If this was done by terrorists it might have been done by the Xuigers that were responsible last week for the stabbing attacks in China since this flight was going to China.

I would jump to conclusions, It might have been the Zula AF.

I hope it is not terrorist attack, we will find out soon, just now BBC reported two passengers were not on board as reported, one lucky fellow was Italian other I think Austrian.

5 Indians among the missing.

Prayers for all,

Majority of the passengers are Chinese nationals. The Chinese Coast Guard is sending all nearby vessels towards the direction of the last known coordinance of the airplane.

A Vietnamese search plane spotted oil in the water and think the plane may have went down there. The oil slick is between 6-9 miles long.

I am praying for a good outcome but it doesn't look good.

The two passenger were on board just not the people who originally owned the passports.

IMO, I think it's just a couple of isolated cases of identity passport theft that was exposed after the fact.

I hope so. It's unusual that there wasn't time for a Mayday radio call.
