GeoResonance Found MH370 Wreckage in the Bay of Bengal ?

                                           Data from GeoResonance in Adelaide, Australia- The team believes this shows possible MH370 wreckage in the Bay of Bengal. Video news report below.

PERTH, Australia - Has Australian company GeoResonance found MH370 wreckage in the Bay of Bengal?

 An Australian based company, called GeoResonanace, believes they may have found the wreckage of a Boeing 777 in the Bay of Bengal.

The company said they had found the wreckage of "a commercial airliners" on the Ocean floor, using advanced technology and analysis, some 5000 km from where authorities believe the missing Malaysian Airlines jet went down.

Authorities searching for MH370, both in Malaysia and Australia, have yet to respond to the new lead.

The company began using its advanced data collection and analysis services to help in the search for MH370 days after the jet went missing- now GeoResonance says they believe a spot in the Bay of Bengal is a serious lead that may solve the mystery.

 GeoResonance spokesperson Pavel Kursa told 7News in Adelaide that elements found in commercial airliners like 777s have been detected at the Bay of Bengal spot, in the northern corridor from MH370s last known location.

Have we been looking in the wrong location? MH370 wreckage may have been found in the northern corridor. 

Previous data showed there were no such elements there, on March 5 2014. That's three days before MH370 disappeared.

 “We identified chemical elements and materials that make up a Boeing 777 … these are aluminium, titanium, copper, steel alloys and other materials," Kursa said.

According to 7News in Adelaide, GeoResonance has spent weeks surveying and analysing over 2 million square kilometres to the north of the possible MH370 crash zone.

 Data was obtained from over 20 different technologies, the company said.

 Scientists from GeoResonance's Ukraine office spent weeks looking to the north of the flight’s last known location in the Indian Ocean.

Possible wreckage of "a commercial airliner" found off the coast of India and Bangladesh. 

The location of the possible wreckage lies in the very north of the Bay of Bengal, consistent with the northern corridor tracked by satellites, not the southern zone.

The team said they were stunned to find the possible wreckage of MH370 far from the multi-national search zone off Western Australia.

 “Our team was very excited when we found what we believe to be the wreckage of a commercial airliner,” Mr Pope, an Australian based member of GeoResonnance said.

“The wreckage wasn’t there prior to the disappearance of MH370."

"We’re not trying to say that it definitely is MH370, however it is a lead we feel should be followed up,” Pope said.

According to the GeoResonance website, the company uses big data analysis and advanced technology systems "to locate submersed structures, ships and aircraft. The technology has also been used to successfully identify WWII munitions that later led to the recovery of explosives."
