Officials have argued that the likely crash site remains somewhere in the southern Indian Ocean – thousands of miles off Perth on the west coast of Australia and where the current trawl for Flight MH370 is taking place….
In his letter, volunteer investigator Andre Milne said it appeared the pilot planned to use Flight MH370 for “provocative action” against the US military base on the island of Diego Garcia, in the middle of the Indian Ocean.
He added: “Whoever was in control of the flight wanted MH370 to be observed by the inhabitants of the Maldive atolls, during daylight, as flying south towards Diego Garcia.”
Mr Milne said his latest claims generate ”irreversible damage to the credibility of the Australian Government and Inmarsat” – a British satellite firm involved in the official search for Flight MH370.
He continued: “There’s little doubt that there should be a full and comprehensive explanation to all of the questions that have yet to be answered.
“There are now almost desperate claims by the Government of Australia that MH370 disintegrated upon impact into the southern Indian Ocean in spite of never producing one single piece of corroborative physical evidence.”
His letter to Interpol comes as officials admitted most of the wreckage of Flight MH370 will be left on the sea floor if it is ever found.
A spokesman for the Australian Transport Safety Bureau, who are in charge of the official search operation, said their teams would only retrieve “selected components” – meaning the fuselage would remain submerged while the black box and cockpit voice recorder would be brought to the surface.
