(Flight MH370) Malaysia’s ‘incompetence unforgivable’
(03-12 15:39)

Analysts say there are burning questions over what information – if any – Malaysia has gleaned from both military and civilian radar, and the Malaysia Airlines Boeing 777's transponders, and over discounted reports it was later detected near Indonesia.
“It's bad enough for a wide-body jet to go missing with 239 people on board, but then for the responsible country's government and aviation agencies to handle the associated information with total incompetence is unforgivable,'' said David Learmount from industry magazine Flightglobal.
“There are so many information sources that do not appear to have been used effectively in this case. As a result the families of the missing passengers and crew are being kept in the dark,'' said Learmount, Flightglobal's operations and safety editor.—AFP
