Malaysia Airlines Flight MH370

Radar tracked plane over western Malaysia

11 Mar, 2014

Malaysian Air Force Chief Rodzali Daud allegedly says that military radar detected the flight going westward, not east as it was supposed to, over the Malacca Strait, a busy shipping channel on Malaysia’s west coast. The plane was flying 1,000 feet lower than it had been. Daud immediately issues a statement denying that he said anything of the sort to local reporters, but additional sources say that radar at a military base tracked the flight to Pulau Perak, an island at the end of the Malacca Strait. CNN Wire tweets:

More on #MH370: If new data is correct, plane was on the opposite side of Malay Peninsula from its scheduled route.

According to an unnamed official,

[The plane] changed course after Kota Bharu and took a lower altitude. It made it into the Malacca Strait.
