Messages from the pilot of missing Malaysia Airlines flight MH370 have revealed a creepy man who obsessed over twin sister models' social media profiles.

Captain Zaharie Ahmad Shah was the pilot-in-command when the plane carrying 238 other passengers and crew vanished in March 2014.

But his social media activities have been revealed on Sunday, giving an insight into the mental status of a man psychologists say was 'self-destructive'.

In the 12 months before the Boeing 777 went missing, Zaharie stalked the Facebook pages of Malaysian twin sister models, leaving sexually suggestive comments.

Throughout 2013, the 53-year-old made 97 separate Facebook comments directed at Qi Min Lan.

A vast majority of his messages were ignored.

'When in KL,' he wrote in another.

'How about KL?' he persisted, but got no reply.

In another, where Qi Min Lan posted a photo of herself in a bathrobe, he wrote: 'Just shower?'

Zaharie was described as 'kind' and 'easy going' by his friends, but his social media reveals a reckless side of the pilot, the Daily Telegraph reports.

On top of his obsessive messages to the girls, Zaharie frequently criticised the Malaysian government, which happens to own the airline he worked for.

In April 2013, leading up to the Malaysian elections, Zaharie posted 119 times, all in reflection of his disgust with the Naijb government. 

The following month, after the Najib party secured another five-year term, Zaharie wrote: 'There is a rebel in each and every one of us. Let it out!'

Aviation expert Geoffrey Thomas, editor-in-chief of airlineratings.com, said it was alarming for a senior pilot to make political comments at all. 

'It should have raised serious alarm bells with the airline that you have someone flying who has such strong anti-government views,' said Mr Thomas.

'If a Qantas pilot did something like that, he would be spoken to and grounded.'

One popular theory, which came about only weeks after the plane went missing, was that Zaharie planned and executed a mass murder due to personal problems. 

The last communication from the plane was from Captain Zaharie Ahmad Shah who signed off with 'Good night, Malaysian three seven zero', as the plane left the Malaysian airspace.
