    a
    Anderson Cooper's show said they are notifying all the families of the passengers. It doesn't look good.

    NBC just did a national news special report break during Dateline… doesn't sound good, at all.

    Here is the flight tracking information for the flight. It looks like it wasn't in the air very long before things were not being updated anymore. Boggling how a flight could just go "missing" with all the technology there is now. Prayers!

    It is now 10am in Beijing... so the plane is 3.5 hours late.
    Geography is NOT my strong point... however I looked at a map.

    2 hours into the flight they SHOULD have not been over the water anymore.

    I don't know if this link will work, I haven't figured out the new google maps yet.

    From my link above:

    9:30am - (UNOFFICIAL) Flight MH370 has resurfaced and landed safely in Nanming, China. Early reports say that the aircraft had experienced a cockpit electronics malfunction.

    As of this moment, the flight crew and all 239 passengers onboard are believed to be unharmed as some of the crew has already informed their families of their safety.

    More updates to come.

    Please be true.

    That was posted at almost the exact same time as the Makaysia Airlines facebook updated...
    I would think in 45 minutes the facebook would have been updated.

    Hopefully the facebook is just slow...

    I also can't find that update anywhere else.
    All I see is this... but it's 10:30 in Beijing and Malaysia so I'm not sure what it means if anything...
    (Someone on twitter said it's eastern time, so 8 minutes from now.)
