If this is indeed confirmed it will be a major technical miracle.
On reflection, Bay of Bengal was always a more likely theater than Southern Indian Ocean, if there was foul play (likely) and especially if there was malfunctioning, it makes no sense that MH370 will continue to fly for so long.
Australian marine exploration company has claimed that it has found the
wreckage of the crashed Malaysian plane in the Bay of Bengal, 5,000 km
away from the current search location in the Indian Ocean.
Adelaide-based GeoResonance said it had begun its own search for the
missing flight MH370 on March 10 and that it has detected possible
wreckage in the Bay of Bengal, 5000km away from the current search
location, the Star newspaper reported.
covered 2,000,000 square kilometres of the possible crash zone, using
images obtained from satellites and aircraft, with company scientists
focusing their efforts north of plane’s last known location, using over
20 technologies to analyze the data, company
spokesperson David Pope said.
He claimed his company used technology originally designed to find nuclear warheads and submarines.
Pope said GeoResonance compared their findings with images taken on
March 5, three days before MH370 went missing, and did not find what
they had detected at the spot.
“The wreckage wasn’t there prior
to the disappearance of MH370. We’re not trying to say it definitely is
MH370. However, it is a lead we feel should be followed up,” said Pope.
Another GeoResonance spokesperson, Pavel Kursa, said several elements
found in commercial airliners were detected at the Bay of Bengal spot
identified by GeoResonance. “We identified chemical elements and
materials that make up a Boeing 777, these are aluminium, titanium,
copper, steel alloys and other materials,” said Kursa in a statement.
