Authorities are searching for Malaysia Airlines flight MH370 bound for Beijing after air traffic controllers lost contact with the airliner carrying 227 passengers and 12 crew members early Saturday morning, the airline said.

A Vietnamese official involved in the search and rescue mission said the signal of the missing plane has been detected 120 nautical miles southwest of Vietnam’s southernmost Ca Mau province, according to local news outlet VNExpress.

Malaysia Airlines said flight MH370 lost touch with Subang Air Traffic Control around 02:40 local time Saturday morning.

The aircraft left Kuala Lumpur International Airport at 00:41 and was expected to land in Beijing at 06:30 local time (22:30 GMT).

"The flight was carrying 227 passengers (including two infants), 12 crew members," the airline said in a statement.

"Malaysia Airlines is currently working with the authorities who have activated their search and rescue team to locate the aircraft," the airline added.

There were 14 nationalities represented among the 227 passengers, according to airline officials. Passengers include 153 Chinese, 38 Malaysians, 12 Indonesians, seven Australians, four Americans, and one Russian, among others.

“Our team is currently calling the next-of-kin of passengers and crew,” Malaysia Airlines said in a further statement.“Focus of the airline is to work with the emergency responders and authorities and mobilize its full support.”

The last contact the plane had was reportedly in Vietnamese airspace.

"We are very worried after learning the news. We are trying to get in touch with relevant parties to check it out," Foreign Ministry spokesman Qin Gang said in statement.

The flight was a code share with China Southern Airlines.

Prior to July 2013's deadly crash of an Asiana Airlines 777 in San Francisco, the aircraft had been one of only a few long-range jets built by Boeing and Airbus to have never recorded a fatality.

The 777 first flew in 1994, and was introduced into commercial service in 1995. Boeing had delivered 1,100 of the aircraft around the world as of last year.

"We're closely monitoring reports on Malaysia flight MH370," Boeing tweeted. "Our thoughts are with everyone on board."

(Reuters) - No signal had been picked up from a Malaysia Airlines Boeing B777-200 aircraft flight carrying 239 passengers and crew from Kuala Lumpur to Beijing, a Vietnamese rescue official said on Saturday.

"We have been seeking but no signal from the plane yet," Pham Hien, director of a Vietnam maritime search and rescue coordination centre in Vung Tau, told Reuters by telephone.

Vietnamese and Chinese media had reported that a signal from the plane had been picked up. The reports did not identify what kind of signal.

"The information on local media about the signal near the Cape Ca Mau was inaccurate," Pham said.

LOL

I don't .

I really wanted to thank you for the persistent effort on this one, but then I said to myself: "why not to let him do his thing first? It'll make this whole thing way more alive. What better then some extra feeling to this ongoing dry report?" :cheers: and thanks for the effort, as always.
A real success can be achieved only if you help everybody else to fail.

Description:

Former Transportation Inspector General Mary Schiavo speaks about the importance of quickly finding the missing plane. A missing Malaysia Airliner carrying 229 people crashed off the southern coast of Vietnam, Vietnamese and Chinese state media reported Saturday, both citing Vietnam's military. But Malaysia has no information that any wreckage has been found of the missing plane and no confirmation of a crash, acting transport minister Datuk Seri Hishammuddin Hussein told journalists Saturday. The reports came hours after Malaysia Airlines Flight MH370, traveling from Kuala Lumpur to Beijing, disappeared. Air traffic controllers lost contact with the aircraft about 2:40 a.m. local time (1:40 p.m. ET Friday), Malaysia Airlines Vice President of Operations Control Fuad Sharuji said on CNN's "AC360." "At the moment we have no idea where this aircraft is right now," Sharuji said.

The fate of a Malaysia Airlines flight carrying 239 people remains unclear after a senior Vietnamese navy official said the country's armed forces still have no information on the fate of the airliner, which went missing early Saturday.

Vietnamese state-run media earlier reported, citing the country's navy, that flight MH370 Kuala Lumpur to Beijing crashed into the sea about 153 nautical miles (283 kilometers) off Vietnam's coast.

But the Vietnamese commander for the region, Navy Adm. Ngo Van Phat, said the location provided by state media was in fact the area where Malaysian authorities lost contact with the plane, and the precise location of the jet--and what happened to it--remain unknown. "We are standing by now, waiting for orders from our leaders to launch search and rescue operations," Adm. Phat told The Wall Street Journal. "We have been notified by Malaysian rescue authorities that the area is about 153 miles from Vietnam's Tho Chu island. That area will be accessed faster from Malaysia or Thailand."

Malaysian officials also say they have no information on the missing plane's location.

The Boeing 777-200ER departed from Kuala Lumpur 12:41 a.m. local time with 227 passengers and 12 crew members and was scheduled to land in Beijing at 6:30 a.m., Malaysia Airlines said in a statement.

Malaysia Airlines Chief Executive Ahmad Jauhari Yahya told a news conference that the airline lost contact with the aircraft between Malaysian and Vietnamese airspace and that there were no reports of bad weather along the route. Mr. Ahmad said the missing plane didn't send a distress signal and had enough fuel to fly an extra two hours.

That last part seems odd... You'd think if in trouble they'd radio in? but nothing at all...
