Malaysia Airlines Flight 370
DISCUSSION - PLANE DEPRESSURIZED FROM COCKPIT, FLOWN BETWEEN RADAR
(This video starts out a little slow - apologies) The captain of Flight 370 was almost certainly distraught over family issues - this has been reported very recently (and also from the beginning) from sources in Malaysia and Australia. Additionally, the opposition leader in Malaysia, who was a relative and running for president, was found guilty of a trumped-up charge, and was kept from running for president. The captain, who had three loves in life, found his family and his politics devastated on the same afternoon. He almost certainly decided to take out the third on his own. By performing what's known as a 'pressurization dump' he depressurized the cabin from the cockpit, flew it to 45,000 feet to make sure the passengers and co-pilot were incapacitated (dead). He turned off the transponder(s), and flew the plane through a radar-less corridor out to sea, and after a seven-hour final flight, crashed into the ocean. It's time we talked about this 'pressurization dump' (as its known in the business) and that this was the first in a series of totally plausible steps taken to take the plane and then take it down, without anyone knowing it was happening, and wondering how and why afterward. The entire scenario is a brilliantly performed plan by an emotionally traumatized captain - this needs to be the conversation now. We need to understand it to get beyond it. I hope CNN will take advantage of the opportunity to get 'out front' on this explanation as to how it happened. Thanks for watching, please comment, and feel free to use the video or contact me.
