In one of the most baffling mysteries in recent aviation history, a massive search operation for the Malaysia Airlines Boeing 777-200ER that disappeared on March 8 has so far found no trace of the aircraft or the 239 passengers and crew. Families of the passengers, as well curious onlookers around the world, wait for some sign of the missing plane or an explanation for its disappearance.

In this picture, Chinese students stand around lit-up candles to pray for the passengers aboard the missing plane at a school in Zhuji city, in Zhejiang province, China on March 10, 2014. The plane's scheduled destination was Beijing, China.
