No real details there, but presumably this is something other than the runways just existing in the simulator.

I'm intrigued by these details:

All of those waypoints would be in the FMC's navigation database. Will need to find appropriate High Enroute Charts to get a better mental picture.

IMHO finding simulations of those Indian Ocean runways on the simulator should not ring alarm bells ... at least not yet. I'd be interested to know how frequently he ran those simulations and how recently he ran them. Did he run simulations for other runways around the world regularly? Why did the 5 runways stand out?

LOL i understand I might be stating the obvious ... so pls do moderate & delete if necessary. It'll give me some guidance ;)

Interesting insight into the route taken. Why go to waypoint Gival and not directly to Igrex?

I think the article mentioned (...or speculating, the article actually was...) that the airplane flew "towards" GIVAL (we always capitalize aviation waypoints, VORs, etc). In the "SkyVector" image I just took the four waypoints mentioned and the website drew the lines between them. Not meant to represent any actual path of the jet, it was for visual orientation of the region and geography.

It looks like we'll have to wait until they figure out what was deleted from the captain's homemade flight simulator. I think it comes down to two options:
1). It's something damning that connects the captain to hijacking the flight, or
2) it's just routine deleting of files and means nothing. Dead end.

Could there be other possibilities?

If there was any pre-planning that involved more than just the pilot's whim then there should be some form of communication trail.
If he was planning to put down at another runway then the runway personnel have to be in on it if they meant to hide it, meaning there has to be some kind of organising going on, it would leave a trail.
Nothing like that seems to be coming to light.

I don't find t suspicious that those airports were on the simulator. If you look at the Malaysian Airlines route map, there is a strong correlation. It looks like a conscientious pilot practicing arrivals into airports he either uses or could use as an alternate.

Thanks WeedWhacker. I see this plane flew often between Kuala Lumpur and Amsterdam. Is it likely that there was a flight plan stored in rte2 for that route? (probably belong in speculations thread)

Rte 2 is used for different things by different pilots. It can be changed throughout a flight. On take off a pilot may have an expeditious return to the departure airport programmed there in case of an emergency. Enroute there may be the track to the nearest company alternate or a depressurisation route for when flying over mountainous areas. On arrival there may be different arrivals/runways to cope with ATC instructions.
It is used every flight for contingency planning.

All info in the volatile memory (such as any current flight plan info) is dumped whenever power is turned off. Just like any computer.
