TRAGEDY IN THE AIR

Air tragedies took to the skies in 2014 when two air­crafts from na­tional car­rier Malaysia Air­lines suf­fered two air tragedies. On 8 March, flight MH370 mys­te­ri­ously dis­ap­peared while fly­ing from Kuala Lumpur In­ter­na­tional Air­port to Bei­jing Cap­i­tal In­ter­na­tional Air­port. The Boe­ing 777-200ER, car­ry­ing 227 pas­sen­gers and 12 crewmem­bers, dis­ap­peared from air traf­fic con­trollers’ radar screens at 01:22MYT. Four months later, flight MH17 from Am­s­ter­dam to Kuala Lumpur was shot down on 17 July while fly­ing over eastern Ukraine, killing all 283 pas­sen­gers and 15 crewmem­bers on­board.
