A team of scientists and academics claims in a recent report that they have located the plane from the missing Malaysian Airlines flight MH370.

In a 232-page report published on August 30, 2023, Richard Godfrey, an aerospace engineer who has been looking into the disappearance of MH370 since 2014, along with Dr. Hannes Coetzee and Prof. Simon Maskell, presented their conclusions.

Where the Boeing 777-200ER eventually crashed and whether it will ever be found have always been a mystery.

Weak Signal Propagation Reporter (WSPR), a ground-breaking amateur radio technology, was used by the team in the latest case study to find and locate flight MH370.

The scientists say the “results represent credible new evidence in the search” after three years of developing the aircraft tracking technology.

The signal is disrupted when an aircraft passes through a WSPR link, and a record is made in a global database.

The research team was able to present 67 positions for MH370 over the course of its six hours and 27 minutes of flight based on the 125 disturbances they discovered.

Richard Godfrey claims that the ideal location is at 29.128°S 99.934°E, which is 1,560 kilometers (842 mi) from Perth.

The crash site measures 70 nautical miles by 40 nautical miles (130 km by 74 km), and 46% of the new area has already been searched.

“The results of this case study align with the previous analyses by Boeing, Inmarsat, and the drift analysis by the University of Western Australia of the MH370 floating debris that has been recovered from around the Indian Ocean,” the research team said.

In a subsequent step, Prof. Simon Maskell is also creating a variation of the algorithm originally created by DSTG (Defence Science and Technology Group) Australia to identify the most likely crash site for MH370 but modified this time to include the WSPR data.

On March 8, 2014, at 12:41 a.m. local time, flight MH370 departed from Kuala Lumpur International Airport (KUL) in Malaysia with an expected arrival time of 06:30 a.m. local time at Beijing Capital International Airport (PEK) in China.

MH370 never showed up. After seven hours and forty-six minutes of being diverted to the Indian Ocean, MH370 crashed approximately 11 minutes after running out of fuel.

227 passengers and 12 crew members from 14 different countries were on board, including 38 passengers and 12 crew members from Malaysia and 153 passengers from China.
