MH370 report data 'modified', say investigators

There is growing evidence to suggest that the final report in the MH370 case contains incomplete data logs.
Exactly what happened to Malaysia Airlines Flight 370 after it took off from Kuala Lumpur International Airport on March 8, 2014 still remains one of the most enduring mysteries in aviation history.

Back at the end of July, authorities in Malaysia published a final report on the case in which they admitted that they were "unable to determine the real cause for the disappearance of MH370".

Since then however, an independent investigation by a group of experts has highlighted discrepancies in the data suggesting that it is incomplete and that it may have even been tampered with.

According to group leader Victor Iannello, "anomalies" have been found in the logs detailing the communication between the MAS Operations Dispatch Center and the service providers that route messages as part of the Aircraft Communications Addressing and Reporting System.

One message in particular - which was classed as urgent and was resent multiple times - has the wrong time on it, suggesting that either the text is wrong or there are missing entries.

"It is disappointing that more than four years after MH370's disappearance, we are still asking Malaysia to release withheld data," Iannello wrote.

"The anomalies suggest the traffic logs appearing in the reports are not complete, and what appears in the reports has been modified."

"It is important that Malaysia provide a complete, unmodified log of all ACARS communications on Satcom, VHF and HF paths. This is significant in light of questions surrounding the delayed response of Malaysian authorities after MH370 went missing."

All that for saving face ? That they known the fate or they have influenced it ? Strange stuff indeed but it look like another conspiracy theory...

What’s your opinion then?  With the systems that were in place, a passenger aircraft could have absolutely not been accounted for.

It's the ''Expert independent investigators'' thing that make me a little bit confuse... Which investigator ? Expert of what? Investigator for Who? Yep if it's true is quite strange, but does this ''group of external investigator'' have access to the data that the true agency have or just public available data ? Does he talk about the true log,  translation of the log text because maybe all of it is not in english, the captured text from a recording by a software? Lots of back ends there...   For the cause of mh370 disappearance, you can explain it by the lost of cabin pressurization , cockpit... [More]

Well that’s the crux of it.  The data should be 100% available and verifiable. Verifiable, meaning that it is accurate and original data from a specific point of origin.  Any changes made to the data should have been recorded and publicly released. As to negate this exact discussion we’re having.

In all tragic story they are some people are protecting their own a**. Still, to make thing square and founded, we need to know who the ''Expert independent investigators'' cited in the article...

CYA maybe?  Something bigger may be going on.

Yes, who really knows. Possibly lots of incompetency behind the scenes involved at the time....hence cover ups.

John the frog. An external investigator doesn't mean civilian nor does it mean it's less trustworthy than the team in charge. All report data are in both languages and de-pressurization can no longer be a factor for casualty aboard an aircraft.

Caused some.. look for Helios Airways Flight 522 for example. A loss of cabin pressurization incapacitated the crew, leaving the aircraft flying on autopilot until it ran out of fuel and descended into the ground near Grammatiko, Greece.

  "Exactly what happened to Malaysia Airlines Flight 370  (...) still remains one of the most enduring mysteries in aviation history." You'd think that one of the 200+ aviation mysteries that have ENDURED longer than this would be considered the MOST enduring.
