The real and raw human face of an international tragedy Three weeks ago, Malaysian Airlines Flight 370 disappeared from civilian radar.
Something or someone caused two different location devices to be switched off. Minutes later, it disappeared from military radar. We now know that Flight MH370 flew for another 7 hours in the opposite direction from its scheduled destination and crashed into the Southern Indian Ocean, 2500 kilometres from Perth. Was it terrorism or a suicidal pilot? Did its crew and passengers perish on board, turning it into a ‘ghost flight’ that flew unmanned into a vast ocean? Nothing about the flight makes sense — and nothing will bring comfort to those whose loved ones were on board. 60 Minutes speaks exclusively to the Australian families of the victims of Flight MH370, as they tell of the agony of not knowing what happened to their loved ones for 18 days. It’s the very real and raw human face of this international tragedy.
