One passenger is missing after a blast on a commercial airliner that ripped a hole in its fuselage shortly after take-off from Somalia's capital, the airline said Thursday.Aviation experts and the pilot who landed the plane safely in Mogadishu after the explosion on Tuesday have said they fear the blast was a bomb.It was not clear if the missing passenger had been on the plane and was potentially blown up in the blast – or sucked out through the ragged hole ripped in the metal – or if there was some miscounting with the list of those on board.Vodopivec added that the blast did not damage the navigation systems, and while cabin pressure was lost, he was able to guide the plane back safely to land at Mogadishu airport.
