Missing Malaysia Airlines Flight MH370: Full transcript of pilot's final words

Malaysia Airlines have released the transcript of exchanges before MH370 vanished

Malaysia Airlines have released the full transcript of exchanges between the pilots of the missing flight MH370 and ground control.

The transcript, issued on Tuesday and shared with families of the passengers and crew, covers about 55 minutes of apparently routine conversation, beginning about quarter of an hour before take-off.

It ends at 01.19 on 8 March, when MH370 vanished with 239 people bound for Beijing from Kuala Lumpur.

The transcript contained a new version of the conversation between air traffic control and the cockpit of the missing flight, with the final transmission being amended to a more formal “good night Malaysian three seven zero" from the casual "all right, good night".

Investigators are conducting a forensic examination of the final recorded conversation, the Malaysian government said.
