What pilot's flight simulator could reveal about Flight 370
March 21, 2014 / America's Newsroom
A flight simulator belonging to the pilot of Malaysia Airlines Flight 370 is being sent to an FBI forensic lab in Quantico, Virginia for analysis.
Appearing on “America’s Newsroom” on Friday, former CIA Deputy Director Philip Mudd weighed in on what information might be obtained about the missing plane. He said that experts will first look at what Captain Zaharie Ahmad Shah deleted in an effort to gain a sense of what was going on inside the pilot’s mind. To do that they will try and match any data up with his e-mails and communications in the days before the flight went missing.
“I bet there’s going to be an interesting clue here, but I bet equally that the clue’s going to be very frustrating. It’s a tiny piece of a puzzle that’s going to take months to grow,” said Mudd.
Bill Hemmer then asked Mudd for insight into the images of possible debris and the physical search for the plane itself.
Mudd explained: “We’re looking for a needle in a haystack using a bunch of assets and now we don’t know where the haystack is. We don’t know whether it’s north or south. And furthermore, in the two weeks that have passed the haystack might have moved to places we couldn’t have anticipated because of things like currents.”
