Missing MH370 jet ‘seen in Cambodian jungle on Google Maps,’ amateur sleuth says

The missing MH370 passenger jet has apparently been spotted on Google Maps in the darkest part of a Cambodian jungle.

The Malaysian Airlines-operated Boeing 777 plane went missing on March 8, 2014, near Phuket Island in the Strait of Malacca.

The jet lost contact within 39 minutes of taking off from Kuala Lumpur Airport bound for Beijing.

It had 239 passengers on board and is feared to have headed in the wrong direction, towards Australia.

However, UK-based tech expert Ian Wilson has claimed that the plane is actually lying deep inside a Cambodian Jungle.

Although the exact details of where have not been made public despite him releasing a picture of it, he said: “I was on there (Google Earth), a few hours here, a few hours there.

“If you added it up, I spent hours searching for places a plane could have gone down.

“And in the end, as you can see the place where the plane is – it is literally the greenest, darkest part you can see.

“Measuring the Google sighting, you're looking at around 69 metres, but there looks to be a gap between the tail and the back of the plane, it's just slightly bigger, but there's a gap that would probably account for that.”

The news of the sighting comes days after a new 229-page report was released containing clues that could actually help to find the plane.

That information could indicate that the wreck could be 1560km west of Perth.

This astonishing claim has been reached through allegedly "groundbreaking" amateur radio technology called Weak Signal Propagation Reporter, or WSPR.

WSPR was used by researchers Richard Godfrey, Dr Hannes Coetzee, and Professor Simon Maskell, who employed it to track the flight path of the plane for six hours after one of the final radio contacts it made.

The researchers stated: "This technology has been developed over the past three years and the results represent credible new evidence.

"It aligns with analyses by Boeing … and drift analyses by University of Western Australia of debris recovered around the Indian Ocean."

The radio technology allows for data, including timestamp, location, and drift, to be stored in a database every two minutes.

They were able to record it every time it flew through an WSPR link, something they managed to do 25 times.

The result they got corroborates with other data – including from Boeing.
