What Really Happened to MH370? The Witness Stories.
Updated February 2018

This theoretical MH370 flight path model is based on ear and eye witness reports that were reported by various witnesses who believe they saw. or heard MH370. as well as satellite imagery and logical speculation based on these reports. After studying these witness reports for the last year I have become convinced there must be some truth to the story these witnesses are telling us.
This cannot be just a coincidence that when you just happen to layout 30+ random witness reports on a map, and look at them in chronological order by geographical location , they seem to describe a flight path of a plane, that looked very much like MH370 to them. Hard to imagine that all these witenesses saw a mirage, or just happen to see another commercial jetliner flying at low altitude on fire at same time MH370 goes missing and some world airline forgot to report that incident to the public. More likely the jet these witnesses saw was MH370 than any other plane on Earth.
If we consider the premise that the witnesses are telling us the truth in this tragedy then we can see how all the experts in the world are wrong because the data they were given must be false or in error. We can also see how MH370 was commandeered and flown to the Maldives and where it most probably landed. After researching the MH370 tragedy for 30 months I am convinced the witnesses are telling us the truth about MH370 and the radar data and Inmarsat data are just a smoke and mirrors show, created by a decoy aircraft, to cover-up this truth and lead us on a wild goose chase into the SIO based on this false data.
MH370 FLIGHT PATH:
Based on these eye and ear witness reports I believe this is what happened to MH370 after it disappeared from radar near IGARI at 17:21 UTC.
Shortly after the transponders were turned off after the waypopint IGARI, at 17:21 UTC, MH370 begun to bank clockwise and then did a nose dive descent to get down to low altitudes as quickly as possible in order for them to evade radar as quickly as possible. During this exteremly rapid nose dive descent MH370 briefly exceeded MACH 1 and broke the sound barrier creating a sonic boom which was heard by 8 villagers (4) in Marang at about 17:30UTC. Once the plane got down to lower altitudes in more dense atmosphere the hijacker/pilot was able to pull the plane out of the dive and was able to maintain levelled flight without any significient damage to the airframe structure. report
Shortly after this 2 fisherman (5) in the South China Sea near the Malaysian/Thailand border witnessed MH370 flying at low altitude near their position. One fisherman said " the lights were as big as coconuts". report
At around 17:45UTC a businessman (6) in Kota Bharu notices a low flying plane over the South China Sea descending rapidly. report
At 18:00 UTC a farmer (7) in Tumpat, Malaysia sees MH370 flying at low altitude with it's tail fin on fire. The farmer also reports noticing the MAS logo on it's tail fin. report
At this point it is still not clear to me as to why MH370 was on fire. One possible explanation that I have read is that it may have had something to do with ash cloud particles in the air that came from Mount Sinabung which erupted in Indonesia a few days earlier and a Volcanic Ash Advisory was issued on March 7th. If an aircraft flies through an ash cloud these particles can create friction on the surface of an aircraft and will make it glow orange and make it appear on fire.
Meanwhile MH370 continued to fly at low altitudes, evading radar, over the Malaysian pennisula near the Thailand border which is a very sparsly populated region with some mountain ranges. The plane was later seen at about 18:30 UTC by a woman (8) in Langkawi, on the west coast of Malaysia. When she looked out her bathroom window she noticed a low flying aircraft between her house and Mount Raya. She said "It’s the only plane I’ve ever seen flying between Mount Raya and the house." report
At 18:40 MH370 was still flying at low altitude near Palau Perak (9) where it was orginally reported by RMAF Chief General Tan Sri Rodzali Daud who stated that the plane was last detected on radar just north of Palau Perak. The plane was flying at about 1000m altitude at this location. Daud later denied this report but I believe his original statement was the truth and he was told to shut up. report
Between 19:20 UTC - 19:42 UTC eye witness Katherine Tee (10) , and a friend on her boat, said they saw a low flying aircraft off the coast of Sumatra "glowing orange" with a trail of smoke following it. At first she thought it was a missile coming at them but as it got closer to her position she saw that it was an aircraft " glowing orange" with smoke trailing it. report Watch Video
Once MH370 was out of radar range from Indonesia it ascended back up to a cruise altitude (FL350) and continued flying for 3 more hours landing at Male Airport (11) at around 22:40 UTC (3:40 AM Local time) under the cover of darkness with the airport controlled by the Maldivian Military and at a time where there were no arrivals or departures at the airport.
(11) Male Airport
Upon landing the plane was unloaded at the north end of the runway where no witnesses would see what was going on. All the passengers, unwanted cargo, and luggage were off-loaded from the plane and then loaded onto a boat while the plane was being refuelled. The plane was on the ground for about an hour and then took off towards Thimarafushi airport to unload the secret military cargo that was on-board MH370.
As MH370 flew south towards Thimarafushi it flew at low altitudes to avoid radar detection from the other airports. At 1:15 UTC (6:15 AM Local time)multiple witness (12) on the island of Kuda Hudvadhoo in the Maldives saw or heard MH370 flying low past their island. One fisherman ( Abdu Rashid) noticed the plane with red stripes on it flying very low and heading past his position towards the south west. He also said he noticed that there was some white smoke coming from the plane and he could see passenger windows on it. report
At approximately 1:25-1:30 UTC 4 witnesses (13) on the island of Gaadhiffushi in the Maldives also witness this low flying plane. One woman said " it looked like a rocket with fins coming at her". Another witness said it had a blue stripe on it and it circled several times near her position. MH370 was getting ready to land at Thimarafushi airport and they needed to burn off as much fuel as possible to make the plane as light as possible before attempting a short runway (~4000ft) landing. report
(14) Thimarafushi Airport
At 1:33UTC MH370, with it's notoriously noisy engines, lands at Thimarfushi airport (14) where a military personel working in conjunction with the hijackers help to unload the secret military cargo and and refuel the plane. Once the plane was refuelled and completely unloaded the pilot/hijacker made this short runway take off and flew this plane back towards the Andaman Sea where he then ditched the plane in the Andaman Sea They wanted to ditch the plane not far from last radar contact so it would just look like a tragic accident. The plane crashed into the Sea while the pilot's buddies came and picked him up by boat. Mission accomplished!
At 6:30 UTC a woman ( Raja Latife Dalelah) (15) travelling on a plane from Jedda in Saudia Arabia to Kuala Lumpur notices an aircraft like object floating the water in the Andaman Sea. Below is a graphic of where her airplane was at this time. report
SATELLITE IMAGERY DATA.
NO.1: These images, taken directly south of Raja's position, show possible aircraft debris floating off the coast of Sumatra on March 16th,2014, 8 days after MH370 disappearanc. It should be noted that currents in this part of the Andaman Sea drift from north to south so it is concievable that after 8 days this debris could have drifted south to this location near Sumatra where aircraft debris was spotted in these satelite images.

