And this time they’re the least bit unexpected. According to Malaysian Airlines, Flight MH132 apparently going from Auckland New Zealand to Kuala Lumpar didn’t quite go as intended. Officials say the plane apparently “went the wrong direction” and proceeded to go south when it needed to go north and slightly west to successfully land its route in Kuala Lumpar.
About 8 minutes into the flight, officials say the “pilot noticed that something was unusual” and notified air traffic control curious as to why the plane had not taken a more direct route to Malaysia. Somehow, er, the plane ended up reportedly going towards Melbourne instead of the other direction — officials say — the incident is being investigated.
Weirdly, passengers during the excursion were not informed of the incident at all.
