    Malaysia Airlines Flight 370 search grows as pilots face increased scrutiny

    Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia (CNN) -- Where do you even begin to look, when the search area covers vast swaths of land and water, stretching thousands of miles, from Kazakhstan to the Indian Ocean?

    That's the question for Malaysian officials and authorities from 24 other nations as people search for a ninth day, trying to find Malaysia Airlines Flight 370 and the 239 people on board.

    As the search area grows bigger, authorities are also increasing their scrutiny of the pilots, searching their homes in the quest for clues. That included a flight simulator from the captain's home.

    Pilot Spoke to Air Controllers After Shutoff of Data System

    SEPANG, Malaysia — A signaling system was disabled on the missing Malaysia Airlines jet before a pilot spoke to air traffic control without mentioning trouble, a senior Malaysian official said on Sunday, reinforcing theories that one of the pilots may have been involved in diverting the plane and adding urgency to the investigation of their pasts and possible motivations.

    Radar Suggests Jet Shifted Path More Than Once

    SEPANG, Malaysia — Malaysia Airlines Flight 370 experienced significant changes in altitude after it lost contact with ground control, and altered its course more than once as if still under the command of a pilot, American officials and others familiar with the investigation said Friday.

    Investigators believe Malaysia Airlines co-pilot spoke last words from missing plane

    Investigators said Monday that they believe that the co-pilot of vanished Malaysia Airlines Flight 370 gave the final communication heard by air traffic controllers shortly before the plane disappeared from civilian radar screens.

    Malaysia Airlines CEO Ahmad Jauhari Yahya said at a news conference Monday that initial investigations indicate that co-pilot is the one who calmly said, "All right, good night." Authorities had said Sunday that the words were heard around 1:30 a.m. local time, nearly a half hour after the data recorder was turned off and 10 minutes after the transponder was deactivated.

    Malaysia Backtracks on When Airliner’s Communications Were Disabled

    SEPANG, Malaysia — As the search for Malaysia Airlines Flight 370 stretched into a 10th day, the Malaysian authorities on Monday identified the plane’s first officer as the last person in the cockpit to speak to ground control. But the government added to the confusion about what happened during those key minutes by withdrawing its assertion that the radio signoff had come after a crucial communications system was disabled

    The final words spoken from the cockpit of the missing Malaysia Airlines flight came from the co-pilot, not the captain, officials revealed.

    It had been reported that a casually spoken 'all right, good night' came from Captain Zaharie Ahmad Shah, but Malaysian officials disclosed that it was actually said by 27-year-old Fariq Abdul Hamid, described by friends as mild-mannered and with a bright future ahead of him.

    Missing Malaysia Airlines MAS Flight MH370 FB Page

    In full: Malaysia Airlines flight MH370 passenger list

    MH370 picture exclusive: Pilot wears anti-government slogan t-shirt amid fears he hijacked missing jet 3/16/14
    Captain Zaharie Ahmad Shah was a fervent supporter of his country's opposition leader who was jailed for homosexuality - illegal in Malaysia - only hours before flight MH370 vanished with 239 passengers and crew on board, the Sunday Mirror can reveal

    Malaysia Backtracks on When Airliner’s Communications Were Disabled Ahmad Jauhari Yahya, the chief executive of Malaysia Airlines, clarified at a news conference early Monday evening that the communications system, known as an Aircraft Communications Addressing and Reporting System, had worked normally at 1:07 but then failed to send its next regularly scheduled update at 1:37 a.m.

    This is a timeline of events based on the information given at a media briefing earlier today.

    00:41am: Malaysia Airlines flight MH370 takes off from Kuala Lumpur

    01:07am: Final signal from its ACARS system was sent

    01:19am: Co-pilot Fariq Abdul Hamid said: "All right, good night" to air traffic control

    01:21am: Transponder is turned off

    01:30am: Malaysian civil aviation control loses contact with the plane

    01:37am: ACARS appears to be turned off

    02:15am: Plane is spotted near the Andaman Islands on a military radar

    08:11am: Final satellite communication broadens search to two massive arcs stretching for thousands of miles into the Indian Ocean and across vast parts of Asia

    Plane may have flown up to another hour after its last satellite transmission.

    [​IMG]

    Want to add that even though the plane could land; where would it get fuel to refuel unless it was done in advance?

