Satellite Says Plane Kept Flying

    People look at Malaysia Airlines planes at Kuala Lumpur International Airport March 13, 2014. Search planes found no sign on Thursday of the missing Malaysia Airlines aircraft, Flight MH370, in an area where satellite images had shown debris, taking the as-yet fruitless hunt into the sixth day.

    Information from the signals sent by the Malaysia Airlines Flight 370 that was lost last week showed the plane kept flying for up to five hours after its last known location, investigators suspect. The jet dropped from radar screens, but its satellite uplink was operating in standby mode "saying I'm here, I'm ready to send data." The Malaysian government has denied this new information, saying, “These reports are inaccurate. The last transmission was at 01:07, which indicated that everything was normal.” While reports had surfaced of satellite images showing three large objects in the waters south of Vietnam, Malaysia’s civil aviation chief told the press, “There is nothing. We went there, there is nothing.” Meanwhile, the U.S. is investigating a theory that the plane was diverted and its transponders were shut off.
