The mystery deepens as Malaysian authorities refuse to investigate a private survey company’s findings that may be the wreckage of Flight 370. Why won’t they check it out?
Executives on Australian geophysical survey company, GeoResonance, believe they may have found Flight 370 with radiation chemistry and their own technology! However, official investigators aren’t following up on the expert claims. This is just the latest mystery in the March 8 disappearance of Flight 370.
Bay Of Bengal Wreckage — Could It Be Malaysia Airlines 370?
GeoResonance say they have discovered what could be the plane’s wreckage in the Bay of Bengal, 3,000 miles north of the current search location. But it is in an area in Flight 370’s flight path. In other words, the missing plane did fly over that part of the ocean, according to publicly released information — but authorities won’t search there.
“I think that we have been looking in the right place,” Angus Houston, the head of Joint Agency Coordination Centre (JACC), told Sky New Australia. “I’m confident the aircraft will be found.”
The JACC has been managing the search, and don’t believe that the plane could possibly be in the Bay of Bengal, even though the Australian geophysical survey company submitted their findings.
“The Australian-led search is relying on information from satellite and other data to determine the missing aircraft’s location. The location specified by the GeoResonance report is not within the search arc derived from this data,” the JACC said in a statement.
GeoResonance’s team consists of five professors, 12 PhDs and 23 researchers — they used radiation chemistry, imaging and other technology in their search to look for oil, mineral deposits and gas.
GeoResonance Shocked By Authorities’ ‘Lack Of Response’
GeoResonance, announced they had been doing their own search and thought the wreckage should be investigated, even though it was about 3,000 miles north of the current search area in the Indian Ocean.
“The company is not declaring this is MH370, however it should be investigated,” GeoResonance said in a statement, adding that they gave the information to the airlines on March 31 and to the JACC on April 4.
“The company and its directors are surprised by the lack of response from the various authorities. This may be due to a lack of understanding of the company’s technological capabilities, or the JACC is extremely busy, or the belief that the current search in the Southern Indian Ocean is the only plausible location of the wreckage.”
We’re hoping the investigation will provide answers for the families of those lost on the plane.
