liveatc over wmkk only covers norther and western sector of Lumpur atc although sometimes it tuned to other sector/frequency.. MH370 bound to Beijing is covered by eastern sector of Lumpur atc.. so.. there will be no archived / recoding regarding this MH370..
my prey are with all people on-board...

Did they use the same call sign? It would be interesting if they did because they don't know the fate of MAS370 from yesterday.

According to FlightAware, MAS370 is currently enroute to Beijing. So if seems they are using the same flight number

Still no news of finding the plane even with so many navies searching in the area.  The Malaysian government have requested the help of the FBI NTSB to help in the investigations as there are more evidence to indicate that it is a terror related incident.

At least Gulf of Thailand is shallow water - most of it < 200 ft, so accessible by tech Scuba. Finding and recovering the plane should be fairly quick, unlike, for example, the Air France flight.

There is also a possibility that the airplane turned around...

A piece of composite material has been observed floating on the surface. It is suspected that this is an interior trim section from one of the cabin doors... (see AvHerald article for photo) 

"Vietnam's navy has spotted a floating object about 80 kilometers (50 miles) southwest of Vietnam's Tho Chu Island, which is located off the country's southwest coast in the Gulf of Thailand, Vietnam National Search and Rescue Committee Spokesman Hung Nguyen told CNN. The object was spotted by a Vietnamese navy rescue aircraft at about 7:30 a.m. ET Sunday (6:30 p.m. local time). Due to the dark, the navy aircraft could not get close enough to identify the floating object, and was recalled to base. Three search and rescue boats have since been deployed to that location."

Oil slick found as well:

"Sunday, March 09, 02:43 PM MYT +0800 Malaysia Airlines MH370 Flight Incident - 8th Media Statement

Statement by MAS GCEO, Ahmad Jauhari Yahya

Together with all those affected by the MH370 incident, we understand the need to provide regular updates on the progress of the search and rescue operations.  As the hours turn into days, we at Malaysia Airlines are similarly anxious and we appreciate the patience, support and prayers from everyone.

We however acknowledge that the most affected group in this incident is the families of those on-board. As such, our primary focus at this point in time is to care for the families. This means providing them with timely information, travel facilities, accommodation, meals and emotional support. Initial financial assistance has been given out to all families. Caregivers are already assigned to each family and they are trained staff and volunteers from Malaysia and Australia.

Family members of the MH370 passengers from Beijing who wish to travel will be flown in stages to Kuala Lumpur on the available flights.  We are also communicating with the families from other nations to similarly arrange for their travel to Kuala Lumpur.

In the event flight MH370 is located, a Response Control Centre (RCC) in the area will be activated to support the needs of families.

The airline continues to work with the authorities and we appreciate the help we are receiving from all parties during this critical and difficult time"

Something which struck me as disturbing about this incident involving MH 370 was the premature release of the passenger manifest (yesterday) on Malaysian Airlines website.  Having served on an emergency response team for a major airline I find it difficult to believe all next of kin would have been notified so quickly.  Also, the Italian passport who's rightful owner was found not to have boarded MH 370 would have been known prior to publishing his name online.

The pilot of another flight told a Malaysian newspaper he had made brief contact with the plane via his emergency frequency, at the request of Vietnamese aviation authorities who had been unable to reach it as expected. Vietnam has said it believes the flight never entered its airspace

Probably not related to the incident, but worth mentioning that the aircraft involved is 9M-MRO (Boeing 777-2H6/ER cn 28420/404), this very same aircraft had it's wingtip damaged in a ground collision in August 2012 at Shanghai with a China Eastern Airways Airbus A340-600 ...

http://www.nbcnews.com/storyline/missing-jet/missing-malaysia-airlines-jet-had-ground-collision-2012-n47706

It does make the mind recall China Airlines 611...on May 25, 2002, while operating the Taipei–Hong Kong route, Boeing 747-209B B-18255 broke up in-flight 20 minutes into the flight, killing all on board. The aircraft had suffered a tailstrike in 1980, was repaired, and put back into service. The repair work was sub-standard. While it lasted 22 years, it was eventually to blame for the crash.
