VOICE-OVER SCRIPT:

MALAYSIA'S GOVERNMENT IS ASKING FOR HELP FROM NEARLY A DOZEN ASIAN COUNTRIES THAT THE MISSING JETLINER MAY HAVE FLOWN OVER --

SOUNDBITE (English) Hishammuddin Hussein, Malaysian Acting Transport Minister:

"This support includes general satellite data, radar playback both primary and secondary, provisions for ground, sea and aerial search and assets as appropriate."

WITHOUT THAT INFORMATION - LOCATING THE PLANE IN WHAT IS NOW A MASSIVE SEARCH AREA MIGHT BE IMPOSSIBLE.

MEANWHILE, POLICE WERE EXAMINING A FLIGHT SIMULATOR BELONGING TO ONE OF THE PILOTS OF THE MALAYSIA AIRLINES PLANE.

SOUNDBITE (English) Khalid Abu Bakar, Malaysia Inspector-General of Police Khalid Abu Bakar:

"We took position of a simulator, of a flight simulator and we dismantled it from the home and we assembled it at our office and we are getting experts to look at it now."

OFFICIALS REVEALED THAT THE FINAL WORDS FROM THE COCKPIT _ "ALL RIGHT, GOOD NIGHT" _ WERE SPOKEN TO AIR TRAFFIC CONTROLLERS --

AFTER THE PLANE'S DATA COMMUNICATION SYSTEM HAD BEEN PARTIALLY DISABLED JUST UNDER A HALF-HOUR INTO THE FLIGHT.

IT'S STILL UNCLEAR WHO SPOKE THOSE WORDS.

THAT COMES A DAY AFTER THE GOVERNMENT CONFIRMED THAT THE PLANE WAS DELIBERATELY DIVERTED --

AND MAY HAVE FLOWN AS FAR NORTH AS CENTRAL ASIA --

OR SOUTH INTO THE VAST REACHES OF THE INDIAN OCEAN.
