Scientists reveal ‘likely’ location of MH370

Missing Boeing 777 could be north of previous search area
Scientists say that the missing flight MH370 is “likely” to be located north of an earlier search zone in the southern Indian Ocean.
The Malaysia Airlines flight with 239 people on board disappeared on March 8, 2014 as it was flying from Kuala Lumpur to Beijing.
The official search for the aircraft was called off in January, but Australian scientists have now carried out analysis of a wing part, known as a flaperon, which washed up on the Indian Ocean island of Reunion in 2015.
This suggests that the missing Boeing 777 could be located in a 25,000 square kilometre area north of the previous search area. Experts leading the search for the plane made similar claims last December.
The scientists carried out the latest analysis using “drift modelling work” on a real Boeing 777 flaperon for the first time.
Dr David Griffin, of Australia’s Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organisation, added: “The arrival of MH370’s flaperon at La Reunion in July 2015 now makes perfect sense.”
