Missing Flight MH370 May Have Turned South Sooner
(CNN) — Another small piece of information has been released in the disappearance of Malaysia Airlines Flight 370.
A failed satellite phone call suggests the missing passenger jet may have turned south slightly earlier than previously thought, Australian authorities said Thursday. Ground staff tried to make contact with the plane after it dropped off radar on March 8.
Subsequent analysis of the failed call has given experts a better idea of the aircraft’s position and where it was traveling.
The latest analysis of the available data has put more focus on the southern parts of the designated search area in the Indian Ocean.
MH370 disappeared with 239 people on board during a flight from Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia to Beijing. The massive search operation has so far turned up no debris from the plane.
