Peter McMahon, 64, an Australian mechanical engineer, has declared that he has discovered the remains of the missing aircraft, Flight MH370.

The 64-year-old stated that he studied Google Maps images and NASA to conclude that the remains of the aircraft have been found near Mauritius, in an area 10 miles south of Round Island.

According to McMohan, the tail and wings of the aircraft have been seen floating in the ocean. He shared his findings and photos to the Australian Transport and Safety Bureau, who thoroughly studied it, and later confirmed that the photos could possibly be of the missing aircraft.

Flight MH370 vanished into thin air above the Indian Ocean on the 8th of March, 2014. The flight was traveling from Kuala Lumpur to Beijing, carrying 239 passengers and crew. All were declared dead.

Investigators and companies from Australia, China, and Malaysia invested over £115 million in search of the aircraft, but decided to officially quit in January 2017, after being unsuccessful.

Moreover, the 64-year-old claimed to have found parts of the missing aircraft’s front cabin in an area south of Rodrigues Island. Surprisingly, that specific area was not included in the search operations by teams and experts.

Talking to the Daily Star, McMohan claimed that the reason the aircraft could not be discovered was because it was shot down.

He said, “Four Americans were sent to Australia to oversee the findings of MH370. They have made sure that all information received has been hidden from the public, even our government – but why?

In regards to the authorities, McMohan stated, they (authorities) do not want it found as it’s full of bullet holes, finding it will only open another inquiry.”

One of the late passenger’s husband, Ghyslain Wattrelos, agreed with McMohan’s theory and stated that Vietnam, Malaysia and Thailand have withhold vital information from the victims’ families.

He said, “All the military from these countries have seen the plane if we believe that version. Why are they silent? I do not know, but there are also other countries that have information like England with Inmarsat, with Rolls-Royce, like the United States with Boeing and like the FBI who went the next day and took the pilot’s flight simulator and never said anything to the investigators.”
