MH370 news: Man to search ‘new Bermuda Triangle’ where plan…


London-based Ian Wilson believes he spotted the plane on his Google App stranded 60 miles west of Cambodia’s capital Phnom Penh. 

He will embark on the journey through the jungle with Cambodian soldiers on a mission through mountains to the north west of Phnom Penh.

Mr Wilson will also be joined by his brother Jackie on the excursion leaving from London Heathrow on Tuesday.

Mr Wilson told Daily Star Online: “I’m excited. A real worry was not having anyone skilled taking us in, and going in on our own.

“But I’ll leave it to the experts. They seem really helpful at the moment. I think we’ll get as close as we can before we start climbing.”

Experts have discredited the sighting, certain the image show a large aircraft simply caught in mid flight passing over the jungle. 

If the image does turn out to be a plane wreckage the area could be an aircraft graveyard in the formation of the a new Bermuda Triangle, a loosely-defined region in the western part of the North Atlantic Ocean, where a number of aircraft and ships are said to have disappeared under mysterious circumstances. 

The plane’s location would mean that a triangular shape could be drawn between the aircraft and two other planes that crashed in the region. 

In 1997 two people died when a short-haul Cessna 208 Caravan flight crashed into mountains near Kampong Chhnang some 86 miles east of Mr Wilson’s sighting. 

Then in 2007 22 people were killed when the Antonov 24B aircraft crashed in Phnom Damrey and the wreckage was found in the mountains 80 miles southwest of Phnom Penh. 

Yesterday, part-time plane hunter Daniel Boyer claimed that a second cash site had been spotted in Cambodia.

The images show what he claims to be the missing Malaysia Airlines cockpit and tail north-west of the Cambodian capital. 

Mr Boyer said one piece of the machinery measures 17.8ft – close to the 19ft 3in of a Boeing 777 cockpit.

Another piece allegedly measures 31.7ft whereas an aircraft tail would usually measure 30ft.

Mr Boyer told the website: “I couldn’t believe it when I made the sighting.

“First the cockpit can be seen, and now this. The debris definitely needs to be investigated.”

However, aviation researcher Yijun Yu has argued that the imagery is the result of a system glitch or outdated Google images of the spot. 

MH370 disappeared on 8 March 2014, en route from Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, to Beijing with 239 people on board.

The plane was just 38 minutes into the flight, when it lost contact with Malaysia Airlines.
