The name “Malaysia Airlines” inspires little confidence these days, so another mishap is the last thing the company needed, even if it was relatively minor. On Monday, a Malaysia Airlines flight bound for Bangalore, India was forced to make an emergency landing in Kuala Lumpur. Flight 192’s tire burst upon takeoff, and the pilot was told to turn back after debris was found on the runway. The flight landed safely and is scheduled to depart again later in the day. Meanwhile, the Australian agency coordinating the search for Flight 370 said the Bluefin-21 submarine has completed its eighth underwater mission. It has now covered two thirds of the underwater search area, but “no contacts of interest have been found.”
