Malaysia Airlines Flight MH370: Pilot’s Wife Speaks, Drops Potential Bombshell Revelation

Malaysia Airlines Flight MH370 wife of pilot

The wife of Malaysia Airlines Flight MH370 pilot Zaharie Shah has remained out of public view since the plane took its mysterious journey to an unknown destination on March 8. But now, two New Zealand journalists say they have scored an exclusive interview with Faizah Khanum Mustafa Khan, the pilot’s wife and presumed widow

And they say she dropped a bombshell that could help clear up the mystery of the missing plane.

The two writers are Geoff Taylor, who is deputy editor of New Zealand’s Waikato Times newspaper, and Ewan Wilson, a commercial pilot. They say that though no other journalists have been able to speak with Faizah, they reached her through her brother.

“In the three months-plus since the flight went down no-one in the media has been able to get close to Zaharie’s widow,” said Taylor.

On Sunday, reports surfaced in the media saying that the pilot, Shah, had been named as the chief suspect in the disappearance of the Malaysia Airlines plane. Those reports were quickly denied and harshly condemned by Malaysian officials.

But Taylor and Wilson say that what Shah’s wife told them points a finger squarely at the pilot after all.

According to the two New Zealand journalists, who are working on what they say will be the first comprehensive book about Flight MH370, Faizah told them that the final words heard from the plane by ground controllers, “Good night Malaysian three seven zero,” were in fact her husband’s voice.

Those words were spoken just before the ground lost contact with Flight MH370 — before the plane veered wildly from its pre-planned course from Kuala Lumpur to Beijing, flying instead far out over the Indian Ocean for reasons that remain utterly baffling to investigators.

The words were originally believed to have been spoken by the Malaysia Airlines Flight MH370 co-pilot Fariq Abdul Hamid. Investigators later backtracked and said they did not know who spoke the final words.

But if the voice heard on radio by ground controllers was indeed Zaharie Shah, the authors say it points to a deliberate act by Shah to divert the plane.

“We were lucky to get confirmation from her that it was him who was at the helm,” said Taylor, in his own paper, the Waikato Times. “It’s a breakthrough, because that was an unknown until now. It puts Zaharie right in the mix.”

The New Zealand writers say their book, Good Night Malaysian 370: The Truth Behind the Loss of Flight 370, which is set to be released in e-book form July 30, contains the “one shocking and unbelievable conclusion” that they were forced to draw from their three months of research.

That conclusion, according to the Waikato Times, is that whatever happened to Malaysia Airlines Flight MH370 disappearance “was no accident, with the finger of blame pointing squarely at the pilot.”

Investigators have found deleted files on the home flight simulator owned by the Malaysia Airlines Flight MH370 pilot, showing that Shah practiced flying routes well out over the Indian Ocean. But they also found numerous other simulated flights practiced by the Flight 370 pilot, with no apparent connections among any of them.

    There are many sides to Geoffrey Taylor.

    To some he is a professor, a title given to him by an online university he helped set up and is now president of.

    To others he is a sir, a title he sometimes uses after being "knighted" by the Princip
    ality of Hutt River, a group near Perth that claims to have seceded from Australia.

    And to others, he is Lord of the Manor of Stubbington, a feudal title that goes back to the 11th century, which Mr Taylor somehow gained then passed on to his sons.

    He is married to his second wife, Priscila, who once wrote to company chairmen in New Zealand offering the services of "Lord Stubbington" as a non-executive director to firms looking to add "stature and credibility".

    And he is a man with his hands in many pies.

    But those who have worked with him say he is not an arms dealer.

    "I would be surprised if Geoff was, you know, too heavily involved with something like that," Stuart Miln, who ran one of Mr Taylor's former companies, told The Dominion Post.

    "I certainly would speak up for him on the basis that I'd be very surprised if he knew much more than who he sold a company to, which would probably be a lawyer or accountant."

    Selling or setting up shell companies seems to be what the 66-year-old does best.

    If this plane comes back into the US as a bomb folks are going to be embarrassed.

  3. Jim Garbett

    Yeah, no kidding Judy. You know, I'be been an airline pilot for over three decades. Typically, it's the Pilot Monitoring (PM) who takes care of the radio transmissions. Since Malaysian was either passing into Oceanic Airspace or the radio authority of another country, he was SIMPLY saying good night before switching frequencies. To presume otherwise remains simply idiotic.

