In their perspective, as cynical/"bad" as it sounds, it probably won't garner viewers; it's 12AM EST, 9PM PST in the US

Would be insane if the Vietnamese Navy mistakenly shot it down and didn't report it until now.

disappearing from the radar then ending up at sea...sounds a lot like China Airlines 611 TPE to HKG in 2002 which was the last 747 to cause passenger casualties

Sad and tragic. Hope they find that black box and find the cause (and prevent this happening in future)

RIP.

Must have been something catastrophic and fast, for the pilots not to radio in any issues.
So weird, I was just watching the show "Mayday" and was thinking how horrible it would be to go though something like this...Then I hear this news

Situations like this remind me that I will never know how or when I'm going to go. Will be hugging my loved ones tight tomorrow. Gotta cherish the good times.

Official Press Release from MAS Website:

Saturday, March 08, 04:20 PM MYT +0800 Media Statement - MH370 Incident released at 4.20pm

Sepang, 8 March 2014: Malaysia Airlines is still unable to establish any contact or determine the whereabouts of flight MH370. Earlier today, Subang ATC had lost contact with the aircraft at 2.40am. The last known position of MH370 before it disappeared off the radar was 065515 North (longitude) and 1033443 East (latitude).

We are still trying to locate the current location of the flight based on the last known position of the aircraft. We are working with the International search and rescue teams in trying to locate the aircraft. So far, we have not received any emergency signals or distress messages from MH370. We are working with authorities and assure that all sources are deployed to assist with the search and rescue mission.

The passenger manifest will not be released until all families of the passengers have been informed. The flight was carrying a total number of 239 passengers and crew – comprising 227 passengers (including 2 infants) and 12 crew members.

We are deploying our “Go Team” to Beijing which will depart Kuala Lumpur International Airport at 4.30pm with a team of caregivers and volunteers to assist the family members of the passengers.

The passengers are of 14 different nationalities. All crew on-board are Malaysians.

Our focus now is to work with the emergency responders and authorities and mobilize our full support.

Our thoughts and prayers are with all affected passengers and crew and their family members.

The public may contact +603 7884 1234.

For media queries, kindly contact +603 8777 5698/ +603 8787 1276.

The airline will provide regular updates on the situation. There are many unvalidated reports out in the media and Malaysia Airlines strongly urges the media and the public at large to only report from official statements from Malaysia Airlines and the Government of Malaysia.
