In 2014, Malaysia Airlines Flight MH370 took off from Kuala Lumpur for Beijing Capital International Airport in China. The flight, which had 227 passengers and 12 crew members on board, mysteriously vanished over the South China Sea shortly after takeoff. Despite extensive search and rescue operations involving multiple countries, no signs of wreckage or survivors were found. Even today, nine years after the disappearance, no one can explain how or why the plane disappeared. So, the question arises: What really happened to Malaysia Airlines Flight 370?

Well, Netflix is trying to answer that difficult question with its new documentary titled ‘MH370: The Plane That Disappeared‘. “Someone knows the answer — the question is who”, asserts the hard-hitting trailer of the documentary which also features family members, scientists and investigative journalists trying to unravel the mystery behind the flight’s disappearance.
