Researcher claims he’s found evidence to pinpoint the exact location of missing plane MH370

Researcher claims he’s found evidence to pinpoint the exact location of missing plane MH370

The man believes he may know exactly where the airline is after it disappeared in 2014

A researcher has claimed he has uncovered evidence to pinpoint the exact location of the missing plane MH370.

It's two letters and three numbers that make no sense, but we all know exactly what MH370 relates to.

In case you have no clue what I'm going on about, MH370 was the Malaysia Airlines flight that seemed to vanish into thin air on 8 March, 2014.

While funerals have been held for the 227 passengers and 12 crew members on board the flight from Kuala Lumpur, the capital of the South-East Asian country, to Beijing, China.

The plane has never been discovered, despite search parties having allegedly found debris from the alleged crash, however, there has been no way to prove this.

That is until now following an in-depth investigation taken out by Vincent Lyne, a former researcher at the Institute for Marine and Antarctic Studies at the University of Tasmania.

Speaking to Express.co.uk, he has claimed he has uncovered new evidence that suggests the remains of the plane is in a 'deep hole about 1,500km west of Perth' - which he has dubbed 'PL Hole'.

But why would the plane fly south if its intended destination was north?

Many conspiracy theories have ensued following it, with some people, including Lyne, believing the plane went off course after takeoff.

He explained that investigations up to this point on its whereabouts were on the back of a 'Pilot-in-Command' flight simulator for a Long-Range Boeing 777-200LR.

However, MH370 was a Long-Range Boeing 777-200ER so the fuel consumption was slightly different and so if it did run out of fuel then search areas have been in the wrong place entirely.

Speaking to the publication, he stated that his theory is 'the only theory that reconciles all evidence, has uncovered new satellite evidence of debris streaming out from the location and uncovered the riddles in the simulated track.”

The researcher then began to speculate on why the investigators would not be using the correct flight simulator.

He added: “The main reason for planning the simulations that way was to calculate fuel loads but make it appear that it was just a simulation for an aircraft that was not part of Malaysia Airlines fleet so as not to draw any suspicion or attention to the simulated track.

“By adding the decoy track (the simulated one to the Southern Ocean from the PL Hole) this would add further confusion as it would not be possible for MH370 to reach that location as it didn’t have enough fuel to get there.”
