Last Communication of Disappeared Malayisian Plane Revealed
Everything was normal before Malaysia Airlines Flight MH370 went missing over the South China Sea.
Malaysian authorities announced this after its crew's last words to the country's air control were revealed.
They were "All right, roger that," a reply to a radio message from the air control service, as , the BBC reports.
The new information adds up to the mystery surrounding Malaysia Airlines Flight MH370, with 239 people on board, took off from the capital Kuala Lumpur, but mysteriously vanished from radar early on Saturday, somewhere between Malaysia and Vietnam, while en route to Beijing.
Tuesday's reports claiming that the plane had been tracked to the Malacca Strait in the west were denied by Malaysian air force.
Search for any wreckage of the aircraft that might have crashed somewhere at sea has entered its fifth day, but with no debris found by Malaysian, Vietnamese, Chinese and US aircraft and ships that take part in the operation covering 92 000 sq km.
Neither terrorism nor sabotage have yet been ruled out as explanations for the incident, and an air turn-back is still considered possible.
On Tuesday, Malaysian authorities announced two Iranians that were travelling on stolen European passports had no affiliation to terrorist groups, thus reducing the likelihood of a terror plot.
