(Poster's note: I searched by title and keyword and didn't find this already on FR)

A pilot from New York believes he has found the wreckage of the missing Malaysia Airline Flight 370 off the coast of Thailand after searching thousands of satellite images online.

Michael Hoebel, 60, spent hours trawling through the images made available to the public on a crowd-sourcing website, TomNod.com, before coming across what he believes is the doomed plane.

The recreational pilot from Tonawanda said he was shocked to discover that the aircraft, which vanished two months ago, appeared to be in one piece beneath the water off the northeast coast of Malaysia, just west of Songkhla in Thailand. The image was taken days after the crash...

Well there you have it. Problem solved. That is clearly the missing plane. It cannot be anything else.

There’s that, and then that company who said they found metals consistent with the airliner, but I’ve not yet heard that any kind of investigation was done where they were saying it was. Why is that?

This has been shown before - about 2 weeks ago, IIRC - and turned out to be nothing.

One of the first steps is to find out how deep the water is at that location.

Most likely, it’s too deep to see a plane sitting on the sea floor.

Another step is to look at the location prior to the disappearance, to see if the object is already there.

Also look later, and see if it’s still there.

Just a couple simple steps to start trying to verify or eliminate, but the media never seems to bother.

I care——anyone of us could have been on that plane.

The suffering of the families must be awful.

There were about twenty VERY SPECIAL people on that plane. There is no telling where it was ditched after the people were off loaded for use.

Makes more sense than turning around and flying thousands of miles in some random direction until it ran out of fuel.

That raises a question for me - If the plane is ever found, will CNN go off the air? (I can only hope it will.)

Except that several eye & ear witnesses SAW & HEARD MH370 overfly their island.

Do not go to this link as it is FULL of inaccuracies and draws bogus conclusions. There are reports the next day after the plane disappeared.
