An aerospace engineer claims to have found Malaysia Airlines flight 370 using revolutionary new tracking technology.

British expert Richard Godfrey claims the plane crashed into the Indian Ocean 1993km west of Perth and lies 4000m below the surface.

The Boeing 777-200 plane vanished without a trace during a flight from Kuala Lumpur to Beijing on March 8, 2014, with 239 people on board.

In a new report released on Tuesday, Godfrey said he used a high tech system called weak signal propagation to track the plane’s final movements.

He describes the technology as a “bunch of tripwires that work in every direction over the horizon to the other side of the globe”.

As planes fly through these “tripwires” the signal is disrupted.

Godfrey said he combined the new method with data from the satellite communications system onboard MH370 to track the missing plane’s doomed final flight.

“Together the two systems can be used to detect, identify and localise MH370 during its flight path into the Southern Indian Ocean,” he said.

According to his report, the aircraft crashed about a minute after the final satellite link-up at 8.19am over the Indian Ocean.

Godfrey believes the plane rests at the base of Broken Ridge, which is an oceanic plateau in an area filled with ravines and an underwater volcano.

This location was not in the original search area defined by the Australian Transport Safety Bureau in 2015, but it is at the northern part of the 2016 extended 120,000sq km search area.

A different search in 2018 by the US run Ocean Infinity missed the location by just 28km.

Godfrey told Sunrise on Wednesday he was “very confident” he had identified where MH370 is located.

“We have quite a lot of data from the satellite, we have oceanography, drift analysis, we have the performance data from Boeing, and now this new technology.

“All four align with one particular point in the Indian Ocean.”

Godfrey said he believes the crash was a “hijacking” and an “act of terrorism” by pilot Captain Zaharie Ahmad Shah, who “decided to divert his aircraft and make it disappear in one of the remotest places in the world.”

Mystery finally solved?

The West Australian aviation editor Geoffrey Thomas has described the new report as a “huge breakthrough”.

This is because the suggested crash location is in the zone where the University of Western Australia (UWA) Head of Oceanography Professor Charitha Pattiaratchi had earlier claimed MH370 is located.

“What’s very interesting about it is the location identified by Richard Godfrey is extremely close to the location identified by UWA,” he told Sunrise.

“It really is more evidence that where UWA said this airplane is, that’s where we have to have another good, hard look.”

Thomas said it’s likely a new search for the plane will be launched following the report’s release.

“There are several people who are extremely interested in going back and having a look.

“I expect that next summer they will launch another search for MH370.”
