An MH370 expert has claimed the doomed jet was shot down by the US Air Force to prevent secret technology from reaching China.
Investigative journalist Florence de Changy said the Americans tried to intercept the plane with signal jamming technology – resulting in 239 passengers disappearing.
In her book The Disappearing Act: The Impossible Fall of MH370she describes her theories from seven years of intensive research into one of the greatest mysteries of aviation in history.
De Changy said she believes the official version of events was cloaked in deception.
It is a three-part documentary exploring the theories behind the mysterious disappearance of the planes on Channel 5 for three consecutive nights this week.
Flight MH370: The Disappearance also hears tragic stories from the families of the crew and passengers.
The official script for the Boeing-777 disappearance suggests the plane made a dramatic U-turn less than an hour into its scheduled flight from Kuala Lumpur to Beijing – before crashing into the Indian Ocean.
But de Changy has branded the discovery of a “diversion operation” as “the biggest cover-up in recent memory”.
In the 400-page publication, the French reporter suggests the US Air Force tried to ambush the plane by intercepting tracking technology to make the plane disappear from radar screens.
She believes the MH370 was transporting a shipment of “electronic equipment” to China – which the US does not condone.
The book claims it was shot down after a failed attempt to divert its course, and the matter has been feverishly covered up ever since.
She believes the shipment contained 2.5 tons of “poorly documented Motorola electronics” owned by the United States.
Beijing got wind of the delivery and decided to bid for it, diverting the plane via Kuala Lumpar before flying to China’s sprawling capital.
In a tit-for-tat game, US authorities reportedly chose to intercept the cargo by forcing the MH7370 to land and stealing it – before sending it on its way.
Two US Airborne Early Warning planes may have overcrowded the Malaysian plane from above and below to block its magnetic field and render it invisible, she said.
She said: “The shooting down could have been a mistake, but it could also have been a last resort to prevent the plane and its special cargo from falling into Chinese hands.”
The author credits her hypothesis to her thorough research of the study, which she feels was botched from the start.
She began pondering the mystery in March 2014, when Australia led a £110million search covering 50,000 square miles in the depths of the Indian Ocean until 2017.
“When it came to the art of botching a search and providing misinformation, intentional or accidental, Australia was pretty close to Malaysia,” said the journalist.
According to de Changy, the details of the missing jet were “put together like a jigsaw puzzle over the ensuing weeks, months, and years in the light of information released in droplet and droplet, largely diluted in a sea of false or incorrect data.”
She boldly declared, “The progress of truth has been paralyzed from day one.”
“‘It wasn’t possible for a Boeing 777 to just disappear.”
Haunted by death threats
It comes as Blaine Gibson, who recovered the first piece of debris from missing Malaysian airline MH370 in 2015, says he was followed by death threats and was pursued by shadowy figures as he continued his search.
appeal MH370: The DisappearanceBlaine said he feared “someone trying to prevent Malaysia MH370 from being found might use violence against me…but I didn’t know who”.
He said: “I started getting death threats from anonymous people. Things like ‘No plane, no Blaine’ and being asked to give up my search.
“One called a friend of mine and said I would not leave Madagascar alive.
“I’ve been followed and photographed and yes it’s very disturbing. It’s intimidating.”
The documentary also hears the story of Ghyslain Wattrelos, who lost his wife Laurence, 51, and two of their three children, Hadrien, 17, and Ambre, 13, in the disaster.
The French father, who was living in Beijing at the time, revealed the final, heartbreaking text his daughter sent before boarding the doomed flight with her mother and brother after a holiday in Malaysia.
“A friend of my daughter’s called me and sent me the last text message from Ambre,” he said.
“It said: ‘My vacation is over but I am very happy because tomorrow I will see my father’.”
By working with Blaine, the grieving father began to believe that the Malaysian authorities or the Chinese were obscuring the true location of the likely crash, since they didn’t want the plane found.
“Somewhere in this world, someone knows what happened, and it’s not just one person, it’s a big story. It’s a dirty story involving many countries,” he said.
“I firmly believe there was something or someone on the plane that they didn’t want arriving in Beijing, so they shot down that plane.”
Despite the plethora of conspiracy theories, most of the show’s pundits conclude that intentional action by Captain Zaharie is the most likely cause of the crash.
