The interim report on the disappearance of Malaysian Airlines’ flight MH370 has heaped the responsibility of the unfortunate accident on the ‘Airline`s duty staff,’ reported The Independent.

The report released by the Malaysian Transport Ministry on the anniversary of the incident, reveals that the flight`s transponder was turned off by someone on board the plane, making it invisible to the civilian radar.

A transcript of the communication with the flight before its disappearance shows that the flight was over Cambodia before vanishing. The official story however changed the place to east of Vietnam’s coast.

The plane was scheduled to fly north at 35,000 feet and communicate with the controllers at Ho Chi Minh City, but the military radar data has revealed that the flight was turned west to fly over northern Malaysia and the island of Penang.

The Independent has quoted the report saying that had a distress phase been declared sooner the aircraft might have been intercepted using the military radar.
