Quote:
The fate of the missing Malaysian Airlines jet believed to have disappeared off the coast of Vietnam almost three days ago with 239 people aboard remains a mystery, officials said.

Malaysia's civil aviation head, Azharuddin Abdul Rahman, speaking to reporters in Kuala Lumpur Monday, said that investigators have so far not found anything that could be part of the missing plane.

But that statement came as Vietnam sent helicopters to investigate a floating "yellow object" suspected of being a life raft from flight MH370 bound for Beijing, Reuters reported. Vietnam's civil aviation body later ruled that out, saying the object was not from the plane.

MISSING MH370: Man claims possible sighting of airliner
www.nst.com.my/latest/missing-mh370-font-man-claims-possible-sighting-of-airliner-?

Quote:
KELANTAN: A businessman in Ketereh claimed that he saw a bright white light, believed to be of an aircraft, descending at high speed towards the South China Sea about 1.45am on the day flight MH370 went missing.

Alif Fathi Abdul Hadi, 29, told the New Straits Times what he saw after lodging a report with the Malaysian Maritime Enforcement Agency (MMEA) in Tok Bali earlier today.

Alif said he was in the compound of his home when he saw the bright white light, which he described as similar to the ones used by airplanes during night flights.

"I was walking towards my back door when I caught a glimpse of the white light.

"It was moving towards the sea, towards Bachok area, which was unusual.

"Usually, aircrafts that fly over here have their usual route pattern, but this one went completely towards the other way," he said.

Alif said he watched the light's movement for about five minutes, before realising that it was descending.

However, he said he was not sure that it was an airplane as he only saw the light.

He said there was no blinking red light.

"I did not think much about it, and went to sleep.


"Only the next day, when I heard the news on the radio, I thought that the light I saw could be from the aircraft's.

"After discussing with my family members, they advised me to lodge a report, and I hope this information can be of any help," he said.

Alif was accompanied by his uncle Rosman Ishak, 55, when he lodged the report.

One of the Indonesian passengers aboard flight MH 370 is my friend's cousin, Firman Candra Siregar (24) ...an electrical engineer from Medan, North Sumatra who just been assigned by his company Schlumberger, an oilfield service company to be stationed in China.

By the way most of his stuff are still in my friend's house in Bandung city. Just about two weeks ago he left Bandung for KL by transiting his hometown Medan first for few days. According to Josua Manulang (my friend, the cousin), Firman still sent him Whatsapp text message in KLIA airport minutes before he boarded MH 370, asking for an assistance to pack all of his stuff in Bandung and send them to Medan.

Swedish media is reporting that the other imposter may have been another Iranian seeking asylum in Sweden. Distant relatives have contacted the authorities.

Search for Malaysian Airliner Focuses on Straits of Malacca

Quote:
Search and rescue teams scouring for the missing Malaysia Airlines jet have expanded the scope of their hunt beyond the flight path and are focusing on the West Peninsular of Malaysia at the Straits of Malacca, where the aircraft may have turned around.

The airline said authorities are looking at the possibility that Flight 370 attempted to turn back to Subang, the suburb of Kuala Lumpur from which it departed.

The Strait of Malacca is a relatively narrow stretch of sea that lies west of the Malaysia peninsula and the Indonesian island of Sumatra.

"All angles are being looked at. We are not ruling out any possibilities," the airline said in a statement released early Tuesday local time.

In addition to the search of the sea, land in the areas is also being combed over.

There you go... And if that is true, they are just two people seeking a better life only to be struck by tragedy

"There can be no information until that plane is found" - Richard Quest, CNN correspondent

thought people might want to see this..

Astro AWANI reporter Cynthia Ng and Rizal Zulkapli talked to CNN correspondent and aviation expert Richard Quest for his point of view of what could have happened to the missing flight MH370. Quest also recently flew with the MH370 first officer on a flight(MH370) to Hong Kong.
