    A U.S. Navy MH-60R Sea Hawk helicopter lands aboard Pinckney during a crew swap before returning on task in the search and rescue for the missing Malaysian airlines flight MH370 on March 9, 2013 at sea in the Gulf of Thailand. The flight had 227 passengers from 14 nations, mainly China, and 12 crew members. According to the Malaysia Airlines website, three Americans, including one infant, were also aboard.

    There is little evidence that Malaysian Airlines Flight 370 was brought down by an act of terrorism, NBC News Reported. No electronic "chatter" from known terror groups has been detected three days after the last contact with the missing China-bound flight. U.S. federal investigators are looking over surveillance video from the flight's point of origin and travel patterns corresponding with two stolen passports that were used to board the aircraft. Al-Qaeda and other fundamentalist groups normally seek credit for attacks that they've organized.
