#MH370 2nd Interim Statement

This 2nd Interim Statement1 has been prepared under Chapter 6, paragraph
6 of ICAO2 Annex 13 to provide information on the progress of the
investigation on the disappearance of Malaysia Airlines (MAS) Flight
MH370, a Boeing 777-200ER aircraft, registered as 9M-MRO pending the
completion of the Final Report as required under ICAO Annex 13. A Final
Report will be completed in the event wreckage of the aircraft is located or
the search for the wreckage is terminated, whichever is the earlier.

2. The Beijing-bound international scheduled passenger flight, with a total of
239 persons (227 passengers and 12 crew) on board, departed KL
International Airport (KLIA) at 1642 UTC on 07 March 2014 [0042 MYT on
08 March 2014]. Less than 40 minutes after take-off, radar contact with the
aircraft was lost after passing waypoint3 IGARI.

3. As a Contracting State of ICAO and in accordance with Annex 13 to the
Convention on International Civil Aviation, Aircraft Accident and Incident
Investigation, and under Regulation 126(1)4 of the Malaysian Civil Aviation
Regulations 1996 (MCAR), on 25 April 2014, Malaysia established an
independent international Air Accident Investigation Team, known as ‘The
Malaysian ICAO Annex 13 Safety Investigation Team for MH370’ (the
“Team”) to investigate the disappearance of flight MH370. The Team,
headed by the Investigator-in-Charge, comprises 19 Malaysians and 7
Accredited Representatives of 7 safety investigation authorities5 from 7

4. On 08 March 2015, the 1st Interim Statement and the Factual Information on
the Safety Investigation for MH370 were released6 to the public on the first
anniversary of the disappearance of MH370.

5. To-date, the MH370 wreckage has still not been found despite the
continuing search in the South Indian Ocean. However, a flaperon was
recovered in the French island of Réunion on 29 July 2015 and was
determined to have been a part of the MH370 aircraft.

6. At this time, the Team is continuing to work towards finalising its analysis,
findings/conclusions and safety recommendations on eight relevant areas
associated with the disappearance of flight MH370 based on available
information. New information that may become available before the
completion of the Final Report may alter these analysis, findings/
conclusions and safety recommendations.

7. The eight areas being reviewed by the Team are as follows:
a) Diversion from Filed Flight Plan Route;
b) Air Traffic Services Operations;
c) Flight Crew Profile;
d) Airworthiness & Maintenance and Aircraft Systems;
e) Satellite Communications;
f) Wreckage and Impact Information (following the recovery and
verification of a flaperon from the aircraft);
g) Organisation and Management Information of the Department of Civil
Aviation (DCA), Malaysia and MAS; and
h) Aircraft Cargo Consignment.
