    MH370 missing en route to Beijing

    Malaysia Airlines lose contact with plane bound for Beijing? live | World news | theguardian.com

    Official statement from Malaysian Airlines.

    MH370 Flight Incident | Malaysia Airlines

    The rumour about Nanming looking less likely by the hour. The first fatal (if confirmed) in about 30 years for Malaysia I think.

    Unlikely for there to be any survivors after this long. Rip.

    With all the technology in this day and age, I can't understand why it's taken this long to locate the plane and as of this post they still have no idea where it is.

    Technology doesn't help much when it went down in the middle of the night and had about 4 hours to settle in a hundred metres of water. Would take hours just to get out there to start the search and you'd have to wait until first light.

    One of those situations where there's no easy way to do it, sadly. They'd know where it should be at the metre scale but actually finding it, tough. And there's no way they'd risk putting out the 'we found it' call until basically some fisherman sees some wreckage.

    Depths of water in the area (look around, it's for the whole world).

    Yeah and considering the speed it's apparently disappeared and where it went down, well, I'd be surprised if there aren't truther sites out there being written as we speak. Although I did have a chuckle when someone initially wondered about North Korean missile tests, like they're anywhere near where this happened.

    Are there any similarities with the Air France accident?

    Only that both happened in cruise and even then, AF447 only really started to go wrong when the pilots took over..... Different types (AF447 was an A330 vs this one being a 777-200), different locations (middle of the Atlantic vs South China Sea) and different weather (bad vs clear).

    Thanks. Sounds like one that's rife for speculation then. Horrible stuff.
