14 March 2014– News surrounding Flight MH370 is getting more mysterious by the day. It’s hard keeping track of the news reports about what may have happened. It is also difficult to differentiate between what is confirmed and what is unconfirmed considering what has already been denied by Malaysian authorities including the report Officials deny reports Malaysia flight flew for several hours after last contact. I can’t imagine what it is like for the families of the passengers on this flight trying to understand what happened to their loved ones. It is truly baffling, not only the contradictory news reports, but the fact a plane with communication technology so sophisticated could just disappear from civilian radar. Just about any theory about its disappearance cannot be ruled out at this stage. I check my various news sites multiple times a day just to see what is the latest information about the flight. It’s freaking me out.
I follow my beloved ABC News Australia for most of my news. The wordpress blog below seems to corroborate with this report Malaysia Airlines flight MH370: Search for missing plane shifts to Indian Ocean from ABC online.

KUALA LUMPUR (Reuters) – Military radar-tracking evidence suggests a Malaysia Airlines jetliner missing for nearly a week was deliberately flown across the Malay peninsula towards the Andaman Islands, sources familiar with the investigation told Reuters on Friday.
Two sources said an unidentified aircraft that investigators believe was Flight MH370 was following a route between navigational waypoints – indicating it was being flown by someone with aviation training – when it was last plotted on military radar off the country’s northwest coast.
The last plot on the military radar’s tracking suggested the plane was flying toward India’s Andaman Islands, a chain of isles between the Andaman Sea and the Bay of Bengal, they said.
Waypoints are geographic locations, worked out by calculating longitude and latitude, that help pilots navigate along established air corridors.
