Vietnam to check floating lifeboat-like object at sea.

HANOI, March 10 - Vietnam is sending aircraft to check up if a lifeboat-like floating object found at sea comes from the missing Malaysian Airlines jet, a pilot told Xinhua on Monday.

The floating object is located at 081650 North (Latitude) and 105110 East (Longitude), according to the pilot.

One Mi 171 helicopter and DHC6 seaplane of Vietnamese navy are leaving for the spot, Tran Van Quang, commander of regiment 917, Division 370 of the Air and Air defense force told Xinhua by phone.

Quang, who is also pilot of the Mi 171, said that the two aircraft are ready to head for the location from Phu Quoc island in southern Vietnam where a field headquarters for search and rescue operation was set up.

Quang said it will take the Mi 171 an hour and 20 minutes to reach the location where the object was spotted.

Earlier, Malaysia informed Vietnam that it spotted a lifeboat- like object at sea and asked Vietnam to verify if it belongs to the missing plane.

Flight MH370, operated by a Malaysia Airlines' Boeing 777-200 carrying 12 crew members and 227 passengers including 154 Chinese, lost contact with air traffic control early on Saturday on its way from Kuala Lumpur to Beijing.

Well, the way they make shows is, they make one show. That show's called a pilot. Then they show that show to the people who make shows, and on the strength of that one show they decide if they're going to make more shows.

Like you, I used to think the world was this great place where everybody lived by the same standards I did, then some kid with a nail showed me I was living in his world, a world where chaos rules not order, a world where righteousness is not rewarded. That's Cesar's world, and if you're not willing to play by his rules, then you're gonna have to pay the price.

You think water moves fast? You should see ice. It moves like it has a mind. Like it knows it killed the world once and got a taste for murder. After the avalanche, it took us a week to climb out. Now, I don't know exactly when we turned on each other, but I know that seven of us survived the slide... and only five made it out. Now we took an oath, that I'm breaking now. We said we'd say it was the snow that killed the other two, but it wasn't. Nature is lethal but it doesn't hold a candle to man.

You see? It's curious. Ted did figure it out - time travel. And when we get back, we gonna tell everyone. How it's possible, how it's done, what the dangers are. But then why fifty years in the future when the spacecraft encounters a black hole does the computer call it an 'unknown entry event'? Why don't they know? If they don't know, that means we never told anyone. And if we never told anyone it means we never made it back. Hence we die down here. Just as a matter of deductive logic.
