Malaysia Airlines Flight MH370

Sailor claims seeing plane on fire

3 Jun, 2014

A woman who was sailing with her husband across the Indian ocean from India to Thailand claims she saw Malaysia Flight 370 approximately three months after it went missing.

I was on a night watch. My husband was asleep below deck and our one other crew member was asleep on deck. I saw something that looked like a plane on fire. That’s what I thought it was. Then, I thought I must be mad… It caught my attention because I had never seen a plane with orange lights before, so I wondered what they were.I could see the outline of the plane, it looked longer than planes usually do. There was what appeared to be black smoke streaming from behind it. I looked back through our GPS logs and lo and behold, what we saw was consistent with the confirmed contact which the authorities had from MH370.
