MH370 smoking gun: Radar data ‘WRONG and INCOMPATIBLE’ with satellite evidence expert

“INCORRECT” radar data was used by the official investigation into missing Malaysia Airlines flight 370, according to an independent air safety expert from Brussels who claims it was “incompatible” with satellite evidence.

The expert called this aspect of the calculations a “smoking gun” and claimed the Australian Transport Safety Bureau (ATSB) even admitted themselves that the radar and satellite evidence could not be used in conjunction. MH370 disappeared on March 8, 2014, en route from Kuala Lumpur to Beijing and the 239 people on board were never seen again. In an attempt to track the plane, investigators used communication links with satellite 3F1, owned by British satellite telecommunications company Inmarsat.

Each communication was called a ‘handshake’ and an arc of seven of these were used to trace a predicted flight path.

However, investigators used this information alongside radar data that allegedly contradicts the arc theory.

They used the last radar point instead of the first satellite data point, discarding the latter in order to make both sets of data fit.

The aviation expert, who wishes to remain anonymous, said: “The June report avoided discussion of possible manoeuvres between the 6.22pm UTC last radar point and the 7.41pm UTC arc point, except for range estimates, due to the large number of possible scenarios.
