The mysterious disappearance of Malaysian Airlines Flight 370 with 239 passengers and crew on board was enough to keep the world glued on for latest developments about the search that now involves about two dozen nations.

After more than two weeks of investigations, global interest on the subject matter started to wane, until Australian Prime Minister Tony Abbott announced last week the sighting by an Australian satellite of two objects on the southern Indian Ocean floating, which could possibly be the debris of the missing Boeing 777 jet.

On Monday night, Malaysian Prime Minister Najib Razak confirmed, based on analysis of satellite data, that the ill-fated flight indeed crashed at the Indian Ocean.

Despite the confirmation, interest on the aircraft will likely continue to be sustained as people want to know more details what really happened, and the fact that the Aussie military pilot who leads the search operations from the Australian side is a handsome chap.

Lieutenant Russell Adams became an instant celebrity, much like the way Crimean Attorney General Natalia Poklonskaya became an Internet sensation last week, spawning cheesy tweets from swooning female and gay fans.
