MH370 search underway in Cambodian jungle after sleuth spot…


AVIATION experts have used a helicopter to search the Cambodian jungle in a daring bid to find flight MH370 after a sleuth claimed to have spotted the wreckage online.

The missing jet vanished in March 2014 while en route to Beijing from Kuala Lumpur killing all 239 people on board.

Despite millions of pounds being spent on the unsuccessful search, British video producer Ian Wilson believes he has solved one of the greatest mysteries in aviation history by searching online.

Images from Google Maps show the outline of a large plane in a remote part of southern Cambodia  – which could simply be an aircraft flying directly below the satellite which photographed it.

But with a £53million finder’s fee up for grabs, a group of experts have used a helicopter to search the area in a bid to find the infamous plane, reports the Daily Star.

Wilson believes the wreckage of the Malaysia Airlines Boeing 777 is in a high-altitude, mountainous area on the outskirts of Phnom Penh.

Aviation consultant Zorba Parer, and Nara Kang, a local businessman, and reporter Michael Carr rented a chopper to scour the jungle after hearing of the Brit’s findings.

But despite searching 500 feet of the wilderness, Parer revealed they found no sign of a plane.

He said: “We tried to find any piece of plane that may have been scattered.

“But we found nothing.

“We couldn’t find a trace of aircraft or any sign of any bodies.”

Last week, China has used a space satellite to zoom in on a location in the Cambodian jungle, highlighted by Wilson.

The Chinese government used observation company Space View to focus in on the high-altitude area of the south east Asian country.

In a tweet, the firm said: “Sorry, no plane found there.”

However, the firm claim there was no sign of any plane, least of all the Malaysian Airlines aircraft which has been missing since March 2014.

In July this year, the Malaysian government released the findings of their investigation admitting they still do not know what happened to the passenger jet.
