Former pilot: Missing plane's deliberate course is telling

(CNN) – As part of the investigation into missing Malaysia Airlines Flight 370, officials are looking into concerns that lithium batteries in the cargo hold, which have been blamed in previous crashes, could have played a role in the disappearance, according to U.S. officials briefed on the latest intelligence and law enforcement developments in the investigation. The officials spoke on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to release details to the media.

But even with this new information, former commercial and corporate pilot Anthony Roman is still leaning towards this being a "man made" event, saying the plane's deliberate course indicates somebody was still in control.

Check out our interview with Roman in the video above.
