The Disappearing Act
Author(s): Florence de Changy
'The affair was weird when seen from afar, but seen in close-up, it was Kafkaesque: it was not possible in 2014 for a Boeing 777 to have simply disappeared...'
On 8 March 2014, 239 passengers boarded the Malaysia Airlines Flight 370 only to vanish into thin air. The disappearance of the plane has dominated news cycles and media discussion ever since, and rightly so. In a world defined by advanced technology and interconnectedness, how could an entire aircraft become untraceable? Had the flight been subject to a perfect hijack? Perhaps the pilots lost control? And if the plane did crash, where was the wreckage?
Writing for Le Monde in the days and months after the aircraft's disappearance, journalist Florence de Changy closely documented the chaotic international investigation that followed, uncovering more questions than answers. Riddled with inconsistencies, contradictions and a lack of basic communication between authorities, the mystery surrounding flight MH370 only deepened.
Now, de Changy offers her own explanation. Drawing together countless eyewitness testimonies, press releases, independent investigative reports and expert opinion, The Disappearing Act offers an eloquent and deeply unnerving narrative of what happened to the missing plane.
An incredible feat of investigative journalism and a testament to de Changy's tenaciousness and clear-mindedness, this book is an exhaustive, gripping account into one of the most profound mysteries of the 21st century.
