MH370 ‘crash site found’ in huge missing flight breakthrough

A possible crash site of missing Malaysia Airlines flight MH370 has been identified, top aviation experts have claimed.

Malaysia Airlines flight MH370 disappeared in March 2014 during a flight from Kuala Lumpur to Beijing and is believed to have been deliberately plunged into the Southern Indian Ocean.

The crash has been shrouded in mystery since pieces of the Boeing 777-200ER washed up on coastlines months and years after it vanished with 239 people onboard.

Aviation experts probing the flight have now identified a probable crash site they claim warrants a new search of the ocean floor, Mirror Online reports.

Victor Iannello, who assisted Australian officials during a previous search, said “there are better than even odds” the plane plane is within 100 nautical miles of the potential impact site.

He is one of three experts to have published a new technical report, claiming the plane flew 115 miles west of Banda Aceh, on the Indonesian island of Sumatra, after it was turned around en route to China and flown back across Malaysia.

Mr Iannello said: “I won’t speak for the other three authors, but I believe there are better than even odds that the plane is within 100 nautical miles 115 miles of our last estimated point.

“Any other area has a much lower probability.

“Portions of the recommended search area were already searched by GO Phoenix and Ocean Infinity.

“Other the portions that were previously searched, some of the data is either missing or of low quality due to the challenging terrain of the sea floor.”

To determine the “highest probability” of the flight path Mr Ianello, Bobby Ulich and Richard Godfrey developed a model which looked at civilian and military radar.

They then used the data to analyse debris that washed up miles away from the suspected crash site, examining 2,300 possible flight paths in the process

March 2020 marked the sixth anniversary of the crash and a remembrance ceremony was held to remember the 239 lives lost to the sea.

The search for the plane has been called off but Malaysia’s government said it will consider resuming the search when credible new evidence is found.

A spokesman for the Ministry of Transport said: “The Government of Malaysia reiterates that the aspiration to locate MH370 has not been abandoned.

“Should credible new information emerge which can be used to identify the specific location of the aircraft, consideration will be given in determining future search operations and re-establishment of the investigation team.”