    They know nothing. The fact that the pilot was practicing simulations about flying over the indian ocean means nothing without some context from the pilot or someone who asked the pilot about the simulation. The fact is, they don't know, and now will reveal a book saying they don't know but in write it in such a way that is points to whatever the hell they want. Money money money. They were rushing to find anything that could prove their point. Now they found something, that proves nothing, but the pilot MAY have said good night. Now that means it was his fault. I mean. Why else would he say good night, unless he wanted to kill everyone. It makes perfect sense.

    Wow. Journalists…wow.

    You really think a giant plane would be allowed to just fly into the US? lol My goodness some people are just beyond dumb in their attempt to scare people.

  6. Bruce Norbeck

    I'm sorry, but without reading the rest of their argument, I see no reason why Shah giving the "good night" comment automatically points to him as the culprit. I think that's going to remain my stance until someone comes up with an actual motive.

    Everyone of the bloggers was making fun of me on my comments at the beginning. I have said this since the first. The guy's world fell apart. His wife and kids left him, his favorite politician was arrested for sodomy. He was distraught. He locked the co pilot out of the cockpit. That is why the co pilots cell phone attempt was pick up. The pilot programmed the plane to fly until it ran out of gas. The Malaysian very cleverly covered this up out of embarrassment. costing unnecessarily money. To all of you that made fun of my comments. Don't be so fast to insult before you know.

    When investigators went to the Pilot's home and found, or reported, that the family had moved out ; I think that some "Higher Ups"should have interviewed the Pilot's wife and family, as part of the "investigation". Shouldn't have taken two reporters, versus many Skilled Experts, to get involved. Did the U.S. Government interview the pilot's family, in addition to checking out his Computer??? In the name of "Common Sense", I hope that a "Red Flag" went up…

    Acutally you all are idiots.
    The company these Workers were from was a military company 3 of 4 people who filed a patent pending for the chip was 3 people on Malaysia MH370 and the 4th was a rothschild Heir.
    Now what happens when 1 of the patent pending dies? His share of the 25 percent is shared with the 3 others.
    Now if he killed all 3?
    He owns 100 Percent of the patent.
    This man did nothing and most of you guys are idiots you can check up on the patent that was pending between these 4 fellows and 3 of them were on Malaysia airlines.
    Now shut up you people are sheep's who don't research but bitch and rant about stupid shit.

    God has bless me with three kids and a loving husband, i promise to share this Testimony because of God favor in my life, 4months ago i was in desperate need of money so i thought of having a Business loan then i ran into wrong hands who claimed to be a loan lender not knowing he was a scam. He collected 1,860USD from me and refuse to email me, since then i was confuse,but God came to my rescue, one faithful Sunday i went to church after the service i share idea with a Church member and she introduce me to a loan agency Called Queen William said she was given 300,000USD by the loan agency. I collected the loan agency email address and i emailed them on Monday morning, he told me the rules and regulation and i followed. After processing of the Documents he gave me a loan of 700,000 . Anyone can contact him through: queenwilliam21@gmail.com and i know that he must lend because they are the best.

    How the hell is this a 'bomb shell'? This changes nothing. If there were ever any experts examining the evidence, this was already known and discounted as the intent of the course change.

    How does a pilot saying GOOD NIGHT turn into s suicide threat? Was he suppose to say good morning ?

    The whole home flight simulator bit could have been set up as a red herring for investigators to find. The single most significant fact, according to a retired airline pilot friend of mine, is that no debris field has been found in nearly 4 months. This strongly suggests a land-based landing or attempted landing.

  17. Teri Rosemeyer Whalen

    I have, also, believed from the beginning that this was pilot suicide. As non-sensical as it sounds, it is the only thing that makes any sense given the circumstances of the flight. You are spot on!

    If he was going to crash the plane why would he need to practice it on his home computer? The logic doesn't make sense that a professional pilot practicing how to crash a plane.

    Hmm…. So it was the pilot's voice? And he had deleted files on his computer that had him simulating flying over the Indian Ocean? Wow…… that's nothing to be shocked about. As a matter of fact, it really doesn't mean anything, even if you put the two facts together, and even if you added those facts to what we already know. This proves nothing at all– all it proves is that he was on the radio (in the cockpit), and that he had practiced flying over the Indian Ocean… which Malaysia is pretty much next to the Indian Ocean. Maybe he was practicing for a flight to India… right over the Indian Ocean… that he was going to make at a later date (one scheduled by the airline)? I guess no one (including these two) thought of that.

