The principal inventor of the WSPR protocol, Nobel laureate Joe Taylor (K1JT), has stated:

I do not believe that historical data from the WSPR network can provide any information useful for aircraft tracking.

Another MH370 researcher and amateur radio hand comments on potential deficiencies in the approach and the interpretation of the data here.

It's certainly an interesting approach, certainly the only active new element in the search effort, but it is unlikely that it is capable of producing the quality data currently being attributed to it. Never say never though, right?
Correct terminology pahleese! We are radio HAMS, not HANDS! More correctly for the non-US speaking, 'radio amateurs' as defined in the ITU regulations.

Typo corrected. As a radio amateur any views on the substance of the thread, whether archived WSPR data can be used to detect any aircraft anywhere at any time?

Seriously, I think anyone with any decent level of aviation experience is turned off every time his name and 'Aviation Expert' comes up on the banner at the bottom of the screen.... it's an insult to anyone with a modicum of aviation knowledge or experience.......

I know that; You know that, and most if not all in the Industry, know that.

The general Public, most regrettably, do not!

And therein lies the problem.

The problem is one step up the information food chain - the “aviation journalist” in the mainstream media.

Most are only capable of doing reviews of business class lounges or commentary of the merits of the the various airline’s offerings of free onboard pyjamas.

This leaves the way clear for the publicity seeking, self serving charlatan to peddle his/her theories without the inconvenience of rigorous questioning.

To be fair, what hope does your average twenty something year old journo with a soft liberal arts degree have when faced with the gravitas of a grizzly 70 year old ex-airline captain? Or some hungry wonk with a PhD with a “novel” theory who’s hunting for a research grant?
