Investigators trying to solve the disappearance of a Malaysia Airlines jetliner are looking at ‘sabotage or hijacking’, after examining military radar data reports suggesting the plane was purposely flown hundreds of miles off course.
Reuters is reporting that analysis of the Malaysia data suggests the Boeing 777 carrying 239 people on board, diverted from its intended northeast route from Kuala Lumpur to Beijing and instead flew west, using airline flight paths normally taken to the Middle East and Europe.
This points to the theory that the plane was being flown by the pilots or possibly someone familiar with those routes, according to sources in the Reuters report.
“What we can say is we are looking at sabotage, with hijack still on the cards,” said that source, a senior Malaysian police official.
Malaysian police have previously said they were checking whether any passengers or crew had personal or psychological problems that might offer clues to why the plane vanished, along with the possibility of a hijacking, sabotage or mechanical failure.
