Mozambique and Malaysia Airlines Flight MH370

Malaysia Airlines flight MH370 was a scheduled international flight which left Kuala Lumpur on Saturday, 8 March 2014 at 00:42 am (MYT) and was expected to arrive in Beijing at 6:30 am (MYT).

For reasons that are still not known, the aircraft made a turn-back west across the Malay Peninsula; changed direction again and flew north west towards the Andaman Sea; and then turned south.

Flight MH370 ended in the southern Indian Ocean about 2000 km from Perth , Western Australia.

An international search for the Boeing 777 in the southern Indian Ocean did not locate any debris from MH370 and underwater searches have failed to locate any wreckage of the Boeing 777-200ER.

However, currents in the Indian Ocean carried debris from flight MH370 thousands of kilometers counter-clockwise around the Indian Ocean in an oceanic system called a gyre. Debris which has been confirmed to be from Malaysia Airlines flight MH370 has been recovered in Madagascar, Mauritius, Mozambique, La Réunion Island, South Africa and Tanzania.
