A gripping new Netflix documentary is set to delve in to the mystery of the plane that vanished into thin air with 227 people on board.

Pretty much everyone across the globe has heard about flight MH370, and it's definitely a story that would make you think twice about stepping on your next plane. But was there more to its disappearance?

The flight departed Kuala Lumpur International Airport in Malaysia on 8 March, 2014, but never arrived at its intended destination: Beijing Capital International Airport.

The crew had last communicated with air traffic control shortly after takeoff, and it hasn't been heard from since.

Nine years later, its disappearance remains a complete mystery; as does the fate of the more than 200 people on board.

But Netflix's new three-part series, MH370: The Plane That Disappeared, puts forward some theories about what might have happened.

Described as a 'speculative docuseries', the show promises to bring together family members, scientists and investigative journalists to share their thoughts about the plane's disappearance amid the ongoing search for an explanation.

The first episode, set to arrive on 8 March, will look at the immediate aftermath of the plane's disappearance, focusing on the first few hours and days after it vanished as well as the conspiracy theories and false accusations surrounding the events.

Parts of the plane were thought to have been found in the Indian Ocean in 2016, though the documentary sees people claiming these may actually have been 'planted'.

The second episode of the series will hone in on another Malaysian Airlines flight which was shot down by a Russian missile the same year, with experts discussing the chances of two aircraft from the same airline crashing in such a short time, while the third and final episode focuses on the search nearly a decade on.

Jeff Wise, science journalist and author of The Plane That Wasn’t There: Why We Haven’t Found MH370, is among the experts featured in the documentary, along with reporter and foreign correspondent Florence de Changy.

A number of the passengers' family members, from China, Malaysia, Australia and France, also have chance to share their thoughts on the matter.

Louise Malkinson, who directed the series, has made clear that the families of the lost loved ones 'want to keep talking about this'.

"The families want a platform to be able to say, ‘Come on, it’s been nine years.’ They were all united on that," she said.
