Malaysia Airlines Flight 370: Why was the flight on autopilot? New clues.


Malaysia Airlines Flight 370, missing since March 8, may finally be yielding some clues as to its disappearance.
In a report issued by the Australian Transport Safety Bureau, officials said they were confident that the plane was flying on autopilot until it ran out of fuel and crashed, according to the Associated Press.
This is a significant detail in an investigation that has so far yielded few reasons for the disappearance of the Boeing 777 beyond mere speculation. The new information comes from a detailed analysis of communication between the plane and the Inmarsatsatellite network, according to ABC News.
