Yesterday, MH370, a Boeing 777-200ER, disappeared without a trace! The plane went missing shortly after take-off from KL on a regular flight to Beijing. There were 239 passengers and crew on board. That this could happen with our sophisticated satellite tracking and surveillance, and to such a large plane, is really stretching the imagination quite a bit. The mystery will deepen as events unfold. It would be confirmed in a few days that the plane had flown for another seven hours after all communications were lost- or were deliberately turned off. It appears that it has been hijacked.
