Missing AirAsia flight QZ8501

My sincerest condolences to all the passengers and families of those taking QZ8501. It is really a tragedy, to have so many air disasters in a short time. As I also travel yearly, I can empathize with all the passengers, the crew, and finally the family and friends of those who took the flight. God bless them, and may they rest in peace.

Eerie Coincidence of Missing Flight Numbers (Math)

Source: Hardwarezone

Someone from Hardwarezone did a calculation of the flight numbers of the missing flights recently (MH17 + MH370 + QZ8501)

17+370+8501=8888 !!

For Westerners who may not know the significance of 8888, it is one of the most auspicious 4 dight numbers for Chinese, because "8" rhymes with 发 ("fa", "huat", which means prosper). Any car license plate "8888" must have cost a bomb for the owner.

But why does the flight numbers add up to "8888", such an eerie coincidence. Nobody knows...

Math equation could help find missing Malaysian plane

Math, specifically Bayesian Search Theory, could help find the missing Malaysian plane. Hopefully it can be applied with success like in the case of Air France Flight 447.
