A flight destined for China from Malaysia recently went missing in mid-flight. While no wreckage or sign of the plane has been discovered so far, Aviation Accident Attorney Jamie Lebovitz recently gave some insight into what may have caused the disappearance and what actions will follow.
Yesterday, News Net 5 spoke with Mr. Lebovitz regarding his thoughts on the missing flight. He explained the lack of information that has come forth regarding whether Malaysian Airlines Flight 370 crashed or was hijacked is unusual and a new experience after more than 30 years of being professionally involved in some of the world’s largest aviation accidents.
This lack of data could be a sign of poor investigation efforts by Malaysian officials, and may indicate the lax integrity of the entire investigation. Lebovitz added the computers and email accounts of the flight crew should be closely examined due to similarities between the mystery that shrouds the disappearance of the Malaysian Airlines flight and the Commercial Airline Crash of Egypt Airlines Flight 990 that occurred in 1999.
In that case, the pilot of the aircraft attempted to take a break after reaching cruising altitude. When the relief pilot attempted to take over, he accidentally hit the flight controls and sent the plane into a dive, causing it to crash into the ocean.
The most important thing, Lebovitz says, is gathering more information to determine what happened to the flight. In the meantime, the attorneys with Nurenberg, Paris, Heller & McCarthy would like to send their thoughts and sympathies to the families and friends of those who are missing.
