I doubt it's hijacking or terrorism, with a catastrophic communication failure, it most likely went down =(

Tragic.

Reports are that they lost contact when passing through Vietnam. Unless it happened in a very remote area, chances are someone would have reported seeing debris and fire falling if it blew up mid air.

Unlikely it would still be in the air now no? Would it have run out of fuel already?

NBC just posted a timeline of events:
http://www.nbcnews.com/storyline/mis...nes-jet-n47641

Quote:
A Malaysia Airlines flight carrying 239 people lost contact with air traffic control and was still missing hours after it had been scheduled to land in Beijing. Here is a timeline:

12:41 a.m. -- The Boeing 777-200 -- carrying 227 passengers from 14 countries along with 12 crew members -- took off from Kuala Lumpur.

2:40 a.m. -- Air traffic control in Subang, a suburb of Kuala Lumpur, lost contact with the plane. The airline has not said where the aircraft was at that time.

6:30 a.m. -- The flight was scheduled to land in Beijing at 6:30 a.m.

7:24 a.m. -- Malaysia Airlines announced it had lost contact five hours earlier with the flight.

11:14 a.m. -- Malaysia Airlines held a news conference confirming the loss of contact with its aircraft. Four Americans, including an infant, were aboard, a spokesman said. "Our focus now is to work with the emergency responders and authorities and mobilize its full support," he added. Most of the passengers — 153, including one of the infants — were Chinese, the airline said Saturday. The other infant was an American, one of four on the plane. Thirty-eight people were from Malaysia, and 12 were from Indonesia.
