The disappearance of Malaysia Airlines Flight 370 on an overnight flight from Kuala Lumpur to Beijing in March 2014 captured the world’s imagination. The unsolved mystery has generated theories from the possible to the far-fetched but one thing is undeniable – while extremely rare, the disappearance of an airliner was not an unprecedented event. Over the past century a dozen commercial aircraft have flown into oblivion. The lessons of history can help us try to understand the mystery of MH370 and even provide clues as to what happened aboard the ill-fated flight.
Christine Negroni covered the story of MH370 from Kuala Lumpur for the American television network, ABC News. She is the author of the soon-to-be-released book, The Crash Detectives, Investigating the World’s Most Mysterious Air Disasters. Her writing also appears in The New York Times, Forbes and Air & Space magazine and other publications. She is a journalist, air safety advocate and former air accident investigator.
