So, Where is Flight MH370?

Tomorrow it's going to be a week since the plane stopped responding. A massive international search and rescue operation -- including repositioned Chinese satellites -- hasn't really brought any answers to the families of the 239 people that were on board.

This reminded me of the time when a plane on which my dad was travelling was hijacked. When he returned safely I eventually went up to him to ask how it all went. I was especially curious because I had been told the story of the daring raid at Entebbe before and had found it amazing.

Yeah, so he told me it went ok. That he negotiated with the hijackers and pleaded for stuff some of the women needed or whatever. Our local newspapers carried the story.

The plot of this story is getting thicker by the day.

Here's a new chapter. And learn about the live feedback you get from Boeing when you buy one of its planes.

It could have been flying for more than seven hours after it "disappeared": that's an amazingly large area to search.
