Courtney Love found the plane? Out of all of the daily twists and turns that have investigators yet befuddled over the fate of missing Malaysian Flight 370, this tip from burned out rocker Courtney Love may be a little low on the joint task group’s follow up list.
According to MSN’s WonderWall on March 18, “If Hole doesn't work out, Courtney Love might have a future in super sleuthing: On Monday, she claimed to have found lost Malaysian Airlines flight MH370.”
Said Love on Facebook:
I'm no expert but up close this does look like a plane and an oil slick.… prayers go out to the families #MH370 and its like a mile away Pulau Perak, where they "last" tracked it 5°39'08.5"N 98°50'38.0"E but what do I know? – Courtney Love
Along with Love’s detective work, she posted the picture on Facebook, seen above, pointing out what she believes to be oil slicks and a part of the missing plane. Turned out Courtney was wrong, but kudos for her for joining the online search party.
Love has joined millions of others in the search for Malaysia Airlines flight 370, missing since March 8. Crowdsourcing locator website Tomnod offers users the chance to search countless hours of satellite imagery and pin locations they believe may show signs of the wreckage.
"Sometimes our eyes see what we want them to see," Tomnod officials said in response to multiple false alarms, according to the Wall Street Journal.
Love addressed her enthusiasm over the search in an interview with the Daily Intelligencer.
“Yeah, I went to the satellite site and just uploaded tons and tons of pictures,” she said. “I really doubt aliens took it. It's got to be somewhere. I'm a little obsessive… I mean I don't know anything about aviation per se.”
Love explained her findings:
“I figured a plane would still be leaking some fuel so I searched for signs of an oil slick,” the Hole frontwoman said. “I found one and there appeared to be an object nearby. I don't know if it is the plane or not, but I figured I'd do my part and bring some awareness to the site, for the sake of all the families involved.”
