epa05432920 An undated handout picture made available by the Australian Transport Safety Bureau (ATSB) on 20 July 2016 shows Malaysian and Australian investigators examining a piece of aircraft debris found on Pemba Island off the coast of Tanzania on 23 June 2016, believed to be an outboard wing flap belonging to Malaysia Airlines flight MH370, in Canberra, Australian Capital Territory, Australia. The ATSB received the debris on 18 July 2016, and is currently working with Malaysian investigators to ascertain whether it is from the Malaysia Airlines Boeing 777 flight MH370 that went missing on 08 March 2014 with 227 passengers and 12 crew members on board while en route from Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, to Beijing, China.

Expert on MH370 Disappearance: ‘There Is Absolutely No Mystery To What Happened’

Larry Vance, 67, a Canadian flight accident investigator, has worked on more than 200 airplane crashes, including that of Swissair Flight 111, an MD-11 aircraft that crashed off the Canadian coast in 1998, killing all 229 people on board. Vance concluded the four-year-investigation with a report detailing how a fire had started inside a cockpit panel, probably due to some faulty wiring. Since retiring from Canada’s Transport Safety Board in 2009, he started a career as an independent investigation consultant, and also teaches accident investigator courses worldwide. Now Vance has focused his attention on the mysterious disappearance of Malaysia Airlines Flight MH370, which had been en route to Beijing on March 8, 2014 when it vanished from radar screens.

  • Makes perfect sense, and from an expert.
    But it isn’t the story the media and conspiracy theorists want told.

    • Brett_McS

      I wonder if Air Crash Investigations will do another episode on this incident?

  • Drunk_by_Noon

    Some of our investigators are saying that the recovered debris size is too large for anything other than a controlled landing into water.
    This is a weird one.

    • Brett_McS

      The explanation is in the article. The plane was flown as gently as possible onto the water by extending the flaps in order that it would remain intact and sink to the bottom, never to be seen again. The pilot wanted it to be a mystery, but parts of the flaps came off and were recovered.

  • Oh, this is terrible.

    They were probably killed by apoxia which was induced by someone from within the cockpit.

    What’s he saying here?

    • dance…dancetotheradio

      If they were killed by apoxia that would have been merciful.

    • Clink9

      I guess they can shut off the O2 to the passenger cabin,.

      • Exile1981

        the killer likely killed air compression to the cabin and after 10 minutes a lot of people would be dead.

        • Clink9

          Like the golfer Payne Stewart years ago.

          • Brett_McS

            Yes, but with that one they forgot to pressurise the cabin and when the pilots realized something was wrong and pulled out the emergency instruction manual it listed numerous steps for them to do before putting on their oxygen mask. All manuals now make putting on the oxygen mask the first step in such circumstances.

    The muslim pilot’s political hero, the muslim extremist leader of the opposition, was popped into prison on a real or frame sodomy rap around the same time by the government. As Lt Columbo would say “Just one more thing”.
