A Malaysian government official has stated that investigators have concluded that one of the pilots, or someone else with flying experience, hijacked the missing Malaysia Airlines jet. There has been no evidence of the whereabouts of Malaysia Airlines Flight 370 to date.
From the Associated Press:
No motive has been established and no demands have been made known, and it is not yet clear where the plane was taken, said the official, who spoke on condition of anonymity because he was not authorized to brief the media. The official said that hijacking was no longer a theory.
He said evidence that led to the conclusion were signs that the plane’s communications were switched off deliberately, data about the flight path and indications the plane was steered in a way to avoid detection by radar.
Earlier, an American official told The Associated Press that investigators are examining the possibility of “human intervention” in the plane’s disappearance, adding it may have been “an act of piracy.”
