Just six minutes after MH370 stopped communicating with the ground control, Thailand’s military detected a plane heading toward the Strait of Malacca — but they haven’t came out with this information until now.
The Thai military revealed on March 18 that the plane that the entire world had been searching for may have taken a westward turn after it lost communication with all ground control. They were tracking the plane, which was on route from Kuala Lumpur to Beijing, when it disappeared at 1:22am from its radar. But that wasn’t the last time they saw a jet on their radar that evening.

At 1:26, an unidentified object was spotted on the radar, a Royal Thai Air Force spokesman told CNN. The unknown aircraft, however was headed in the opposite direction than 370 had been.

The Thai government didn’t say anything earlier, because the Malaysian government hadn’t weren’t.
However, this isn’t the first evidence that show that the plane changed its path.
