Flight 370 and military radar

The search for Malaysian Airlines flight MH370 is nearing two weeks and still no firm sign of the missing Boeing 777-200ER or the 239 passengers and crew onboard.

Since the jetliner went missing over the Gulf of Thailand, people have been wondering how one of the largest commercial airplanes can disappear. Why didn’t the plane show up on radar?

Military radar might have picked up the plane, but releasing such information could effectively broadcast sensitive information about a country’s military capabilities, said Pavluk, who works for Avascent, a Washington, D.C., consulting firm.
