Mystery behind lost MH370 plane could be solved with new technology 10 years after disaster

Next week will mark 10 years since the flight went missing

It's been almost 10 years since one of the most famous aviation mysteries in history took place.

Flight MH370 was planned to make the journey from Malaysian capital Kuala Lumpur to Chinese capital Beijing on 8 March 2014.

Instead, it veered off course and disappeared without a trace.

Aboard the plane were 227 passengers and 12 crew members, who have all been presumed dead following the incident.

The aircraft sent no distress calls and the plane was never heard from again, though it was later found that the Boeing 777 turned off its flight path and flew on an unknown path for an additional seven hours.

Despite experts initially thinking that they may have come closer to finding the location of the plane thanks to new evidence, there has ultimately been little progress in uncovering the wreckage or overall remains.

Nobody knows for sure what happened on that fateful day in 2014, remaining as the single greatest unsolved mystery in aviation history.

For all we know, the answers may be on the plane's black box flight recorders, which have been searched for since it disappeared, though they are probably somewhere along the seabed of the Indian Ocean.

It will also look at the lessons learned, and how aviation travel can be made safer to avoid situations like this.

Scientists from the University of Liverpool, who are undertaking a huge study to see how legitimate the technology can be in this situation, will also be contributing to the doc, explaining how influential it can be in uncovering the mystery.

In addition to the MH370, other missing aircraft cases are covered to see what can be learned from the occurrences, and even looks at cases of mass-murder suicide by pilots.

The piece will also explore what can be done to improve the mental health of flight crew, who are responsible for the millions of plan passengers who travel each day.
