UPDATE ON FLIGHT MH370: Official police investigation ‘identifies captain Zaharie Ahmad Shah as prime suspect over plane’s disappearance’
Malaysian cops discovered that married dad of three Shah, 53, appeared to have made NO social or work commitments for the future, unlike other members of his crew, the Sunday Times reports.
Their probe also found that he had programmed a flight simulator with drills practising a flight far out into the southern Indian Ocean and landing on a island with a short runway, the paper claims.
The drills were said to have been deleted but later recovered by computer experts.
Flight MH370 disappeared on March 8 while en route from Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia to Beijing, China.
There were 239 passengers and crew members on board.
To date, no trace of the Boeing 777 has been found.
