On Saturday 8th March 2014 Malaysia Airlines flight MH370 disappeared. The aircraft has not been found and the reasons for its' disappearance are not known.

The Boeing 777 had a crew of 12 and carried 227 passengers. Flight MH370 departed Kuala Lumpur at 12:41 am and was expected to land in Beijing at 6:30 am. Instead, the flight is believed to have ended in the south Indian Ocean.

Like most news that followed, even that was incorrect: air traffic controllers lost contact with flight MH370 at around 1:21am MYTMalaysian Time (MYT) is Coordinated Universal Time (UTC) + 8 hours.
