Missing Malaysia plane


Vietnamese ships and planes are continuing to search for the missing Malaysian Jetliner.
At this point they've found no wreckage close to where they spotted two large oil slicks.
    The Boeing 777 carrying 239 people disappeared early Saturday.

There are still more questions than answers in the disappearance of that Malaysia plane.
The jet carrying 227 passengers and a crew of 12 was flying from Kuala Lumpur in Malaysia to Beijing Friday night, but never made it.

One of the two oil slicks searchers are focusing on, is in the South China Sea between Malaysia and Vietnam.
But there have been no signs of wreckage or debris from Malaysia airlines flight 370.

No radio call, no may-day, nothing.

"It never happens. An airplane does not just drop out of the sky."

The Boeing 777 had no maintenance issues and a good safety record.

There are theories on what went wrong, but no claims of terrorism. Reports say two passengers on the plane were traveling with stolen passports.
Finding the black boxes may unravel the mystery and time is of the essence to hear their underwater ping.

"30 days is the guarantee, on both the flight data recorder and the cockpit recorder."

The majority of the 227 passengers were Chinese. Three were Americans, two children of Chinese parents, and an adult; Philip Wood, and IBM executive from Texas who worked in Malaysia.

In Beijing, family members are waiting for the flight from Kuala Lumpur were gathered in a hotel room, frustrated and desperate for information.

The mother whose 40 year old son was on board the plane said "I don't want to live, what is the point of me being alive?!"

And in Kuala Lumpur, it was much the same.
Now the race is on to find any sign of the 777 and to solve the mystery.
