Malaysian Airlines Flight MH 370 on Flight Radar Playback

Hello Capt Lim,

I have just discovered your website and wondered what your thoughts are on the missing Malaysian flight.

Sheri Irvine

Hi Sheri,

I am sorry I have not said anything about this mystery since the plane went missing on 7.3.14. I have received numerous requests similar to yours and have refused to speculate.

The only thing I can say is that I know the captain of the flight and did some of his training as well years back. My personal feeling is that he was a dedicated and good pilot. So one of the speculations about his possible involvement in the accident was generally unpleasant to the pilot community here.

Additionally, I have even flown that same plane (9M-MRO) from Rome to Kuala Lumpur a month before I retired from that airline.

In the Air France AF447 crash, although the automated messages immediately reported 6 failures and 19 warnings, there were still the speculations that the crash was due to lightning strikes.

When the black box was finally recovered about two years later, it was revealed that human factors were the main contributory cause.

From the cockpit voice recorder in the black box, the investigators were able to hear all the exact conversations that transpired and in addition, all the flight data were also retrieved prior to the accident.

My view is that we should leave the experts to handle the investigation and hope that the black box would be found soon.

In the meantime, our thoughts and prayers are with the crew and passengers of MH 370.


Pray For MH370 / Tribute to MH370

Why was declared a fatal accident while there is a ditching procedure and MH370 passengers could be alive? There is NO DEBRIES and NOT a BODY. to prove DEATH.
