It is now almost eight years since Malaysian Airlines flight MH370 vanished on its way to Beijing, on March 8, 2014, with 239 people on board. “Good night, Malaysia 370” are the last words the world ever heard from the plane, about 40 minutes after its take-off from Kuala Lumpur. This is the starting point of what has since been called the greatest mystery in the history of civil aviation. French-Kiwi journalist Florence de Changy was dispatched to Kuala Lumpur to cover the story for Le Monde. Her first instinct was that a B-777, one of the safest planes ever built, let alone in a region that is monitored 24/7 by two global superpowers, the US and China, could not just vanish. She investigated the story for years; reviewed and dissected clues, data, official and confidential reports related to MH370; and met with sources and witnesses in more than 20 countries, until she reached the inconvenient conclusion that the official narrative was a fabrication. Moderated by FCC President Keith Richburg.
Florence de Changy has been based in Asia Pacific for the last 30 years as a correspondent for Le Monde and RFI. The Disappearing Act: The Impossible Case of Flight MH370 (HarperCollins) was published in 2021. The book is a UK best seller and was named among the “Best 10 books of the year” by literary magazine Strong Words.
