  • Summary

  • On 8 March 2014, a Boeing 777 travelling from Malaysia to Beijing with 239 people onboard disappeared. Despite the most expensive and expansive search in human history, it has never been found.  

    Was it one of the largest ever acts of mass murder, a hijacking that went wrong, or was it something less sinister like technical failure? Aviation experts have no answers. Politicians have no easy solutions. Families have no bodies to bury. 

    This Audible Original podcast is co-presented by journalist and broadcaster Jana Wendt and Peter Waring a former Australian naval officer who worked on the search. It re-examines the evidence and tells the inside story of those whose lives have been consumed by aviation’s most perplexing mystery. 

    Presented by Peter Waring and Jana Wendt

    The Australian government steps up to help with the search. But it is a race against time: the black box onboard MH370 has only got enough battery to last 30 days.

Compelling

Compelling - I had to listen to all 8 episodes in one session.
Why does Audible want 2 more words before I can submit?

The best look at what happened to MH370

A brilliant and compassionate look at the disappearance of MH370 and the subsequent search.

The hosts explore all the events surrounding the disappearance and the search but never lose sight of the victims and their families, putting their stories at the forefront of their investigation into what happened to MH370.

Highly recommended!

Utterly captivating story, brilliantly told

While this is a a comprehensive overview of the mystery surrounding MH370, it also never forgets the human element and the ongoing suffering of bereaved families. It's also a fascinating insight into the processes and politics behind the international search effort for the plane. Would absolutely recommend!

Very interesting

I couldn’t stop listening to this… in particular, the last chapter refers to a theory put forward by a Boeing pilot….. compelling listening and utterly tragic… those poor souls

Sensitive but powerful treatment

A textbook example of how to deal with a sensitive subject, but still making it compelling listening. A Podcast with brain and heart. Which is a rare combination.

Interesting analysis

Bob Cratchet

I only listened to the last episode, which was fascinating and compelling and convinced me that this is the most likely scenario. One unhinged psycho pilot that planned and executed precisely. No complicated conspiracy needed

Seriously?

There is no chronology, there is no science there is no anything. It's just a podcast salad stitched together from completely unrelated pieces. The only saving grace is listening to the family members whose grief no one can even imagine. The rest? Nothing. Just nothing. CNN on steroids. Why did you even bother? Oh and how in the name of everything that's holy did you manage to tie Trump into all this. That right there discredits you from the jump. You just had to virtue signal. Couldn't resist? Mind you if his alleged involvement was backed with evidence and well reasoned, I'd be all for it. But this is like - oh and then right after I saw the plane go down I saw Hitler walking by and he had this evil grin and that's what happened!!!!!!111 This thing is simply worthless for anyone that has any aviation knowledge and has been following this case. Sorry but you contribute exactly nothing.

Great production by people without a clue

Use the amount of fuel on board, the range of the aircraft flying at standard altitude and standard speed and then draw a line. With the starting point and the line, you can derive the speed... Uh, just a bit circular? Either the producers failed to explain the process or the expert waved his hands and amazed a bunch of morons.

So, the pilot probably suffocated the passengers. Did he put a laxative in the co-pilot's coffee and wait til he ran to the head? No theory of how the pilot might have dealt with the other cockpit crew?

The more I think about this effort, the more I realize it's a whole lot of flash with little information. Great production of a mayonnaise sandwich.

Extensive Background, Ultimately Nothing New

This was a different kind of podcast. Normally, I enjoy these, but this was just a never ending series of scenarios, interviews with experts and talks with relatives of the missing. Despite numerous searches, the plane still hasn’t been found. Kind of hard to listen to.

Riveting!

Podcasts are not usually my thing. I could not stop listening!

Very well done. Really glad I listened.

Someone needs to make a miniseries. A movie could not do it justice.

Good information

I'm always curious as to what happened to that plane and those poor souls and crew. This book doesn't disappoint. Narrator is easy listening, too.
