                    Wow.

                    I do hope there are surrvivors, but in situations like this with planes crashing into bodies of water missing for hours, we rarely see that.

                        I can't believe this, it was 6hrs after it was supposed to arrive and then they figure out something is wrong. Then they go well maybe it made an emergency landing somewhere. The way this sounds I don't ever want to fly there because its quite clear they don't have a clue about anything.

                          "The plane is in ruins. We are sending teams to the location. The plane was found around 20 kilometres from Polewali (town) in the mountains. The weather is clear,"

                          "Ninety people have been confirmed dead but we do not know the condition of the others. The location is 700 metres high,"
