MH370 disappeared on March 8, 2014, en route from Kuala Lumpur to Beijing and the 239 souls on board were never seen again. Volunteer investigator Andre Milne outrageously claims there were in fact two planes used in the attack, one of which flew over the Maldives and then landed in the Andaman Sea, explaining eyewitnesses for each location. Meanwhile, the ‘real MH370’ allegedly flew north into Cambodia.
Residents of Kuda Huvadhoo in the Maldives reported seeing and hearing a “low-flying jumbo jet” over their houses in the morning of March 8, according to the Maldivian Daily Haveeru.
This led to rumours the plane may have been flying to Diego Garcia, a US Naval island just south of the Maldives.
Meanwhile, Raja Dalelah Raja Latife reported seeing a plane partly submerged in water off the Andaman Islands – an archipelago in the Bay of Bengal – while on a flight to Kuala Lumpur that same day.
Mr Milne claimed this sighting was corroborated by Russian ELINT military satellites, although no evidence for this has been produced.
Mr Milne added: “The hypothesis that MH370 was taken to Diego Garcia is exactly what the hijackers wanted the world to believe.
“They flew so low over The Maldive Atolls to be witnessed by so many credible witnesses in order to create a false flag illusion that the US was responsible, before then cutting back the way they came to then do a soft ditch landing in the Andaman Sea.”
He added that this would mean there are two sites of interest to investigate – the Bay of Bengal where the decoy plane allegedly crashed, and the site in Cambodia identified by another investigator, Daniel Boyer.
Both men believe the real MH370 landed in the jungle and have urged the authorities to launch an expedition to find it.
Mr Milne added: “Following comparative analysis of the human witness testimony and raw electronic data from within the first 84 minutes of MH370 going missing, it has now become self-evident that an entirely separate aircraft other than MH370 was used during the overall forced disappearance of MH370.”
The Cambodia site was identified through “rigorous satellite image analysis”, according to Mr Milne.
He pointed out that the official MH370 report by the Royal Malaysian Air Force has conflicting data.
He said that MH370 was reportedly tracked off the west coast of Malaysia above the Malacca Strait at 6.22pm UTC, but also tracked off the east coast above the South China Sea at 6:33pm UTC, and heading in a different direction.
The private investigator argued: “As it is not possible for one missing aircraft to be identified in two entirely separate locations during the same time frame, the only logical conclusion is that an entirely separate decoy aircraft was used during the forced disappearance of MH370.”
The conflicting data has also troubled other investigators, although most concluded aspects of the data must be incorrect rather than that there must have been two aircrafts involved.
For example, an air safety expert from Brussels told Express.co.uk that the radar data must be “incorrect” because it was “incompatible” with satellite evidence.
