Unsettling cockpit audio from MH370 reveals flight's final communication

Unsettling cockpit audio from MH370 reveals flight's final communication

It's been an entire decade since the Malaysian Airlines flight went missing

It’s been a whole decade since flight MH370 went missing.

On 8 March 2014 the Malaysian Airlines flight was flying over the South China Sea from Kuala Lumpur on route to Beijing.

But the plane completely disappeared from air traffic control radars with 239 passengers and crew on board.

With the missing plane being one of the biggest ever unsolved aviation mysteries to this day, the BBC marked the anniversary with a documentary, Why Planes Vanish: The Hunt for MH370.

The doc features interviews with relatives of the missing as well as a range of experts and former employees as it tried to piece together just what happened to the flight.

While the relatives never heard from their missing family members again, they did hear an unsettling cockpit audio from the flight’s final communication.

The recording was initially played for the families in late April 2014 before being shared publicly by Malaysia.

This chilling communication seems to sound like regular radio talk between an airplane and ground control, as the identifying number of the flight is repeated.

A voice identified by Malaysian officials as that of a radio controller in Kuala Lumpur can be heard saying: “Malaysia three-seven-zero contact Ho Chi Minh 120.9, good night.”

A male voice from the cockpit of the plane replies: “Good night, Malaysian three-seven-zero.”

It's been a decade since it went missing.

The recording was released more than 50 days after the flight vanished in a briefing with the passengers’ relatives, many of whom are Chinese, CNN reported at the time.

Now, Ocean Infinity claims to have found new evidence in the search for the missing MH370.

The Texas company which uses robotic technology to obtain information from the ocean and seabed, claims to have scientific evidence of MH370's final resting place.

It has proposed a 'no-cure, no-fee' search to the Malaysian government, in which it will only be paid if it secures a positive outcome.

Ocean Infinity CEO Oliver Plunkett said: "We now feel in a position to be able to return to the search for MH370, and have submitted a proposal to the Malaysian government.

"Finding MH370 and bringing some resolution for all connected with the loss of the aircraft has been a constant in our minds since we left the southern Indian Ocean in 2018.

"Since then, we have focused on driving the transformation of operations at sea; innovating with technology and robotics to further advance our ocean search capabilities."
