MH370 investigators reject theory plane was deliberately crashed

Australian investigators told lawmakers Tuesday it's unlikely the pilot of Malaysian Airlines Flight 370 was conscious and deliberately crashed the plane four years ago, as has been claimed by experts recently.

A group of international experts concluded last week the pilot of the missing Boeing 777 probably made a deliberate descent into the Indian Ocean in March 2014 during a flight from Beijing to Kuala Lumpur.

Canadian air crash investigator Larry Vance said MH370 Capt. Zaharie Ahmad Shah made a intentional decision to crash the aircraft.

"He was killing himself; unfortunately, he was killing everybody else on board, and he did it deliberately," Vance said.

The experts added that Shah probably cut off oxygen to the passengers and used his emergency air supply to continue flying the jetliner.

Greg Hood and Peter Foley of the Australian Transport Safety Bureau, though, told a Senate hearing Tuesday it's likely Shah still would have been incapacitated by decompression sickness -- particularly in view of how long the plane continued to fly after dropping off radar.

"Most of the people out there are speculating about a long period of depressurization after the transponder went off," Foley said.

"What they fail to understand is that while you don an oxygen mask and prevent the worst of the hypoxia situation, you are flying an aircraft at 40,000 feet. ... You'll get decompression sickness too."

Foley told lawmakers the plane probably crashed into the ocean because it was out of fuel.
