I know where MH370 crashed – now there’s one last chance to solve the mystery

AN expert on the doomed flight MH370 thinks he knows where the plane crashed – and there’s one last chance to solve the mystery.

British aerospace engineer Richard Godfrey has narrowed down what he believes is the plane’s near-exact location in the Indian Ocean — and new robotic scanners will be ready to search the area by 2023.

Maritime robot company Ocean Infinity announced on the 8th anniversary of the disappearance of MH370 that a new search for the mysterious wreckage will start in early 2023.

With brand new technology that can dive deeper than ever before and a more specific search area, the company will search for the final resting place of the Boeing 777 with the help of Mr. Godfrey.

Since the flight from Kuala Lumpur to Beijing with 239 on board disappeared from radar screens on March 8, 2014, conflicting theories have surfaced about the plane’s disappearance.

It has been one of the world’s most enduring mysteries.

The official story suggests that in 2014 the plane made a dramatic U-turn less than an hour after its scheduled flight – before crashing into the Indian Ocean.

Speaking exclusively to the Sun, British aerospace engineer Richard revealed how his research helped Ocean Infinity narrow its search area to an area known as the “Broken Ridge.”

Using evidence gathered over the past eight years, Richard located the crash site at 33,177°S 95,300°E and narrowed the search area down to just 115 square miles.

Ocean Infinity will use newly built “advanced” autonomous robotic ships to navigate the area – with a beam of 88 nautical miles and 183 nautical miles.

The 5,600-square-foot section of the ocean floor was part of a larger search area covered by Ocean Infinity in 2018 using older robotic technology that found nothing.

But Richard believes the wreck may have been overlooked or buried under sediment pushed up by underwater volcanoes.

Experts believe the deep dive could find the wreck within weeks of the search — and finally put an end to the ongoing mystery.

Richard told the Sun exclusively: “Ocean Infinity has come up with new technology that is always a significant advancement.

“It’s a much smaller area, it allows them to be more efficient, it allows them to go back and forth as much as they want.

“It should only be a matter of a few more weeks, there is a general feeling that if we do another search, it will be the last.

I am hopeful that MH370 will be found, the question is when and who will make the find, I think Ocean Infinity is best placed to find the wreckage

“That they will leave no stone unturned and do a very thorough job, because we will not get another chance.

“I am hopeful that MH370 will be found, the question is when and who will make the find, I think Ocean Infinity is best placed to find the wreckage.”

Richard says Ocean Infinity’s CEO will meet with Malaysia’s Transport Minister in the coming weeks to put forward their proposal.

The company will offer the Malaysian government a “no find, no fee” deal unless the wreckage is discovered.

If found, the price for recovering the plane on behalf of the country will be $70 million, Richard said.

He added: “You can search without permission, but you can’t recover the wreck without permission.

“They have a tripartite agreement with China, who seem very reluctant to do anything about it, despite the fact that the majority of passengers on board are Chinese.

“There were quite a few Australians on board, so Australia has always been very generous in funding and supporting searches.

“Other parties may also be interested in searching, but it would be helpful if Malaysia gave us the rest of the data they have been withholding so far.

“I get the impression that there are people who don’t want MH370 to be found, there could be something about the flight, maybe something in the cargo, that could still be in the wreckage that they don’t want found.

“…I believe that MH370 has been found and this mystery has been solved, not only for the families involved who need closure, but also for the flying public.

JET YACHT

“Ten million of us get on a plane every day and people need to be confident that this won’t happen again.”

Last year, Richard revealed how he had used new tracking technology known as WSPR to solve one of the greatest aviation mysteries in history.

The system uses radio signals that act like “tripwires” and has helped him locate the jet he says is 4,000 feet below the ocean’s surface.

He explains that Weak Signal Propagation Reporter (WSPR) is like having a “bunch of tripwires working in all directions over the horizon to the other side of the world.”

Godfrey says the plane is at the foot of what’s known as the Broken Ridge — an underwater plateau with a volcano and canyons in the southeastern Indian Ocean.

The Brit believes that pilot Captain Zaharie Ahmad Shah committed a “terrorist act” less than an hour after the flight and made a dramatic U-turn in an attempt to hijack the plane.

He suggests Captain Zaharie had a “political motive” to take the entire plane hostage after holding the plane in a holding pattern for 22 minutes.

Zaharie is known to have pre-planned his strange route on a flight simulator found at his home – fueling the theory that the disappearance was premeditated.

Richard said: “My current opinion is that the captain hijacked and diverted his own plane.”

“Maybe somehow that negotiation went awry and he ends up flying to the most remote part of the southern Indian Ocean.”

The Malaysian military authorities only feed such theories by refusing to release military radar data.

However, investigative journalist Florence de Changy claims that the US attempted to intercept the shipment using signal jamming technology, resulting in the disappearance of 239 passengers.

In her book ‘The Disappearing Act: The Impossible Case of MH370’ she describes the theories she developed after seven years of intensive research.

She believes MH370 was carrying a shipment of “electronic equipment” to China, which the US did not approve.

The book claims it was shot down after a failed attempt to change course, and the case has been feverishly hushed up ever since.
