This article from the Associated Press details the Malaysian connection to Asia Air Flight 8501 that went missing today: http://bigstory.ap.org/article/848e48f7fa4d4300919883c612247ed7/missing-flight-3rd-malaysia-linked-incident
It’s ironic and fitting, in a way, that it has been a week and a half since we “lost” Malaysia Air Flight 370 and then the cast of Lost reunites at PaleyFest for the 10th anniversary of the show’s debut.
Several members of the Oceanic 815 crew came together along with the show’s creators and producers to dispel some of the myths about the show’s biggest mysteries (spoiler–they explain the church scene during the finale!)
Obviously I do not wish to make light of what’s going on with Malaysia Air Flight 370, but what I do like is that so many people are keeping their hopes up that the plane landed somewhere. Just like Schrodinger’s Cat, at this point the plane is neither crashed nor landed. There is still hope that it’s out there somewhere, intact, and the passengers are safe.
Thanks to Lost, we have hope.
