Startling new evidence has virtually pin pointed the location of MH370 – 1258 days since it disappeared.
The Australian Transport Safety Bureau has just released an explosive new report that combines a refinement of drift modelling from debris washed up in the Western Indian Ocean and previously discarded satellite images of apparent debris in the ocean.
That drift modelling initially released late last year identified a new area of 25,000sq km just outside the original search area.
The images taken by a French military satellite which showed apparent debris were discarded by governments and authorities in late March 2014 – before the ATSB became involved in the search.
However, with the CSIRO’s ground-breaking reverse drift modelling done by David Griffin and Peter Oke now refined down to an area of 5,000sq km, pinpointing the most likely location of MH370, all satellite imagery of the relevant new area has come up for review.
GeoScience Australia has been examining four French satellite images taken on March 23 ,2014 – two weeks after the loss of MH370 – in the area where any debris would have drifted according to the CSIRO report and have found 12 objects that are deemed “probably” man-made and 28 that are “possibly” man-made.
This finds confirms the CSIRO’s new probable location of MH370.
The dimensions of these objects are comparable with some of the debris items that have washed up on African beaches and their location near the 7th arc makes them impossible to ignore, says the reports.
