(Flight MH370) FBI chief says pilot's simulator still being analyzed
(03-27 09:23)

The US Federal Bureau of Investigation will soon complete its analysis of data from a flight simulator taken from the home of the pilot (Pictured) of a missing Malaysia Airlines Boeing 777, the US agency's director said Wednesday.
Malaysian officials had asked the FBI to help recover files deleted from the simulator's hard drive.
FBI chief James Comey told lawmakers that experts were working “literally round the clock'' to finish their analysis, in the hopes that the data could provide clues as to what happened to Flight 370.
Malaysia “took us up on our technical abilities, which involves the exploitation of certain computer forensic materials that they've given to us. That work is ongoing,'' Comey told a House subcommittee meeting to discuss the FBI's 2015 budget request.
”I don't want to say more about that in an open setting, but I expect it to be done fairly shortly, within a day or two.''
Malaysian police removed the simulator from Captain Zaharie Ahmad Shah's home nearly two weeks ago.--AFP
