Malaysian Airlines 370 still in the dark for over six months

Posted: September 8, 2014 in News

According to CNN,
Six months ago, the story began as a puzzling news bulletin. A Malaysia Airlines passenger jet with 239 people on board had vanished from radar screens as it was flying from Kuala Lumpur to Beijing.

The disappearance was quite the mystery. Was it a terrorist attack? Was there a mechanical failure that led to a crash? Did the plane go down over land or water? Were there any survivors?

We all figured the answers would come after searchers found the aircraft or its wreckage.

Half a year later, it remains a deep mystery. No part of the plane has been discovered. Not one speck of debris.

A Boeing 777-200ER just disappeared. With 227 passengers and 12 crew members on board, it just vanished.

Authorities are convinced the plane crashed March 8 in the southern Indian Ocean. Satellite data and radar information indicate the plane turned off course and most likely went down about the time it would have run out of fuel.
