Did Serco Use Secret Boeing Patents To Fly Missing MH Way Points?
MH370 was the first ‘remote hijacking’ and carried out to stop jet delivering secret cargo to China, author claims – Norman Davies says technology designed to stop a repeat of the 9/11 terror attacks by allowing hijacked planes to be remotely controlled on land may have been exploited by cyber-spooks

A RESPECTED historian and writer says missing Malaysia Airlines flight MH370 could have been hacked and remotely flown to a secret location.
Norman Davies says technology designed to stop a repeat of the 9/11 terror attacks by allowing hijacked planes to be remotely controlled from the ground may have been exploited by cyber-spooks.
Norman Davies points out the plane had a remote piloting system
The plane, which vanished while flying from Kuala Lumpur to Beijing in March 2014, was equipped with Boeing Honeywell Un-interruptible Autopilot.
In his book Beneath Another Sky: A Global Journey into History he says that the very existence of this technology makes such a nightmarish scenario possible.
Mr Davies told The Sunday Times the plane may have been carrying sensitive material or personnel to Beijing and was subjected to two kidnap attempts.
He said: “Nobody has come up with an answer, so it is perfectly valid to speculate.
“My solution is intelligible. I feel that the plane was remotely kidnapped by a hacker and then a second hacker or remote controller took it over.
“The first kidnap was by the Americans, who wanted to stop the plane getting to Beijing and planned to divert it to Diego Garcia [a US naval base in the Indian Ocean], and then somebody hacked it to stop it from getting there.””
