Learn More About MH370 Pilots

After interviews with friends and family, The Wall Street Journal's Mark Magnier has more background about the pilots of Flight 370.

Writing for that paper, Magnier starts: "One came of age hanging out in bars with hotshot young pilots and sang "Hotel California" at karaoke sessions. The other drove a black Audi and dabbled in guitar."

His profile of Capt. Zaharie Ahmad Shah and 1st Officer Fariq Ab Hamid, respectively, sheds a bit more light on the personal lives of the two men, but it gives no more answers about what happened to the missing plane.

On "New Day" Monday, the journalist described the lead pilot as modest.

"When he would introduce himself at events he wouldn't tell people he was a pilot, that says quite a bit," Magnier said.
