New Netflix Docuseries Has Mystery, Suspense and a Number of Twisted Conspiracy Theories

Netflix is getting ready to explore the sudden disappearance of the infamous Malaysia Airlines flight and the passengers on board in the brand-new docuseries, MH370: The Plane That Disappeared.

This week, the streaming service released the exclusive trailer for the three-part series. In case you don’t know the facts, you don’t need to worry because we have you covered. Flight MH370 mysteriously vanished into thin air on March 8, 2014, while flying from Kuala Lumpur International Airport in Malaysia to Beijing Capital International Airport.

There were 227 passengers and 12 crew members on board the plane. And even after many years, the mysterious tragedy has left the public (and the loved ones of the passengers) confused and baffled regarding the unexplained incident.

The trailer for the new series begins by showing footage of passengers boarding an airplane. Then, a voiceover can be heard saying in the background, “Planes go up, planes go down.” Suddenly, a flight monitor shows the coordinates of MH370, and in a matter of seconds, the flight disappears from the screen. “What planes don’t do,” the voiceover continues, “is just vanish off the face of the Earth.”


Through in-depth interviews and analysis, MH370: The Plane That Disappeared explores twisted conspiracy theories and burning questions that remain unanswered. Because for many, the pressing question remains: What really happened to MH370?

MH370: The Plane That Disappeared is set to premiere on March 8, 2023, on Netflix, marking the nine-year-anniversary of when the plane vanished.

We have so many questions already.
