    They expect it crashed someplace.

    :(

    I hope they find them soon and many are still alive.

    You'd think the ELT would have been located by now.

    Looking at the graph you posted it seems strange they took so long to get to FL35. It crashed 2hrs after takeoff... But your chart shows it at 22 thousand feet, hours into the flight. Or am I reading it wrong?

    Sad. Why I don't fly. Like my chances more being in a car crash than plane crash.

    It's 2014. You don't just lose planes.

    I thought I did post a thumbnail. Was that in another thread? Did it get removed? copyright stuff? :dunno:

    It happens. Flying is relatively safe, but there are so many things that can go wrong. Hopefully, these people lost consciousness long before that plane plunged into the ocean. Very sad...
