After more than 30 hours without contact with the aircraft, Malaysia Airlines told family members they should “prepare themselves for the worst,” Hugh Dunleavy, the commercial director for the airline, told reporters. 

One News report on 10-3-2014 at 2:18 am:  Vietnamese authorities searching waters for the missing Boeing 777 jetliner have spotted an object Sunday that they suspected was one of the plane’s doors.

The state-run Thanh Nien newspaper cited Lt. Gen. Vo Van Tuan, deputy chief of staff of Vietnam’s army, as saying searchers in a low-flying plane had spotted an object suspected of being a door from the missing jet.

It was found in waters about 90 kilometres south of Tho Chu island, in the same area where oil slicks were spotted Saturday.

“From this object, hopefully (we) will find the missing plane,” Tuan said. Thanh Nien said two ships from the maritime police were heading to the site.

The missing plane apparently fell from the sky at cruising altitude in fine weather, and the pilots were either unable or had no time to send a distress signal – unusual circumstances under which a modern jetliner operated by a professional airline would crash.

Malaysia’s air force chief, Rodzali Daud, said radar indicated that the plane may have turned back, but did not give further details on which direction it went or how far it veered off course.

“We are trying to make sense of this,” Daud said at a news conference. “The military radar indicated that the aircraft may have made aBBC, turn back, and in some parts this was corroborated by civilian radar.”

After more than 30 hours without contact with the aircraft, Malaysia Airlines told family members they should “prepare themselves for the worst,” Hugh Dunleavy, the commercial director for the airline, told reporters.

  1. Please focus.
    Aircraft went missing very early morning.
    What was DCA doing till MAS announcement at around 7.30am?
    The crucial 5 hours…what happened?
    Did DCA ask help from Cambodia, Vietnam, Thailand?
    Ada bagi tahu PM and Transport Minister?
    If yes, what were the folks doing in Janda Baik even after MAS made the announcement?

    DCA is accountable for the first 5 hours and should be open/honest/frank to explain what it did during that crucial period.
