A new theory of what happened to Malaysia Airlines flight MH 370 by Captain Simon Hardy

Malaysia Airlines (Kuala Lumpur) flight MH 370 remains missing after we approach March 8, the first anniversary of the lost flight. Searchers are already stating the search cannot go on forever. It is possible the remains of the pictured Boeing 777-2H6 ER 9M-MRO (msn 28420) with 239 passengers and crew members on board may never be found.

According to this report by news.com.au citing a published report by Flightglobal, “British senior Captain Simon Hardy, who works with a major commercial airline, has claimed that Malaysia Airlines flight MH370 was taken on an emotional “last farewell” near the pilot’s home island of Penang, before being deliberately landed in the ocean.”

Captain Hardy believes Captain Shah made a series of turns over his Penang birthplace as an emotional goodbye before crashing the Triple Seven into the sea with all on board.
