  • Novel Study shows where Missing Malaysia Airlines Flight Debris may be Found

A novel study has shown where the missing Malaysia Airlines Flight debris may possibly be found on the world map.

A group of experts in Italy have used various methods of analysis to determine where the Malaysia Airlines Flight MH370 may have crashed in the ocean. The remaining debris at this supposed crash site is something which has to be recovered.

This study was published in Natural Hazards and Earth System Sciences, an open access journal of the European Geosciences Union (EGU).

It is the first analysis of the situation that points to the whereabouts of the debris. The results of this study agree with all the five current findings regarding the debris.

This ought to make this study the most accurate version that we have so far regarding the mystery behind the missing airline with so many on board.

It was in March 2014 that Malaysia Airlines Flight MH370 simply disappeared as a blip from the radar scanner. There were 239 passengers and crew on board.

There were several attempts to search for this lost airlines. Yet every attempt ended in utter failure. An investigation of the southern Indian Ocean, where it was thought to have taken a dive into the waters below, turned up nothing.  

There were odd bits of flotsam and jetsam from the airlines in the region, yet the main parts from the wreckage were not to be found at all. The north coast of Australia is the region that holds the most hope for the researchers.

Wreckage may be spotted in this area. At least it is the most likely place where this airline took a nosedive. However, the computer simulations show that the debris could also be 500 km to the north. Were nothing to be found here either, then the search operation will need to be further extended. 

The department of oceanography was consulted in order to know more about the waves and wind currents which could have caused the wreckage to drift far away from the site of the crash.

In order to further hone their research capabilities, the five sites where some odd fragments of debris were found have been pinpointed as the focal points of the study. Two of these are in Mozambique. One is in each of the following regions: Reunion, South Africa and Mauritius.

It was a complex hotch potch of data that got fed into the computers to tally the most likely spots on the map where the remaining debris might be found. This methodology may just work in the long run although there are no guarantees.
