Missing MH370 - Two weeks and a day

Yes, it's been two weeks and a day since a Boeing 777-200ER MAS flight MH370 disappeared with 239 people on board. Updates today via videos..

Malaysia acting Transport Minister, Hishamuddin Hussein, at the latest daily press briefing informing that Chinese satellite captures image of floating object. Plane search widens on new images of 'debris'.

Air Asia CEO Tan Sri Tony Fernandes has taken to Twitter to praise the efforts of acting Transport Minister Datuk Seri Hishammuddin Hussein in handling the search for the missing MH370 plane.

Two days ago, there was some commotion at the press conference, a mother of a passenger was seen wailing at the press conference. She denies mistreatment. Watch video of the interview with her for what she has to say.

Australian Prime Minister Tony Abbott said Sunday there was "increasing hope" of finding missing Malaysia Airlines Flight MH370, after a plane spotted unidentified debris including a wooden pallet in the Indian Ocean search site.

The long, largely fruitless search for the aircraft has been especially agonising for the relatives of the 227 passengers - two thirds of whom were Chinese - and 12 crew.

China has dispatched seven ships to the hunt for the plane, adding to British and Australian naval assets involved.

The latest Chinese satellite images showed an object measuring 22.5m by 13m (74 by 43 feet).

Abbott said it was "consistent" with one of the objects identified in the Australian satellite images, but it was not clear if they were believed to be the same. - AFP (The Star)

Snapshots of MH370 passengers and crew


  1. Oh! I thought I heard something from the TV. Just a brief news that just came in 22 minutes ago. French satellites spot objects near the search area. No other details though.

    Have you noticed that mostly other countries that spotted something and not Malaysia? Doesn't Malaysia have any satellites? Hmm, that makes me think that it's an easy target if some party want to colonise Msia.

  2. sympathizes with that lady. it's so sorrowful for her but hope news of the plane found soon.

  3. More than two weeks already! This is really agonizing for the families and relatives of the passengers and crews on board this missing plane. Hope they find the plane soon!!
