A ground-breaking report has revealed a new possible location for flight MH370, the aircraft that disappeared over nine years ago.
The report said the new location is 1,560km west of Perth – slightly north of where it was previously thought to crash – at a depth of about 4,000m.

Authors of the case study, Richard Godfrey, Dr Hannes Coetzee and Prof. Simon Maskell, used amateur radio technology called Weak Signal Propagation Reporter (WSPR) to track the fight of MH370.
The technology had been developed over the last three years producing credible evidence in the search of the missing flight.
From MH370’s last known radar position, 67 positions were detected in the report over the six hours and 27 minutes of the flight – detected by 125 anomalous WSPR links.
The results are consistent with reports from Boeing, Inmarsat and the drift analysis by the University of Western Australia which analysed floating debris found in the Indian Ocean.
On March 8, 2014, MH370 departed Kuala Lumpur International Airport at 12:01am and was scheduled to arrive at Beijing Capital International at 6:30am.
In one of the greatest aviation mysteries of all time, it never arrived, with 237 people losing their lives.
