IndPac 2015 - The Mystery Flight: Reviewing the Search and Recovery Operation for Flight MH370


The world’s greatest peacetime air mystery began on 8 March 2014 when Malaysia Airlines Flight MH370 disappeared during a routine flight between Kuala Lumpur and Beijing. Missing Flight MH370 triggered what became the world’s largest search and rescue (later becoming a recovery) mission over the Indo-Pacific area. A variety of challenges faced the cooperative, multinational effort that involved Australia, China, Japan, Malaysia, New Zealand, the Republic of Korea, the United Kingdom and the United States, with one of them being unprecedented international media coverage.

In addition to a multi-agency response, Australia’s Joint Task Force 658 was established on 26 March 2014 to assist with coordination of the search efforts as part of Operation Southern Indian Ocean. The operation involved 2,999 flying hours and a combined total of 480 search days by the 18 vessels involved in surface and subsea operations.

Join a panel discussion on the host of challenges faced during this international, large-scale search for missing Flight MH370.

Chatham House rules will apply.
