“Planes rise and fall. In “MH370: The Plane That Disappeared,” a three-part Netflix documentary series that banks, swoops, and rolls through all the options, aviation journalist Jeff Wise asserts that planes don’t disappear off the face of the earth. The documentary series concludes that none of what happened was an accident. The tragedy occurred nine years ago this week and is still a mystery.
One of the most significant anomalies in aviation history is still the 2014 disappearance. On March 8, 2014, a Boeing 777 departed Kuala Lumpur for Beijing. It vanished about 90 seconds after leaving Malaysian airspace, with all 239 passengers reportedly missing in action. After a long search, a confusing and challenging series of revelations and inquiries ensued without conclusive results. Malaysian authorities discontinued the pursuit after three years, and efforts to restart it have been unsuccessful.
