Flight 370 Changed Course

    This  picture taken aboard a Vietnamese Air Force Russian-made MI-171 helicopter shows a crew member in the cockpit during a search flight some 200 km over the southern Vietnamese waters off Vietnam's island Phu Quoc on March 11, 2014 as part of continued efforts aimed at finding traces of the missing Malaysia Airlines MH370. Malaysian police said on March 11 one of two suspect passengers who boarded a missing passenger jet was an Iranian illegal immigrant, as relatives of some of the 239 people on board said they were losing hope for a miracle.

    The Malaysian military said Wednesday that Malaysia Airlines Flight 370 went off course but denies that the plane made it to the Straits of Malacca, contradicting an earlier report. "I wish to state that I did not make any such statements," air force chief Rodzali Daud said. The plane's transponder that communicates location does not appear to have been broadcasting. What a mess.
