Good Night. First Officer: 32R, Cleared for Takeoff, MH370. Thank You. Bye. V1 After Takeoff, The Pilots are instructed to tune into Lumpur Radar ATC, The frequency used for en route air traffic Kuala Lumpur Tower: MH370, contact Lumpur Radar, 132.6. Good Night. Captain: Night. 132.6. Malaysia 370. 12:46 AM 12:46 AM
The Boeing 777 is climbing to 35,000 FT Lumpur Radar: Malaysia 370, climb to flight level 350 Lumpur Radar: Malaysia 370, climb to flight level 350
Captain: Climb flight level 350, Malaysia 370 Minutes later , Flight 370 reaches its cruising altitude of 35,000 FT Captain: Maintaining flight level 350, Malaysia 370 1:19 AM 1:19 AM
As the aircraft leaves Malaysian airspace, Lumpur Radar transfers the plane over to the Ho Chi Minh Area Control Center Lumpur Radar: Malaysia 370, contact Ho Chi Minh, 120.9. Good Night. Lumpur Radar: Malaysia 370, contact Ho Chi Minh, 120.9. Good Night.
Captain: Malaysia 370, Good Night. One minute later, MH370’S MODE-S symbol disappears from Lumur Radar screens MH370 later disappears from both Lumpur Radar and Ho Chi Minh ‘s radar screens The transponder of the aircraft has stopped working Despite disappearing in civilian secondary radar, MH370 is still being tracked by military radar Just the moment in which the transponder stopped working , the Boeing 777 makes a turn to the right and then it makes a left turn towards south west Current Direction: South West 1:30 AM 1:30 AM
Another aircraft attempts to make a radio contact with MH370 using the international distress frequency 1:31 AM
It successfully establishes comunication with the palne although he could only hear “Mumbling and Static” Between 1:30 AM and 1:35 AM, Military radar detects flight 370 flying at 35,700FT and heading 231 The aircraft continues to fly over the malay peninsula, with its altitude fluctuating between 33,000FT and 31,000FT The sultan ismail airport’s radar detects an unidentified aircraft 4 times, probably MH370 between 1:30 and 1:52 AM 1:52 AM 1:52 AM
Malaysia Airlines Flight 370 is detected flying south of Penang Island Then, the plane makes another right turn towards north-west Current Direction: North-West 2:03 AM 2:03 AM
The aircraft crosses the straight of Malacca close to Perak Island 2:22 AM
Flight 370 is detected as being 438km northwest of Penang Airport and flying at 29,500FT THIS IS THE LAST KNOWN LOCATION OF MALAYSIA AIRLINES FLIGHT 370 The aircraft makes antoher turn left towards south Current Direction: South 2:25 AM
The aircraft’s satelite communication system sends a login request to Inmarsat 2:25 AM
After logging on to the network the aircraft responds to hourly status requests from Inmarsat in a series of “Handshakes” 2:39 AM
Inmarsat ,akes a Ground to Aircraft phone call to the cockpit but no one answers 3:41 AM
The Boeing 777 makes a second handshake initiated by Inmarsat’s ground station 4:41 AM
The Aircraft makes a third handshake initiated by Inmarsat’s ground station 5:41 AM
The plane makes a fourth handshake initiated by Inmarsats ground station 6:41 AM
The Aircraft makes a fifth handshake initiated by Inmarsats ground station At 7:13 AM, Inmarsat makes a second Ground to Aircraft phone call, in which no one answers 8:10AM
The Aircraft makes a sixth handshake initiated by Inmarsats ground station 9 minutes later, the Boeing 777 makes a seventh handshake, initiated by the aircraft itself This last handshake was incompletand was the last transmition from Malaysia Airlines Flight 370 At this point, it is presumed that the aircraft has run out of fuel EVENTUALLY, MH370 CRASHES INTO THE OCEAN Malaysia Airlines Flight 370 is presumed to have crashed somewhere in the southern Indian ocean The multi national search for the aircraft soon became the largest and mostt expensive in aviation history More than 120,000 square kilometres of seabed were searched without finding any evidence The search was stopped on January 17, 2017 A few pieces of the aircraft have been found ashore in reunion island, near Madagascar, but the wreckage’s were far too few too determine what happened to the plane The disapperance of flight 370 brought attention to the limit of aircraft tracking This included issues that were brought up following the disapperance of air france flight 447 in 2009, but never mandated Following the disapperance of air france flight 447 the international civil aviation organisation adopted new standards for aircraft position reporting over open oceans This included extending the recording tie for flight recorders
in addition, by 2020, icao will require new aircraft designs to have the means of recovering the recorders or the information they contain, before they sink into the water Flight 370 still remains the biggest aviation mysteries of all times In memory of the passengers and crew of Malaysia Airline Flight 370 Created By
