U.S. Official: Malaysian Plane Sent Signals for 4 Hours

An American official said on Thursday that a Malaysia Airlines plane sent signals to a satellite for four hours after the aircraft went missing, an indication that it was still flying for hundreds of miles or more, reports The Associated Press (AP).

The comments echo ones made by United States investigators on Wednesday night. These unnamed investigators told The Wall Street Journal that the plane’s engines had continued transmitting data to the ground for hours after its last confirmed report.
