This iReport is part of an assignment:
THE FLIGHT 370 777 MYSTERY...HOW CAN A MODERN AIRCRAFT JUST DISAPPEAR ?
LIKE A SCI-FI NIGHTMARE !
It's extremely sad and perpetually agonizing when peoples lives are suddenly SHATTERED by the loss of loved ones !
The sudden disappearance in thin air of a 777 in Asia where I live brings this VIVIDLY home like a sledgehammer hitting you !
We can only guess, theorize and assume what MIGHT have caused a modern plane with experienced pilots to just VANISH ! perhaps the answer will eventually only come if submarines enter the search.
I have flown all over the World for many years but I only feel relief and safe when a plane lands !
There's something strange about being 35-40000 feet in the skies, birds were designed to fly.....humans weren't !
At least on a ship there are lifeboats and vests you do have a fighting chance of survival.....same goes for train and road travel.....but when your up there 7 miles in an aircraft travelling at more than 500 MPH if there's a mishap there's only ONE way to go and that's down !
