Why Planes Vanish: The Hunt for MH370 on Channel 7 – The Hunt for MH370. Can new technology help locate missing Malaysia Airlines flight 10 years on?

It’s the greatest unsolved mystery in aviation. Now, 10 years after Malaysia Airlines flight MH370 disappeared with 239 passengers and crew on board, the new documentary Why Planes Vanish: The Hunt for MH370 – premiering at 8.30pm this Sunday on Channel 7 and 7plus – looks at whether new radio technology may finally help locate the missing aircraft.

Saturday, 8 March 2014: A Boeing 777 carrying 239 passengers and crew from Kuala Lumpur to Beijing disappeared from air traffic controllers’ radar. It sent no emergency distress signals. The aircraft was never heard from again, but startling evidence soon emerged that MH370 stayed in the air for a further seven hours.

What could have caused the plane to divert so drastically off course? Was it struck by a catastrophic technical failure? Or was it hijacked If so, by whom?

Answers to these questions may be locked inside the plane’s black box flight recorders, now lost somewhere on the seabed, more than three miles underwater in the remote and storm-ridden Southern Indian Ocean.

As new evidence emerges of MH370’s possible location through pioneering radio technology – which has never been used to locate a missing plane before – the documentary hears from scientists at the University of Liverpool who are undertaking a major new study to verify how viable the technology is and what this could mean for locating the aircraft.

Why Planes Vanish: The Hunt for MH370 features interviews with relatives of the missing, aviation experts, former Malaysia Airlines employees, and current and former pilots and unpicks other commercial aviation incidents to try and piece together what may have really happened to MH370.

Why Planes Vanish: The Hunt for MH370 is produced by Windfall Films for the Seven Network.
