CNN aviation correspondent Richard Quest offers a gripping and definitive account of the disappearance of Malaysian Airline Flight MH370 in March 2014. On March 8, 2014, Malaysian Airlines flight MH370 disappeared with barely a trace, carrying 239 people onboard - seemingly vanishing into the dark night. The airplane´s whereabouts and fate would quickly become one of the biggest aviation mysteries of our time.... Richard Quest, CNN´s aviation correspondent, was one of the leading journalists covering the story. In a coincidence, Quest had interviewed one of the two pilots a few weeks before the disappearance. It is here that he begins his gripping account of those tense weeks in March, presenting a fascinating chronicle of an international search effort that, despite years of searching and tens of millions of dollars spent, has failed to find the plane. Quest dissects what happened in the hours following the plane´s disappearance and chronicles the days and weeks of searching, which led to nothing but increasing despair. He takes apart the varying responses from authorities and the discrepancies in reports, the wide range of theories, the startling fact that the plane actually turned around and flew in the opposite direction, and what solutions the aviation industry must now implement to ensure it never happens again. What emerges is a riveting chronicle of a tragedy that continues to baffle everyone from aviation experts to satellite engineers to politicians - and which to this day worries the traveling public that it could happen again. 1.

I didn´t believe in time travel or teleportation until it happened to me. I´m Bruce Gernon, and I flew through the heart of the Bermuda Triangle before I´d even heard the term. Skeptics have dismissed the Triangle as a nonmystery, but they weren´t in my airplane when the fog surrounded my craft and I leapt ahead 100 miles. I documented what happened and memorized every detail of that flight. Now I´m ready to explain that there is no Bermuda Triangle! Instead, there is a continuing mystery that has resulted in thousands of disappearances of crafts and losses of lives over decades and centuries: a phenomenon I call electronic fog. In Beyond the Bermuda Triangle, Rob MacGregor and I present multiple cases of pilots and others who have experienced electronic fog in the air, in the water, and on land. We also examine UFO and USO cases and their possible relationship with space/time warps. Among the fascinating topics we explore are time travel and teleportation; lost crafts, including Flight 19; the Dragon´s Triangle; the Underwater Area 51; the man who is building a warp drive; and a remote viewer who takes on the Triangle. 1.

In 1956 a plane bearing mysterious cargo takes off from a small airport outside Los Angeles and disappears into a raging storm. Nearly 60 years later, while flying over the Sierra Nevada, retired military assassin turned civilian flight instructor and would-be Buddhist Cordell Logan catches a glint of sunlight on metal and spots what appears to be an aircraft wreckage. His life will never be the same. Logan and his beautiful ex-wife, Savannah, plan a reconciliation in posh Lake Tahoe. But upon landing in the Ruptured Duck, his beloved aging Cessna, Logan agrees to put those plans on hold when he´s asked to help guide a search-and-rescue team to the remote, mountainous crash site. The team finds not only a long-missing airplane, with the mummified remains of its pilot still at the controls, but something much more recent and far more sinister: the body of a young man, shot to death only hours earlier. Someone has beaten the rescuers to the site and will clearly stop at nothing to profit from what the plane was carrying - including kidnapping and threatening to kill Savannah if Logan refuses to help them carry out their getaway plans. With the clock ticking and the love of his life in peril, Logan is drawn into a vexing vortex as personal and potentially deadly as any he´s ever known. Voodoo Ridge is a fast-paced, adrenaline-fueled thrill ride filled with the kind of unexpected twists, full-throttle action, and wry humor that won Freed´s Flat Spin and Fangs Out, the first two installments in the Cordell Logan mystery series, rave reviews and a legion of loyal fans. 1.

What would you do if I told you that you could easily build wealth? That´s right! You can become a self-made millionaire, as long as you are fully motivated and are willing to work hard for it. Any individual, including yourself, is able to bring in a large amount of money and live the lifestyle he or she has always dreamed of. Mind you, when I talk about being motivated, I´m not talking about wanting money - that´s not true motivation. Every person out there wants more money, right? The difference between wanting money and being motivated by money involves the willingness to take the necessary actions in order to make it. You see, when an individual tells me that he or she wants more money, I notice he or she isn´t willing to do the work that is needed. People want to live that lavish lifestyle, but they are not willing to wake up early and work late until the sun goes down. They want to put in as few hours as possible so that they can spend time at home or on vacations. Sure, that type of people can make money, but they aren´t going to become multimillionaires. If you are looking for secrets to becoming a multimillionaire without putting in a large amount of work, you have come to the wrong place...the wrong place on planet Earth, because there is no such thing as becoming a millionaire without hard work, unless you win the lottery. Becoming a millionaire is all about doing the jobs that others stay away from. It is about getting on airplanes, getting up early, staying up late, missing your family, and putting a lot of thought into your work. The more people you reach out to and serve, the more money you are going to make. The more people who benefit from the company you have created, the more money you will earn. If you want money, you´re never going to have it unless you´re lucky. You have to be motivated enough to push yourself.... 1. Language: English. Narrator: Bret Kennedy.

In 1956, an airplane crash left the remains of 172 passengers scattered among the majestic cliffs of the Grand Canyon--including an arm attached to a briefcase containing a fortune in gems. Half a century later, one of the missing diamonds has reappeared . . . and the wolves are on the scent. Former Navajo Tribal Police Lieutenant Joe Leaphorn is coming out of retirement to help exonerate a slow, simple kid accused of robbing a trading post. Billy Tuve claims he received the diamond he tried to pawn from a mysterious old man in the canyon, and his story has attracted the dangerous attention of strangers to the Navajo lands--one more interested in a severed limb than in the fortune it was handcuffed to; another willing to murder to keep lost secrets hidden. But nature herself may prove the deadliest adversary, as Leaphorn and Sergeant Jim Chee follow a puzzle--and a killer--down into the dark realm of Skeleton Man.
