Missing Malaysian Airlines Plane Possibly Crashed Off The Vietnam Coast

malaysian airlines plane missing

What a heartbreaking thing to deal with!

A Malaysian Airlines Boeing 777 went missing during a flight from Kuala Lumpur to Beijing, and they think they may know what happened to it.

According to the Associated Press, planes from the Vietnamese air force found two large oil slicks in the water, which are consistent with a plane crash. This is leading them to assume that the plane crashed sometime early Saturday, around the time they lost communication with the aircraft. It never even sent a distress signal.

There were 239 people onboard, made up of 227 passengers and 12 crew members. Reportedly, 154 passengers were Chinese or Taiwanese, 38 were Malaysian, and three were American, including one infant.

Does it get any more tragic?!

Nearby countries are helping in the search, with the Philippines sending both their air force and navy out to look for the presumably downed plane, and Vietnamese fisherman are keeping an eye out too.

Our thoughts and prayers are with all of the family and friends involved, especially as they await news on their loved ones.
