MH370 search

A British Aerospace Engineer claims he’s been able to pinpoint the final resting place of MH370

A British aerospace engineer claims to have pinpointed the precise location where Malaysia Airlines Flight 370 rests, after the Boeing 777 crashed and dropped to the bottom of the southern Indian Ocean in 2014.

The breakthrough injects new hope that one of aviation’s great mysteries might finally be solved.

According to revolutionary aviation tracking technology used by Richard Godfrey, MH370 hit the ocean 1933km west of Perth, Australia, at 33.177°S 95.300°E, with the plane falling a depth of 4000 metres to the floor below.

“The prime crash location is at the foot of the Broken Ridge in an area with difficult underwater terrain,”

Mr Godfrey’s report, released today, claimed.

“There are mountainous outcrops and cliffs, an underwater volcano and a canyon.”

The missing jet could be located in 2022

Mr Godfrey’s research, which he claims will lead to the discovery of MH370 by 2022, is based on Global Detection and Tracking of Any Aircraft Anywhere known as GDTAAA software and Weak Signal Propagation Reporter data.

WSPR can be best visualised as laser beams which criss-cross the world, with any disturbances logged in a database.

According to Mr Godfrey’s research, GDTAAA combined with WSPR data provided hundreds of trackable radio signals every two minutes during the flight of MH370 – allowing him to pinpoint a critical search zone to find the missing jet.

Within the report, Godfrey pinpoints the crash location with a red dot.

“This data supports an overwhelming case for a renewed search in the prime crash location,” the report stated.

“There are a number of parties willing to use AUVs (automated underwater vehicles) to search the location I identify,” he stated.

Mr Godfrey wrote in comments on his website, following his release of the report.

The engineer suggests MH370 would be found in the second half of 2022 if authorities carry outa meticulous search of a 40 nautical mile zone.

The wild weather event caused significant damage and crippled communications – the true extent of the damage is still unknown.

A New Zealand vessel which is expected to arrive on Friday is the first major supply ship to pending to dock.

The captain of the HMNZS Aotearoa had earlier told ticker NEWS partner Reuters that the ship was carrying 250,000 litres of water, along with other supplies. The UN says clean water supplies are the top priority for the Pacific nation.

Australia has also deployed its largest ship, the HMAS Adelaide.

The vessel set sail bound for Tonga on Friday. The ship can carry helicopters which can be deployed from the ship to bring supplies to Tonga’s smaller outer islands.

That vessel is due to arrive mid-next week.

The UK also announced on Friday it was also redeploying its HMS Spey to the Tongan response and had sent aid supplies ahead with the Australian ship.
