Ocean microphones may have picked up MH370

A directional microphone system in the Indian Ocean may have recorded the doomed airliner going down.
Exactly what happened to Malaysia Airlines Flight 370 after it took off from Kuala Lumpur International Airport on March 8, 2014 still remains one of the most enduring mysteries in aviation history.

Now though, almost five years on, researchers believe that they may have found a new clue in the form of audio recordings from around the time MH370 is thought to have crashed in to the sea.

The four distinct sound events, which were caused by low-frequency acoustic-gravity waves, were picked up by hydrophones designed to detect evidence of illegal underwater nuclear testing.
While one of the events occurred relatively close to where MH370 is thought to have gone down, two of the others seemed to be thousands of miles away from where the search teams had been looking.

Researchers at the University of Cardiff in Wales and the Memorial University of Newfoundland in Canada analyzed the recordings to compare them to the sound of a large object striking the ocean.

While they determined that the sounds could have been caused by an airliner crashing in to the sea, it is impossible to rule out other possibilities such as a meteorite strike or underwater volcano.

The findings have since been forwarded along to authorities in Malaysia and Australia however there are no immediate plans to resume the search based on this potential new lead.

I think that the "crash" was caused by UFOs.† Definitely this seems like the most likely possibility to me, and I think that mass alien abduction is the most likely possibility here.† Same with Amelia Earhart.† I'm pretty sure she was abducted by aliens and not returned.† Seems like the most likely explanation given the level of UFO activity in the world and how common alien abduction is.

Given the utter lack of evidence, no it's not a likely explanation.

Harold Holt, Jimmy Hoffa, and Madeleine McCann were also likely abducted by aliens.† JFK was likely assassinated by aliens.

There is a lot of evidence. †Millions of sightings and thousands upon thousands of people taken against their will and experimented on. †Crop circles, implants found to contain isotopes not found on earth, and strange anomalies like high radiation in areas where UFOs have landed. †

Stop talking crap. There is no evidence of UFOs being involved with MH370.

None of that is true. Fun stories, but all fiction.
