If you’ve been keeping up with the news, it’s almost impossible to overlook the fact that a whole plane is MISSING. 227 passengers, 12 crew members, completely missing. Malaysian Airlines Flight 370 took a course to Beijing, China on March 8th, 2014 and disappeared before landing. Mishap or malice?
For many, this news is quite unnerving, and I know for me, a very scary thing to hear. In an article posted today, there are new findings about this Malaysian flight possibly being led off course on purpose by the pilot and co-pilot. The last thing heard by ground controllers from the co-pilot was “All right, good night.” This was heard approximately 12 MINUTES before the plane satellites were shut off completely. So who did it? Was the plane hijacked? Act of terrorism?

At this point, it is very hard to say. Many things are pointing to these pilots. The plane was known to have been programmed to take a turn westward way before the pilot made his statement that everything was “all right.” But, one thing has come out of this unfortunate situation- 26 nations have joined together in the search to find this plane. Although the events of this coming together are the least likely to be wanted, it is definitely caused many nations to step up and help one another.
New Evidence in Flight 370:
I’m very interested to see how Malaysian Airlines will continue its business in light of the events taking place. I’m sure their publics are HORRIFIED and many others who travel internationally (not only Malaysian Airlines passengers). I’m sure this will cause a huge change in the trust of airlines, trust that was already shaky to begin with.
Prayers are sent up for these individuals on this plane. Hopefully, Flight 370 will resurface soon with 227 living passengers and 12 living crew members.
