The complete transcript of communications between the pilots of Malaysia Airlines flight MH370 and Kuala Lumpur air traffic control have been released today by Malaysia’s defense and transportation department. The delay in releasing the transcript caused suspicion among some international observers, apparently ignoring the fact that the transcripts were part of an active Malaysian police investigation. The transcript reveals nothing out of the ordinary and appears to be routine.

Allegedly, the Malaysian police are still working to confirm that the voice which signed off at the cessation of the flight’s communications, is indeed that of the co-pilot as Malaysia Airlines had stated previously.

MH370, a Boeing 777-200 with 239 people on board, disappeared March 8 on a routine flight from Kuala Lumpur to Beijing. The search for the aircraft continues.

The communications transcript of the aircraft is as follows:
