Report on MH370 finds 'initially similar' route on pilot's flight simulatorBy Tom Westbrook and Jamie Freed SYDNEY/SINGAPORE (Reuters) – The captain of the Malaysian Airlines aircraft that vanished somewhere in the southern Indian Ocean with 239 people on board had flown a route on his home flight simulator six weeks earlier that was “initially similar” to the one actually taken, Australian authorities said on Tuesday. The details were contained in a 440-page final report by the Australian Transport Safety Bureau (ATSB) on the unsuccessful search for flight MH370. “It is almost inconceivable and certainly societally unacceptable in the modern aviation era…for a large commercial aircraft to be missing and for the world not to know with certainty what became of the aircraft and those on board,” the ATSB said.
