I would have thought with modern technology they should know exactly where it is at all times.

Not good and my thoughts are with the crew, passengers and their families.

It's a Boeing 777-200 series and it could be potentially the first hull loss with fatalities for this series of aircraft. There are currently over 1000, 777-200 series in service, worldwide.

Let's hope it's located with survivors as it can't possibly be still airborne as it is now hours overdue.

The plane departed 12.41am on 8 March and lost contact with Subang Air Traffic Control at 2.40am, Saturday.

In the air for two hours, then nothing.
