Transcript of MH370 Flight
Malaysia Airlines Flight was a scheduled international passenger flight from Kuala Lumpur International Airport to Beijing Capital International Airport. On 8 March 2014 at 01:20 MYT, the aircraft flying the route, a Boeing 777-200ER, was last heard from by Subang Air Traffic Control, less than an hour after takeoff. At 07:24, Malaysia Airlines reported the aircraft as missing. It was carrying 12 Malaysian crew members and 227 passengers from 14 nations.

A multi-national search and rescue effort, later reported as the largest in history, was initiated in the Gulf of Thailand and the South China Sea. Within a few days, this was extended to include the Strait of Malacca and Andaman Sea. On 15 March, based on military radar data and radio "pings" between the aircraft and an Inmarsat satellite, investigators concluded that it had first headed west across the Malay Peninsula, then continued on a northern or southern track for approximately seven hours. The search in the South China Sea was abandoned. Three days later the Australian Maritime Safety Authority began searching the southern part of the Indian Ocean.
Since 22 March, marine debris was recovered on almost a daily basis from the search area in the southern part of the Indian Ocean - but none of it was related to Flight 370; and although search vessel ADV Ocean Shield detected acoustic signals consistent with those emitted by underwater locator beacons mounted on flight recorders on 5 and 8 April, there has been no confirmation of a crash site.
Using a type of analysis never before used in an investigation of this sort... Inmarsat and the AAIB have concluded that MH370 flew along the southern corridor, and that its last position was in the middle of the Indian Ocean, west of Perth. This is a remote location, far from any possible landing sites. It is therefore with deep sadness and regret that I must inform you that, according to this new data, flight MH370 ended in the southern Indian Ocean.
