    SO sad, I love to fly but that is scary stuff.

    According to BBC News it is still 'missing'. No wreckage or other sign of it has been found yet.

    Indicentally, though horrified since I'm on a trans-pac this evening, this would be the first fatalities ever from a crash involving this type of aircraft. The Asiana flight crashing at SFO was a similar kind of plane, but the fatalities occurred because of an incorrect evacuation by two passengers and occurred on the ground.

    I'm really, really hoping it's something else though for a variety of reasons...

    Some additional information from Flyer Talk:

    Malaysia to investigate possible breach of security in boarding

    According to Chinese news media LINK

    Quote:
    据马来西亚当地媒体malaymailonline,在外媒报道MH370两名乘客被冒名登机之后,马来西 亚交通部副部长Datuk Aziz Kaprawi回应称正在对登机时可能存在的违规行为进行调查,但他表示对安检方面的工作比较有信心。此前 ,马来西亚民航局总监在周六晚间的一场发布会上表示,官方在对乘客以及行李的监控录影带检查后未发现任何可 疑之处。但马来西亚总理表示现在下结论还为时尚早,其他官员也表示不能排除是恐怖行动的可能性 。
    Translation:

    According to local news Malaymail Online, after media reported that two passengers used stolen passports boarding the flight MH370, Malaysian Transport Vice Minister Datuk Aziz Kaprawi states that Malaysia will investigate whether there is breach of regulations when the flight was boarded in KUL. However, he believes the airport security had been sufficient. In the meantime, Malaysian Aviation directors stated in a news conference that there is no obvious suspicions after reviewing the airport CCTV footage. But Malaysian Prime Minister said that it is too early to come to a conclusion, other ministers did not rule out the possibilities of terrorist attack.

    So, either terrorism or the 777's first real failure.... I'm not sure which I'd rather it be.

    Those international flights. You never know.
    No pointing this incident, but doing an international flight crossing continents is a little scary when you know that the ocean is down there while you are on the air.

    I hope that this time, KTVU Channel 2 News gets their act together before reporting casualties.
