U.S. Says Plane Flew On For Hours, Malaysia Says It Didn’t


malaysia-plane2Today, the Malaysian government rejected a report in TheWall Street Journal that U.S. investigators believe Malaysia Airlines Flight 370 was in the air for four hours after its last confirmed location. The report had cited flight data from the plane’s engines that are automatically transmitted.

“These reports are inaccurate. The last transmission was at 01:07, which indicated that everything was normal,” Malaysia’s acting Transport Minister Hishammuddin Hussein told a news conference.

The CEO of Malaysia Airlines also said that Rolls-Royce and Boeing “did not receive any further transmissions after the last transmission at 01:07.”

In addition, while reports had surfaced of satellite images showing three large objects in the waters south of Vietnam, Malaysia’s civil aviation chief told the press, “There is nothing. We went there, there is nothing.” Read more at the Washington Post.

  1. I don’t know if you’ll believe me. But, let me tell you the thought process that just went on in my head. I just glanced at the video of the day section & thought exactly that in my head “when will they post some Purim videos, as they usually do..? Anyway I’m thinking that I want to send this message to the editors.. But, like how exactly? I don’t know of any other way than like posting comments under a specific news post.. so I’m thinking maybe that’s how I should go about posting my request, and I’m looking through the latest posts trying to decide which post would pull me to post such a comment; when I come across this post of “U.S Says Plane…”. & I’m thinking ” I wonder what comment someone could’ve posted on this topic, & I’m trying to figure out if I’m reading correctly.. I see your post about the absence of Purim videos, & I’m like is this Hashgacha? I mean I could use hashgacha for other more important things; but. it’s like I should’ve thought of Maschiach or something..
