Oklahoma has a connection to the missing Malaysian jetliner that disappeared last Friday. A graduate from Oklahoma Christian University was aboard the missing airplane. According to a March 8 report by KWTV Channel 9 News in Oklahoma City, Philip Wood graduated from OCU in 1985.

The missing Malaysian airplane was last seen above the South China Sea. It disappeared and has yet to be found. The Vietnamese air force found two oil spills in the area where the airplane disappeared, but it is unknown if the oil spills are related to the missing jetliner. This was the first sign that the missing Malaysian airplane might have crashed.

Not only is it unknown if the oil spills are related to the missing airplane, it is also unknown if the Malaysian jetliner actually crashed. No one knows what happened to the missing plane of the hundreds of people aboard.

One unusual fact is known about the missing Malaysian airplane – two stolen passports were used to board the airplane. Because of that, terrorism can not be ruled out. The Italian passport and the Austrian passport were both stolen in Thailand.
