Three years ago, Malaysia Airlines flight MH370 disappeared from radar somewhere above the Indian Ocean with 239 people on board.
But when an aircraft passes beyond 240km above the open seas, cockpits switch from the transponders to high-frequency radio equipment to keep in contact with air traffic control stations. Because the plane's location transmission system went dead, the signals that would have been received by a satellite network would not have been broadcast, Bloomberg reports.
The fate of MH370 remains one of the world's greatest aviation mystery.
Debris from the plane has been found washed ashore on African beaches, but the main wreckage was never located despite years of searching.
The deep-water search for the flight was called off earlier this year.
