The missing Malaysia Airlines aircraft was a 777-2H6ER with tail number 9M-MRO and serial number 28420. According to Aviation Week Intelligence Network's Fleet database, the aircraft was built in April 2002 and delivered to Malaysia Airlines on May 31, 2002. Powering the aircraft were two Rolls-Royce Trent 892B-17 engines. It was the 404th 777 off the production line.
