(Flight MH370) Malaysian co-pilot signed off saying ‘good night’
(03-17 18:15)

The last words spoken from the cockpit of the Malaysia Airlines Boeing 777 that went missing 10 days ago were believed to have been spoken by the co-pilot, the airline's chief said.
“Initial investigations indicate it was the co-pilot who basically spoke,'' Malaysia Airlines chief executive Ahmad Jauhari Yahya told a news briefing.
The last message from the cockpit – “All right, good night'' – came after one of the plane's crucial signalling systems had been manually disabled.
Officials previously have said that those words came at a point in the March 8 flight when one of the jetliner's data communications systems already had been switched off.
The timing of the last words has sharpened suspicions that one or both of the pilots may have been involved in the plane's disappearance. —AFP/AP
