Flight MH370: Aviation expert reveals the plane wreckage could be found one day | Travel News | Travel

Flight MH370 crashed four years ago today and remains one of the biggest aviation mysteries in history.

What caused the accident and where the aircraft is located has yet to be solved, with it being presumed to be somewhere in the Indian Ocean.

All 239 passengers were killed which included 12 crew members, the remains of whom are also yet to be found.

Will the MH370 wreckage ever be found?

Aviation Safety Investigator David Gleave spoke to Express.co.uk for the new series of Air Crash Investigation, discussing the aviation mystery.

Mr Gleave explained that finding it is “not a technical issue” but “is time and money”.

“The technology has proven itself capable of finding things on the seabed three miles down in other areas of the world,” he continued. “They’ve found shipwrecks in the Indian Ocean, all sorts of things.

“It is just a very big area to look in. And it is quite a small object of only 60m.”

However, the technology has allowed objects as “small as the engine” to be found on the seabed, which are just a few metres in size.

This means that other larger parts such as the fuselage could be found in the future.

Mr Gleave revealed: “Yes, it can be found. It is just a technicality of time.”

The reason behind the crash of the plane has long been disputed, with conspiracy theories including terrorism, pilot suicide or an insurance scam.

Yet Mr Gleave explained that the location of it going missing is suspicious.

He told Express.co.uk: “The airplane disappeared between two international air traffic controls so that confused air traffic control systems.

“That’s where you would hijack and that’s where the plane disappeared.”
