Malaysia's government on Sunday asked for help from nearly a dozen Asian countries that the missing jetliner may have flown over, saying that finding the plane would be very difficult without additional data on its final movements.
The number of countries involved in the search and rescue operation has increased from 14 to 25, the Malaysian Acting Transport Minister told a news conference in Sepang, near Kuala Lumpur, on Sunday.
"Malaysian officials are requesting support from these countries as well as others. This support includes general satellite data, radar playback both primary and secondary, provisions for ground, sea and aerial search and assets as appropriate," said Hishammuddin Hussein, Malaysian Acting Transport Minister during the news conference.
Meanwhile, police were examining a flight simulator belonging to one of the pilots of the Malaysia Airlines plane, which went missing more than a week ago with 239 passengers aboard a flight from Kuala Lumpur to Beijing.
"We took position of a simulator (from one of the pilots' house), of a flight simulator and we dismantled it from the home and we assembled it at our office and we are getting experts to look at it now," said Khalid Abu Bakar, Malaysia Inspector-General of Police Khalid Abu Bakar, during the same news conference.
The search area has been expanded after satellite data has shown that after losing contact with air traffic controllers, the plane could have kept flying as far north as Kazakhstan in Central Asia or deep into the southern Indian Ocean, posing awesome challenges for efforts to recover the aircraft and flight data recorders
vital to solving the mystery of what happened on board.
Meanwhile, at Kuala Lumpur International Airport, people wrote tributes on a large banner expressing hope for a safe return home of the passengers of the missing Malaysia Airlines flight MH370.
Confirmation Saturday that someone on board severed the communication links with the ground and flew off course for more than six hours has triggered a formal criminal investigation into who on the plane was involved, and what motive they might have for doing so.
Malaysian authorities have not ruled out any possibilities, and to establish what happened with any degree of certainty investigators will likely need to examine information, including cockpit voice recordings, from the plane's flight data recorders should the jet be located.
Malaysian officials and aviation experts said that whoever disabled the plane's communication systems and then flew the jet must have had a high degree of technical knowledge and flying experience, putting one or both of the pilots high on the list of possible suspects.
