at least 5 or 10 percent trackable. But MH 370 has simply disappeared. For me, that raises a degree of suspicion. I’m totally dissatisfied with what has been coming out of all of this.”
The Malaysia Airlines plane disappeared more than six months ago as it travelled from Kuala Lumpur to Beijing.
A large-scale search operation is currently underway, but the plane nor the 239 people on board have been found.
At the request of the Malaysian Government, Australia is leading the search for missing Malaysia Airlines Flight MH370. All the available data indicates the aircraft entered the sea close to a long but narrow arc of the southern Indian Ocean.
However, Emirates boss believes that all the “facts” of this particular incident must be challenged and examined with full transparency. “Every single second of that flight needs to be examined up until it, theoretically, ended up in the Indian Ocean — for which they still haven’t found a trace, not even a seat cushion”, he said.
He also mentioned that in previous water incidents, where the aircraft has gone down, there has always been something. “We have not seen a single thing that suggests categorically that this aircraft is where they say it is, apart from this so-called electronic satellite “handshake,” which I question as well,” Clark Added.
