MH370: The Plane That Disappeared: 5 Things To Know Before You Watch The Netflix Docuseries

On March 8, 2014, Malaysian Airlines Flight 370, and its 239 occupants, took off from Kuala Lumpur International Airport with a final destination of Beijing, a journey that should have been no more than seven hours long.
