Report: MH370 wreckage may have been found in the Philippines
The presence of the Malaysian flag has prompted speculation that the the wreckage may be that of Malaysia Airlines' missing Flight MH370.Locals on the island claim to have discovered a wrecked airplane fuselage along with the skeletal remains of the passengers and crew, the Daily Mail reported.
However, the likelihood that MH370 has been found in a Filipino jungle is very low.This latest discovery doesn't fit the flight's projected flight path. Evidence show that MH370 took off from Kuala Lumpur and flew northeast towards China before turning west over the Malay Peninsula. Investigators believe the aircraft then turned south - flying over the southern Indian ocean before crashing after running out of fuel.
The search for the Malaysian jet had been focused on a 7.3-million-square-mile area in the southern Indian Ocean off the western coast of Australia.Australia's News.com reported that Filipino police are baffled, as they have not had any recent reports of a plane crash on the island.
MH370 disappeared on March 8, 2014, while flying from Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, to Beijing, China.9M-MRO - vanished with 239 passengers and crew onboard. Should the wreckage located in the Philippines be from MH370, then many theories about the fate of the missing airliner will be proved incorrect.
