MH370 Southern Philippines?

It would be contrary to a lot of theories to date but is a developing story...

Try MH370 on Google news

Utter Nonsense

But on a slow news day, it gives folks something to yammer about.

We all want the answer, but...

can any of the experts here imagine a scenario where a B777 crashes into the jungle and there are still identifiable body parts inside, never mind a skeleton with headset still attached?

Meanwhile, we have the Inmarsat data that puts the aircraft somewhere in the Southern Ocean, and we have a flaperon that has been shown through forensic examination (that is, sufficient say beyond reasonable doubt to the satisfaction of a court of law) to have come from 9M-MRO, washed up on la Reunion. It's a long stretch to say that either piece of evidence proves the other or even provides a useful clue to the final resting place of 9M-MRO, other than saying where it probably isn't. I'm reluctant to say never, but it doesn't seem plausible that the only piece of debris found to date could drift past Borneo, Sumatra and/or Java and end up on la Reunion.

They might have found the wreckage of an aircraft with skeletal remains inside, but I'll wager that the chances of it being MH370 are about 1 in 100,000,000,000,000. More likely some wreckage from WW2.

There is no way it's MH 370.... But imagine for a second it it was.

How many of you, on a weekend camping expedition, would be able to identify a Malaysian flag if you came across one?

I live here in the Philippines, one's average Filipino isn't particularly well educated and often isn't even aware of the geography of their own province.

Which is why we should not trust the SAR who reportedly traveled to the search area on a "gunboat". How about send some real investigators to have a look and verify the source?

Sugbai is hardly a mile wide.
A village hugs a coastline, with apparently no other inland development.
Hard to imagine that a fusalege would plummet into the jungle and not be heard.
Also it is amazing from a western perdpective that a WWII plane could remain undiscovered for so long so close to a village.