NO: 5: Two fisherman see low flying jet: http://www.cnn.com/2014/03/19/world/asia/malaysia-airlines-plane-ground-witnesses/
NO. 10: Sailoress Kate Tee sees low flying jet glowing orange, heading west, and she also sees 2 planes flying in tandem (formation) directly overhead at the same time she sees this low flying jet. About 20 minutes earlier she saw another plane flying into SIO , at high altitude, which seems to match the timing of the Inmarsat data (there was more than one plane involved and the others were military) : http://www.thehuntformh370.info/content/plane-sightings-sightings-kate-tee
NO.12: Multiple witnesses in the Maldives see and hear mystrious low flying jet: http://www.thehuntformh370.info/content/blaines-independent-investigation
NO.14: Article from Florence DeChangy in LeMonde
According to this report by Blaine Alan Gibson there was no flight DQA149 that day based on the official ATC records from the Male airport for March 8th, 2014.https://drive.google.com/open?id=0B35tmLZHg1FESDZaeG4zZ0VYV3c
If there was no flight DQA149 that day then what plane did those villagers see in the Maldives that looked to them like a B777, with red and blue stripes on it, appartently "notoriously noisy", and had landed at Thimarafushi airport at 6:33 AM (1:33 UTC)? MH370?
It should be noted that Thimarafushi airport is on next island to the south west of Gaadhiffushi where those witnesses saw the low flying plane circling appartently getting ready to land.

What this reverse drift study tells me is that it's far more probable that MH370 crashed closer to the Equator near Indonesia than anywhere else in the Indian Ocean. This study convinces me that the eye and ear witness reports are the truth and the Inmarsat data and radar data are just false data that the Malaysian Government gave us. This could mean that the data was either fabricated or created (spoofed) by another aircraft.
This study suggests that based on the location of debris in Africa, and reverse ocean drift modeling, MH370 did not crash anywhere near the 7th arc which makes the Inmarsat data FALSE! If the Inmarsat data is FALSE then it's very likely the RADAR data is also FALSE. The study also seems to explain why no debris was found in Western Australia.

I believe this data (Inmarsat/radar) was spoofed by another B777 aircraft flying under remote control which crashed down here in the SIO just south of the current seabed search area.. If these are debris pieces from an aircraft that crashed down in the SIO it's debris, from this latitude (43S), would never drift towards Africa. All this debris from this latitude (43S) would drift East, into the Antarctica Circumpolar current, nowhere near Africa, but more towards Australia's southern coast and New Zealand, so if these are parts from the plane that transmitted the Inmarsat data then this plane cannot possibly be MH370.
Because this data contains corrupted data in it I believe that this data is authentic, it was transmitted from an aircraft, but I do not believe this aircraft was MH370. If the data was fabricated I would expect this data to be perfect without any corrupted data in it so it is my belief this data was spoofed from another aircraft. The only thing in this data that indicates these signals were from MH370 is this easily spoofed 24-bit hex addressed (35200217) that is known as the AES ID which was contained in each data packet that were sent on these signals. . It is very possible that another aircraft could have been transmitting these signals (from 18:25 onwards) using MH370's ID and Inmarsat would not have known the difference. Inmarsat has also admitted that their network could have been hacked in this way.
I believe the decoy aircraft glided towards the end of flight an additional 50-100nm from the 7th arc. I believe the last two BFO/BTO data (00:19 UTC) are unreliable data and tell us nothing meaningful about the motion of the aircraft at this time. Here's why:
Here is how the trajectory of the decoy flight path fits in with the BTO data. It is essentially the same flight path trajectory as Dr. Bobby Ulich's contrail flight path theory.
I believe MH370 did a nose dive after IGARI and dropped off radar while a few minutes later another aircraft, a decoy, appears on radar and it is this plane which flies at high altitude back towards the Malaysian pennisula ,seen on radar ,transmitting hourly pings using MH370 AES ID, while flying out to the SIO. PERFECT DECEPTION!
Here is an interesting article about John the ATC controller who believed there were TWO airplanes involved. I still don't know the authenticity about this story but nonetheless I found it interesting because it describes my theory perfectly.
So Who did this and Why?
I believe the hijacking of MH370 was a sophisticated multi-Government covert military hijacking involving the use of a second aircraft, a UAV decoy, to create false radar data and false satellite data to mask MH370's actual flight path and confuse and decieve experts. I believe the objective of the mission was to retrieve sensitive stolen military cargo that was on-board that plane. Here is a link to my speculation on this two plane diversion theory.
