A second country ruled out any possibility that the missing Malaysia Airlines jet flew into their airspace before it disappeared. Dair Tokobayev, vice-president of Kyrgyzstan's main civilian airport Manas, told Reuters on Monday, "This plane did not fly over our territory. We have two military air bases - a U.S. and a Russian one - deployed in our country and equipped with pretty serious radar equipment, so they would have detected this plane." Officials say it is possible the jet could have reached either country when it was purposely diverted from its flight path during an overnight flight from Kuala Lumpur to Beijing on March 8th.