    Mapped: The 634 runways where missing Malaysia Airlines plane could have landed 3/15/14

    Landing sites: The red dots show all the places MH370 could have landed within the search area
    Potential hijackers had enough fuel to fly anywhere from Pakistan to Western Australia

    Just watched this on CNN. Wish she would not have given the interview as she says he is very level headed & could bargain with whoever took the plane. She feels he is alive; but is preparing for the fork to go either way. She is packed & ready to go wherever she needs to be. Her son helped her pick out an outfit for Phil as she said that if he's found alive he wouldn't want to be in his dirty clothes; nor stuck in a hospital gown.

    Video interview on CNN Partner: I have to prepare for worst
    Added on March 17, 2014 Sarah Bajc, partner to Flight 370 passenger Phil Wood, says she thinks her boyfriend is still alive.

    Claims today that the missing Malaysian Airlines jet dropped to an altitude of 5,000ft to avoid radar lends credibility to reports by villagers that they saw bright lights and loud noises at about the time the aircraft is thought to have made a 'U-turn'.
    Investigators told a Malaysian newspaper that the Boeing 777 had dropped to a lower altitude to avoid ground radar, using the surrounding terrain as a sonar barrier.

    *note: Two male passengers listed (above), an Italian and Austrian, are actually Iranians traveling with stolen passports.
    Delavar Seyed Mohammad Reza, 29 (traveling on stolen passport of Italian national, Luigi Maraldi, 37)
    Pouria Mehrdad, 19 (traveling on stolen passport of Austrian national, Christian Kozel, 30)

    more:
    The two Iranian passengers in question were traveling on passports that had previously been reported stolen by tourists in Thailand. One belonged to an Austrian tourist who said his passport was stolen at Phuket’s airport and the other to an Italian, who has said the passport was taken when he left it as a deposit to rent a motorcycle.

    The Financial Times reported that the Iranians had purchased their tickets through a travel agency in Pattaya, Thailand.

    Benjaporn Krutnait, owner of the agency Grand Horizon Travel, told the newspaper that the tickets were booked by an Iranian business associate she knew as “Mr. Ali,” and that the passengers were traveling through Beijing, only because they were the cheapest tickets to Europe available.

    http://thedailyworld.com/news/men-missing-plane-using-stolen-passports-had-no-terror-ties-police-say

    According to the Chicago Tribune, Reza's ticket indicated that he was ultimately traveling to Copenhagen...

    Reza was reportedly traveling with fellow Iranian, 19-year-old Pouria Nour Mohammed Mehrdad. Both traveled from Qatar to Malaysia with their legitimate Iranian passports. Then, on Saturday morning, both boarded flight 370 with stolen European passports. Mehrdad was carrying an Austrian passport and was ultimately headed to Frankfurt, Germany, where his mother was waiting for him, according to her statement to authorities.

    KUALA LUMPUR, Malaysia (AP) — Malaysian police on Sunday were examining a flight simulator belonging to one of the pilots of the missing jetliner and investigating engineers who worked on the plane, sharpening the probe into the jet's disappearance after authorities revealed it was a deliberate act.

    The government said police searched the homes of both of the plane's pilots on Saturday, but did not say whether it was the first time officers had done so since the flight went missing more than a week ago with 239 people aboard en route to Beijing from Kuala Lumpur.

    SEPANG: A Greek petrochemical tank was asked to keep an eye out for ‘floating suitcases’ at the Straits of Malacca here yesterday.
    Elka Athina, a barge heading to Suez was alerted by Indonesian authorities over radio, warning them that they were ‘approaching a field of debris’.

    Several Greek news portals, Tovima and Times of Change were abuzz as sources from the barge alerted them over the apparent sighting.

    The portals reported several other barges passing the the busy straits were ‘rushed’ to a coordinate off Sumatran waters.

    Another Greek portal published an audio interview with a first officer of the ship, claiming that it was steaming towards a ‘debrs zone’ in the northern waters of the Malacca Strait.

    However, checks with online ship tracking websites revealed that the tanker had sailed passed the debris field at about 9.30pm (Malaysia Time).

    It is believed that authorities had red flagged a possible area in the straits after users of the map crowdsourcing site Tomnod have indicated a possible debris field in the Straits of Malacca.

    A twitter user, Richard Barrow, posted a satellite image of ‘a potential crash site’ and ‘possible floating seats’ on the surface of the ocean at coordinate 5°39'08.0"N 98°50'38.0"E.
