Bukti MH370 terhempas kerana kebakaran Cockpit

Is this proof that flight MH370 was downed by a 'blow torch' fire in its cockpit? British lawyers claim missing jet suffered same fate as another Boeing 777 three years ago
- Malaysian authorities believe foul play aboard could have downed the jet
- But London-based law firm believe a fault led the plane to catch fire
- EgyptAir Boeing 777-200 with 291 passengers on board caught fire in 2011
- Cairo fire due to problem with the cockpit hose used to provide oxygen
- 280 Boeing 777s were delivered with the faulty wiring that caused Cairo fire
- It is unclear if Air MH370 was one of the affected planes

A 'blow torch' fire which ripped through the cockpit of a Boeing 777 in Egypt three years ago could hold the clue to the fate of the missing Malaysia Airlines flight, it has been claimed.
Stewarts Law, which has litigated in a series of recent air disasters, believes the plane crashed after a fire - similar to the blaze on the Cairo airport runway- broke out in the cockpit.
Since the Beijing-bound airliner disappeared on 8 March with 239 people on board speculation has been rife about whether foul play by either the pilots or someone aboard led the aircraft to disappear
A fire which led to a Boeing 777 being written off in Egypt in 2011 could explain the disappearance of the Malaysia airlines jet, it has been claimed
But James Healy-Pratt, a member of the firm who is also a pilot said: 'We believe in the simpler explanation that there was probably a form of electrical fire leading to a rapid decompression and that then resulted in the turn-back and the aircraft disappearing somewhere in the Indian Ocean,' he told The Times.
The British law firm, which is advising families of the missing passengers, is comparing the current situation with a fire that broke out on the flight deck of an EgyptAir Boeing 777-200 with 291 passengers on board as it prepared to depart for Jeddah from Cairo airport.
The crew and passengers escaped without injury, although seven people including passengers, Egyptair staff and fire fighters suffered from mild asphyxia and were transferred to hospitals.

When the captain was preparing the aircraft for departure the oxygen levels were normal, but 30 minutes later the first officer heard a pop followed by a hissing sound underneath a cockpit window to the right.
The captain tried to put the fire out using the fire extinguisher available in the cockpit, but it was too powerful and firefighters worked at extinguishing it for over an hour.
After an investigation Egypt's Aircraft Accident Investigation Central Directorate (EAAICD) released their final report which revealed that the fire originated near the first officer's oxygen mask supply tubing - investigators pinpointed a problem with the cockpit hose used to provide oxygen for the crew in the event of decompression.
Following the 2011 blaze US aircraft owners were instructed to replace the system.
It is unclear if Air MH370 was one of the affected planes.
'In simple terms, this fault can cause a blowtorch type fire that will melt aluminium in a matter of seconds,' said James Healy-Pratt, told The Telegraph.
'We believe that in due course, the crew will be regarded as heroes rather than villains, and we sincerely hope the Black Boxes will contain the data to back that up, and to prevent further needless loss of life,' Mr Healy-Pratt added.
The cockpit fire theory has been supported byChris Goodfellow, a Canadian pilot with 20 years experience, who hailed captain Zaharie Ahmad Shah as a hero, not a hijacker, in his fascinating explanation, which claims to debunks all theories about the fate of the missing jet.
He insists the only reasonable scenario is that a fire broke out aboard the plane and Shah was doing exactly what he needed to do in an emergency - get the plane to the nearest airport as soon as possible.

In this case, that was the 13,000 foot strip Palau Langkawi, and that is directly where the aircraft was heading when it was last tracked.
However, Goodfellow believes the crew were overcome by smoke and the aircraft flew as a 'ghost plane' for hours past the chosen airport.
'We old pilots were always drilled to always know the closest airport of safe harbor while in cruise. Always,' Goodfellow wrote. 'Instinctively when I saw that left turn with a direct heading I knew he was heading for an airport.'
He said he immediately brought up Google Earth and discovered the runway, which was had fewer obstacles blocking the plane's approach than if Shah attempted to return to Kuala Lumpar, which was also further away.
COULD MH370 HAVE CRASHED DUE TO A NEW FAULT WITH A BOEING?
Amsa said the change in search area came from new information based on continuing analysis of radar data between the South China Sea and the Strait of Malacca before radar contact was lost with Flight 370 early on March 8.
'This is our best estimate of the area in which the aircraft is likely to have crashed into the ocean,' said Martin Dolan, chief commissioner of the Australian Transport Safety Bureau.
The new search area is more than 600 miles north of an area in which apparently floating objects were spotted by Japanese, Thai and French satellites earlier this week.
Mr Young said those satellite images 'may or may not actually be objects' and acknowledged that the search had moved away from that area.
He said it was not unusual to make such changes and dismissed questions that the earlier searches had been a wasted effort.
'This is the normal business of search and rescue operations - that new information comes to light, refined analyses take you to a different place,' he said. 'I don't count the original work as a waste of time.'
The new area is 123,000 square miles and about 1,250 miles west of Perth. The sea depth in the new area ranges from 6,560ft to 13,120ft, Mr Young said.
Australia's HMAS Success and five Chinese vessels are on their way, and that the Success is expected to arrive tomorrow night local time.
Strong winds and currents have made it difficult to pinpoint objects spotted so far, and the search has yet to produce any trace of the plane.
Malaysian officials said earlier this week that satellite data confirmed the plane crashed into the southern Indian Ocean.
Authorities are rushing to find any piece of the plane to help them locate the so-called black boxes, or flight data and voice recorders, that will help solve the mystery of why the jet, flying to Beijing from Kuala Lumpur, flew so far off-course. The battery in the black box normally lasts about a month.
