Emails from Captain Zaharie: Do you really think this man is a terrorist?

Sharelor got in touch with Thanos Kontogiannis, moderator of the X-Sim.de motion simulator forums where MH370 pilot Captain Zaharie shared his passion for flight simulation. 

Here is what Thanos said to Sharelor:
“I believe a terrorist wouldn’t be quite as open as Captain Zaharie with his love and passion for flight simulations. Many commercial airline pilots from all over the world contact me for help in adding motion to their home made simulators that share the same interest as Captain Zaharie. I don’t see that as a “threat”, I see that as “for the love of flying.” Let me point out one thing, race car drivers have motion simulators in their homes as well. Will they be deemed terrorists too?”

Captain Zaharie contacted Thanos in 2013 asking for electronics to be added to his home flight simulator. They have exchanged hundreds of emails and we are sharing some of them below:
