On March 8, 2014, Malaysia Airlines flight 370 was on its way from Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, to Beijing, China. On board the Boeing 777 were 227 passengers and 12 crew members.
One hour after takeoff, Malaysia’s air traffic control called the plane. Then the plane disappeared from the radar.
What happened to the plane and its whereabouts has remained a big mystery ever since.
Now, however, British aeronautical engineer Richard Godfrey claims to have discovered the location of the wreck using new methods.
Godfrey worked for a long time trying to solve the mystery of the flight. Now he’s used what he calls “revolutionary” and new tracking technology — and he’s made discoveries, he says.
to me BBC Godfrey explains how he combined various data to calculate the exact location of the Boeing aircraft.
It is said to be located at a depth of 4,000 meters in the Indian Ocean, about 2,000 km west of Perth on the west coast of Australia.
Specifically, 33°S and 95°E from the Indian Ocean, according to the BBC.
– very confident
The area in which the engineer identified the wreck is an area characterized by underwater rocks and volcanoes, and thus can be difficult to investigate.
His report concludes that a radius of 75 km should be sought from the coordinates indicated by Godfrey.
In 2018, a search for the plane was conducted just 28 kilometers from the area now identified by Godfrey.
to Australia Sunrise Godfrey says he’s “very confident” he’s found the correct location for the plane.
“We have a lot of data from satellites, we have oceanography, process analysis, performance data from Boeing, and now this new technology,” the engineer told Sunrise.
Allegedly, the plane was hijacked
Since the plane’s disappearance in 2014, dozens of aircraft wreckage have been found on islands in the Indian Ocean and along the coast in South Africa.
The British engineer also has a theory about the cause of the crash.
He confirmed that the pilot hijacked the plane as an act of terrorism.
Godfrey believes the pilot redirected the plane to make it disappear into one of the “most remote places in the world”.
There has been a lot of speculation, theories, and conspiracy theories about what happened to the plane. Everything from engine failure and the plane falling into the sea, to aliens shooting down or hijacking the plane.
In the run-up to the disappearance, the pilot criticized the Malaysian authorities and called the prime minister an idiot, according to the report. NRK. Therefore, he soon ended up in the spotlight by investigators with the theory that he crashed the plane on purpose.
However, investigators found no evidence that he wanted to steer the plane.
Godfrey, on the other hand, is adamant that the pilot hijacked the plane as an act of terrorism, dropping it into the sea. But Australian experts rejected this theory, according to BT.
