    Ugly indeed. Toronto Star reports that plane signals have been detected 120 km off Vietnamese coast. I can't do links on my phone though.

    Apparently Vietnamese radar lost track of them off Vietnam's southern coast. With nothing heard for this long we have to assume it has been lost. It will be night there now, so searching will be more difficult. Sounds like 6 Australians on board. Bloody terrible.

    Trust gets you killed, love gets you hurt, and being REAL gets you hated.

    Italy's Foreign Ministry said the Italian man who was listed as being a passenger, Luigi Maraldi, was traveling in Thailand and was not aboard the plane. It said he reported his passport stolen last August.
    Austria's Foreign Ministry confirmed that a name listed on the manifest matched an Austrian passport reported stolen two years ago in Thailand. It said the Austrian was not on the plane, but would not confirm the person's identity.
