From the time flight MH370 went missing, the nations involved in its search have been out of step - in particular Malaysia and Vietnam.
Vietnam was quick to contribute its resources to the search effort and even quicker to make public each potential development. They promptly announced everything from reported radar readings to oil slick sightings and possible floating debris.
Just to be clear, I don't think the plane was cloaked.. I believe it was hijacked.
It was hijacked because the Chinese government wanted to kidnap the engineers who were working on cloaking technology and put them to use for their own military.
On Tuesday, three days after the plane disappeared while on an overnight flight to Beijing, the country’s air force chief, Gen. Rodzali Daud, was quoted in a Malaysian newspaper as saying the military received signals on Saturday that after the aircraft stopped communicating with ground controllers, it turned from heading northeast to heading west, lowered its altitude and flew hundreds of miles across Peninsular Malaysia and out over the Strait of Malacca before the tracking went blank.
According to the general’s account, the aircraft was near Pulau Perak, an island more than 100 miles off the western shore of the Malaysian peninsula, when the last sign of it was recorded at 2:40 a.m. Saturday.
Malaysia Airlines had yet to confirm that the aircraft had crashed. It said earlier in the day that no distress signal had been given and cited early speculation that the plane may have landed in Nanming in southern China.
One Vietnamese rescue official announced the missing Malaysian plane's signal has been detected, according to the latest information released by Xinhua News Agency.
The official told local VNExpress that the aircraft's signal has been detected at some 120 nautical miles southwest of Vietnam's southernmost Ca Mau province.
