Scientists believe they have pinpointed MH370 location

Scientists believe they have pinpointed MH370 location

Malaysia's government says it will need to evaluate a new analysis that could narrow the search area for the missing Malaysian airliner to three specific locations in the southern Indian Ocean.

A report released by the Australian Transport Safety Bureau (ATSB) details how French Military satellite images of debris in the Indian Ocean discarded in 2014 have now been analysed with the CSIRO's ground-breaking reverse drift modelling system, according to Perth Now.

The new info is partly based on the testing of the same type of flaperon recovered from the missing flight.

"Clearly we must be cautious".

The Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organisation (CSIRO) then performed a drift analysis and concluded they most likely originated from a zone in the south-eastern quadrant of an area just to the north of the previous search zone, which experts now consider the plane's most likely location.

The breakthough was reported by the Australian Safety Transportation Safety Board (ATSB), which led a fruitless two-year, £97 million, search for the Boeing 777 after the aircraft went missing in March 2014.

But ATSB chief commissioner Greg Hood was guarded about how significant the new information may be.

Experts from Geoscience Australia examined four images from the French authorities to determine whether they contained objects that were potentially man-made in origin.

Geoscience Australia has assessed 12 of the objects to be "probably man made" but can not determine whether they are aircraft debris.

"Geoscience Australia identified a number of objects in the satellite imagery which have been classified as probably man-made. These objects have not been definitely identified as MH370 debris", he said.

The Boeing 777 disappeared en route from Kuala Lumpur to Beijing on March 8, 2014 with 239 people aboard, and continued to fly for more than six hours after contact was lost.

The drift modelling initially released late previous year identified an area of 25,000sq km just outside the original search area. "We think it is possible to identify a most-likely location of the aircraft with..."

Malaysia, as the state of registry for the jet, retains overall authority and responsibility for any future search.
