Missing Malaysia Airplane Investigation Makes Disturbing Discovery (VIDEO)

malaysian airlines cnnThe search for the missing Malaysia Airlines jet continues. The latest puts new suspicion on the pilot, Captain Zaharie Ahmad Shah: Investigators say data had been deleted from his flight simulator. It appears that the files were deleted on February 3, a month before the plane went missing, March 8. Could these files hold the key to what happened to Flight 370?

Meanwhile, searchers are looking farther south, over the Indian Ocean. This is a vast area with no islands, no major flight patterns or shipping routes. Searchers think this is the most likely area where they may find the plane, but they are also looking in Asia.

In a press conference, investigators said they haven't found anything of significance in their background checks of the passengers so far. They do say Malaysia received radar data from other countries but cannot reveal anything about that yet. And they said claims that the plane was sighted by people in the Maldives were untrue.

Family members of the victims stormed the press conference demanding answers from the Malaysian government. It was an emotional confrontation. Meanwhile, there are 17 days left to recover the black box before its battery is expected to die.

Forensics experts are trying to recover the lost flight simulator files. But what if the answer is a lot more simple than we think? Yesterday, another theory went viral. Maybe there was an electrical fire in the cockpit. Captain Shah turned around so he could land the plane back in Malaysia ... but he just didn't have enough time to make it back.

Do you think it's suspicious that files had been deleted from Captain Shah's flight simulator?

They know what happened. I'm not much into conspiracy theories and usually balk at them but someone knows what actually happened. All this "mystery" is to placate the public.

I agree, someone knows something. In this day and age with all the spy technology and watching going on it's impossible for a modern jet to just disappear.

My guess is someone doesn't want to give up the information because it would mean having to explain how they know and admitting to doing something they shouldn't be doing.

Why is the USA wasting time and money looking for this airplane?? I think we have better things to be spending our tax dollars on.

There were some americans on the plane. Maybe thats why they are "wasting" their time. Smh hell atleast they are trying to help.

seeluxe, maybe if it was one of your family members missing, you'd consider it something worth spending our tax dollars on. i am a tax paying citizen, and i fully support searching for this plane. i'm going to say this the nicest way i can think of....shut up.

Seelux, Americans were on the plane including a big corporate person from IBM. Wouldn't you want help finding your family?

I think people delete things off their computers all the time. Screaming oh no a deleted file to the public before recovering it is just spreading panic. I do hope we find it before the black box is useless

Yes. Another thing is airplane flew four 4 hours after disappeared. They could have traveled as far as southeastern Iran to pakastan. When airplanes are in sky did you know airplanes can spoof their codes. ?How? All airplanes have codes all it takes for airplane to make contact like this is a smaller airplane like a jet to fly next to it and switch codes. It confuses towers and it has been done in the pasts. It would not surprise me at all with trouble we our having g in russia. Just recently isereal had a September 11 style attack from china. They call it chinas September 11th. You notice a lot stuff changed after Snowden ran to Putin for protection. Snow den may have dumped a mother ship of secrets. That upset the balance of lies.
