A British aviation expert suggests that Malaysia Airlines Flight MH370 met a tragic fate orchestrated by its pilot, who allegedly executed a mass-murder-suicide plan.

Simon Hardy, a British pilot who participated in the official search for the vanished Boeing 777, shared his insights regarding the mysterious disappearance of the aircraft, which occurred on March 8, 2014, over the South China Sea.

Despite extensive efforts, the plane, carrying 239 passengers and crew members en route from Kuala Lumpur to Beijing, was never located.

Hardy, enlisted by the Australian Transport Safety Bureau in 2015 to aid in the search, utilized advanced flight simulators to narrow down the potential whereabouts of the missing jet.

According to reports, Hardy speculated that the pilot, Capt. Zaharie Ahmad Shah, intended to end the flight in a remote ocean trench known as the Geelvinck Fracture Zone, situated beneath the southern Indian Ocean.

This hypothesis suggested a deliberate act of burying the aircraft in an area prone to seismic activity, according to The Sun.

Although Hardy's theory lacked definitive evidence and the search operation concluded in 2017 without confirmation, he remains steadfast in his belief.

He pointed to various clues, such as requests for additional fuel and oxygen specifically for the cockpit, as well as anomalous satellite signals. These anomalies, dubbed "handshakes," hinted at a calculated plan to prolong the flight going unnoticed, rendering the passengers and crew incapacitated before the final descent.

The absence of significant wreckage further fueled suspicions of a deliberate act, with only a few fragments of the aircraft ever recovered.

Notably, a flaperon discovered on the island of Reunion, approximately 425 miles west of Madagascar, provided vital insights. French experts analyzing the component noted indications suggesting it had been deployed in a downward position, implying deliberate manipulation by someone with aviation expertise.

Despite lingering questions and limited tangible evidence, Hardy's assessment aligns with the findings of the initial investigation, reinforcing a tragic possible narrative surrounding the fate of Flight MH370.
