Could MH370 have landed in Australia?


As I passed through the remote outback town of Cunnamulla, QLD in August last year, I found a clue to the mystery of the missing flight,
although it seems that the enterprising exhibitor of an airplane wing was told to modify the signage - even bad taste Aussie humour has its limits.

Good question.

I cannot help feeling that somebody, somewhere, knows more about this than the public has ever been told.

They found a wing washed up on an island about 6 weeks ago but not heard anything since.

Hmm Cunnamulla sounds as if it is related to an act in "Not the Nine O'Clock News" the "Kinder Lingers" song.

If you do not know what I am referring to then you are too young to have seen the show in 1982

I'll have to ask you to explain, Derek - you are such a cunning linguist ...

Yes Nigel, I'd say that is a given.

I remember seeing TV footage on that, Paul - somewhere near Madagascar if memory serves?

Re: Could MH370 have landed in Australia?

It wasn't a wing but a "flaparon", a small control surface once attached to the wing. The French said it had the same serial numbers on it from the missing plane. That small floating part washed up on an island in a part of the pacific which they would have expected to see something due to the ocean currents, if the plane had been lost where they thought it had, in that time frame.

It's all gone quiet after they found it though, I thought it may have led to more debri being found and a clue to where the wreckage is.
