MH370 Flight Mystery: Tech Expert Claims To Have Found Plane’s Wreckage Using Google Maps

Ian Wilson believes he might have solved the MH370 flight mystery

A tech expert claims that he might have solved the MH370 flight mystery. Malaysia Airlines flight MH370 went missing in March 2014 as it flew from Kuala Lumpur to Beijing with 239 people on board.

Even after four years of probe, there’s currently no information about the missing flight. A multimillion-dollar search yielded no clues as to what happened to the plane. But, Ian Wilson,  a UK-based video producer, believes that he might have found the wreckage of the missing MH370 plane on Google Maps. He claims that he spotted the wreckage of the missing plane lying in a high altitude area of the Cambodian jungle, reported TheSun.

Images from Google Maps show a blurry outline of a large plane. The Aviation Safety Network has argued that the blurred images could simply be of an aircraft flying directly below the satellite which photographed it. But, Wilson claims that the outline measures around 70 meters, which is larger than the actual length of the MH370 Boeing.

“The Boeing 777-200 is 63.7m in length,” Wilson said. “Measuring the Google sighting, you’re looking at around 69 meters, but there looks to be a gap between the tail and the back of the plane. It’s just slightly bigger, but there’s a gap that would probably account for that.”

Wilson is now planning to visit the site identified in the Google Maps in an attempt to solve one of the greatest mysteries in aviation history.

Back in July, the Malaysian government released the findings of the final probe that yielded no concrete conclusion. The 495-page report concluded by saying that authorities cannot determine with any certainty what might have happened to the plane. Notably, it did not rule out the possibilities that the plane may have been hijacked by a “third party”.

Meanwhile, France has reopened the investigation of the MH370 flight mystery after Malaysia’s final report failed to provide an explanation for the aircraft’s disappearance.
