There's a Air Malaysia plane that went missing about the same time the COG and I were travelling. It set off from Kuala Lumpur and did not reach Bejing and they don't know where it is. It's like the Air France flight that disappeared some years ago and was only found recently.
It's always tragic, but having flown the same day, I feel heightened emotion about it. I'm so sorry for the passengers and crew and for their families. How terrible for them all.
