Exploration company believes it may have found MH370

FIRST ON 7: An Adelaide-based exploration company believes it may have located the wreckage of Malaysia Airlines flight MH370, 5000km away from where authorities have been looking.

The company, GeoResonance, says its research has identified elements on the ocean floor consistent with material from a plane.

Six weeks have now passed since the plane disappeared and extensive searches in the Indian Ocean have failed to locate any wreckage.

Today, Prime Minister Tony Abbott admitted the chance of finding debris on the surface is slim to none.

Air search for MH370 called off: Abbott

He said efforts will not focus on the ocean floor, but GeoResonance believes authorities have been looking in the wrong place.

It started its own search for the missing aircraft on March 10.

“The technology that we use was originally designed to find nuclear warheads, submarines… our team in the Ukraine decided we should try and help,” David Pope from GeoResonance said.

The company surveyed over 2,000,000 square kilometres of the possible crash zone, using images obtained from satellites and aircraft.

Scientists focused their efforts north of the flight’s last known location, using over 20 technologies to analyse the data including a nuclear reactor.

They could not believe what they found in the Bay of Bengal.

“Our team was very excited when we found what we believe to be the wreckage of a commercial airliner,” Mr Pope said.

Pavel Kursa from GeoResonance told 7News: “We identified chemical elements and materials that make up a Boeing 777… these are aluminium, titanium, copper, steel alloys and other materials.”

An initial report was sent to authorities while the black box still had two weeks of battery power.

The team then verified its findings by analysing images from the same area on March 5, three days before the plane disappeared.

“The wreckage wasn’t there prior to the disappearance of MH370,” Mr Pope said.

The full report was delivered on April 15.

“We’re not trying to say that it definitely is MH370, however it is a lead we feel should be followed up,” Mr Pope told 7News.

7News tried to contact the office of search co-coordinator Angus Houston today but there was no response.

They can detect different elements under the sea from an airplane? Impressive if true. Seems this would be pretty hand for ASW.

If they can do a light spectral analysis from an airplane, than it’s certainly possible that they could do this.

They have a team from Ukraine. Makes me wonder if they got the classified satellite data from Russia to make the west look bad ? Also a bunch of press releases on 3/14/2014 - 3/15/2014 indicated that classified radar from US and Malaysia indicated the plane went down in the Bay of Bengal. One 3/15/2014 Malaysia told India to stop searching in the Bay of Bengal.

It is interesting that the company went to press today. I guess they figure they get the message out get the authorities to investigate it. I wonder if Obama was talking to the Malaysian Pm about this find during his weekend visit to Malaysia ?

This could be publicity for the company, as I suspect that doppler BS was for that UK company.

If those black pictures are the plane I don’t think so. No matter how slow you try to land a plane on water it’s going to break up. That plane is too perfect.

If this find is legitimate then it shouldn’t be too hard for the Malaysians to cough up a little money to send a UAV contractor down there to verify it.

Very considerate of the perps to align the aircraft along a perfect north/south axis too.

Well, the Captain of the the one put down in the NY Hudson was mostly intact and all survived...

Of course that was a river, not an ocean... But...

Also the article mentions that they found “aluminium, titanium, copper, steel alloys and other materials”. Boeing 777 uses 59 metric tons of titanium. First US jets to use it were the F100 Super Sabre and the Lockheed A-12.

Lithium batteries and 4 tons of mangosteens —

Not worth hijacking a plane over and how would you access any of the cargo if the plane is put down in the water. You wouldn’t have much time before it sinks.

Maybe there was something in the cargo they wanted to secretly recover, so they sent everyone on a wild goose chase.

That’s the pic.

I’m just ROFLMAO over the whole thing. If the plane IS there, then they faked the ping data.

If it is there, then what did multiple ships detect on those frequencies?

If it is there, and it’s broken as he asserts, where’s the wreckage that would have washed up weeks ago? Or bodies?

If it’s NOT there, then it could be in the Bay of Bengal. Hey...they found ELEMENTS.

If it’s not there, then it could be on Diego Garcia.

If it’s not there, then it could have landed in the Andamans.

If it’s not there...I hear Lost is gearing up with a new publicity campaign.../s

The scandal with the pingers is a big joke. The frequency (33.9Khz), it is close to 32.768 khz common frequency used in digital circuits for real timers that go off every second. Used by digital real time circuits for digital watches, computers, marine diving equipment.

I think someone posted they never identified that the pingers came from the plane. The protocol allows for the pinger detector to send a signal to get the aircraft id and air craft serial id number.

I got a big laugh when I saw them using a scope. You would think in this day and age it would be a device with an a/d convertor with DSP to recognize the ping and use the protocol.
