  • 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.

An inside look into a modern mystery

The level of detail is exceptional with in depth personal accounts of those involved in search efforts, family and other experts.

I would recommend this podcast to anyone with a curious mind.

Deepest dive; best podcast I’ve ever listened to

This story of MH370 is fascinating. Peter and Jana created an amazing series which is educational but also such an emotional journey. I am left with so many questions, I feel like I’m forever connected to the story. I now wonder…. In my lifetime will we ever find MH370… Thank you Peter for having the courage to share.

Excellent and Confronting

An excellent first hand account, providing information on the most likely theories, and supported by some very reputable individuals. I would describe it as an educational journey, extremely thought provoking and at the same time confronting. I hope it will be the catalyst for another search in the future, thus, providing answers and closure for the families.

Excellent long form journalism.

I really enjoyed the different perspectives of the two story tellers, and particularly the perspective of Peter and his professional and personal link to the story. I thought there was a good balance of technical analysis and personal narrative. Overall a very compelling podcast that you’ll want to binge.

Thoughtful narrative of a tragedy

A brilliant telling of a modern day, real life mystery that permeated so many lives around the world from 2014 to now. Hard to believe it's real. Very generous of everyone who gave their time to contribute. Highly recommend this.

Heartbreaking but excellent documentary podcast

A thorough but incredibly compassionate examination of all the evidence in the case of what happened on flight MH370, and where the final resting place might be of the 239 people who were on board. It was deeply saddening to hear the stories of families who are still waiting for answers, but their grief was always handled sensitively. A very moving story and an excellent piece of serial journalism.

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.
