AN MH370 sleuth claims he is teaming up with an elite squad of jungle troops in a bid to track down the wreckage of the doomed flight.
Brit Ian Wilson will reportedly join forces with Cambodian soldiers on a mission through mountains to the north west of Phnom Penh.
Wilson, from Camden, London, says his brother Jackie will join him on the adventure to find the missing Boeing 777-200 he believes he has located on Google Maps.
He told Daily Star Online: “I’m excited. A real worry was not having anyone skilled taking us in, and going in on our own.
“But I’ll leave it to the experts. They seem really helpful at the moment. I think we’ll get as close as we can before we start climbing.”
He is set to fly out from London’s Heathrow Airport on Tuesday in an ambitious attempt to solve an aviation mystery which has spawned dozens of conspiracy theories.
Yesterday it was reported how a second “crash site” has also been spotted in Cambodia by fellow part-time plane-hunter Daniel Boyer.
He claims he can make out the missing Malaysia Airlines plane’s cockpit and tail in the grainy pics.
The photos show several white objects lying on the forest floor north-west of the Cambodian capital.
Boyer told the Daily Star one piece measures 17.8ft – close to the 19ft 3in of a Boeing 777 cockpit, leaving him “convinced” this was the front of the plane.
And he insisted he can see the red outline of Malaysia Airlines’ logo on another piece, which he said must be the tail.
The piece apparently measures 31.7ft – whereas a tail piece normally measures 30ft.
Mr Boyer told the website: “I couldn’t believe it when I made the sighting.
“First the cockpit can be seen, and now this. The debris definitely needs to be investigated.”
The first images of the jet, which vanished on March 8, 2014, were found after video producer Wilson spent “hours” searching online.
Images from Google Maps showed the outline of a large plane in a remote part of southern Cambodia – which could simply be an aircraft flying directly below the satellite which photographed it.
But Google Earth’s copyright date and imagery date for the picture have been listed as different years in recent weeks, reports The Daily Star.
This has led to speculation the supposed wreckage has been snapped several times in the past by the tech giant’s satellites – ruling out the theory that Wilson’s picture shows a plane in flight.
While the current imagery date is listed as March 2017, last week it was reportedly published as December 2015.
