    It sure is. I've never heard of anything like this before. The plane seems to have just disappeared off the face of the planet. Anyway, I saw a Chinese woman on the news who just totally lost it. They were supposed to get some information, but again got nothing.

    Her son was on that flight, and I assuming that is probably her ONLY child given the 1-child law in China, so I can't blame her one bit for freaking out. Poor thing. I can't imagine what it must be like to just have to wait and wonder, not knowing WHAT has happened.

    I think it's time for someone in authority to come out and postulate on the most likely scenario. That, in my little mind, is that 'something' happened . . . a catastrophic event, an attempted hijacking, a suicide mission . . . and the plane went down killing all on board. (And then, of course, sharpening country defenses just in case the plane was stolen for some sinister mission.)

    Imagine the legal ramifications of 200+ people "missing." Here in the states, that would create a nightmare. Seven years to declare dead, etc. No insurance benefits, no survivors' benefits, etc. Don't know what it does in other countries, but here? It would be a legal quagmire.

    This whole situation just seems strange to me. I've heard rumors (of course they might not mean anything) that the Malaysian government may have mistakenly shot down the plane and don't want to admit to it and that they already went and collected the pieces of the aircraft. Of course, that is kind of far-fetched, but definitely not impossible.

    This promises to be a major conspiracy theory for many years.

    I'm still waiting for news from Perth. They supposedly saw some fuselage or something on satellite, but now they can't seem to find it. You would think with ALL of our technology it wouldn't be so difficult to get to any place on the globe, but apparently that's not the case.

    The Americans already have all the parts in a secret hangar at Area 51 under assembly.

    I don't understand being tired with the loss of a major airframe carrying souls on-board. But, of course, we do live in a world where people just don't give a damn anymore about anything but their own lives.

    I expect full coverage (that does not have to mean wall-to-wall) until a resolution is derived that makes sense. Anything short of that and I would be entirely dissatisfied with the Officials who are responsible for managing such crises.

    That's not funny. A perfectly fine aircraft just came up missing and there were souls on-board who could have been some of your family members - or you, for that matter. Suppose your own wife was on-board, or your husband. Or, how about your own son or daughter. Grandmother or grandfather. Best friend or a really well known co-worker.

    This is not the time for jokes. Both the aircraft and most importantly the People, are unaccounted for and that speaks volumes about how seriously everybody should take the matter. Equally as important, the Causation for the problems with Flight 370 need to be known by the OEMs and the Airlines, so that if the Causation was mechanical and not human factors related, an AWB or SAWB can be publish that solves the problem so that when you, or someone you know boards another Boeing 777, that same thing does not happen again.

    All jokes aside, we need the coverage and we need to know what happened for the good of all.

    I was thinking, it could even be the work of aliens.
