Death threats and a professional break-in are not deterring MH370 tracking expert and aerospace engineer Richard Godfrey.
Mr Godfrey, whose revolutionary use of WSPRnet to track MH370 that disappeared over 8 years ago with 239 souls on board, has been attacked by various detractors, who question the technology.
Yesterday Mr Godfrey posted the following on his blog site:
“My home has been broken into and the police are investigating. They say it was a very professional job and suspect the involvement of a state actor.
“I have received a growing number of death threats and hate emails on both private and public email accounts from anonymous senders or people impersonating names from the MH370 passenger list.
“One of my private email accounts has been hacked and that account is in the process of being closed down. I have now moved to a much more secure email provider which requires double authentication. My public email address at [email protected] has not been breached by hackers.
“My website is subject to daily multiple so-called brute force attacks by hackers using multiple IP addresses from all over the globe, but fortunately, due to the sophisticated security system, no one has been able to break in as administrator of the website.”
Mr Godrey said that this “research into using WSPR to detect and track aircraft will continue. My website providing a forum for technical and scientific discussion regarding the search for MH370 will continue.”
Airlineratings.com was developed to provide everyone in the world a one-stop shop for everything related to airlines, formed by a team of aviation editors, who have forensically researched nearly every airline in the world.
Our rating system is rated from one to seven stars on safety – with seven being the highest ranking. Within each airline, you will find the country of origin, airline code, booking URL and seat map information. The rating system takes into account a number of different factors related to audits from aviation’s governing bodies, lead associations, as well as the airlines, own safety data. Every airline has a safety rating breakdown so you can see exactly how they rate.
Over 230 of the airlines on the site that carry 99 per cent of the world’s passengers have a product rating. Given that low cost, regional and full-service carriers are so different we have constructed a different rating system for each which can be found within each airline.
