In one of the most baffling mysteries in recent aviation history, a massive search operation for the Malaysia Airlines Boeing 777-200ER that disappeared on March 8 has so far found no trace of the aircraft or the 239 passengers and crew. Families of the passengers, as well curious onlookers around the world, wait for some sign of the missing plane or an explanation for its disappearance. The Malaysian military believes the plane flew for more than an hour after vanishing from air traffic control screens, changing course and travelling west over the Strait of Malacca, a senior military source said.
