Yesterday a Vietnamese search team said they had found what they believe is part of a door and an airplane’s tail, but today, the Malaysian Civil Aviation Chief said it was a false alarm as nothing from the missing plane has been found.
“Unfortunately we have not found anything that appears to be objects from the aircraft, let alone the aircraft. As far as we are concerned, we have to find the aircraft, we have to find a piece of the aircraft if possible.’ he told a news conference today.
It’s also been revealed that aside from 2 passengers boarding the plane using stolen passports, 5 other passengers checked on to the flight but did not board the plane. Their baggage was removed before the plane departed.
Dozens of ships and aircraft from seven countries are searching the seas around Malaysia and south of Vietnam, but so far nothing.
People are speculating that maybe the plane was hijacked, flew under the radar, to land somewhere. If this happened then it means the passengers are alive somewhere, but this theory is very unlikely. Continue to see photos of some of the passengers on the missing plane…
