Malaysian air force plane missing

MOSCOW (Sputnik) – A search and rescue mission has been launched for a missing Royal Malaysia Air Force aircraft, local media cited the air force as saying in a statement Thursday.

“The aircraft departed from the Kuantan air base at 11am [03:00 GMT] and lost contact at 11.30am near the Pahang-Terengganu border,” Channel News Asia said.

Defense Minister Hishammuddin Hussein has received the “troubling news” and said he hopes everybody is safe.
