Pilot suicide, the newest theory about the crash of Flight MH370

By Curious

Captain Zaharie Ahmad Shah, the pilot of flight MH370 had serious family problems. According to a friend of the pilot, Zaharie was confused from depression because his wife was about to move out. This might be the reason for the pilot to have crashed the plane into the ocean, killing all the 239 passengers.

The long-term friend of the captain added that Zaharie didn’t appear to be in the right state of mind to do his job. On the condition of anonymity he said:

"It is very possible that neither the passengers nor the other crew on-board knew what was happening until it was too late. He's one of the finest pilots around and I'm no medical expert, but with all that was happening in his life Zaharie was probably in no state of mind to be flying."

The professional records of Captain Zaharie Ahmad Shah are excellent but his friend said Zaharie's personal life was a mess. He mentioned that all personal relationships of his friend were breaking down. The Captain had an affair but still he was crushed because of the decision of his wife to move out of their family's house. 

The shocking claims came right after a report showing that after the last voice communication from the cockpit, the plane climbed to height in the range 43,000 – 45,000 ft. According to an anonymous aviation industry source, the plane flew at this altitude for about 23 minutes and then it disappeared. According to the source, the oxygen would have run out in only 12 min. This would have led the oxygen mask to drop down, but they can supply oxygen 10 minutes at max. 

According to Ron Bishop, head of aviation at Central Queensland University, a pressure drop in the cabin probably had knocked out the crew and the passengers. That would mean MH370 would fly on unmanned, it would run out of fuel and would crash. He said:

"You’d just slowly pass out. But it would have no effect on the plane at all. The plane would just keep going until it eventually ran out of fuel. That would explain it all. That plane flew on a very long time, all the way from South East Asia to near the west coast of Australia."

Still that theory doesn't give an answer to the question why did the pilot fly for up to seven hours and did not crash the plane shortly after taking it off.
