A private Australian company that believes it may have found the wreckage of MH370 has slammed official investigators for not taking its claims seriously. See post MH370 – Found In the Bay of Bengal.
The technology the company uses was originally created to search for nuclear, biological and chemical weaponry under the ocean or beneath the earth in bunkers, said David Pope, the company’s director.
“We’re a large group of scientists, and we were being ignored, and we thought we had a moral obligation to get our findings to the authorities,” the company’s director, David Pope, told CNN.
GeoResonance’s technology works by analysing electromagnetic fields captured by airborne multispectral images.
The technology was created to search for nuclear, biological and chemical weaponry under the ocean or beneath the earth in bunkers, Mr Pope said.
GeoResonance began its search four days after the plane went missing and sent officials initial findings on March 31, before following up with a full report on April 15.
“The company is not declaring this is MH370, however it should be investigated,” GeoResonance said in a statement.
The company reportedly has accredited representatives from the US National Transportation Safety Board, Britain’s Air Accidents Investigation Branch and China’s Aircraft Accident Investigation Department, among other agencies.
But the Joint Agency Coordination Centre, which is coordinating the multinational search for the missing Malaysia Airlines plane, has dismissed GeoResonance’s claims.
“The Australian-led search is relying on information from satellite and other data to determine the missing aircraft’s location,” the JACC said in a statement.
“The location specified by the GeoResonance report is not within the search arc derived from this data. The joint international team is satisfied that the final resting place of the missing aircraft is in the southerly portion of the search arc.”
I find that this is a very narrow-minded view, considering that no physical sign or evidence that MH370’s final resting place is actually in the search area as designated by the JACC.
No peice of information, no shred of evidence, however small or unlikely should be ignored in the search for the truth with respect of the outcome of Flight MH370. This decision demonstrates a very narrow view on the part of the JACC and malaysian authoriies!
