According to Kay Smythe a reporter for conservative leaning news outlet, the Daily Caller, new information published in a December report reveals how a fisherman from Australia is claiming to have pulled up a piece of the Malaysia Airlines plane that mysteriously vanished without a trace a decade ago out of the ocean. If this is true, it’s a huge development that could lead to discovering what actually happened to Flight MH370 back in March 2014.
The plane disappeared off radar with all 227 passengers and 12 crew members aboard. No one knows what happened to the plane or any of the individuals on it that day. It’s one of those haunting mysteries that always leaves you feeling a little uncomfortable when you think about it. There’s always the possibility of a supernatural element of some sort being involved in the disappearance which is unsettling. That is to be expected when something like this occurs.
However, if pieces of the craft are discovered, that could put some of those, “out of the box” theories to rest.
Check out further details from the report:
Deep-sea fisherman Kit Olver, 77, who works off South Australia’s eastern coast, told the Sydney Morning Herald that he was out trawling one day, a few months after the plane went missing, and felt his net snag on something beneath the waves. And though he didn’t tell anyone about it until now, what he discovered has eaten away at him ever since.
“It was a bloody great wing of a big jet airliner,” he told the outlet. “I’ve questioned myself; I’ve looked for a way out of this. I wish to Christ I’d never seen the thing … but there it is. It was a jet’s wing.” The wing was apparently bigger than anything off a small plane, and Olver would know. He used to fly Cessnas when he was younger.
And the wing was apparently bigger than anything even used by private jets. And although Olver was the one to come forward with his story, his crewmates from that day all concur with his retelling of the events. One of them, George Currie, who Olver apparently hasn’t spoken to in years, knew exactly why the Sydney Morning Herald was calling him all these years later.
“You’ve got no idea what trouble we had when we dragged up that wing,” Currie went on to say as he recounted the experience, echoing Olver’s claims. “It was incredibly heavy and awkward. It stretched out the net and ripped it. It was too big to get up on the deck.”
Currie described the wing as being large, white, and obviously from a commercial plane due to its size. He then said the crew spent the entire day attempting to bring the wing on board and get it out of the net. They never managed to do so, thus Olver instructed the crew to cut the $20,000 net so they could head home. He never spoke of the event to anyone because of a bad experience he had with journalists a long time ago. According to the fisherman, a report contacted his wife and informed her that one of his trawlers had sank into the ocean and that he was missing at sea. He was fine, of course, and didn’t really want anything to do with the media after the experience. Can’t say I blame him there.
He did alert authorities of the situation as soon as he got back to port. But he was told he was wrong, and had probably just pulled up something from an old shipping container in the region. And without any physical evidence, all Olver, Currie and the other crew members have is a memory and a rough location of where the wing allegedly was found.
Claims have come out of Africa that other pieces of the plane have been discovered, though there has not been any confirmation those parts were authentic.
