Radar readings show flight MH370 off course in its destination to Beijing from Kuala Lumpur. Ottowa Citizen reports March 12 that the readings revealed the Malaysian Airlines plane had turned and flown west. With the Boeing 777's transponder and tracking systems switched off, it is making it especially tricky for investigators to learn what happened to all 239 passengers and crew.
The Malaysian Airlines jetliner went missing Sunday morning and no trace of the aircraft has emerged.
A senior military official was informed of the recent developments.
“It changed course after Kota Baharu and took a lower altitude. It made it into the Malacca Strait,” said the official.
The last point of contact with the flight was at the Gulf of Thailand between Malaysia and Vietnam. The MH370 off course speculations have grown considerably. Highly advanced aircraft sensors have been unable to detect anything whatsoever.
Reports of MH370 being spotted 30,000 feet over the other side of the country where one of the busiest shopping channels in the world is. That means it could have flown back over Malaysia and over the sea.
It could be months before authorities and officials have the complete story on this Malaysian Airlines plane. Did MH370 fly off course somewhere no one has thought of?
