With all the new technology making our world a smaller place it is truly difficult to understand how a Boeing 777 carrying 239 people can totally disappear. However that is what has happened in the year 2014.
On Saturday it will be 2 weeks since the Malaysia Airlines flight MH370 went missing and there is still no evidence to suggest where one earth it could be, which is deeply upsetting for the families and friends of those who boarded that flight.
