Sometimes, a topic comes up at Parcast for a podcast that doesn’t fit in a single box. For example, Aileen Wuornos could have been featured in either Serial Killers or Female Criminals. A similar thing happened with Malaysian Airlines flight 370. As the Parcast staff researched it, it became more evident that the disappearance spawned both mysteries and conspiracy theories.
In this two-part, crossover episode, Carter from Conspiracy Theories and Richard from Unexplained Mysteries will each join their co-host Molly to discuss the disappearance of Malaysian Airlines flight 370.
On March 8, 2014, Malaysian Airlines flight 370 was traveling from Kuala Lumpur International Airport in Malaysia to Beijing Capital International Airport in China. It was a direct flight scheduled to last 5 hours and 34 minutes. But the Boeing 777 would never reach its destination.
Less than an hour into the journey, the flight disappeared from radar. Two-hundred, twenty-seven passengers, twelve crew members, and the entire plane vanished without a trace.
Twenty-six countries and hundreds of ships were used in the investigation which cost the Malaysian government over 155 million dollars, but few answers were found.
There are mysteries regarding some passengers on the flight, as well as some theories about the debris that has been found.
