Did MH370 crash thousands of miles away in the South China Sea ?

Was MH370 found just days after it disappeared ? Image Credit: PD - Arpingstone
One researcher claims to have found evidence to suggest that the doomed flight did not crash where people thought it did.
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.

Numerous theories have arisen over the years, but by now it seems increasingly likely that the plane and its passengers were flown intentionally to their doom by its pilot for reasons unknown.

Locating the wreckage, however, has proven almost impossible, with extensive search efforts conducted over several years failing to locate the whereabouts of the plane.

Now, though, Cyndi Hendry - who had been part of a crowdsourced effort to search satellite imagery for signs of the plane - has revealed that she had discovered what appeared to be plane debris in the South China Sea just a few days after MH370 had gone missing.

When she tried to get the word out, however, her find was ignored because the plane was thought to have crashed in the Indian Ocean several thousands miles away.

More recently, she even claimed to have found a piece of wreckage bearing a letter 'M' which happens to be an almost perfect match for the Malaysia Airlines logo on the missing plane.
"The satellite images were empty. It was just the blackness of the sea," she said during a segment of a new Netflix documentary about the incident. "Then you press next, more black scans. So much black."

"And then finally, there's something white."

"I pulled the schematics off the internet for a Boeing 777. And I was able to identify a piece as the nose cone. That's when I started saying, 'Holy crap! There's a piece of debris. There's the airplane.'"

"And then I started seeing more pieces. Something that looked like the fuselage. Something that looked like the tail. I got goosebumps."

Whether or not what she had found was the wreckage of flight MH370, however, remains unclear.

I watched the Netflix doc last night. They don't actually show her findings very clearly and now I can see why. Its almost certainly pareidolia. I mean, the one with the graphic of the nose-cone floating upwards... How many plane crashed in water have resulted in a front end staying intact and floating nose-up out of the water?

I'm in general quite sceptical when it comes to amateurs sitting at home, viewing images, claiming that they have found all kinds of stuff. There are people being certain that they are seeing buildings on Venus and all kinds of artifical things on Mars for example.

Hey @Emma_Acid how are you? Good seeing you back at it again   I was much involved in the original MH370 thread here years ago (2014).  I am convinced it was terrorism and the authorities have decided to hide it for just that reason. Very sad ordeal.

It was related to that mysterious cargo loaded before take off. The captain probably rejected attempts made by Russians to detour the plane, resulting in his death. The hijackers were unable to fly the plane. Securities were disconnected initially since access to flight electronics was easy through the hatch existent nearest the cabin.

MH 370 is proof that Murphy's Law is real.  All that tech and we still can't find it.  While I feel nothing but sympathy for the families who lost their loved ones, it is an amazing situation from a technical point of view.  I would also like to say that after Malaysian Airlines lot 2 planes in quick succession, the price of their tickets dropped a lot, and I just knew they were tripling down on safety and security so I saved a lot of money by flying with them at that time.

We just watched this last night on Netflix.  Well, mostly I slept through a lot of it.

Problem is that if the plane did crash on the water - it's broken in millions of tiny pieces with only few of larger parts maybe still recognizable, like engine turbine. Now, to find those 'tiny pieces' in deep water without knowing exact location of crash...  It's close to impossible. Even larger parts. In shallower waters it's difficult task but to find it in ocean or open sea, it's impossible. Technology ain't there jet and hardly will be in decades to come. Aside from building USS Voyager and using it's scanners i don't see how some crash sites will ever be found. And as time pass on, nat... [More]

The best alternative theory is put forward  by a society of aeronautical engineers. Their meeting about this is a video on YouTube. It's called "MH370: Was Air Traffic Control deliberately misled?" by The Royal Aeronautical Society. New here so I don't know what the rules are on posting links.

I've gotta say, it concerns me that there seem to be too many CIA spooks muddying the water on this case.  Classic disinformation campaign imo.  I have a horrible feeling that MH 370 was accidentally downed by AWACS jamming its systems in the South China Sea, then the later tracking data was inserted to mislead the hunt, as were the alleged pieces of the aircraft found on Reunion, the coast of Mozambique and Madagascar etc.  That plane isn't supposed to be found, and the real scenario about what brought it down is likely a tragic military accident.

If we start out with fresh minds, we must ask: How can ATC lose track of a wide-body jet in an air superhighway?? How the heck can this happen!? If a much smaller Russian Mig came into Alaskan airspace, would US Air Force know about it?? Of course they would.  I was skeptical from day one.
