This is a long video so it may take a couple of minutes for the video to load...

Below is a cut down version of the full documentary, the first 5-7 minutes show images of the planes involved in the search and the airports. I included this as it provides some frame of reference...I'd never seen Djerba airport before. There is also some footage of the wreckage which is discussed by Phillip Bartolo...but this is in Maltese.

This cut down version concentrates on the sections featuring Cormac Boomer, as these are in English.
