What Really Happened to Malaysia Airlines Flight 370?

Editor in Chief, The Atlantic
In 2014, a Boeing 777 airliner vanished into the Indian Ocean. More than five years later, what happened to Malaysia Airlines Flight 370—carrying 227 passengers, 10 flight attendants, and two pilots—remains a mystery. In the July issue, William Langewiesche, a professional pilot and one of the world's great aviation writers, reconstructs in exhaustive detail what likely transpired in the flight's final hours. He argues persuasively that, despite what Malaysian officials claim, the plane's disappearance was not an accident—and he presents evidence that they know more about its fate than they have dared to say.
You'll also find in the issue The Atlantic's Workplace Report, an exploration of the changing nature of jobs and work culture in 2019. The report features Caitlin Flanagan on the problem with HR, Jerry Useem on the end of expertise, and Arthur Brooks on the inevitability—and immediacy—of professional decline. "The data are shockingly clear that for most people, in most fields, professional decline starts earlier than almost anyone thinks," Brooks writes. As harrowing as that research is, he offers ways to make the most of the decline—and even enjoy it.
Our newsroom's ambitious reporting extends, of course, beyond the pages of the magazine. On our website, you'll find a new project on the legacy of the Stonewall uprising. Fifty years ago, a police raid on the Stonewall Inn in Manhattan's Greenwich Village led to violent riots that turned into the modern LGBTQ movement. "An American Revolution" examines the state of the movement today, from Spencer Kornhaber's essay on gay-cruising culture in the age of #MeToo, to Hannah Giorgis's review of an exhibition surveying Stonewall's impact on the art world, to Jacob Kushner's scrutinizing reporting on how homophobia in the British Empire took root in its former colonies.
I encourage you to explore the project—and thank you, as always, for being a reader.
