It’s been a week since a Malaysia Airline plane went missing without living any indication of what exactly went wrong. As the days have turned into a week, new evidence indicates that the disappearance may have been caused by someone onboard of the plane.
CNN reports, that 24 nations have come together to put an end to the suspicious that perhaps one or both of the pilots were to blame. Authorities have begun to search the houses of the pilots in hopes that they will find any clues indicating any foul play.
They also report that the Boeing 777-200ER may have flown for more than seven hours after its transponder stopped sending signals.
As a result, officials revealed the last time the satellite received data from the plane was 8:11 a.m., about seven hours and 31 minutes after the plane took off. As of now, officials have not been able to track the plane’s location with these same “pings,” ABC News reports.
Although there is several evidence indicating that the plane may have been hijacked, officials have not confirmed this and say that they are investigating “all possibilities,” ABC News also reports.
Zaharie Ahmad, 53, one of the pilots came under fire on Sunday when Malaysian investigators found a flight simulator in his home.
Britian’s Mail on Sunday, citing police sources, reported that Zaharie was an “obsessive” supporter of Malaysian opposition leader Anwar Ibrahim. The mail reported that Malaysian authorities feared that Zaharie may have been upset enough by Ibrahim’s imprisonment to hijack his own aircraft as a form of political protest.
The other pilot 27-year-old, Fariq Abdul Hamid has also come under scrutiny. According to a report by the New York Times, in 2011 he and another pilot brought two female passengers into the cockpit.
Though there are questions to be answered, one thing for certain, the families of the victims await answers.
