Near-conclusive evidence that Malaysia Airlines MH370 was hijacked: cockpit tampering deliberately hid plane from radar

New evidence is now emerging that Malaysia Airlines flight 370 was almost certainly hijacked. This is now readily apparent from the fact that the aircraft cockpit electrical systems were tampered with, reports the Telegraph. (1)

Immediately after the aircraft was hijacked, the persons(s) in control of the flight deck powered down the aircraft’s transponder which “squawks” location and altitude details to air traffic controllers. Boeing 777 aircraft electrical systems can be independently powered down or restarted from the flight deck, as long as the person knows what they’re doing.

This effort to power down the transponder caused a power outage of the plane’s connection with a satellite, requiring that connection to be renegotiated to establish a new “handshake.” It is this highly unusual request for a new satellite handshake that raised a red flag in the minds of investigators: aircraft don’t normally make such handshake requests unless recovering from a power outage (i.e. the rebooting of electrical subsystems).

“An analysis was performed which determined that the characteristics and timing of the logon requests were best matched as resulting from power interruption,” declared a report from the Australian Transport Safety Bureau (similar to the NTSB in the United States). (1)
