KUALA LUMPUR, April 11 – The Royal Malaysian Air Force (RMAF) today denied a CNN report which stated that it had scrambled search aircraft to look for the missing Malaysia Airlines MH370 aircraft after it went missing early March 8. In a statement, RMAF chief General Tan Sri Rodzali Daud said: “In my capacity as chief of the Royal Malaysian Air Force, I can confirm that the allegation is totally false”. Yesterday, CNN had reported in its website quoting an unnamed senior Malaysian official as saying that the RMAF aircraft were scrambled about 8am before authorities corroborated data indicating that the plane turned back westward. “But the air force did not inform the Department of Civil Aviation or search and rescue operations until three days later, March 11, a source involved in the investigation told CNN,” the report was quoted as saying.
