Malaysia Airlines flight MH370: Courtney Love claims she has 'found' missing plane
The Hole singer claims she may have found the missing jetliner after posting an image and co-ordinates on her Facebook page
Courtney Love claims she may have “found” the missing Malaysia Airlines flight, even offering exact co-ordinates as to the aircraft’s location on her Facebook page.
The Hole singer, who admitted she is “no expert” on the subject of missing flight MH370, announced her theory that it may have crashed with an annotated screen grab showing what she believes to be evidence of an oil slick and an aircraft.
Love used red arrows, presumably added in Microsoft Paint, pointing to the areas of ocean showing “oil” and “plane” for clarification, even adding a “CL” signature.
She wrote: “I'm no expert but up close this does look like a plane and an oil slick. Prayers go out to the families #MH370 and it’s like a mile away Pulau Perak, where they 'last' tracked it 5°39'08.5"N 98°50'38.0"E but what do I know?”
Her “‘co-ordinates” were questioned by some bemused Facebook users. One wrote: “This just in to CNN. The jet has been located by Courtney Love,” while others countered: “just imagine if Courtney Love did actually find that plane…”
Love used an image grab from the Tomnod website, a tool that uses crowdsourcing to identify objects and places in satellite images.
Last week, Earth imagery company DigitalGlobe trained its satellites on the Gulf of Thailand and snapped high resolution photos of 3,200 square kilometres before activating the crowdsource platform, so users could help solve the mystery of the plane’s whereabouts.
Love also posted the picture on to her Twitter account when one user questioned the strength of the claims made in her picture with a simple "I don't see it".
The Malaysian Airlines jet disappeared with its 239 passengers and crew less than one hour into its flight from Kuala Lumpur to Beijing.
A massive search operation in the Indian Ocean and beyond has yet to find any trace of the aircraft. Twenty-six countries are currently involved in the search.
