Thoughts and prayers to the families of those on board. I sincerely hope Paul (Vite1) wasn't on that flight nor any of his Asian friends...

Just read an article that said no distress signal was reported.

I'm thinking that could mean it was either shot down or something on board blew up.

It doesn't look good when a plane just disappears. May God bless the passengers and crew.

I would think radar would be able to show if it went down in one piece or not. Even if there was an explosion one of the flight crew should be able to at least get off a mayday call. I just hope that the terrorists haven't found a new trick, like putting a gas canister in the cockpit with a timed release or something crazy like that.
