Missing Flight 370

Malaysia Airlines Flight MH 370, which was heading from Kuala Lumpur to Beijing early Saturday morning, disappeared without a trace left behind. The flight, which was carrying 227 passengers and 12 crew members, flew across Malaysia and crossed the eastern coast into the Gulf of Thailand at 35,000 feet where it then disappeared from radar screens.  The mystery of Flight 370 is unlike anything that aviation has ever known before. Flights have gone missing before, but this flight seems to have disappeared into thin air.  The airline received no distress signals from the pilots suggesting any tragic events. The search and rescue mission has grown to nine aircraft and 24 ships from nine countries, which have been searching throughout the Gulf of Thailand on the eastern side of Malaysia. Some theorists say if something went wrong with the plane at the altitude that it was flying, it could have disintegrated in mid-air. Many theories are floating around the internet as to what happened to the missing flight, but as of now, there is no answer.
