THE family of missing Malaysia Airlines flight MH370 pilot, Captain Zaharie Ahmad Shah, has broken its silence, defending his reputation and revealing new information about his activities, in tonight's episode of Four Corners.

The program will also include a forensic reconstruction of the baffling disappearance of the plane, along with an interview with Malaysian minister of defence and acting transport minister Datuk Hishammuddin Hussein.

Flight MH370 vanished en route from Kuala Lumpur to Beijing in the early hours of March 8 with 239 people onboard. Two-thirds of those onboard were Chinese nationals, and six were Australians.

It is believed the flight ended in the Southern Indian Ocean off the West Australian coast, where the search for the plane is ongoing.
