    Boeing Airlines, based in Chicago, has tweeted that it has assembled a team “for technical assistance” and in a separate tweet stated that the “Boeing team is now en route to assist on MH370.” The destination of the technical team was not stated in the tweets. In the meantime, concern continues to rise about the report that two passengers aboard Malaysia Airlines Flight MH370 that was headed for Beijing early Saturday were carrying stolen passports. An ABC News story reports that “Interpol says no country checked its database that held information about two stolen passports that were used to board an ill-fated Malaysia Airlines flight with 239 people on board,” despite the information being entered into the Interpol database on Thefts being entered into Interpol’s database of an Austrian passport in 2012 and an Italian passport last year. The Malaysian Boeing 777 jet disappeared after taking off from Kuala Lumpur and presumably by now would be out of fuel if it were still in the air. The ABC News story goes on to report that “Interpol said in a statement it was investigating all other passports used to board flight MH370 and was working to determine the ‘true identities’ of the passengers who used the stolen passports.”
