Malaysian news reported MH370 Captain Zaharie Shah’s homemade flight simulator had five runways programmed into the system.
The runways included:
** Three airports in India and Sri Lanka
** One airport in Maldives
** One US military base in Diego Garcia
A Malaysian newspaper is reporting that investigations into the flight simulator, seized from the home of one of MH370’s missing pilots, included software for five practice runways around the Indian Ocean, where the desperate search for the plane is continuing.
The Berita Harian is reporting that five runways were programmed into Captain Zaharie Shah’s homemade flight simulator that was taken by police for analysis last Saturday.
The simulator was reassembled at the federal police headquarters in Bukit Aman, where experts conducted the checks.
“Among the software we checked so far is the Male International Airport in Maldives, three airports in India and Sri Lanka, and one belonging to the US military base in Diego Garcia. All have a runway length of 1,000 metres,” a source told the Malay daily.
After 10 days of searching for the missing Malaysia Airlines flight MH370, investigators have now conducting extensive background checks on the 239 people on board the plane, including the pilots, crew and passengers.
The Malaysian pilot on missing flight MH370 was reportedly a political fanatic who attended the trial of the country’s opposition leader hours before the flight.
