Pakistan says MH370 did not land there

KUALA LUMPUR, March 16 — A Pakistani official today dismissed reports suggesting that missing Malaysia Airlines flight MH370 may have landed in the South Asian country.

Pakistan’s Special Assistant to the Prime Minister on Aviation Shujaat Azeem told news portal Dawn.com that the country’s military did not observe the Boeing 777-200ER approach or enter its airspace.

“It’s wrong, (the) plane never came towards Pakistan,” he was quoted as saying in the report.

India today similarly discounted the possibility of the plane entering its airspace.

Yesterday, Malaysia revealed that satellite data has allowed investigators to arrive at two “corridors” where the plane could possibly be located: a northern arc from northern Thailand to the border of Kazakhstan and Turkmenistan in central Asia, or a southern one from Indonesia to the southern Indian Ocean.

The northern corridor would have brought the plane towards South Asia.

The northern option crosses heavily-militarised zones that made it unlikely that an unidentified aircraft the size of the Boeing 777 could have slipped past unnoticed. A defence industry executive said interceptors would have been deployed immediately once its presence was detected.

    Just because Malaysia’s military was not alert enough to detect the possibly missing plane, they expect other nation’s to do the same? If the plane had flown over those countries of the “northern corridor” those countries, which are usually on a high state of alert, would have picked out the unidentified aircraft immediately and sent fighter jets to intercept it.

    Can Malaysia afford another incident such as this before some heads will roll? This is a time to reflect upon ourselves where quality matters!

    Pakistan: No. No blip on our screen.

    India: No. No blip. Otherwise we would have sent our jets to detect, identify and destroy the intruding flying object.

    Malaysia: Blip?? Errr (two hours later) mungkin ada. (two hours later) Tada. (two hours later) Ada. (two hours later) I deny saying “ada” (two hours later) I deny saying “tada”. (two hours later). Cant confirm. (Meanwhile got bomoh into the act and two hours later.) Not sure. (then monsterO’mamak entered the scene with his blistering attack on DAP on an unrelated and completely fictitious issue and two further hours later.) We are very cooperative and we are prepared to give information to anyone. (two hours later) ….. finally (after more than a week and as a result of an announcement in wsj (leaked info??)) ada.

    Tu dia, kerajaan umno yg paling best di dunia.

    heads will roll? Are you kidding me? this is bolehland. Land of the best democracy. They will all get promoted and given projects after all this.

    Anyway who would want to give back the US1 billion plane which landed on their backyard when nobody seems to know about it? Jackpot la.

    Better get a bomoh who can talk to fishes(ikan tuna, jerung, sotong atau paus). They might give more reliable information.

    some countries may need our 777 as spare parts, not to say the engines.
