NEWS Opinion: ICAO’s MH370 Response Misses Core Issue

Almost exactly one year ago, Malaysia Airlines Flight 370 disappeared en route from Kuala Lumpur to Beijing. The Boeing 777-200ER seemed to be on a routine night flight up north, and there were no indications that something onboard would go very wrong. Then, on March 8, 2014, at 1:21 a.m. local time, the aircraft disappeared from secondary radar just before the IGARI waypoint off the Malaysian coast. It later reappeared on Thai and Malaysian military radar, but was lost again at 2:22 a.m. A last full-satcom ping from the aircraft registered at 8:11 a.m., more than 1-hr. after the 777 should have landed in Beijing. Malaysia recently declared all 239 people aboard dead.
