One year after the disappearance of Malaysia Airlines Flight 370, a factual document issued by the Malaysian Ministry of Transport to fulfill its obligations under ICAO Annex 13 has shed new light on the partial primary radar traces obtained after MH370’s secondary surveillance radar mode ceased to function. It also exposed failings in communications and procedures at Kuala Lumpur (KUL) Area Control Centre (ACC) and Malaysia Airlines (MAS) Operations Control Center (OCC). The director-general of the country’s Department of Civil Aviation (DCA), Dato Azharuddin Abdul Rahman, elaborated on the findings with a long presentation during a conference at the Langkawi International Maritime and Aerospace Exhibition (LIMA) last week.
