  When Malaysia Airlines flight MH370 disappeared on March 8, 2014, the world watched as authorities searched in vain for the Boeing 777, which was lost during a routine international flight between Kuala Lumpur and Beijing with 239 people on board.

As the second anniversary approaches, the search for MH370 continues and remains one of the biggest aviation mysteries of all time. CNN’s Aviation Correspondent Richard Quest was one of the leading journalists covering the story, and in his new book, The Vanishing of Flight MH370, he offers a look at one of the decade’s biggest news stories.

In a coincidence, Quest had interviewed one of the two pilots a few weeks before the disappearance. It is here that he begins his chronicle of an international search effort, which despite years of searching and tens of millions of dollars spent, has failed to find the plane.
