MH370 Malaysia Airlines B772 Missing Enroute KUL-PEK Part 2

I suspect 2:40am is the time Subang officially *reported* the aircraft missing - not the time contact was lost, which was at 1:22am, about 41 mins after departure.

This makes much more sense. Thanks.

Cheers

I think you are might be right, the way the aircraft disappeared from FR24 at just that time, 1:22AM although other aircraft in the area were being shown just fine would suggest that might indeed be the time of the accident.

Can someone explain what 'lost contact' means?
Quote:
when radar and radio contact was lost at about 01:22L (17:22Z Mar 7th)

quote from avherald.

not only radio contact, but also radar contact.

I'm wondering why the ATC waited 18 minutes to report it missing at 17:40Z, when the radar signal is was lost at 17:22Z. is this standard to wait so long? does radio signal get lost frequently in that area?

I have seen a ton of questions as to why the plane has not been found yet, and some poor communications. Could it have something to do with Vietnam? I mean, does the country have a swift response to something like this? For some reason, I just don't picture Vietnam having a world class coast guard, or a sophisticated way to do a good search and rescue. Please correct me if I am wrong. I obviously know nothing about Vietnam and the Capabilities they have to respond to a major crash.

Well if it indeed disappeared 40 mins into the flight (instead of 2 hours) it would have been near Malaysian coast, far away from Vietnam. I wonder if they have been looking from wrong area all the time...
