To this day, the disappearance of the passenger plane remains a real mystery Mh370 from Airlines MalaysiaWho passed away on March 8, 2014 during a flight from Kuala Lumpur to Beijing. No problems were reported for the first 40 minutes of the flight, but just seconds after crossing Vietnamese airspace, MH370 disappeared from radar completely and all subsequent contact attempts failed. From that moment on, the only question is what really happened.
Potential turning point
Today, after many years and countless searches for what is considered one of the most disturbing aviation mysteries of all time, a group of experts claim that the plane can be found within a few days, thanks to new technology. studio. Immediately after the plane disappeared, large-scale searches began from the Indian Ocean on the southern coast of Australia to Central Asia, but no trace of the Boeing 777, its 227 passengers and 12 crew members were found. However, in September this year, Jean-Luc Marchand Aviation expert and pilot Patrick Bliley They have called for new research and provided new evidence. The couple said the plane could be found within 10 days.
“From the new calculations, the area in which research will be focused is now more limited. Given new technologies, the plane could be found within 10 days“.The news reached the major newspapers and mail online It was reported that the two experts were requested by the Australian transport safety authorities, the Malaysian government and the exploration company Infinity ocean To start a new search.
Where will this area be?
It was not possible to visit the proposed new area because the two experts are convinced that the plane was hijacked voluntarily. “We believe, and the study conducted proves this, that the hijacking was carried out by an experienced pilot. With the cabin pressure reduced, a controlled trenching operation was performed, so as not to leave too many tracks or debris. At that moment, the plane was not visible from civilian radars, but satellites were still tracking itThe theory was also confirmed by previous research that showed how military radars tracked him for an hour after he disappeared, as he deviated west from the flight plan.
The plane fell out of radar range about 370 kilometers northwest of Penang Island, but it was possible to obtain information from satellite communications systems used to transmit messages from the cockpit and automated messages from on-board equipment to ground stations. According to experts, some conclusions can be drawn starting from satellite communications. The first is that the plane remained operational until at least seven hours after the last contact with air traffic control over the South China Sea. The data also indicates that it was moving at a very high speed.
The last recorded contact from the ground station was made when the aircraft had been in the air for 7 hours and 38 minutes. The flight between Kuala Lumpur and Beijing takes about 5 hours and 36 minutes, so it is believed that after that time it would have run out of fuel. This data is consistent with fuel data, which indicates that 49,100 kg were loaded into the Boeing 777 (37,200 would have been enough to reach Beijing), an amount that would have kept it in flight for approximately 7 hours and 31 minutes.
Several pieces of debris, confirmed to be parts of the plane, were found on Reunion Island and off the coast of Madagascar between 2015 and 2016. But searches for the missing plane in the southern Indian Ocean have so far been fruitless. The joint underwater research, conducted by Australia, Malaysia and China, at a cost of $200 million, ended in January 2017 without any results. And also a second research by the American Marine Exploration Society Infinity oceanWhich began in January 2018 and lasted six months, was not successful.
In this new research study Richard GodfreyHe is Dr. Hans Coetzee And the professor. Simon Maskellthey used an innovative amateur radio technique called Weak signal propagation reporter (WSPR) for flight detection and tracking. This has been developed over the past three years and the results represent a new possibility in the search for MH370.
Starting from a known radar position, the study reconstructed 67 aircraft positions during the next 6 hours and 27 minutes of flight, which were detected by a total of 125 anomalous WSPR links. (which stands for WSPR Weak signal propagation reporteran automatic system used by radio amateurs to study propagation and test antennas “in the field” by automatically transmitting and receiving intentionally weak signals, ed.).
The results are consistent with previous analyzes conducted Boeing, Inmarsat And with a drift analysis conducted by the University of Western Australia of floating debris from aircraft MH370 recovered from the Indian Ocean. the professor. Simon Maskell It is also now developing a variant of the algorithm initially developed by DSTG Australia (Defence Science and Technology Group, the principal agency of the Australian Government, ed.), to determine the likely location of the crash of MH370, but this time modified using WSPR data. It is therefore hoped that this further research will locate the remains of the plane and provide an answer to this mystery.
