KUALA LUMPUR: The Transport Ministry has released the preliminary report regarding the disappearance of the Malaysia Airlines flight MH370 plane as well as recordings of conversation between the cockpit and KL air traffic control.
The report, which came from the office of the Ministry's chief inspector of air accidents, details topics such as actions taken by authorities on the day of MH370's disappearance, the plane's cargo manifest and flight history as well as a map of its possible flight paths, among others.
In a statement, Transport Minister Datuk Seri Hishammuddin Tun Hussein said the report was made public as the information did not "hamper the investigation or the search operation, in the interests of openness and transparency," a guiding principle espoused by Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak.
Flight MH370 went missing at 1.38am on Mar 8, with 227 passengers and 12 crewmembers on board, was reported missing while en-route from Kuala Lumpur to Beijing.
A massive search and rescue operation was conducted, first in the South China Sea and later in the southern Indian Ocean.
The search for the plane is currently in its 55th day, with Australia's Joint Agency Coordination Centre leading SAR efforts.
