Full coverage: Malaysia Airlines Plane Bound for Beijing Goes Missing

There’s a new revelation on what happened on that tragic day flight MH370 dissapeared. According to CNN, a senior Malaysian aviation source said that the jetliner soared to near its peak altitude after drastically changing course. The plane reportedly climbed to nearly 12,000 meters, just under the Boeing 777’s safe operating limit and cruised at that altitude for 20 minutes before descending.

An investigation by Malaysian authorities also shows that none of the plane’s four Emergency Beacons sent back any signals. According to their design, the Emergency Beacon should have started working if the aircraft crashed or touched water.

When asked about the revelations, Malaysia Airlines said it was unable to release any information from an ongoing investigation.
