As the almost unprecedented multinational search for the missing Malaysia Airlines jet continues, web sleuths from around the world are putting forward their own theories on what could have happened to Flight MH370.

Search crews from 26 countries are currently scouring land and sea across an area the size of Australia for the airliner, which disappeared on March 8 with 239 people on board en route from Kuala Lumpur to Beijing.

Images have been shared online which netizens claim could show debris from the Boeing 777 in the Strait of Malacca, near to where it was last detected by military radar.

The image was taken from Tomnod, a map search website being used by thousands of people searching for Flight MH370 online, and later posted on reddit.

One person commented: ‘This matches the 777 perfectly in scale. I made a quick animation with an overlay of the 777.’

Another image apparently taken from Tomnod, discovered by a university student in Taiwan, shows a plane flying over a jungle.

Malaysian authorities have not ruled out any possible explanations over the plane’s disappearance, but have said the evidence so far suggests the flight was deliberately turned back across Malaysia to the Strait of Malacca.
