Former Inspector General of the Department of Transportation Mary Schiavo appeared on "America's Newsroom" Friday to give her unique insight on the statistics surrounding the disappearance of Malaysian Airlines Flight 370.
Schiavo, who believes the plan suffered from a rapid decompression, identified six data points or "pins in the map" that are driving the search, including the point where the plane turned and the point it stopped transmitting.
"The plane would have had to turn to match up these data points," she explained.
However, Schiavo says physical evidence is still "essential" in determining why both cockpit transponders were off.
"There's not going to be an answer to this question as to whether they were destroyed, damaged and went down, or they were turned off until we get the cockpit voice recorder and flight data recorder. That's the data we've got to have."
"It's very important not to just say, 'We don't have anything else, so it must be the pilots.' It's often not."
