Missing MH370 latest:

Diego Garcia and MH370 conspiracy of a 'lost' island in middle of it all.


With the batteries on the black boxes of missing Malaysia Airline flight MH370 set to run down, news that a signal detected by a Chinese ship searching the Indian Ocean for flight is "consistent" with the type emitted from the aircraft black box, is being met with hope, bitter relief and skepticism.

Hope for the many nations, not least Malaysia, seeking an answer as to what happened to the ill-fated airline.

Bitter relief for the families of the passengers on board as they can finally know and accept the fate of what has happened to their loved ones.

And skepticism, by the conspiracy theorists – who find it all to convenient that a ‘ping’ is located one day before the black-box ‘deadline’.



It involved a small atoll in the Indian Ocean that is a military island, controlled and operated by the US and the UK.

According to the report, the conspiracy theory now gaining traction on the internet comes from freelance journalist Jim Stone and concerns the atoll of Diego Garcia.

According to Stone’s theory, an American passenger on board MH370, named as Philip Wood, sent out an image and voice activated text, along with GPS coordinates that trace to a location a few kilometres away from Diego Garcia.
