What happened to the Malaysian airline that vanished?
Could a massive passenger jet slip past radar, cross international borders and land undetected?While that's possible, I do know that, because Malaysia is a country with Islamic dominance, there's also the possibility they don't maintain security as good as what American and some European countries have. I'm sure that American airlines by contrast would take steps to ensure their planes could not go undetected by radar in case of emergency. Malaysia, on the other hand, may be well behind the times.
That's a key question investigators are weighing as they continue the search for Malaysia Airlines Flight 370, which vanished March 8 on a flight from Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, bound for Beijing.
Radar does have some blind spots, and it's possible to avoid being spotted by flying at low altitude, analysts told CNN.
But experts are divided over whether that could be what happened to the missing Boeing 777-200ER.
Jeffrey Beatty, a security consultant and former FBI special agent, says someone could have planned a route that avoided radar detection.
Will the plane be found? So far, there's no clear way to tell.