    Come on, people. This is a white trash rag similar to what is bought at the super market tabloid section. Maybe, if you watch WTTV (white trash television) The Jerry Springer or Sally Jesse Rafael show's will have more on the pilot and his sexual prowess with an airliner.

    I had left over BBQ chicken for dinner. That would only conclude I had the same thing the night before. I am glad I do not buy these moronic books these clowns put out. Logic from the beginning put the pilot at blame. For the most part it doesn't matter who ditched it ,only where it is.

  32. Stephen Dalton

    I'm sorry MS Healey, am I missing something here? Why would we, as in the US government, interview the pilot's family, or check out his Computer? That would violate two of the things we hold dear, the right to privacy and the right's of a sovereign state to investigate and/or prosecute their own citizens, unless they're already in Guantanamo Bay. This was a Malaysian Airline was it not?

  33. Mark Renner

    so pilot error is to blame here! whew. here i thought it was a muslim hi jacking scheme. not that an airplane could be used to attack america or anything.

  34. Tami Grogan Kroening

    Find the plane and the black box then point fingers..

  35. Vincent Petitto

    Just another advertising play. The likelihood is that plane caught fire and burned out after it caught fire from batteries or front tire and changed course. It's wreckage is probably a couple hundred miles south of Malaysia.

  36. Jackie Burrell

    The only thing that kind of makes me question if the plane ever crashed is that video of the pilot talking about air conditioners. It would seem that he'd be in front of one while giving his how to do instructional video, yet he's sitting in front of his simulator and also off to the side so that all controls are showing and a plane on the screen in front of him. I personally found that very odd – almost as if someone was supposed to see something in that picture who looked at the video. I still find that troubling.

    If someone crashed a plane intentionally, they wouldn't fly around for hours. The plane may have depressurized and the pilot(s) did not have time or ability to get to a lower altitude and the plane flew on , like the Payne Stewart crash.

    I believe it. In the last recent years Islamics have used aviation often as a suicide tool. Offhand, I can remember the French airliner that went down intentionally in the Atlantic as the pilots end of life. To hell with the unwilling passengers. The bunch of Egyptian fighter pilots who sortied against the much more capable Israel fliers in '67, suicides all. Lets not leave out the 19 on 9/11. And now, Malaysia.

    Conclusion: If he has wings on his chest, and a funny cloth headdress, DON'T FLY with him. And a federal judge in Washington who decreed an end to the no fly list should be forced to.

    I tend to believe my “Zombie Plane” theory. A fire in the hold cut off power without warning to two-way communications, hence no “MAY-DAY” call. The cabin rapidly filling with eye and lung burning toxic fumes and smoke, the oxygen masks deploy. (if this system was not damaged as well) and the pilots had to think, and act fast. If the auto pilot was not on, it was put on about now. After assessing the situation, the pilots realized they would soon be overcome by the smoke and fumes, and the flight was doomed. Then they made the decision to do the honorable deed, and turned the aircraft towards the open ocean, so as to avoid any loss of life on the ground. (When contact with the plane was lost, it was about to make landfall in Vietnam) In any case, R.I.P. MH370

    If you are the pilot of a plane and that plane crashes or goes missing it is the pilot's fault he was the one flying it – so to defend him is ridiculous – the fact is – no one seems to know what happened and if they do know they are not saying – the only thing to focus on now is the families they are the one's who need support. Also it is weird that he would be practicing routes over the Indian Ocean – what are the chances of him flying over the Indian Ocean if it was not work related? – it will one day come to light someone knows something – and the wife she knows more than she is saying and the guilt is eating at her – that is why she is talking now she needed time to get her story straight. Look at the picture the daughter looks like she doesn't belong with them – they look like something is weighing heavy on them. It is just awful – that is why I say stay in the US and you won't have to worry! USA all the way!

    Glen Eckert Remember when they told us that they plane first climbed to unsurvivable heights, could be they did that to kill everyone to prevent a revolt. They then flew the plane to a remote island where they are hiding it until they are ready. The pilot had the flight simulator so he has probably trained many how to fly it. It is coming and it will not be long but when we least expect it. Our government knows.
