Malaysia’s defense and transportation department has released the full transcript of communications between the pilots of Malaysia Airlines flight MH370 and Kuala Lumpur air traffic control. There is no indication of anything abnormal in the transcript.
The transcript, copied in full at the end of this article, was initially held as part of the police investigation, authorities said Tuesday. Previously, Malaysia Airlines had stated initial investigations indicated that the voice which signed off was that of the co-pilot. Authorities said police are working to confirm this through forensic examination of the actual recording.
“The international investigations team and the Malaysian authorities remain of the opinion that, up until the point at which it left military primary radar coverage, MH370’s movements were consistent with deliberate action by someone on the plane,” the department said.
MH370, a Boeing 777-200 with 239 people on board, disappeared March 8 on a routine flight from Kuala Lumpur to Beijing. The search for the aircraft, believed to be in the south Indian Ocean off the coast of Perth, continues.
Here is the full cockpit/ATR transcript:
