MH370 pilot ‘obsessed with online twins and showed self-destructive behaviour’

A new investigation into the disappearance of the doomed MH370 flight has unearthed worrying details about the pilot’s personal life.

Captain Zaharie Ahmad Shah was in command when the Malaysian Airlines flight carrying 238 other passengers and crew vanished mid-flight in 2014.

Hundreds of theories have been put forward for the Boeing 777’s sudden disappearance, but new evidence could point the finger of blame towards Shah, after the discovery of his social media activity suggested a man with ‘self-destructive’ tendencies.

In the year leading up the MH370 mystery, Shah used Facebook to pursue Malaysian twin-sister models 34 years younger than him, leaving sexually suggestive comments on numerous occasions.

The 26-year-old sisters, Lan Qi Hui and Qi Min Lan, received more than 97 messages from Shah during 2013 – most of which were ignored.

Shah persistently urged the twins to visit Kuala Lumpar – where he lived with his wife – and responded to one photo of Qi Min Lan in a bathrobe, asking ‘Just shower?’

On top of his obsessive messages to the girls, Zaharie frequently publicly criticised the Malaysian government, despite working for a state-owned airline.

In April 2013, leading up to the election of then-prime minister Najib Razak, Shah posted 119 times about Razak, before responding to his appointment with: ‘There is a rebel in each and every one of us. Let it out!’

He later went on to describe Razak as a ‘moron’.

Aviation expert and editor-in-chief of airlineratings.com, Geoffrey Thomas, said it was alarming for a senior pilot to make political comments at all.

Thomas said: "It should have raised serious alarm bells with the airline that you have someone flying who has such strong anti-government views.

"If a Qantas pilot did something like that, he would be spoken to and grounded."

UK-based psychologist, Paul Dickens said: "I think what you’re seeing is a degree of obsessional behaviour mixed with recklessness, which is unusual for a pilot.

"He had a degree of obsessional behaviour about the politics and the girl.”

Despite an extensive four-year international search, the remains of MH370 have still not been located.

The last communication from the plane came from Captain Zaharie Ahmad Shah, who signed off with "Good night, Malaysian three seven zero".
