Malaysia Airlines plane 'could have landed'

The missing Malaysia Airlines plane could have landed somewhere, a former aviation executive has claimed.

Paul Charles, the former director of Virgin Atlantic, said the scenario was "farfetched" but "possible."

Flight MH370, which had 239 on board, disappeared on Saturday without sending a distress signal.

Mr Charles told BBC Radio 5 live's Breakfast: "If you're not transmitting anything from an aircraft and you've managed to avoid radar in some way... then absolutely it's feasible."
