There is no clarity at the moment about passengers and fate. Malaysia Airlines missing flight MH370 status. Latest update March 9
The disappearance of Malaysia Airlines MH370 seems to be one of the rarest of rare incidents in the history of civil aviation in the world. Almost two days have passed and still there is no trace of the civilian aircraft that had taken off from Kuala Lumpur and was headed to Beijing, China.
They have no clue as to what happened to their dear and near ones and where they or their bodies are. Many are still awaiting at the airport and others are travelling long distances to be at the airport where they think the info is going to be available as soon as there is any development.
In the meantime aviation experts are saying that it is the rarest of the rare incident when a plane of such repute crashes despite being on course and in the air. Paul Hayes, Director of Safety at Flightglobal Ascend says, “Aircraft do not crash while en route like this…It is an extremely unusual event.”
In the meantime Malaysian government is seriously looking into terrorism aspect in the incident. At least two people, and some reports say, four were travelling on stolen or forged passports. Interpol has also said that it is looking into the issue. It said that it was “examining additional suspect passports” used by passengers.
Malaysian Airlines officials are under immense pressure from all sides to actually come up with fast response. Datuk Azharuddin Abdul Rahman of director of Malaysian Department of Civil Aviation in a press conference said, “after more than 24 hours, the search and rescue operation has yet to locate the missing aircraft and that debris reportedly discovered by the Vietnamese is not part of MH370…“We are not ruling out anything including hijacking and terrorism…Finding the MAS MH370 is of utmost importance as it will reveal the reason of the aircraft’s disappearance…There has been no signal from the aircraft’s Emergency Locator Transmittor (ELT)”.
Meanwhile the search for the missing plane is taking an international shape. Reports suggest that right now at least 34 aircraft and 40 ships are working round the clock.
