GeoResonance says its own research has identified several elements consistent with material from a plane – and they weren’t there before the disappearance.
A marine exploration company based in Australia claims it may have located the wreckage of Malaysia Airlines flight MH 370 – 3,000 miles away from where authorities have been looking.
The aircraft, carrying 227 passengers and 12 crew, left Kuala Lumpur International Airport at 12.41am on March 8 and disappeared from radar screens about an hour later, while over the South China Sea. It was due to have arrived in Beijing at 6.30am on the same day.
A multinational search was mounted for the plane and analysis by the UK Air Accidents Investigation Branch concluded that Flight MH370’s last position was in the middle of the Indian Ocean, west of Perth, Australia – an outcome later backed by Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak.
However, According to Australian news Channel 7 News, the Adelaide-based company GeoResonance says its own private research has identified elements on the ocean floor in the Bay of Bengal consistent with material from a plane.
GeoResonance’s search covered 2million sq km of the possible crash zone, using images obtained from satellites and aircraft.
Scientists focused their efforts north of MH370’s last known location, using more than 20 technologies to analyse the data including a nuclear reactor.
According to company spokesperson David Pope, “The technology that we use was originally designed to find nuclear warheads, submarines. Our team in the Ukraine decided we should try and help.”
GeoResonance experts compared their findings with images taken on March 5, three days before MH370 was reported missing – and they did not find what they had detected at that spot.
“The wreckage wasn’t there prior to the disappearance of MH370.
“We’re not trying to say that it definitely is MH370 – however, it is a lead we feel should be followed up,” said Pope.
Police in Malaysia have been ordered to investigate the possibility of sabotage after another Malaysia Airlines jet was forced to make an emergency landing shortly after departing from Kuala Lumpur.
The captain of the Boeing 737-8H6 (9M-MXJ c 40137), which was carrying 159 passengers and seven crew for what should have been a routine 90-minute flight to Bangalore, India, had to turn back after it was reported that one of the tyres on its main landing gear had burst during take-off.
Air traffic control (ATC) contacted the pilots of flight MH192 late last night after debris (FOD) from a tyre was found on the runway. It was also reported that the aircraft also had difficulties lowering the gear on its return to the airport (WMKK).
The airline said that emergency services were responded to the runway, but the aircraft touched-down in Kuala Lumpur without incident around three hours after it left.
Malaysia’s acting Transport Minister, Hishammuddin Hussein, who has been at the forefront of Malaysian efforts to recover the missing flight MH370, travelled to the airport to see the return of the aircraft.
The pilots of MH192 were described as “heroes” for the way they calmly dealt with the emergency situation.
Malaysia Airlines flight MH192 bound for Bangalore turned back towards and parked at Kuala Lumpur International Airport (AP) According to the local Star newspaper,
The incident comes not only after the disappearance of flight MH370 on 8 March, but also after another Malaysia Airlines plane was “diverted” from its course shortly after departing Kuala Lumpur.
Flight MH066, an Airbus A330, was forced to make an unscheduled stop at Hong Kong’s international airport after losing power from its primary generator.
Asked about the possibility of sabotage due to the recent spate of incidents involving Malaysia Airlines, the minister said: “I have already directed the police to investigate immediately. Our standard operating procedure, as with MH370, has not changed but any leads that we have must be verified and corroborated.
“We are thankful that none of the passengers are hurt. I was able to meet the passengers, as most of them were very impressed with the captain and crew,” he said.
Are these incidents sabotage? I would think not! They are more likely to be simple mechanical “failures” that may occur from time-to-time with the operation of aircraft. The bursting of tyres on take-off and landing is a relatively frequent occurrence in aviation and with aircraft landing uneventfully. This incident with MH192 is likely to be just another one of these random tyre blow-outs.
