    Malaysia Airlines Flight 370

    MH 370

    I am an aviation/aircraft expert with 30 years in the industry.

    The current theories are wrong on MAS flt 370. I believe the aircraft suffered an onboard fire incapacitating the pilots. When fire hits all efforts are on fighting the fire. Electrical systems are shut down to isolate the fire. To clear smoke the outflow valve is opened. A final ditch effort to extinguish the fire can be complete de-pressurization of the aircraft so as to starve the fire of oxygen. At some point the pilots were incapacitated or died fighting the fire and the airplane continued in flight with the autopilot off which would account for the pitch occilations. The airplane would have finally run out of fuel and crashed. The passengers presumably suffered a similar fate as the pilots either overcome by smoke or died from lack of oxygen.

    Please call me and I can go through my hypothesis in greater detail.

    Kind regards,
