On March 8th 2014, Malaysia Airlines Flight 370 (MH370) was a scheduled international passenger flight from Kuala Lumpur to Beijing. The flight disappeared from air traffic control over the South China Sea, and its last confirmed position was over the Gulf of Thailand. The aircraft, a Boeing 777-200ER, is thought to have crashed into the Indian Ocean.
The plane disappeared from radar screens about 40 minutes after takeoff and lost contact with the tower. With 227 passengers and 12 crew members on board, Chinese mainland 153 and one in Taiwan, the multinational organization has launched a massive search and rescue operation, but its whereabouts are unknown so far even after 7 years.
Malaysian authorities believe that the aircraft’s communications systems were intentionally disabled and that it continued flying for several hours. They further believe that MH370’s last position was in the southern Indian Ocean, west of Perth, Western Australia. The aircraft is presumed to have crashed somewhere in the southern Indian Ocean.
Where exactly is the Malaysia Airlines MH370 plane?
Many scientists have not given up on its search, and now British experts say Malaysia Airlines MH370 found on the seabed, 1933km west of Perth, Australia.
British aviation engineer Richard Godfrey said in a report released on November 30th that he had discovered the Malaysia airlines 370 using revolutionary tracking technology, according to Australia’s 7 news. He said the plane crashed in the Indian Ocean, west of Perth, at 4,000 meters below sea level.
According to Godfrey, MH370 crashed over the Indian Ocean about a minute after it was last connected to a satellite on the day of the crash. Godfrey believes the plane landed at the bottom of the broken ridge, an oceanic plateau filled with canyons and underwater volcanoes. The site is not in the original search area designated by the Australian Transport Safety Bureau in 2015. Still, it is located in the north of the 120,000 square kilometers search area expanded in 2016. In 2018, another search by Ocean Infinity was only 28km from that location.
Mr Godfrey said he was “very confident” that MH370 would be located. “we have a lot of data from satellites, we have oceanography, drift analysis, performance data from Boeing, and now there’s this new technology.” all four indicators point to this particular location in the Indian ocean.”
