MH370 co-pilot made mid-flight phone call, says report
A report said today, citing unnamed investigators that the co-pilot of missing Malaysian airliner MH370 attempted to make a mid-flight call from his mobile phone just before the plane vanished from radar screens,.
The call ended abruptly possibly because the aircraft was fast moving away from the telecommunications tower.
But the Malaysian daily also quoted another source saying that while Fariq Abdul Hamid's "line was re-attached", there was no certainty that a call was made from the Boeing 777 that vanished on March 8th.
The report -- titled a "desperate call for help" -- did not say who he was trying to contact.
