(Flight MH370) Pilot deleted files from Boeing 777 simulator at home
(03-19 18:03)

Malaysian officials said today files had been recently deleted from the home flight simulator belonging to the pilot aboard the missing Malaysia Airlines Boeing 777.
Defense Minister Hishammuddin Hussein told a news conference in Kuala Lumpur that investigators are trying to retrieve the files.
He said the pilot, Capt Zaharie Ahmad Shah (Pictured), is innocent until proven guilty of any wrongdoing.
"Some data had been deleted from the simulator and forensic work to retrieve this data is ongoing,'' Hishammuddin said.
Files containing records of simulations carried out on the program were deleted on February 3, Malaysian police chief Khalid Abu said.
Deleting files would not necessarily represent anything unusual, especially if it were to free up memory space, but investigators would want to check the files for any signs of unusual flight paths that could help explain where the missing plane went.
As for passenger background checks, clearance is awaited on two Ukranians and a Russian on board.
“We have received passengers' background checks from all countries apart from Ukraine and Russia,'' Hishammuddin said.
“So far no information of significance on passengers has been found.''
