    Malaysian Boeing 777 missing

    Bad news this morning,is that. Boeing 777 series 200 ,is missing on a flight from Kuala Lumpar to China.
    There are over 240 passengers and aircrew on board.All contact was lost with the plane over Vietnam.
    The plane was fuelled for a 7 hour flight,but there has been no messages from the aircraft ,we can hope that Terrorism is not the cause of the aircraft going missing ,and pray for the people who boarded this plane ,and it's crew as well

    unfortunately you probably only have two choices - catastrophic failure caused my turbulence or terrorism. There was no message whatsoever. radar shows the plane veered lost 600ft and then disappeared.

    Two passengers travelling on stolen passports...that smells pretty bad.
    The odds of that happening (without collusion) must be miniscule.

    If it was terrorism then surely there would have been a very public claim by now.

    According to reports the Vietnamese authorities believe they have located parts from the missing airliner in the South China Sea .Photos show what appears to be a door,and they also say a tail fin has been found too.FBI says there were 4 suspect people on this flight,two of them on stolen passport.The passports were stolen over a year ago in Thailand,and Interpol knew of this .Interpol says no authorities got in touch with questions about the two suspects on this flight before the plane departed.They are saying only an handful of airlines check with them about stolen passport .They are calling it lax security

    The floating object had no connection with the missing airliner and neither was the oil slick spotted which was from a ship.

    Seems your correct BleAlvano,news here just confirmed the oil slick is NOT from the airliner,and the picture of the door,search crews cannot locate.A complete mystery !
    How can you hi jack a large airliner to another country and keep it quiet,OR why has NO organization claimed they are behind it ?

    I would have a guess that a good proportion of flights (especially in the region) have people traveling on fake passports.

    They have probably nothing to do with it all, I would say it is more likely that they are some
    sort of drug smugglers or trafficking people or something like that.

    It does seem the press are spending a lot of time on an unknown.

    It is a strange situation though. Whether through sudden complete failure or a terrorist act, it would seem hard to just make an aircraft disappear without something giving a better indication of what took place.
