How does a Boeing 777 disappear with out a trace?

It is going on two weeks since Malaysia Airlines flight 370 vanished into thin air. Is it magic? Was David Copperfield onboard the flight? Perhaps, Stephen King was sitting in one of the rows? 

Three days into the disappearance during a press conference I remember specifically hearing the following words..

 “We are intensifying the search for the missing airliner.”

Seriously?! Who would have imagined going into day three we would be intensifying the search. Day three, and, there is still no clues about what happened to a Boeing 777 carrying 239 people, including the 12 person flight crew. The Boeing jet was headed to Beijing from Kuala Lumpur, only 40 minutes into its flight when it appeared to have disappeared off the grid.

Now, almost two weeks later we know that  239 people and a BIG airplane remains a mystery. I cannot imagine how the family members are dealing with the emotional toll day after day of not knowing where there loved one is and if he or she is dead or alive.

I am praying…for the crew and passengers, and their families, for the answers about what happened to the plane and the people.

Is anyone else surprised that the plane’s transponder could be shut of from inside the cockpit? Why would it ever be required to be shut off anyway?

Gee Wally I was feeling so safe and secure with all the changes implemented since 9-11, but now…
