While the disappearance of Malaysia Airlines Flight 370 continues to confound the world despite more than a week of intense search, Courtney Love thinks she might have this conspiracy theory-laden mystery wrapped up.
Using a website that lets you scour satellite images called Tomnod, the Hole singer noticed what appears to be an underwater airplane.
“I’m no expert but up close this does look like a plane and an oil slick,” Love wrote on her Facebook page next to a screenshot of the satellite photo. “And it’s 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?”
While an oceanic oil slick is precisely one of the things search parties are looking for right now, the image is from March 12, so you gotta wonder if an underwater airplane would still be visible from the sky four days after it crashed. That’s a question for an airplane expert, or maybe another grunge icon. Eddie Vedder, what’s your take on the subject?
In all seriousness, the image is intriguing and if Courtney Love has solved the greatest mystery of the 21st century, she’s officially the coolest person alive.
