In this book, Mr. Lee, who has a military and intelligence background in the United Kingdom and holds many licenses, has done many aircraft accidents and incident investigations throughout his career. He is very well known in the aviation community, but for purposes of this book, he has decided to use the name Peter Lee as a pseudonym. Throughout the chapters, Mr. Lee documents all the facts wrapped around the disappearance of Malaysia Airlines Flight MH 370 which left from Kuala Lumpur International Airport in Malaysia and less than an hour later disappeared completely off of all flight radars. He provides many theories as to what he thinks might have happened to the plane and its 239 occupants.
I must admit, I didn’t know what to expect before reading this book. I loved how the author presented the facts and then presented his educated theories about what could have happened to MH 370. He provided plenty of straightforward data that any reader, without any prior aviation knowledge, could follow along without having any issues understanding his theories. I found his theories very thought provoking to say the least. It’s so sad to say that still to this date, the plane hasn’t been found yet. If you’re interested in reading what Mr. Lee’s theories are about Flight MH 370, this is certainly a great book to add to your library.
If you want to know what really happened to flight MH 370, this book is a must-buy.
In 'MH 370: By Accident or Design', a former military pilot and air traffic control officer analyses the exact sequence of events that took place on the night of 8 March 2014 when Malaysia Airlines' flight MH 370 took off from Kuala Lumpur and then vanished from the face of the Earth.
He strips away the clouds of confusion to get right to the heart of the mystery, and suggests a believable and logical explanation for everything that happened that night. On the way, he analyses some of the alternative explanations that have been offered, including the conspiracy theories, and looks at the latest information from the Far East.
Some recently published works on this subject were rushed into print before the few indisputable facts were known, and many have been based on little more than the author's personal opinion, almost irrespective of these facts, or have been founded on apparently factual information that has since been discredited. This book starts off with no preconceptions at all. The author looks only at the facts of the matter, and has worked out a possible and believable explanation that covers everything we know about this flight from take-off to its ultimate fate. He also explains exactly how the aircraft systems - things like SSR, ACARS and ADS-B - work, and provides an overview of the satellite communications system that was able to provide basic tracking data for the aircraft long after voice communications ceased.
He explains the crucial significance of the position where the aircraft vanished from Malaysia's radar screens, and why that precise location was chosen by the perpetrator of this disappearance. And he shows why the route that the aircraft subsequently followed was not accidental, but entirely deliberate, and chosen for one very specific reason.
He concludes his analysis by explaining approximately where the aircraft is now, and why no confirmed wreckage from the aircraft has been found anywhere.
As a military controller, Peter Lee has previously been involved in aircraft accident and investigation procedures as apart of his job. He was solely responsible for deducing the precise reason, and specific sequence of events, that led to the loss of a Royal Navy Sea Harrier in the North Irish Sea some years ago, an event that at first sight appeared completely inexplicable, and was the principal expert witness at the subsequent Board of Inquiry. In the case of flight MH 370, he has turned that same critical eye on this disappearance, and his suggested explanation for what happened is both logical and believable.
