Courtesy CNN/Sky News A CHINESE satellite looking into the missing flight MH370 has "observed a suspected crash area at sea", in what experts say is the first solid lead in the search for the missing plane. Three satellite images, published by China's State Administration for Science, Technology and Industry, appear to show wreckage fragments in the sea on Sunday - one day after the jet carrying 239 disappeared. This image, first released by CCTV America, shows an object in the ocean spotted by Chinese satellites on Sunday. Picture: Supplied Source: Supplied The satellite spotted three blips, the largest of which is 24m by 22m in size. The coordinates released by the Chinese agency would place the object in in the South China Sea between Malaysia and Vietnam, according to the BBC. Another satellite image, first released to CCTV America. Picture: Supplied Source: Supplied A former US aviation safety official has said the images represent the first solid lead consistent with the Malaysia Airlines plane's flight path. Peter Goelz, former managing director of the US federal National Transportation Safety Board, told CNN: "These (images) are the first solid piece of evidence we have that are on the correct flight path." A third satellite image released by China’s State Administration for Science, Technology and Industry. Picture: Supplied Source: Supplied The US Navy reportedly has a destroyer already in the area and has deployed another vessel to investigate. It has not been confirmed whether the blips are the wreckage of the missing flight. The Chinese agency provided no explanation why the images were only released Wednesday. The US has cautioned it may not be the wreckage as ships have been known to dump junk at sea in the past. Final words from the cockpit Missing plane's missing hour mystery The Boeing 777-200 took off from Kuala Lumpur bound for Beijing at 12:41am local time on Saturday. The plane vanished off the radar around 50 minutes later at 1:30am. No distress signal was sent. An international air and sea search involving 12 countries has entered its sixth straight day. More to come.
  3. I wonder if there is a posibility that the so called aircraft missing news covered in media is part of a diversion from an ongoing situation.....ie the plane was hijacked and landed in an undisclosed military controlled air base and efforts are being made to secure the passengers and crew.........
