“It doesn’t help convince the Malaysians to sign a no find no fee contract to restart the search by claiming without proof that the captain was on a premeditated mass murder-suicide mission, and telling them experts know what bearing he plugged in and have calculated precisely where he crashed the plane.
“Let’s focus on the what and the where and find the crash site before delving into the who and the why. There has been more white noise about INMARSAT data, speculated simulator and flight bearings, and WSPR signals than there were actual signals from MH370 that night.
“So let’s get back to basics .. the only actual physical evidence of what happened to Malaysian 370 and where it is – is the debris. So let’s filter out the white noise of arguing experts, and go with the recommendation of the people that have directly contributed to finding half of the recovered pieces of the plane.
“Prof Chari Pattiaratchi (University of Western Australia) still recommends searching 32°S to 34° S, 70 nautical miles on both sides of the 7th arc. And we may as well add in the area from 34°S to 34.5° S to include the places where different experts place the X on different crash sites using different calculations of different data.
“I sincerely hope that Ocean Infinity will restart the search and that Malaysia will agree to another no find no fee contract in accordance with Prof. Chari’s recommendation. It is not my money or my risk, but my humble recommendation is: Re-examine the data where Ocean Infinity already searched to identify if there are any areas where debris could have been missed.
“Search the centerline between 32°S and 34.5° S searched by others, but not previously searched by Ocean Infinity with its improved technological capacity. Search 70 nm wide on both sides of the 7th arc in case the experts’ calculations are slightly off. So far all the recovered MH370 debris has been found by almost twenty different unrelated private citizens from six different countries. Let’s focus on the debris and oceanography, come together and agree on as much as we can, restart the underwater search, and find the rest of the plane and the truth.”
