LOS ANGELES, CA (Catholic Online) - Malaysian air traffic controllers did not notice that Flight 370 had disappeared for 17 minutes after it had disappeared from civilian radar, according to a preliminary five page report released by the Malaysian government on May 1 and dated April 9.

Additionally, the government released other information regarding the investigation into the missing aircraft. Including audio recording of conversations between the cockpit and air traffic control, the plane's cargo manifest and its seating plan.

They also released a map which shows a deducted flight path, as well as a document which details actions taken by Malaysian authorities in the hours after the Boeing 777 was declared missing.

The plane went off Malaysian radar at 1:21 a.m. on March 8, but air traffic controllers in Vietnam only made inquiries about it at 1:38 a.m. said a report sent to the International Civil Aviation Organization in April.

The plane made a left turn back towards Malaysia following its disappearance from radar, and followed an established route until the Malaysian military tracked it as an unidentified object traveling west towards the Strait of Malacca. It disappeared from military radar at 2:15 a.m.

An antenna in the plane signaled to a satellite multiple times over the next several hours, with the last signal coming at 8:11 a.m. which would have been about the time that the plane would have run out of fuel.

The report said that Malaysian authorities did not launch an official search and rescue operation until 5:30 a.m., nearly four hours later, and thus far no evidence of the plane's whereabouts have been found.
