About The Event

March 8 2019 marks the five-year anniversary of the baffling 2014 disappearance of Malaysian Airlines Flight 370, with 239 souls on board. The Hunt for MH370 is the extraordinary inside story of the mystery, cover-up and truth behind the tragedy from respected journalist Ean Higgins. Long-form journalism at its best.

Businessman, aviator, adventurer, publisher, and former chairman of the Civil Aviation Safety Authority, Dick Smith will launch the book. He will make a significant statement about MH370.

About the Book

Somewhere deep beneath the wild seas of the southern Indian Ocean, perhaps in the eerie underwater canyons of Broken Ridge along the Seventh Arc satellite band, lies the answer to the world's greatest aviation mystery.

Why, on the night of 8 March 2014, did Malaysia Airlines Flight MH370 suddenly U-turn, zig-zag up the Straits of Malacca, then vanish with 239 souls on board?

Was it an elaborate murder-suicide by a rogue pilot? A terrible accident such as onboard fire, rapid decompression or systems failure? A terrorist hijacking gone wrong? Or something else entirely?

Award-winning journalist for The Australian, Ean Higgins has led the world’s coverage of this incredible saga, one of the 21st century’s most baffling, enduring and controversial mysteries. Ean’s book draws on years of interviews with aviation experts, victims’ families, air crash investigators, professional hunters across land, seas and sky, and takes us inside the saga like never before; written up close, on the inside, and from the major player’s perspectives, to dissect the riddle of MH370’s fate.

Praise for the Book

“The disappearance of MH370 remains the greatest and most pressing mystery in aviation history that demands answers for both the families of the stricken passengers and the travelling public.
