This is getting very creepy!
Earlier this week we shared facts about the missing Malaysia Airlines Flight MH370 and now, new evidence is suggesting that the plane’s disappearance may not be an accident.
Two U.S. officials told ABC News that two modes of communication were “systematically shut down,” suggesting that the plane did not come out of the sky due to a malfunction or accident. They believe the data reporting system was shut down at 1:07 a.m. and the transponder, which transmits location and altitude, was shut down at 1:21 a.m.
U.S. officials have indication that the missing plane may have crashed in the Indian Ocean and is moving the USS Kidd to the area to begin a search. Senior administration officials have reported that the plane continued to ping a satellite on an hourly basis after it lost contact with radar. Boeing 777 jetliners are equipped with an Airplane Health Management system that causes it to ping a satellite every hour. The number of pings would indicate how long the plane stayed in the air. It’s not clear whether or not the pings indicate location as well.
