David Mearns, the director of UK-based Bluewater Recoveries, has claimed that search teams have finally managed to find the crash site of the Boeing 777-200ER, 40 days after it went missing. One of the world’s most experienced wreck hunters is also of a belief that recovering its black boxes is inevitable.
Mears has been quoted saying on ABC News Network that “I think essentially they have found the wreckage site. While the government hasn’t announced that yet, if somebody asked me: ‘Technically, do they have enough information to say that?’ My answer is unequivocally ‘Yes’.’
Malaysia Airlines Flight MH370 departed from Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia to Beijing, China on March 8 2014 and just after 40 minutes from its take-off it got disappeared. The Boeing 777-200ER was carrying 227 passengers and 12 crew members on board, and the reason behind its disappearance is still unknown. The plane got lost between Malaysia and Vietnam and no distress signals were received prior to the disappearance of the flight.
Malaysia is also not ruling out the possibility of terrorist involvement behind the disappearance of the flight. The FBI along with the investigating teams of more than 20 countries is presently in search of the missing plane.
