Malaysia Airlines Flight MH370 is one of history's most mysterious and widely discussed aviation incidents.

Below is a brief overview of the event and the investigations that followed before we discuss what could very well be an extraordinary UAP incident captured on camera.

Timeline of Events:

March 8, 2014: Malaysia Airlines Flight MH370 departed from Kuala Lumpur International Airport bound for Beijing Capital International Airport with 239 people on board (227 passengers and 12 crew members).

- Within an hour after takeoff, the aircraft lost contact with air traffic control. Its last known position was over the South China Sea.

- Radar data provided to the public suggested that the plane deviated from its intended flight path and headed westwards across the Malaysian Peninsula, then turned south towards the Indian Ocean, via Penang, Langkawi Airport.

Search Efforts:

- What followed was one of the most expensive and extensive search operations in aviation history. The initial search focused on the South China Sea and the Strait of Malacca.

- The search area was later expanded to the southern Indian Ocean based on satellite “handshake” data, which suggested the plane might have continued flying for hours after losing contact.

- Australia led the efforts in the southern Indian Ocean, covering an area of 120,000 square kilometers. Despite the extensive search, no sign of the plane was found in this region.

- In January 2017, the official search was suspended after almost three years with no conclusive evidence.
