The sequence of events surrounding the disappearance of Malaysia Airlines Flight 370:

- March 8, 12:41 a.m. The plane carrying 239 people leaves Kuala Lumpur heading to Beijing.

- 1:07 a.m. ACARS transmits its regular, half-hourly data report about the jet's engines and other data to the airline.

- 1:19 a.m. Someone, apparently the co-pilot, makes the final voice communication from the cockpit, saying "All right, good night" to air-traffic controllers.

- 1:20 a.m. The transponder shuts down, removing the plane's identification on commercial radar systems.

- 1:37 a.m. An ACARS data transmission is due, but never sent.

- 2:14 a.m. The plane is last seen on military radar, heading west over the Strait of Malacca.

- 8:11 a.m. A satellite records a faint, final "ping" from the disabled ACARS system. A broad arc of the jet's possible location stretches from Kazakhstan into the southern Indian Ocean.

- About 8:40 a.m. The estimated end of the jet's fuel supply.
