    Another Comercial airline missing. This time it's an AirAsia Airbus. When MH370 went missing I suspected foul play. It had a muslim pilot and was from an Islamic country Malaysia. AirAsia is also from Malaysia. If it is also not found then we have a major problem. When the first plane hit the WTC on 9-11-2001 I thought wow what a terrible accident. When the second one hit, well we all knew it wasn't an accident. I don't know if this latest disappearance is a tragic accident or not but something smells fishy to me.

    I am a little stunned by this news, and I am not sure what sure what explanations I should jump to. Unlike the other plane that went missing, I hope this mystery is solved. I can't believe this is happening again. I hope we find the answers and solve the issues.
