The captain of vanished Malaysia Airlines airplane MH370 had planned to migrate to Australia with his wife before the ill-fated flight disappeared with 239 people aboard, relatives have revealed.
The Australian reports Captain Zaharie Ahmad Shah wanted to retire at age 60 in Geelong, Victoria, where his daughter Aishah was working.
'Zaharie wanted to migrate to Australia. He even asked his daughter to buy a house there and gave her money to do it. The moment he disappeared, that plan ended,' the pilot's brother-in-law Asuad Khan Mustafa told the paper.
Zaharie was captain when the jetliner disappeared in March 2014 while on a flight from the Malaysian capital Kuala Lumpur to Beijing.
