MH370 May Be Found On December 3, According To Mathematical Calculations
The missing Malaysia Airlines Flight 370 may be found in the next four weeks, particularly on December 3, if the mathematical and geometrical calculation by Captain Simon Hardy is anything to go by. The senior British Boeing 777 pilot calculated that the missing MH370 will be found at S39 22’ 46” EO87’ 20”.Advertisement
The most talked about equation from Hardy was published in January this year by the aviation magazine, Flightglobal. A report from the West Australian on Monday quoted the publication’s consulting editor David Learmount as saying, “By December 3, Fugro Discovery expects to have completed the search of the area containing, according to Hardy’s calculations, the wreck of MH370 [is].” The editor added that Captain Hardy “is excited about the next month’s search, having invested more than a year of mental and emotional energy into working out where MH370 flew, and why. He wants it found.”
The location identified by Hardy is outside the initial search Area of 60,000 square kilometers initially identified by the Australian Transport Safety Bureau or ATSB that is leading the search for the missing MH370. Also in January, Flightglobal reported that Hardy had already spoken with the ATSB. In April, the bureau announced that the search area has been expanded beyond the original 60,000 square kilometers to enable up to 120,000 square kilometers to searched if required. In February, the Huffington Post reported that a spokesman for ATSB described Hardy’s mathematical equation as “credible.” The spokesman also confirmed that the bureau had been in contact with Hardy
MH370 disappeared on March 8, 2014 en route from Kuala Lumpur to Beijing along with 239 passengers on board. At the request of the Malaysian Government, Australia accepted responsibility to head the search for the plane. ATSB had since been leading the underwater search for MH370 in the southern Indian Ocean. Two vessels, the Fugro Discovery and Fugro Equator, were since deployed and have been conducting underwater search. As of November 11, more than 70,000 square kilometers of the seafloor have been search so far.
