San Luis Obispo, CA (AIP) – Malaysia Airlines spokesman Najib Vong confirmed Thursday that Malaysia Flight 360 has been has finally been located and recovered, drawing to a close the multi-national search and rescue mission that has been hunting the missing aircraft since February of this year.
“I was stunned,” said Michael Krenwich, a 19-year old part time Sip’N’Go employee and graduate of San Luis Obispo High School. “I saw on the news that the plane had gone missing so I took some time looking around my apartment – in the closet, in the kitchen cabinet – and finally found the damn thing under my living room couch next to my lost wheelbarrow game piece from the Monopoly set.”
Malaysia Airline spokesman Vong had no explanation as to how the plane ended up under the brown faux suede couch in Krenwich’s apartment.
“Our original search for Flight 360 began in the Indian Ocean,” said Vong, speaking via satellite phone from Kuala Lumpur. “We later expanded the search to include Los Angeles and Compton. We don’t really know how it got so much further north.
“But hell, we’ve lost like nine planes in the past six months. One was found in a thrift store in Vancouver (British Columbia). We just don’t seem to be able to keep track of the damn things.”
“Hey, I understand,” said Krenwich. “Do you have any idea how many cell phones I’ve lost? It can happen to anyone.”
The plane Krenwich located should not be confused with Malaysia Airlines flight 370 which disappeared on March 8, 2014 shortly after takeoff from Kuala Lumpur International Airport with 227 passengers and 12 crew members. That plane remains missing.
