MH370: Flight MH370 Ended In The Southern Indian Ocean

“All right, good night,” was the last transmission from Malaysia Airlines flight MH370 from Kuala Lumpur bound for Beijing. 2 minutes later, the aircraft’s transponder was switched off and all contact with the airplane lost.

I had held off writing about this as hope was still alive at the start of this incident and there was already plenty of speculation on the news channels. You would imagine established news publications and networks would do a better job but unfortunately, there also was a lack of real news.

Even finding out where MH370 went down was a breakthrough and getting to the location takes time. It is a hostile environment and mother nature still rules the planet.

We tend to take air travel for granted these days but there is and remains a bit of risk involved. This is one of the reasons why I like to travel, everything is an adventure and all adventures come with risks. We feel for the families who have lost their loved ones and our heartfelt prayers go out to them.

MH370: Malaysia Remembers And Honours The Flight

Malaysians from all walks of life shared the same concerns and heartbreak at the news. Most of us can understand the grief and frustration felt by the families who have lost friends and family.

As the recovery efforts are still on-going, there are hundreds of men and women who are working to recovery the downed airplane. It is already proven to be challenging and will take some time before we can start to get some answers.

It renews my faith in mankind when nations and people from all over the world express their concern and extend a helping hand in times like this. Thank you.
