  • Another mystery?


  • And who knows what really happened! It could have been a human mistake, a technical problem, a terrorist attack. Now they say that smoke on the plane was detected before the crash.
    Poor people!!


  • So upsetting. There was also one British/Australian on the plane.


  • This is of great concern. There has been reports of unrest in Egypt recently and warnings from our Dept. of Foreign Affairs. Lets hope our suspicions are wrong, the people are in flotation vests and found safe very quickly.


  • Too many planes going missing. Sad that we automatically think foul play – but in this day it tends to be the case


  • Very scary. My husband has denied to fly since Malaysian flight went missing.


  • Thoughts are with the family and prayers for the families that are missing


  • Very frightening for all the families.


  • With satellites all around it’s hard for a plane to go missing, but I hope it is found and all on board are okay.


  • When will this stop happening :(
    My thoughts are will all involved :(


  • Oh no, not another one?! Usually when these planes are listed as ‘missing’ they’re found in pieces :,(


  • Let’s hope it is found and every-one on board is safe and alive.


  • How terrible. I hope everyone is ok
