Did Reddit Find Malaysian Airlines Flight 370? Possible wreckage at 5°39'08.0"N 98°50'38.0"E



Possible debris in the water in the Ocean off Sumatra, Indonesia in the Malacca Straits. 

 Users of the social network Reddit and Twitter may have found debris in the water, possibly linked to missing Malaysian Airlines Flight 370, as a Greek oil tanker steams toward the same spot after Indonesian reports of possible luggage in the water.

 Richard Barrow has posted several images to Twitter of a satellite image that could possibly show debris from an airplane on the surface of the Ocean at coordinates 5°39'08.0"N 98°50'38.0"E, after collaborating with users of Reddit over the last 2 days.

 Most interestingly, on request of the Indonesian maritime authorities, a Greek flagged oil tanker was steaming to the same location identified by the Reddit and Twitter users late Sunday evening, March 16.

The area is at the same point authorities last lost verifiable contact with MH370, as the plane headed north-west towards the Andaman and Nicobar Islands.

 Below are images posted to Twitter and Reddit by several users, including Journalist Steven Daglas, from location 5°39'08.0"N 98°50'38.0"E.

    1. Tomnod has already filtered and checked this spot. It's just a boat.

  4. I've seen people post this picture before this Richard person did. If this is the wreckage I really hope that the families can finally have some closure.

  5. I posted and reported this image on Friday, BEFORE it showed up on reddit (or anywhere else). Please see @jillsytaylor on Twitter for confirmation.

    2. And I'm sure others tagged it before you.

  6. I played with this image in photoshop along with a stock photo of a Malasian plane and it sure seems like a match to me. However, Bloomberg news put out an article saying the last known location now puts it 1,000 miles west of Perth, Australia..

  7. Many people on Tomnod saw this and tagged it. Comments and links to the map have been posted on facebook pages dedicated to the search, as well as Titter and Reddit. It is a collaborative effort. NIce work by Micheal who made this image even clearer.

    1. Exactly. Kudos to all who have been tagging this since at least last Friday. Disappointed not to have heard more one way or the other from the Greek tanker ( or a faster boat for that matter).

  9. How would they know the coordinates if they're using Tomnod? I think this is bogus.

    1. You can find this on Tomnod as well if you want. I ran across it by accident, without connection from anyone else.

      So it's certainly not bogus.
