A CHINESE satellite has found evidence of a “suspected crash site” for missing Malaysia Airlines flight MH370 in what is considered to be the first solid lead in the search for the jet.
China’s State Administration for Science, Technology and Industry for National Defence (SASTIND) last night published three satellite images which appear to show three floating objects in the sea on Sunday — just one day after the plane disappeared.
The satellite spotted three blips of varying sizes, the largest of which is 24m by 22m.
Chinese agency SASTIND gave coordinates of 105.63 east longitude, 6.7 north latitude, which would put it in waters northeast of where it took off in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, south of Vietnam and close to where the plane lost contact with air traffic control.
