Report: MH370 radar data may have been wrong

It's been nearly four months since Malaysia Airlines Flight 370 disappeared, and now, Australia is about to start hunting for the missing jet in a whole new search area.

There are also new reports that suggest officials relied on faulty radar data. Officials had said Malaysian radar showed the missing plane dramatically changed altitudes, flying as high as 45,000 feet and dipping as low as 4,000 feet.

That information is apparently dead wrong.

According to the New York Times, the plane remained in controlled flight for hours after it lost contact.

    What is the source of the reappearance on radar shown in your report as the ATSB claim that it is journalistic play and not real.
