Two weeks ago, it was reported that Flight 370's final words to Malaysian air control were "all right, good night", spoken by the plane's co-pilot, Fariq Abdul Hamid. As it turns out, just like nearly every other report about the plane, that wasn't the case.
According to a statement Monday from Malaysia's Department of Civil Aviation (DCA), the final words were actually "Good night Malaysian three seven zero". Officials still aren't sure who spoke the final words, Hamid or the flight's pilot, Capt. Zaharie Ahmad Shah.
"We would like to confirm that the last conversation in the transcript between the air traffic controller and the cockpit is at 0119 (Malaysian Time) and is "Good night Malaysian three seven zero," DCA said in a short statement issued on Monday night, according to the Strait Times.The full transcript will be released soon, according to the DCA. No reason was given for the false report.
"The authorities are still doing forensic investigation to determine whether those last words from the cockpit were by the pilot or the co-pilot."
