Jet cockpit transcript released

Kuala Lumpur, April 1: Radio communications between the cockpit of Malaysia Airlines Flight 370 and air traffic controllers before the plane disappeared early on March 8 provide no apparent indication why the plane vanished over the Indian Ocean, according to a transcript released today by the Malaysian authorities.

The transcript covers about 54 minutes, from just before the Boeing 777-200 pushed back from the gate at Kuala Lumpur International Airport to the last words from the cockpit with air traffic personnel in Malaysia before they lost contact with the plane around 1.19am as it was approaching Vietnamese airspace.

Malaysian officials have said that the actions of the plane suggested that someone onboard had deliberately diverted it.
