This is one news we all don't want to hear. Being in the aviation industry, it pains me to hear something like this because most of the time, it is never good.
Today 8 March 2014, around 2 in the morning, flight Malaysia Airline MH 370 went missing after few hours from leaving Kuala Lumpur bound to Beijing. The B777-200 series aircraft carried 239 people, mostly Chinese, on board and is still not found.
A lot of questions are now raised as to why the flight crew did not give a distress call. So many ifs but the whereabouts is not yet fully determined.
I am offering my prayers to all the people on board and the families of each and everyone. I hope, they had done an emergency landing somewhere and didn't have the working equipment to make a distress call. Dear God, help them all.
