The pilot of a Boeing Singapore who fell in a swamp in Indonesia three years ago would have made the plunge deliberately , in an apparent suicide plane, according to American researchers of the accident . There were no survivors among the 104 people aboard .The conclusion contradicts the Indonesian researchers , whose report , released this week , says there is no way to explain what happened .According to the National Transportation Safety Board of the U.S. , the Boeing - 737 SilkAir not had mechanical failure and drop " can be explained by intentional pilot action " .The Silk Air plane crashed into the Musi river in the jungle of Sumatra , during a regular flight from Jakarta to Singapore on December 19, 1997 . The circumstances of the episode caused bewilderment from the beginning. In a clear sky , the plane crashed in an almost vertical dive from an altitude of 10,600 meters . The experts found that the voice and data recorders of the cabin had been turned off half a minute before the plane started to dive .According to the 200-page report of the Indonesian National Committee for transport security , because " the highly fragmented wreckage and the almost total absence of data, information and useful clues , the committee is obliged to conclude that the technical investigation found nothing to explain the cause of the accident . "But the U.S. report states that the wreckage showed that their engines were operating at high power at impact and that the controls had been willing to make the plane dive ." The plane left the cruise flight as a result of an intentional maneuver that would have required prolonged efforts to control the flight and most likely would have been performed by the master ," says the report .
The pilot of the aircraft, the Singaporean Tsu Way Ming , had debts of shares outstanding and high bills in the credit card market . Also, could not honor a loan.Tsu had lost a new job as a flight instructor in June of that year , after an incident in which disabled a voice recorder of an airplane during a flight .Days before the disaster he had bought an insurance policy for $ 1 million insurance and indicated his wife as beneficiary .The most mysterious and evocative of all was the discovery of an incident that occurred years before , when the commander was Tsu aerobatics pilot in the Singapore Air Force . On December 19, 1979 , four of his fellow pilots were killed when they collide with a mountain shrouded in clouds in the Philippines . Tsu only survived because a mechanical problem forced him to return with his plane .
Nevertheless , the Indonesian investigation found no evidence " indicating that the pilot, co - pilot or crew member had suicidal tendencies or some reason to cause the accident ."Allegations of suicide pilots - and the implication that highly trained staff of airlines can also be killers always generate controversy . A year ago , when an Egyptair Boeing crashed into the Atlantic during a flight that departed New York , claims that the fall was caused by suicide pilot infuriated Cairo to the point that it came to be discussed in person by the governments of U.S. and Egypt.
