The South China Sea Boeing-777-200, trip MH370, was a plane with 227 passengers and 12 crew members on board.
The connection with the aircraft performing trip from Kuala Lumpur to Beijing, went dead about two hours after takeoff from the capital of Malaysia, at 20:40 local time in Friday (March 7, 2014). At this point, the liner was above the South China Sea, about 120 nautical miles from Kota Baru. According to board the plane traveled 154 citizens of China, 38 Malaysians, 5 Indians, 7 Indonesians, 7 Australians and one man from Russia and the Netherlands.
In the beginning all hope of finding the plane were related to “yellow object” floating near the disappearance of the liner.
David Joseph - Putin and MH370/MH17
Two Malaysian airliners meet disaster within a few months. At the 2014 Sochi Olympics, Vladimir Putin contemplates his next move after the United States fails to deliver $1,000,000,000 that Putin deems belongs to him.

Peter Lee - MH370
If you want to know what really happened to flight MH 370, this book is a must-buy. In 'MH 370: By Accident or Design', a former military pilot and air traffic control officer analyses the exact sequence of events that took place on the night of 8 March 2014 when Malaysia Airlines' flight MH 370 took off from Kuala Lumpur and then vanished from the face of the Earth. He strips away the clouds of confusion to get right to the heart of the mystery, and suggests a believable and logical explanation for everything that happened that night. On the way, he analyses some of the alternative explanations that have been offered, including the conspiracy theories, and looks at the latest information from the Far East. Some recently published works on this subject were rushed into print before the few indisputable facts were known, and many have been based on little more than the author's personal opinion, almost irrespective of these facts, or have been founded on apparently factual information that has since been discredited. This book starts off with no preconceptions at all. The author looks only at the facts of the matter, and has worked out a possible and believable explanation that covers everything we know about this flight from take-off to its ultimate fate. He also explains exactly how the aircraft systems – things like SSR, ACARS and ADS-B – work, and provides an overview of the satellite communications system that was able to provide basic tracking data for the aircraft long after voice communications ceased. He explains the crucial significance of the position where the aircraft vanished from Malaysia's radar screens, and why that precise location was chosen by the perpetrator of this disappearance. And he shows why the route that the aircraft subsequently followed was not accidental, but entirely deliberate, and chosen for one very specific reason. He concludes his analysis by explaining approximately where the aircraft is now, and why no confirmed wreckage from the aircraft has been found anywhere. As a military controller, Peter Lee has previously been involved in aircraft accident and investigation procedures as apart of his job. He was solely responsible for deducing the precise reason, and specific sequence of events, that led to the loss of a Royal Navy Sea Harrier in the North Irish Sea some years ago, an event that at first sight appeared completely inexplicable, and was the principal expert witness at the subsequent Board of Inquiry. In the case of flight MH 370, he has turned that same critical eye on this disappearance, and his suggested explanation for what happened is both logical and believable. If you read no other book about this mystery, read this one.
Scott Maka - MH370
Short of cash, and afraid of missing her night-flight from Kuala Lumpur to Beijing, globetrotting backpacker Jane splits a taxi fare with two mysterious men – unwittingly enmeshing herself in a deadly international intrigue. At the airport, the lonely young woman forges a bond of friendship that offers her clues into the nature of dark forces threatening hundreds of lives.

Erick T. Hall - The Zombie Plane
Investigative report of the disappearance of flight MH370. The whereabouts of the plane is only one question still unanswered. The investigators are also considering: If the two pilots were involved in the disappearance, were they working together or alone, or with one or more of the passengers or crew? Did they fly the plane under duress or of their own will? Did one or more of the passengers manage to break into the cockpit or use the threat of violence to gain entry and then seize the plane? And what possible motive could there be for diverting the jet? Why don't we have any answers?
Geoff Taylor - Ewan Wilson - “Goodnight Malaysian 370”
The truth behind the loss of Flight 370 will shock the travelling public. The book by New Zealand pilot Ewan Wilson and journalist Geoff Taylor presents compelling evidence about what actually occurred in the final hours of Flight 370, some of it based on new interviews with family members of pilot Zaharie Ahmad Shah. The disappearance of Malaysia Airlines flight 370 captured the world's attention and shocked everyone. The book takes you to Kuala Lumpur International Airport on March 8 and brings together the lives of passengers and crew who ultimately met their fate on board what should have been a routine flight to Beijing on a well respected airline operating a state-of-the-art airliner with a near faultless record. For the first time the book presents a detailed analysis of the flight, the incredible route it took, and who the authors believe was in charge of the aircraft as it plunged into the Indian Ocean. The book investigates each piece of evidence and eliminates all the possible scenarios until the reader is left with one shocking and unbelievable conclusion as to what happened to end the lives of 239 people that night. What happened to MH370 was no accident. It was deliberate and it was calculated and it should never have been allowed to happen.
