Re: Revisiting MH370

2. It is well known that the pilot had flight paths on his home simulator that very strong mirrored the actual flight path of MH370. Coincidental? Highly unlikely. It's not actually. What was actually found on the sim was a series of breadcrumb points - six if I remember correctly. The first four w...

To me the most likely way to take this is that FSA is the Future Brazil Project and NMA will take the core. This is insanity. One thing we can be certain of is that the A320 and 737NG/MAX series cover the market sweet spot. 27,000 odd orders between them prove that. It may have moved slightly in ca...
