Discovery Channel presents a special one-hour documentary — FLIGHT 370: The Missing Links — which gathers the foremost thinkers in aviation and security to explore key questions surrounding the disappearance of Malaysia Airlines flight MH370.

FLIGHT 370: The Missing Links will air in more than 220 countries and territories worldwide on Discovery Channel. In Southeast Asia, FLIGHT 370: The Missing Links will air first and exclusive on Discovery Channel on Wednesday, April 16 at 9:00pm (2100hrs) SIN/HK.

There will be additional airings on Saturday, April 19 at 2:00pm (1400hrs), 6:00pm (1800hrs) and 10:00pm (2200hrs) and Sunday, April 20 at 3:00pm (1500hrs), 7:00pm (1900hrs) and 11:00pm (2300hrs).

The mystery of flight MH370 has garnered worldwide attention and generated widespread speculation about how the events unfolded. FLIGHT 370: 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. Since flight MH370 went off the grid on March 8, 2014, questions about flight safety have once again taken centre stage. In an attempt to answer some of these questions, FLIGHT 370: The Missing Links 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.
