The Secret History of Flight 149 uncovers the truth behind British Airways Flight 149. But what happened to flight 149? This plane left Heathrow Airport on 2 August 1990, its final destination being Sultan Abdul Aziz Shah Airport.
The flight never resumed its journey when it made a stopover at the Kuwait International Airport. It was abducted by Iraqi forces that had invaded Kuwait. All the 384 people aboard were taken hostage in one of the most covered-up crisis ever. The situation escalated to the point where former British Prime Minister Edward Heath had to go to Baghdad to lead negotiations for their release.
This podcast looks into all the investigations conducted around this flight, the British government’s involvement and the possible coverups.
