MH370: Dr Mahathir isytihar tak mau lagi naik pesawat Boeing ...

mh-drm-beoingBekas Perdana Menteri Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad berikrar tidak mahu terbang menggunakan pesawat buatan Boeing melainkan mereka boleh jelaskan mengapa semua sistem gagal dan dilumpuhkan.

Beliau merujuk kehilangan pesawat Boeing 777-200 milik syarikat Malaysia Airlines (MAS) Mac lalu yang menjadi misteri sehingga kini.

Dalam tulisan terbaru di blog peribadinya, chedet.cc, kata Dr Mahathir, sebagai pengeluar pesawat Boeing bertanggungjawab ke atas kehilangan misteri tersebut dan mempertahankan MAS yang menerima cemuhan dan kritikan banyak pihak, mengatakan Boeing yang sepatutnya dipersalahkan di atas kehilangan MH370 dan 239 penumpang serta anak kapal.

"Saya sangat kecewa apabila pekerja MAS ditahan sebagai tebusan di Beijing oleh ahli keluarga penumpang MH370,” tulis Dr Mahathir dalam blognya Jumaat.

"Saya kecewa kerana mereka menyalahkan pihak yang salah. Kehilangan pesawat tersebut berpunca daripada pengeluarnya, Boeing."

MAS mengesahkan kakitangannya ditahan di sebuah dewan utama di Lido Hotel, Beijing petang Khamis lalu.

Insiden tersebut tercetus ekoran ahli keluarga tidak berpuas hati dengan pendedahan butiran berhubung kehilangan pesawat itu.

MH370 hilang secara tiba-tiba tidak dapat dikesan radar selepas berlepas dari Kuala Lumpur pada 8 Mac lepas, dan tiada sebarang isyarat kecemasan atau amaran diterima Menara Kawalan Udara.

Teori alat pengesan dimatikan sendiri oleh individu dalam pesawat MH370 diperkatakan sejak awal kehilangan, bagaimanapun Dr Mahathir membidas Boeing kerana mengeluarkan sebuah pesawat yang mudah dilumpuhkan sistemnya daripada dikesan.

"Bagaimana Boeing boleh mengeluarkan pesawat yang mudah dilumpuhkan sistemnya?" katanya.

"Boeing mesti jelaskan mengapa semua alat pengesan pesawat boleh dilumpuhkan, boleh gagal.

"Sama ada teknologinya sangat lemah atau tidak selamat. Saya tidak akan terbang dengan menggunakan pesawat Boeing lagi melainkan mereka boleh jelaskan mengapa semua sistem gagal dan dilumpuhkan," kata Dr Mahathir.

Dr Mahathir mengulangi kehairanannya dan berkata mustahil MH370 hilang secara tiba-tiba tanpa dapat dikesan dengan teknologi dan satelit canggih yang dimiliki ketika ini.

"Saya percaya terdapat peralatan dalam pesawat yang membolehkan ia dikesan, mungkin dengan GPS (Global Positioning System).

"Kamera rumit yang dikendalikan satelit pengintip oleh sesetengah negara boleh mengambil gambar orang di bumi dan mengenalpastinya. Sudah pasti kamera dapat melihat dan mengambil gambar pesawat 63 meter panjang tersebut," kata beliau.

Menurut Dr Mahathir lagi, syarikat Boeing juga tidak menunjukkan kesungguhan dalam misi mencari dan menyelamat tersebut, walhal sepatutnya mereka yang bertanggungjawab untuk menjejak semula MH370.

"Boeing dan pihak berkuasa negara pengeluar yang sepatutnya mencari pesawat tersebut. Mungkin jenis pesawat tersebut juga perlu dihentikan.

"Tetapi Boeing tidak menunjukkan sebarang minat dan mengeluarkan kenyataan yang secara praktikalnya salah," kata beliau.

Dr Mahathir juga tidak mempercayai teori yang mengatakan juruterbang dan pembantunya melakukan tindakan membunuh diri dan sengaja membiarkan pesawat terhempas.

