Transcript for Malaysian Plane Investigation: No Signs of Jet
We'll get more on this mystery now from ABC news aviation consultant colonel Stephen ganyard. He joins us this morning in Washington. Picking up on what bob was saying, the search area has been expanded because it could have been on autopilot and gone for thousands of miles. Robin, that's possible. That's possible. At this point I don't buy it and the reason is you'd have to have the crew incapacitated and you would have to have all the electrical systems on the plane fail. If it was going to continue to fly, the radar beacon sending out information to air traffic control facilities would till be giving position indications and so somewhere that airplane would have shown up or stayed on radar if they'd continue to fly. So it's a theory that -- it's possible, we don't know at this point but I just don't buy it. Right, and right now they're just theories, as you said. All is just theories but what the police are looking into, the background, specifically the psychological background of the pilot and co-pilot. Yeah, well, we have to look at that. You know, we have the Egypt air crash where the pilot deliberately flew it into the atlantic ocean and silkair crash a couple years back where the pilot flew it deliberately into a swamp so is it likely? No but it's something we've got to look at. Right now we have to find that airplane and find the wreckage or we're just going to continue to guess into perpetuity That's what we're doing here, Stephen. Just so many days have gone by now and just the frustration of the families and everyone involved in knowing that there's so many planes that are out there. There are so many ships out there but yet nothing is being found. Exactly. I'll tell you, personally I'm losing faith in the Malaysian government's ability to conduct this investigation. They have not told anybody why they've shifted their search area 500 miles off to the west. Why not off to the east? What respect they telling us? What did they see and in all of the countries such as the U.S. And China and Vietnam all complaining that the Malaysian government has not been forthcoming. I just don't see the coordination that's required and I'm losing faith in their ability to find this airplane. Someone to take the lead here. Stephen, thank you very much, as always for your insight. Appreciate it.