John P. Choisser - Malaysia Flight MH370: Lost in the Dark
(A 2014-es papíralapú CreateSpace kiadás fülszövege:) The missing flight isn’t in the news quite as much now. The pings have stopped, and the search is entering a second, much slower, phase. The unanswered questions are many. But by most accounts, it is being assumed that the pilots are criminals, suicidal maniacs, hijackers, or terrorists, since no one else on the airplane appears to fit those descriptions. It may be a long time before we know for sure, but in the meantime, I believe the public, and particularly the pilot’s families, need to know that there is a high likelihood that they are victims, and heroic victims at that. The purpose of this book is also not to place blame on anyone in particular, although, as we’ll see, there might have been an opportunity to save the airplane. In the news, there does not seem to be much credibility given to the possibility that what happened was an accident. A rare accident, we hope, but an accident nonetheless. But even given an accident, can blame be placed for making the situation worse? Could there have been negligence in avoiding the escalation of an accident into a disaster? I say yes. I believe we can place blame for this, and it’s not on the pilots. Knowing more about how the airplane and its various systems work will help members of the public more accurately judge the relevancy of the various scenarios being discussed. I can imagine some of my friend’s eyes glazing over while reading some of the technical information presented in this book. And skimming over those sections or skipping them is OK. But these are the bases for the conclusions I reach, so you can either read them or take them on faith. This kind of knowledge will also answer questions like “why didn’t the passengers answer their cell phones?” and “was someone hiding in the cargo bay?”, and “how can the airplane fly by itself?”, and “a hacker got into the flight computer and flew the airplane!” If we keep speculation grounded in the real world, based on how things actually work (and don’t work), some of the more realistic theories can be better evaluated. That’s why there is so much engineering stuff in this book, which you may want to skip over. It’s there as much to explain what is impossible as much as what things are possible. My hypothesis is that the pilots are heroes. Lost in the dark, without flight instruments, with smoke in the cockpit, flying under extreme stress and awesome responsibility, and hoping against hope to see a fighter interceptor outside their window to guide them home, they knew the minutes left on their oxygen system were numbered. They have not survived their ordeal, and, in my opinion, died trying to save the flight. And this small book will not bring solace to the families of the rest of the crew and passengers. But the dedicated effort the pilots and crew probably made amidst the terror and confusion may be worthy of hero status. I feel for all of the victims’ families, but especially for the families of the pilots, who are not only grieving, but whose probably heroic loved ones are (perhaps necessarily, but unfortunately) being labeled otherwise.
John Washington - The Malaysian Flight 370 Report
Our prayers are with the families and friends, the passengers and crew members aboard Malaysia Airlines Flight MH370. The Malaysia Airlines Flight MH370 has been missing for well over a week now. With each passing day, the mystery deepens as analysts, governments and global citizens at large try to decipher what happened to the ill-fated flight. It disappeared into thin air, as if by magic, without leaving a trace; reportedly, the Malaysian Air Force did not pick up any data from the missing plane as it flew across the country’s airspace. Two weeks into the mystery, families and friends of the passengers and crew members aboard Malaysia Airlines Flight MH370 continue to wait patiently as the coordinated search develops new twists every day. At the moment, the only sure thing in all this is that the plane is not in the air; it either crashed and its debris can’t be recovered or landed in an undisclosed location after having flown under the radar for several hours. As the mystery unravels, we will keep you posted on the latest developments as well as analyzing the most talked about theories that have been put forward.
