Malaysia Airlines Flight MH370

Last automated transmission

8 Mar, 2014

The plane sends its last radio transmission, a routine call via an onboard text-and-data messaging system known as the Aircraft and Communications Addressing and Reporting System, or ACARS. The aircraft is just crossing the eastern Malaysian coastline and beginning to fly over the South China Sea.
