SummaryThe last words spoken by Malaysia Airlines MH 370 pilots have been revealed by authorities.

"All right, good night", were the last words from the missing Malaysia Airlines MH 370 plane with 239 people aboard before it disappeared from the radar screens.

These words were spoken in the last radio transmission from the cockpit of the missing Malaysia Airlines flight MH370, Malaysia's ambassador to Beijing was quoted by the Singapore-based Strait Times as saying during a meeting with Chinese relatives of those on board.

Aviation officials said crew's last-heard words were in response to Malaysian air traffic controllers information that they were entering Vietnamese airspace and that air traffic controllers from Ho Chi Minh city were taking over.

Anxious and angry over their loved one's unknown fate and lack of progress in locating the plane, the family members yesterday had requested for the meeting with the Malaysian government to seek answers to their questions.

But for close to two hours, the meeting ended with more questions than answers.

The Malaysia Airlines MH 370 plane with 239 people on board, including five Indians and 153 Chinese, vanished over the South China Sea on Friday one hour after taking off from Kuala Lumpur.

The search for the missing plane entered the fifth day, as 34 planes, 40 ships and teams from ten countries are scouring the waters on the plane's flight path and beyond to find it.

Malaysia Airlines MH 370 disappearance from radar screens could be a result of hijacking and the hijackers turning off signals, in such an event, the pilot should still have sent a secret mayday code, a Malaysian civil aviation official was quoted as saying.

After days of failure to find any signs of Malaysia Airlines MH 370, the search has been expanded by authorities now to to areas around Andaman and they have sought India's help in carrying out further searches.
