The Malaysia Airlines plane disappeared on March 8, 2014, about 38 minutes after taking off from Kuala Lumpur Airport – Malaysia for Beijing – China.
According to News.com.au, despite an intensive search by multiple governments and private companies, flight MH370 has not been found and the fate of the 237 passengers is unknown.

A 229-page report published on August 30 estimated that the remains of the missing aircraft could be located about 1,560 km west of Perth – Australia.
This revelation came thanks to a technology called weak signal radio transmission, or WSPR.
Australian researchers, including Mr Richard Godfrey, Dr Hans Coetzee and Professor Simon Maskell, used WSPR to track the flight path of MH370.

“This technology has been developed over the past three years and the results show credible new evidence. They are consistent with Boeing and the University of Western Australia’s analysis of the fragments,” the researchers said. Debris was recovered around the Indian Ocean.
When an aircraft flies over the WSPR, it jams the signal, and these records are stored in a global database.

The study used these 125 anomalies to trace the path of MH370 over 6 hours after last radio contact with the aircraft at approximately 6:00 pm (local time) on 8 March 2014.
“Flight MH370 diverted towards the Indian Ocean and crashed due to running out of fuel after sending its last signal shortly after midnight,” the researchers said.
The plane’s new location – at a depth of 4,000 meters – which scientists say is in response to estimates from previous research and investigations.
Aviation expert Geoff Thomas commented on September 1: “The report has a very high level of reliability. It was carried out for 4 years and reviewed several times. Researchers are confident that they have determined the location of the ill-fated plane. Has given.
