I found this information to further add to the intrigue of the airliner that disappeared. I am not bothering to format it. It came to my inbox. -Sharda-
Missing Malaysia Airlines Plane: Military tracked flight MH370 to West before it Vanished
The Malaysian air force says radar information indicates a passenger plane veered off course and headed west before it vanished with 239 people on board. Interpol has all but ruled out terrorism as the cause for the missing Malaysia Airlines plane, which disappeared on Saturday while travelling from Kuala Lumpur to Beijing, but the CIA is not so sure.
Secondary radar interrogates the transponder and gets information about the plane's identity, speed and height.
The Strait of Malacca, one of the world's busiest shipping channels, runs along Malaysia's west coast.
