An Indonesian fisherman claims he has the key to one of the greatest aviation mysteries of all time.
Rusli Khusmin handed investigators GPS coordinates of where he believes MH370 went down, after claiming he and his crew witnessed the tragedy on March 8, 2014.
The 42-year old said he saw the flight “move like a broken kite” and was able to record the exact coordinates of where the plane went into the water, as per to News Corp.
According to Khusmin’s calculations, the plane went down in the Sumatran Sea between Malaysia and Indonesia.
“I saw the plane moving from left to right like a broken kite,” he said at a news conference.
“There was no noise, just black smoke as a result of fires before it crashed into the water.”
Khusmin has sworn on the Koran he is telling the truth, but could not explain why it had taken him nearly five years to come forward.
MH370 went missing on 8 March 2014 with 239 people on board, including six Australians, while flying from Kuala Lumpur to Beijing.
The whereabouts of the flight has led to many theories and speculation but as far as solid evidence goes, there’s not much to go on.
The flight is thought to have changed course shortly after leaving Malaysian airspace, flying for more than six hours with its navigation systems turned off before plunging into the Indian Ocean.
In July Malaysian investigators released their final report on the disappearance of the flight, concluding they had not been able to determine the cause of the plane’s disappearance.
However, what they were able to determine was that the plane was manually turned around mid-air, cancelling out speculation that it had been under control of autopilot. The report also concluded that “unlawful interference by a third party” could not be ruled out.
Malaysian prime minister Mahathir Mohamad has previously said investigators would consider continuing the search if new clues came to light.
The plane’s disappearance has turned into one of the largest underwater search operations in history, turning up no results besides three wing fragments.
