We have also being getting news in here in Hong Kong about this and many beleive this is the B777-200 that went down it could have broken apart where many parts are everywhere similar to the PAN AM 103 B741 incident over Lockerbie 1988 where many parts of the plane were scattered miles apart from the main point of impact but we have a different situation here of how this plane dissapeared.

The news broke here in the US about this It sounds like the aircraft headed inland but broke up into pieces in dense jungle. But why the satellites cannot pick these images up

I wonder if this is the wide bodied Boeing 777B-200 and finding human remains in there seats why have these claims being made without evidence or a photo. I understand dense jungle can hide many things with over growth but there would be some clearance showing the impact of the wreckage and snapped tree's or a black grey smear viable from the air. But being a year on growth of the jungle would hide this and the wreckage. Interesting find indeed they should send investigators or searchers in there to locate this site. Our paper headlined this as well

I found this same article here, According to the aritcle a pilot was found still in his seat with the safety belt on. Also according to the article this was known for a month before it was reported. You only found dead bodies why not make every attempt to report it?
The report raised speculation that the wreckage could have been that of MH370, which vanished in March last year on a flight from Kuala Lumpur to Beijing with 239 passengers and crew on board.

Authorities in the Philippines have ruled out suggestions that plane wreckage reportedly found on an island in the south of the country is of missing Malaysia Airlines plane MH370.
A resident, Jamil Omar, had reported to police on the weekend that his teenage nephew had found aircraft wreckage, with the Malaysian flag painted on its side, crashed on Sugbay Island in Tawi Tawi.
Mr Omar's nephew, who was hunting for birds with his friends at the time, also reported that inside the wreckage there were human bones, including a skeleton in the pilot's chair with the seatbelt still fastened, The Straits Times reported.

Even the people residing in the island for the longest time have no knowledge of this."
A senior Philippines police official told The Straits Times that there had been no reports of any aircraft crashing on any of their islands
He said if any aircraft had "gone down in our area there would have been alerts from civil aviation authorities".
"To date, there has been none," he said.
In July this year, a piece of the missing plane's wing, known as a flaperon, was found on the shore of Reunion Island in the Indian Ocean, about 7600 kilometres from Sugbay Island.
A technician from Airbus Defence and Space, which had made the part for Boeing, formally identified one of three numbers found on the flaperon as being the serial number of the MH370 Boeing 777.
The disappearance of MH370 last year triggered one of the largest searches for an aircraft focusing in the Southern Indian Ocean

Plane wreckage containing 'many skeletons' and painted with the Malaysian flag has reportedly been found in the Philippines, prompting speculation it could be missing Flight MH370.
Police confirmed they had received reports of the discovery in thick jungle on the remote island of Sugbai in Tawi-Tawi province.
An audio technician, Jamil Omar, contacted police in Malaysia to say his aunt, Siti Kayam, had stumbled upon the wreckage while she and others were hunting for birds.
Police commissioner Jalaludin Abdul Rahman, based in neighbouring Borneo, said the woman claimed she climbed into the smashed fuselage and saw skeletons.

However, police are understood to have not dismissed the possibility that the flaperon could have broken off from the aircraft after it took off in March last year to fly from Kuala Lumpur to Beijing, the missing part causing the pilots problems in handling the jet.
Adding to the general mystery is the report by oil rig worker Mike McKay who told the Mail exclusively earlier this year that he stood by his observation of an 'aircraft on fire' as he stood at night on his rig off the southern tip of Vietnam.
For MH370 to have come down on remote Sugbai island, it would have had to divert from its north east course after take off and head due east towards the lower Philippines islands.
A catastrophic disaster, an explosion, a fire, or even a hijacking, could have resulted in it veering around the skies, experts have said.
Australian, Malaysian and Chinese authorities have been sharing information based on satellite signals that have resulted in an intensive search of waters south west of Australia in the southern Indian Ocean.
Despite high-tech scouring of the waters and the ocean floor, there has been no sign of the plane in that area, the only discovery confirmed as being from the aircraft being the flaperon found earlier this year on Reunion.
Whether the mystery of the plane's final resting place along with its 239 passengers and crew will be solved with the latest report of 'wreckage' is expected to be known within the next day or so.
Police in Sabah, in northern Borneo, confirmed that Mr Omar had called in at the police headquarters to personally lodge a report about the wreckage.

If the story is true, we at least got a lot of oceanographic data on the Indian Ocean.
If not true, we still go the oceanographic data.

I'm with you, Joel. Actually hope this is MH370 and the experts can now fix their attention on why. The families need a definitive closure.
