Discovery to present MH370 documentary in 220 countries
Discovery Channel and Discovery en Español are presenting a special one-hour documentary, Flight 370: The Missing Links.
Rapid TV News reports the show will air in more than 220 countries and territories worldwide on Discovery Channel, including in Southeast Asia.
It 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.
The mystery of flight MH370 has garnered worldwide attention and generated widespread speculation about how the events unfolded. The Missing Links 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,” Discovery said. “Since flight MH370 went off the grid on 8 March 2014, questions about flight safety have once again taken centre stage.”
