SEPANG: A BOEING 777 pilot, who was flying 30 minutes ahead of the missing Malaysia Airlines aircraft, said he established contact with MH370 minutes after he was asked to do so by Vietnamese air traffic control.
The captain, who asked to not be named, said his plane, which was bound for Narita, Japan, was far into Vietnamese airspace when he was asked to relay, using his plane's emergency frequency, to MH370 for the latter to establish its position, as the authorities could not contact the aircraft.
"We managed to establish contact with MH370 just after 1.30am and asked them if they have transferred into Vietnamese airspace.
"The voice on the other side could have been either Captain Zaharie (Ahmad Shah, 53,) or Fariq (Abdul Hamid, 27), but I was sure it was the co-pilot.
"There were a lot of interference... static... but I heard mumbling from the other end.
"That was the last time we heard from them, as we lost the connection," he told the New Sunday Times.

Yesterday I read on here thst this is a false story. Is it?
If that map is anywhere near accurate, the plane would have just recently reached cruising altitude when contact was lost.
Yep, a coincidence.
oxygen deficiency incapacitated the crew?
TICKET AGENT: "Yes"
TRAVELER: "I'M OUTTA HERE!!"
What if Al qaida wanted to steal a commercial aircraft?
How would you go about it?
Anyone ever see the sci-fi movie, “Millenium”? That might explain it.
reminds me of a Tom Clancy novel, about a Japanese who commandeers a 747 and crashes it into Congress I think it was.
And that was WW2 internment revenge.
What if the plane has landed, all passengers removed, plane is filled with HE and then is flown directly into an American target, an airbase, carrier etc.
Isn’t that what happened to Payne Stewart and company?
yes, but- if the plane was on autopilot, it should have kept flying. Payne Stewart’s plane with dead crew and pax flew almost cross country before it crashed out of fuel
unless they realized something was wrong and co pilot tried to manually turn around and then passed out- just explains maybe the mumbling
Or better yet, an old Glenn Ford movie,
This underscores the eternal confounding problem with time, time zones and the public understanding of WHAT?
I understand that "reporters" are science and technology imbeciles, generally, and are incapable of asking the critical question when a "fact" is reported.
The "time' when contact with Flight MH370 was "lost" has been all over the place. And this is of paramount importance to verify that the search is ongoing anywhere near where the incident occurred.
Duh..... they are Malaysian. What did you expect?
Malaysia is a muslim country.
When these bizarre fanatical Muslim suicide bombers strike , they don’t seem to care if they kill innocent fellow Muslims.
An F-16 had intercepted Payne Stewart’a plane and saw that all the windows had frosted over, an indication of sudden decompression resulting in hypoxia. Stewart’s plane continued flying until it ran out of fuel. Everyone who was on board that plane was probably already dead due to hypoxia before it finally crashed.
