MYSTERIOUS, intriguing and challenging are some of the expressions that describe what is happening in the aftermath of the disappearance of Malaysian Airlines (MAS) flight MH370, bound for Beijing in the wee hours of March 8. Everyone is trying to make sense of what could have caused a huge object, such as a state-of-the-art Boeing 777 airliner with 239 passengers and crew on board, to have gone so completely missing -- one second a blip on a radar screen and the next, nothing. Four days into the sea and air search-and- rescue (SAR) by several nations have turned up nothing. Oil slicks tested and some debris picked up only deepen the mystery as nothing turned out to be from flight MH370. Experts churn out educated guesses but no evidence. The Pentagon has discounted any mid-air explosions in the vicinity where it vanished.