Oliver Howard - All Right, Good Night
When Malaysian flight MH370 with 239 people on board disappeared without trace or explanation, the whole world held its breath. How could such a thing happen? It was clear to most people in aviation that it could not be an accident. An aircraft cannot fly that far, for that long and through such a complex series of events unless it is controlled by someone who knows what they are doing. Not only that, it had to be someone with a plan. This led Oliver Howard, himself a pilot, to speculate that a new kind of terrorism was beginning to emerge. On that basis he wrote this book and included in it many of the details about aviation which are left out of news reports. The book is full of insights that explain the nuts and bolts of aviation, and by giving his readers a first hand experience of life on the flight deck of an airliner, he shows them how such a thing could happen. For all that, this is a novel, not an accident analysis. Even so, it may come close to describing events unfolding at this very minute in the world of international terror. Events designed to bring down not only airliners but the entire financial structure of the Western world. If those plans succeed, it is "All Right, Good Night" to the way we live.
Kincses Károly - Mindig magasabbra / Higher and higher
Az embernek régi vágya, hogy elszakadhasson a földtől és felülről tekinthessen a világra, valóságosan és képletesen is felülemelkedhessék mindennapi élete részletein. Ezen ősi vágy gyakorlati megvalósulásaként Magyarországon is száz éves a polgári motoros repülés, ami Blériot bemutató repülésével kezdődött. A Magyar Fotográfiai Múzeumot az általa őrzött egymillió kép kötelezi, hogy a műtárgyakat különböző formákban, minél szélesebb körben megmutassa, közkinccsé tegye. Múzeumunk gyűjteménye számos, eddig sehol, semmikor nem publikált fotográfiával rendelkezik a motoros repülés eme 100 esztendejéről. Kézenfekvő volt tehát, hogy az évforduló kapcsán a múzeum anyagából válogatott képanyaggal tisztelegjünk a száz éves születésnap előtt. Az egész oldalas képek, tömör képaláírások mellett Kincses Károly rövid – az album műfajához illően olvasmányos – esszéje foglalkozik a repülés fotós ábrázolásának százéves történetével.

Adolf Hitler - Mein Kampf
A Mein Kampf (Harcom) Adolf Hitler nemzetiszocialista vezető egyetlen, még az életében kiadott könyve, melyet landsbergi fogsága idején kezdett el írni, miután 1923-ban az ún. sörpuccsban való részvételéért börtönbe zárták. A könyvben áttekintette addigi pályafutását és megfogalmazta világnézetét, valamint politikai programját. A mű a nácizmus ideológiai alapvetése lett. Hitler magát a könyvben nem politikusnak, hanem programadónak (Programmatiker) ábrázolta. Eszerint „a programadó feladata nem az, hogy az ügy teljesíthetőségének különböző fokait megállapítsa, hanem, hogy az ügyet mint olyan megvilágítsa: másként szólva: kevésbé kell törődnie az úttal, mint a céllal.” Továbbá: „[a programadó] jelentősége csaknem mindig csupán a jövőben mutatkozik meg, mivel ő nemritkán az, akit „világidegen” szóval illetnek. Mert ha a politikus művészete valóban megfelel a lehetséges művészetének, a programadó azokhoz tartozik, akikre áll, hogy az isteneknek csak úgy tetszenek, ha a lehetetlent követelik és akarják.” Hitler ezzel az írással egy átfogó elméletet kívánt a nép elé állítani a marxizmus ellenében. Emellett úgy kívánta bemutatni addigi pályáját, mint ami pártja és az egész nép ideális vezetőjévé teszi őt a zsidóság, mint közös ellenség elleni összefogásban. Megerősítette az NSDAP 25 pontos programjának érvényességét. Megállapította, hogy a nemzeti szocializmus egyik elődjének számító Völkisch mozgalom sikertelen maradt és ideje lejárt; ezzel szemben az NSDAP modern, céltudatos gyűjtőmozgalommá vált, amely sikerrel tömörítheti a weimari köztársaság nacionalista és antidemokratikus erőit.

Gordon Davies - Aircraft
Aircraft are becoming more and more a part of all our lives. We no longer wonder at the graceful jets winging their way high above our heads. But how many young people today realise how quickly this air age of ours has come into being? This book tells the story the aeroplane from man's first halting attempts at flight right up to present day, with some glimpses at the aircraft of the future. It tells of the Wright Brothers and the pioneers who followed them: of famous airmen and airwomen. There are chapters on piston, jet and rocket engines, on how an aeroplane flies, and on the design of modern aircraft. Airliners and flighting planes, helicopters and vertical take-off machines, wingless 'flying pigs' and gliders - they are all here, beautifully and accurately llustrated by the author.
