Former Qantas 747 captain Mike Glynn has completed an exhaustive analysis of the weather on the route of MH370 and has found that many course changes were related to thunderstorm activity, which mirrors the flightpath identified by British aerospace engineer Richard Godfrey.
The finding adds more credibility to Mr. Godfrey’s groundbreaking WSPRnet tracking of MH370 which points to a crash 1993km west of Perth, Western Australia.
Mr. Glynn found that “historical weather data from the time period from where MH370 diverted from its flight plan, contains photographic and data derived evidence of numerous atmospheric regions which contained severe thunderstorms that, in the due course of airliner operation, would mandate pilots to request and initiate diversions of the aircraft from the cleared track, on safety grounds.
“The majority of these diversions noted in the WSPR data occurred in the vicinity of the south-western coast of Sumatra and during the first half of the track southward as the aircraft encountered elements of the Inter-Tropical Convergence Zone, which was located due to seasonal effects, to the south of the Equator.”
Mr. Glynn found however that there was “no meteorological reasons for any of the small track changes noted prior to the aircraft reaching the westernmost coast of Sumatra.”
In November Mr. Richard Godfrey announced that MH370 impacted the ocean 1,933km due west of Perth at 33.177°S 95.300°E and lies at a depth of 4,000m in a very mountainous area with deep ravines and a volcano.
Malaysia Airlines flight MH370 vanished during a flight from Kuala Lumpur to Beijing on March 8, 2014, before plunging into the southern Indian Ocean — taking 239 passengers and crew.
Mr. Godfrey has used a revolutionary technology called weak signal propagation, first revealed by AirlineRatings.com in April 2021, to track the plane’s final movements.
Now Mr. Godfrey has published an update on the facts surrounding MH370, GDTAAA, and WSPRnet, which you can read here.
