Publisher's Summary

CNN aviation correspondent Richard Quest offers a gripping and definitive account of the disappearance of Malaysian Airline Flight MH370 in March 2014.

On March 8, 2014, Malaysian Airlines flight MH370 disappeared with barely a trace, carrying 239 people onboard - seemingly vanishing into the dark night. The airplane's whereabouts and fate would quickly become one of the biggest aviation mysteries of our time....

Richard Quest, CNN's aviation correspondent, was one of the leading journalists covering the story. In a coincidence, Quest had interviewed one of the two pilots a few weeks before the disappearance. It is here that he begins his gripping account of those tense weeks in March, presenting a fascinating chronicle of an international search effort that, despite years of searching and tens of millions of dollars spent, has failed to find the plane.

Quest dissects what happened in the hours following the plane's disappearance and chronicles the days and weeks of searching, which led to nothing but increasing despair. He takes apart the varying responses from authorities and the discrepancies in reports, the wide range of theories, the startling fact that the plane actually turned around and flew in the opposite direction, and what solutions the aviation industry must now implement to ensure it never happens again.

What emerges is a riveting chronicle of a tragedy that continues to baffle everyone from aviation experts to satellite engineers to politicians - and which to this day worries the traveling public that it could happen again.

    "Truly Excellent Book"
    If you could sum up The Vanishing of Flight MH370 in three words, what would they be?

    accurate interesting compelling


    What does Richard Quest bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Attention to detail and accurate reporting


    Any additional comments?

    I picked this book based on the recommendation of Patrick Smith of ASK THE PILOT fame.
    I chose this book with a bit of trepidation having only a little exposure to Richard Quest, that being a Daily Show segment on a Royal Wedding or some British pageantry.
    As it turned out this is one of the best aviation books I've ever read/heard. I was also worried about his exuberant style of speech detracting from the narration, but it was in fact great.
    Mr Quest went from being pretty low on my egard scale to near the top.

    I highly recommend this book to anyone interested in quality journalism, told compellingly.
