Malaysia Airlines Flight 370 (MH370) is still one of the greatest mysteries in aviation history, the plane disappeared over the South China Sea, back in 2014 on March 8, when it was en route from Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia to Beijing, China, carrying 227 passengers and 12 crew members.
Despite extensive and prolonged search effort in the South China Sea, no confirmed debris or evidence of the aircraft was initially found. In July 2015, a flaperon from the aircraft washed up on the island of Réunion in the Indian Ocean, and more debris was found in subsequent years. However, the majority of the aircraft has yet to be found. The investigation into the disappearance of MH370 remains ongoing, but there are several theories about what happened to the aircraft, including pilot suicide, hijacking, technical malfunction, or some combination of these factors. As per reports, the U.S.-based company Ocean Infinity has committed to finding MH370 with a new search in early 2023 or 2024.
Meanwhile several documentaries and shows have been made on the subject pursuing the various theories, now it’s the turn of the Netflix giant which announced the release of a documentary about the missing flight on March 8. Directed by Louise Malkinson, “MH370: The Plane That Disappeared” is a three-part series set to air on March 8, the nine-year anniversary of the incident.
The trailer promises an intriguing documentary that explores three of “the most contentious theories”. “How is it possible for an airline to disappear out of thin air? Someone knows the answer. The question is: Who?” The director said the case of MH370 is “one of the most complex stories” and “the more you dig into it, the more the story spirals. It’s extraordinary.”
