Man Claims To Have Found Missing Malaysian Airline MH370 Plane


An amateur crash investigator claims to have found the remains of missing Malaysian Airline MH370 plane while looking on Google Earth. Peter McMahon, 64, an Australian mechanical engineer who says he has worked in crash investigations for more than 25 years, insists he has discovered the missing aircraft.

Flight MH370 vanished on March 8, 2014 during its journey from Kuala Lumpur to Beijing with all 239 passengers and crew on board declared dead. Australia, China and Malaysia ended an unsuccessful £115million search in January 2017. The aircraft has yet to be discovered and the cause of its disappearance is still unknown.

By using Google Maps and NASA images, he believes the aircraft is 10 miles south of small islet Round Island, near Mauritius, an area which was not included in the search operation by experts. He claims that an image shows the tail and wings of the plane floating in the ocean. McMahon says he has sent his findings to the Australian Transport and Safety Bureau, which confirmed it could be the missing craft.

However, reports have suggested that US officials told them to stick to their assigned area of the Indian Ocean, the Daily Star reports.
