A researcher claims to have found the missing Malaysia Airlines flight MH370.

The plane was heading to Kuala Lumpur from Beijing when it disappeared over the South Indian Ocean on March 8, 2014.

There were 239 people on board.

Eight years later, one woman claims to know what happened to MH370.

The plane reportedly performed a U-turn less than an hour into the flight and was travelling in the opposite direction to Kuala Lumpur when communication failed.

Investigators have never managed to get a proper explanation for the disappearance, though many unconfirmed theories have been floated since 2014.

Now, the disappearance is the feature of a new three-part Netflix documentary called MH370: The Plane That Disappeared.

In the series, a volunteer satellite researcher, Cyndi Hendry, says the plane may have crashed thousands of miles from where the main search took place.

Hendry worked for satellite imagery company Tomnod and found what she thinks is ‘evidence’ of debris from MH370 in the South China Sea just days after the incident occurred.

She claims her discovery was ignored at the time, as the consensus was that the plane had gone down in the Indian Ocean.

The researcher recalls: “When I saw the anguish on the faces of these family members, I thought I had to do something.

“It just tugged on my heartstrings. My hobby is photography, so I have an eye for detail.

“I thought I could be a great person to help look for this plane from the satellite images.”

Hendry goes on to say she found a piece of the plane wreckage with the ‘M’ on it while surveying the area by satellite.

She claims the shape of the ‘M’ is an ‘almost perfect match’ to how it would appear on a Malaysia Airlines plane.

Hendry says: “The satellite images were empty. It was just the blackness of the sea. Then you press next, more black scans. So much black. And then finally, there’s something white.”

She also claims to have seen ‘white debris’ in the sea close to Vietnam, which is not far from where the plane disappeared from view.

She continues: “I pulled the schematics off the internet for a Boeing 777. And I was able to identify a piece as the nose cone.

“That’s when I started saying, ‘Holy crap! There’s a piece of debris. There’s the airplane’.

“And then I started seeing more pieces. Something that looked like the fuselage. Something that looked like the tail. I got goosebumps.”

Hendry still claims that her ideas were ignored by investigators and Malaysia Airlines, but is sure she had come across ‘evidence in the South China Sea’.

“The more I searched, the more debris I found,” she adds.

“I feel certain that this is where MH370 ended up, off of Vietnam.

“At that point, I already had contacted Malaysia Airlines. I tried to reach out to so many people to tell them that this debris exists.

“Nobody was listening to me.”

MH370: The Plane That Disappeared is now available to stream on Netflix.
