In what appears to be a clear gag, the missing Malaysia Airline Boeing 777 Flight MH370 is reportedly up sale on Craigslist for an insane 70 dollars.

The ill-fated passenger jet went missing on 8th March and since then authorities have been unable to trace the plane carrying 239 people onboard.

However, that doesn't stop people from putting it up for sale, even if the whereabouts of the actual plane are still mysterious.

According to Cnet, the plane is apparently on sale on the Vietnam Craigslist for $15 million, however, it seems as if the poster didn't realise that there's difference between US dollars and Vietnam's currency, the Dong, as the said amount comes up to just 70 US dollars.

However, a phone number is omitted from the ad.

The report added that such kind of insensitive joke tend to highlight the rather ridiculous media treatment the missing plane story has been getting, with experts opining on every thin hypotheses and media going all the way to cover each detail.
