Malaysia Airlines Flight 370 search grows as pilots face increased scrutiny
CNN
Malaysian Prime Minister Najib Razak told reporters on Saturday that the plane veered off course due to apparent deliberate action taken by somebody on board.
Chelsea White's insight:

This article is important because it begins to address some of the questions that people have about whether this was an act of terrorism or at least planned by those operating the plane especially with the known that there were two people aboard with stolen passports. The pilots' homes being searched and the engineers being questioned shows that they think this could have had an end game in mind and this raises a huge issue of safety when flying domestically and internationally since there were Americans aboard this flight.

Malaysian jet's disappearance a 'deliberate' action, PM says

With new clues, the search for the missing Malaysian Airlines plane entered a second agonizing week.
Chelsea White's insight:

This article is from the New York Times on Saturday when the investigation into the missing plane was considered a criminal inquiry after confirming that the plane was diverted when it disappeared. Again, I am looking into how this event will impact safety regulations at airlines and if it will close up the loophole that allows people to travel with stolen documents and also how this will impact people's comfort level while traveling by plane since we have members of the Coe College community who recently flew abroad for Spring Break.

239 people were aboard this airplane that went missing and a lot of people have been discussing why we do not have the technological capabilities to discover the missing plane however this article from the New York Times suggests that there is a technology from a satellite communications company that detected "Keep Alive" pings from the airplane when it disappeared and those could be used to help estimate the plane's location as the search continues into the Indian Ocean.

Chelsea White's insight:

I scooped this article as part of my research in order to show the advancements that have been made in airline safety in Asia and Southeast Asia and that this airline has some of the best safety protocols in the region and has not had a fatal airline accident since 1995 when 34 people were killed.

It has happened before.
Chelsea White's insight:

166 countries have come together to contribute to a database to prevent people from traveling with stolen documents but yet 4 out of 10 travelers in the billion people who travel internationally every year are not checked against this database which is one reason that two people were able to board the missing Malaysian plane with stolen passports.