"Juruterbang MAS dilatih sebaik mungkin. Walaupun juruterbang mahu membunuh diri, pembantunya dan anak kapal tidak akan membenarkan ia berlaku tanpa menghalangnya.

"Namun, tiada seorang pun, tiada seorang penumpang yang melakukan sesuatu. Mungkin mereka pengsan kerana kekurangan oksigen," kata Dr Mahathir.

Bagi Dr Mahathir, syarikat penerbangan negara tersebut tidak wajar dipersalahkan.

"MAS menerbangkan pesawat yang dijangka melengkapkan tugasannya. Tetapi pesawat tersebut tiba-tiba berkelakuan ganjil.

"Siapa yang bertanggungjawab? Bukan MAS, tetapi pastinya pengeluar pesawat - Boeing Aircraft Corporation," katanya.-26/4/2014

TULISAN LENGKAP DR MAHATHIR

I am very upset over MAS employees being held hostage in Beijing by the relatives of the passengers of MH 370.  I am upset because they are blaming the wrong people.  The loss of the plane is due to the makers Boeing.

How can Boeing produce a plane that is so easily disabled.  Normally it is entirely possible for the crew, the pilots and co-pilots to communicate even with KLIA.  Maybe the captain did not want to. But surely the co-pilot would want to inform ground stations that the plane was not flying according to the scheduled route.

The passengers may not notice but the co-pilot would.  So would the cabin crew. They are all trained to deal with emergencies if not immediately, at least later.

But none of them seemed to have tried. It must be because the whole communication system has been disabled. It must take some effort if the pilot tried to disable the system. The co-pilot would notice and for his own life he would have tried to do something. Was he disabled? Were all the crew members and the passengers disabled!

The flight of all passenger planes can be tracked even on a personal mobile phone. I can do it on my phone. If the plane landed I can watch it landing and taxiing. I can even get information on any plane anywhere - what make and model, who it belongs to and where it is flying from and its destination.

I believe there are equipments on the plane which allows it to be tracked – probably by Global Position System.

Sophisticated cameras on the spy-satellites operated by some countries can actually photograph a man on the ground and even identify him. Surely the cameras can see and photograph a 63-metre aircraft.

But the aircraft disappeared completely. I think on everyone’s mobile it has disappeared. Some equipment on the aircraft must have been disabled. Even the backup must have been disabled.

Boeing built this aircraft. Boeing must explain how all these means of tracking the plane can be disabled, can fail. Either Boeing technology is poor or it is not fail-safe. I would not like to fly in Boeing aircraft unless Boeing can explain how all its system can fail or be disabled.

Remote control technology is now very sophisticated and powerful. Is it true that Boeing has installed remote control equipment of the aircraft to prevent hijacking. If it did why did it not direct the aircraft to land safely. Is it possible for third parties to take control of the aircraft remotely?

When a plane crashes on land or sea there would be debris or oil slick. None has been found so far. Can it be that the plane remained intact on crashing and sank with no trace and no one launching the lifeboat doors as we are told all these aircrafts are equipped with.

Can one believe this plane quietly floated down into the raging sea and sank conveniently in the deepest part (7miles deep) of the Indian Ocean.

It is standard practice that when a plane crashes, a team of experts would arrive at the scene soonest so as to find the cause of the crash.  Boeing and the authorities in the manufacturing country should be looking out for the plane.  Maybe the plane type should be grounded.  But Boeing has shown no interest and had said practically nothing.

MAS has been flying numerous kinds of aircrafts and has a good record. The pilots are well-trained. Even if the pilot wants to commit suicide the co-pilot and the cabin crew would not allow him to do so without trying something.  But no one, not even the passengers did anything.  Maybe it is because they have been somehow incapacitated.

Boeing must answer all these questions.  Boeing must demonstrate possible ways for the communications system to be disabled.  Boeing must accept responsibility for building an aircraft that can disappear in mid-air so completely.

MAS is not at fault, lax security or not.  MAS flew a plane fully expecting it to perform the task.  But the plane has somehow behaved differently.  Who is responsible. Not MAS but certainly the makers of the plane – Boeing Aircraft Corporation.
