On 8 March 2014, flight MH370, a Boeing 777-200ER registered 9M-MRO, lost contact with Air Traffic Control during a transition between Malaysian and Vietnamese airspace. An analysis of radar data and subsequent satellite communication (SATCOM) system signalling messages placed the aircraft in
the Australian search and rescue zone on an arc in the southern part of the Indian Ocean. This arc was considered to be the location close to where the
aircraft’s fuel was exhausted.
