Flight 370: The Missing Links (1 x 60′) – Documentary that gathers the foremost thinkers in aviation and security to explore key questions surrounding the disappearance of Malaysia Airlines flight MH370.
The mystery of flight MH370 has garnered worldwide attention and generated widespread speculation about how the events unfolded. This film looks to industry experts to account for just how it is possible to lose track of an airliner – analysing evidence, deliberating the global frailties of aviation and divulging potential solutions to prevent the disappearance of an aircraft from ever happening again
In an age when we can use apps to locate handheld devices, the special also looks at how a state-of-the-art airliner and its 239 passengers and crew can simply vanish. Since flight MH370 went off the grid on 8th March 2014, questions about flight safety have once again taken centre stage. In an attempt to answer some of these questions, this documentary addresses seven missing links: airport security, air traffic control, on-board communication systems, mechanical failure, tracking – both radar and satellite, international cooperation and the black box.
