Boeing 777-200ER [Missing Flight From Malaysia]

I don’t know but this story is so puzzling that I find myself reading about it whenever I get the chance, desperate to gain knowledge of some worthwhile update. While countries are doing the best they can to find this plane occupied by over 200 passengers, my heart goes out to all the families and friends out there waiting–no doubt–impatiently to hear the news that their loved ones are okay…..that they will be coming back to them soon. 😦

Grief: Family and friends waiting for the plane to arrive break down as they hear the jet has gone missing. The flight vanished off the coast of Vietnam around two hours after taking off.

The latest evidence suggests the plane didn’t experience a catastrophic incident over the South China Sea as was initially suspected. Some experts theorize that one of the pilots, or someone else with flying experience, hijacked the plane or committed suicide by plunging the jet into the sea.

A U.S. official said Friday in Washington that investigators are examining the possibility of “human intervention” in the plane’s disappearance, adding it may have been “an act of piracy.” The official, who wasn’t authorized to talk to the media and spoke on condition of anonymity, said it also was possible the plane may have landed somewhere.
