An Australian exploration Company has claimed that it found the wreckage of missing Malaysia Airlines MH370 in the Bay of Bengal.
Six weeks after its departure from Kuala Lumpur bound for Beijing and disappearance and after the most extensive and fruitless search on aviation history, an Adelaide based Australian exploration Company has claimed the possible wreckage of the missing airliner was found in the Bay of Bengal, 5000 kms away from current location search.
Australian GeoResonance said on Monday they have located the possible wreckage after covering 2000.000 sq/km of the possible crash zone, north of MH370 last known location. To analyze the obtained data, they used satellite imagery, images obtained from aircraft and other diverse technologies.
“The technology we use was originally designed to find nuclear warheads and submarines. Our team in Ukraine decided we should try and help” Said, the company spokesman, David Pope.
“The wreckage wasn’t there prior to the disappearance of MH370. We are not trying to say it definitely is MH370. However, it is a lead we feel should be followed up” He added.
Pavel Kursa, another GeoResonance member, mentioned that several elements usually carried by airliners were detected at the location.
“We identified chemical elements and materials that make up a Boeing 777, these are aluminium, titanium, cooper, steel alloys and other materials” said Mr. Kursa to Australian channel 7News.
