Experts: planes in cruise phase rarely experience problems

Hong Kong aviation experts said that the pilot and first officer on Flight 370 probably had autopilot engaged when the plane disappeared from view.
The Beijing-bound Boeing 777 would have been at cruise stage at the time that contact was lost, given the ideal weather conditions. Two hours into the journey, it would have been flying at 1,000 km/h (621 mph) and at an altitude of 11,000 meters (36,000 feet). According to the flight operations manager at the Hong Kong Government Flying Service, it’s bizarre that the plane would have disappeared because there’s practically nothing for a pilot to do at that stage except maneuver left or right. He said multiple failures would have to take place for the autopilot to not work.
The wreckage has not yet been found and there are no beacons emitting signals.
The above article is a summary. Please see the source article at Google News.
