In a strange twist, Malaysia's military believes it tracked the missing Malaysia Airlines flight MH370 by radar over the Strait of Malacca, far from where it last made contact with civilian air traffic control over the Gulf of Thailand.A military source confirmed with Reuters that the Boeing 777-200ER with 239 on board changed course and made it to the other side of the Malay peninsula."It changed course after Kota Baru and took a lower altitude. It made it into the Malacca Strait," the military official, who has been briefed on investigations, told Reuters.
Update: Malaysian military now reveals that the plane reappeared elsewhere
The gist of the story is that one hour after it disappeared it reappeared on military radar over the island of Pulau Perak.
After disappearing, the plane changed course, apparently having turned off its transponder and tracking equipment. So there is actually a chance that it did crash into the ocean but may have been hijacked. The mystery deepens.
