Nik Huzlan, a former pilot of Malaysia Airlines, talks to a China Daily reporter in Malaysia. He is a previous classmate of Captain Zaharie, chief pilot of the missing flight MH370 and he has been flying Boeing 777 for ten years.

Nik speaks highly of the pilot and says he was absolutely gobsmacked when hearing the news.

"I've known him (Captain Zaharie) since 1979. He is a very kind man and never got himself in any trouble before. He likes planes and never failed any class in school. I don't think he is the hijacker," He said.
