Left behind: Mourning the missing of Flight MH370


Seven months on, loved ones of passengers on a missing Malaysian airliner derive what comfort they can going forward from what’s left behind. Malaysia Airlines Flight MH370, with 239 mostly Chinese people on board, disappeared on March 8 about an hour into a routine journey from Kuala Lumpur to Beijing in the world’s greatest aviation mystery. More than two dozen countries have been involved in the air, sea and underwater search for the Boeing 777 but months of sorties failed to turn up any trace – even after narrowing the search area to the southern Indian Ocean – long after batteries on the black box voice and data recorders had gone flat. –By Reuters
