How does a commercial airplane full of passengers just disappear? It sounds like something out of a science fiction movie. Unfortunately for the families of the 239 passengers aboard the flight, it is more of a horror story. The aircraft was last seen on Sunday hundreds of miles from the regular path the plane should have been taking.
For many people, the first thought is an act of terrorism is the cause. Anthony Amado first thought this when hearing about the disappearance of the Malaysian flight. “I didn’t want to jump to the conclusion, but with the way the world is right now, it is hard not to think of that scenario first”, said Anthony Amado.
CIA, International officials and the Malaysian government have no reason to suspect terrorism, but at this point aren’t ruling anything out. The focus right now is combing hundreds of miles of land and sea, searching for any sign of the missing flight.
