MH370 went missing on March 8, 2014, en route from Kuala Lumpur to Beijing and the 239 people on board were never seen again. Andre Milne of Unicorn Aerospace has claimed he has information disclosed to him about the location of of the plane. He even believes that it could be the “new credible evidence” required by the authorities to restart their search for the aircraft.
Malaysian Transport Minister Anthony Loke Siew Fook said in November last year they would be open to resuming the search for MH370 if such evidence was discovered.
Addressing the Malaysian Prime Minister Mahathir Bin Mohamad in an email, he asserted that both he and another volunteer investigator, Daniel Boyer, had information to provide.
Mr Milne’s theory is that MH370 landed at a secret airport in Cambodia after disappearing from radar.
He claimed: “Both Mr Boyer and myself received separate raw intelligence disclosures that identified how MH370 took off shortly after landing to then be strategically crashed at a concealed location away from the secret airport.
“This now brings the cumulative number of hard points of discovery intersection well past the threshold of what constitutes the new credible evidence you require to re-launch the search for MH370.”
In the email he included images he claimed back up his story and even gave the coordinates of where he believes the plane may be found.
He claims these are the “exact coordinates as to the location of the secret airport as made in a vague and unspecified claim by Jeffrey Wise”.
Jeff Wise is an aviation expert and author of the 2015 book ‘The Plane That Wasn’t There”.
He speculated in his book whether the plane may have landed and then taken off again.
He pointed out that the plane went “dark” for one hour and 13 minutes and it is unknown what it did in this time immediately after its disappearance.
Mr Wise said: “The big unknown was what happened between 6.39pm when the satcom was turned on and 7.41pm.
“Had the plane made a single turn or flown around in circles, or perhaps even landed somewhere and taken off again?”
This period of time is key, because it determined which direction the plane started flying in and from where.
If the plane did indeed land and take off again, this could have been in Malaysia or in a nearby country such as Cambodia.
Cambodia has plenty of remote jungle areas, so it is possible for a plane to land unnoticed.
