    Search location for Malaysia Airlines 370 doesn't match flight data


    Where they are looking and saying the plane went down doesn't match flight data.

    Last known coordinates for flight MAS 370 place it over mountainous central Malaysia, 20 miles due east of Mount Tahan (see point on map, lat 4.7073 lon 102.5278). It had just switched from reporting to Sultan Abdul Aziz Shah airport near where it had taken off in southwestern Malaysia to Penang International Airport in central west Malaysia. Nothing places the flight near Vietnam or Vietnamese airspace at the time it ceased communications.

    This according to real-time flight data available online on sources such as FlightAware.


    Based on this data, a much more likely location to search would be the Kenyir Lake region and surroundings.
