Why Planes Vanish: The Hunt for MH370

Unraveling the Mystery of MH370: BBC Documentary Sheds Light

A new BBC documentary, “Why Planes Vanish: The Hunt for MH370,”  on BBC One on 6 March, providing a detailed account of the mysterious disappearance of Malaysian Airlines Flight MH370.

The documentary focuses on the facts surrounding the incident, the extensive debris found, and the revolutionary tracking of MH370 by aerospace engineer Richard Godfrey. The disappearance of Flight MH370 remains the greatest mystery in aviation history, with many questions from the families of the missing passengers and crew still unanswered.

The documentary aims to dispel countless bizarre conspiracy theories propagated by numerous documentaries and over 120 books, none supported by any evidence. It features interviews with relatives of the missing, aviation experts, former Malaysian Airlines employees, as well as current and former pilots. Key interviewees include British aerospace engineer Richard Godfrey and wreck hunter Blaine Gibson.

Mr. Godfrey discusses his WSPR tracking technology, with the documentary introducing excellent graphics to illustrate how it works. Mr. Gibson, a retired US lawyer, talks about his motivation to find the debris and encourage others to hand it in. Mr. Gibson has found more pieces (7) than anyone else, while others have handed in another 34 pieces.

The film, an innovative mix of current affairs investigation and scientific analysis, also explores other cases of missing aircraft to examine what lessons can be learned to make the aviation industry safer. It investigates recent cases of mass-murder suicide by pilots and asks what can be done to improve the mental health of flight crew who are responsible for the lives of 10 million people who fly every day.

“Why Planes Vanish: The Hunt for MH370” will also be shown in Australia on Channel 7 on Sunday, 10 March. This documentary is a must-watch for those seeking factual information on the MH370 mystery.
