Military thought flight MH370 turn back was ordered by Subang, deputy minister tells parliament

26 March 2014

The military did not respond when it saw an unidentified flight on its military radar as they had assumed that the air traffic control in Subang had ordered the plane to do a turn back, deputy Defence Minister Datuk Abdul Rahim Bakri told Parliament today.

“It was detected by our radar, but the turn back was by a non-hostile plane and we thought maybe it was at the directive of the control tower,” he said in winding up points raised by MPs on the King’s royal address.

It had been reported earlier that a non-hostile aircraft flew right across the country’s air space in the early hours of March 8.

In an earlier report, the British Broadcasting Corporation had said this raised questions about security gaps while a former British Royal Air Force pilot and aerospace analyst Andrew Brookes had said that the government and air force will have some serious matters to address. – March 26, 2014.
