Hello? MH370 Calling…
Written by jbinner on April 13, 2014
he pilot of Malaysia Airlines flight 370 reportedly made a phone call that ‘was abruptly cut off’ before the plane mysteriously vanished. Could this new development be the proof needed to confirm the plane’s possible hijacking?
Investigators have learned that a possible life or death phone call was attempted by Fariq Abdul Hamid’s cell just as the Boeing 777 flew near the island of Penang, on the northern side of Malaysia’s western most coast, on March 8.
The New Straits Times says that the aircraft transporting 239 passengers, was flying low enough for the nearest telecommunications tower to pick up Fariq’s signal, reports the Daily Mail.
However, the call ended abruptly, and it has been revealed that contact was definitely established with a telecommunications sub-station in Penang state, according to The News Straits Times.
The paper went on to report that “the telco’s (telecommunications company’s) tower” facilitated his call’s connection.
“On the why the call was cut off, it was likely because the aircraft was fast-moving away from the tower and had not come under the coverage of the next one,” the paper added, quoting“sources.”
