A father-of-two left his wedding ring and watch to give to his children in case something happened to him before boarding the missing Malaysia Airlines flight as he flew out to start a dream job in Mongolia. Mechanical engineer Paul Weeks, 39, of Perth, Australia, was on the flight as he made his way to his first shift in a fly-in fly-out job. His wife Danica has revealed how he left the objects with her to give to their two boys if something was to happen to him.
The former soldier, who was born in New Zealand, moved his young family to Perth after their home in Christchurch was devastated by earthquakes. Mr Weeks was believed to have got a new job with Transwest Mongolia. Mrs Weeks said before he left he took 'lots of photos' of his family.
The manifest included 152 passengers from China, 38 from Malaysia, seven from Indonesia, six from Australia, five from India, three from the U.S., and others from Indonesia, France, New Zealand, Canada, Ukraine, Russia, Taiwan and the Netherlands.
Among those travelling on the flight was a group of eight Chinese and 12 Malaysian employees of Austin, Texas, semiconductor company Freescale, which said it was assembling 'around-the-clock support' for their families.
I it's not a terroristic attack.. I'm doubting that's what it is.. But if the pilot descends at a significant rate it could make everyone on the plane including the pilot loose consciousness which has happened before and i believe this would most likely be the situation in this case if not hijacked.. Unlikely but surly possible. Pieces of the plane where found in the ocean but that's all because of the current

It's been gone for 2.5 hours.
Editor's note: Missing Malaysia Airlines plane, a Boeing 777-2300, was due to arrive in Beijing at 6:30 am local time. It is now 9:02 am in Beijing. - Stephanie
I appreciate that but at the same time if it has gone down The reasons are still unclear. It may well have been downed by terrorists or a missile but it may have also been due to pilot error, weather or mechanical failure and without further discoveries and reports we just don't know.
debris have been found in the ocean I had just found out this morning, not quite sure if it's actually from the plane or not but they said parts have been found but the plane itself hasn't due to ocean current... I'm wondering how much of the plane could be found and how much would explode upon impact of the ocean... Curious. There has to be atleast 2 pieces of the plane of great size
We are approaching day 7.
Can we rule out that the plane has crashed in the sea ?
I say this because by now the floating debris (wherever they are located ) would at least have been seen by someone in the area ( fishermen, container ship etc.. ).
my dad had just told me it was picked up by satellite recently and the Malaysians went to the site of the debris not considering the current of the ocean therefore it wasn't present when they arrived

Is the report that you saw on the debris from this morning? The so called debris from a day or two ago has been checked out and they "said" it was not from the plane.
edit on 3/14/2014 by seentoomuch because: (no reason given)
So Media is thinking Andaman Islands...forget searching there, search where you think the end location is bc if that thing flew there, it refueled and is gone....
Could the initial reports of it landing with Chinese military escort be true? And there was a hostage situation?
