Malaysian military officials say the missing Malaysia Airlines plane made a U-turn about 40 minutes after taking off from Kuala Lumpur early Saturday morning. Flight MH370 suddenly vanished from civilian radar at 35,000 feet and descended about 600 feet. Military radar shows the plane flying in a westerly direction hundreds of miles off course, and at a low altitude for about an hour before the military radar lost track of it.
This is an interesting development because it means someone in the cockpit turned the transponder off. The transponder sends transmissions about the plane’s location to air traffic control radar.
Ships and planes from 10 countries are participating in the search for the plane. Officials are ruling out terrorism. Flight MH370 was carrying 227 passengers and 12 crew members when it disappeared.
