All 239 passengers and crew vanished, leaving the world perplexed, but now British aerospace engineer Richard Godfrey believes robotic scanners will find the wreckage

An MH370 expert has claimed he knows the exact location of the plane that disappeared on March 8, 2014 while flying from Kuala Lumpur in Malaysia to Bejing in China.

All 239 passengers and crew vanished, leaving the world perplexed, but now British aerospace engineer Richard Godfrey believes robotic scanners will be able to pinpoint the wreckage as early as next year.

Marine robotics company Ocean Infinity announced at the 8th anniversary of the disappearance that they'll start a fresh search early 2023, in conjunction with Mr Godfrey.

The expert has pinpointed the crash site to 33.177°S 95.300°E and told The Sun he has narrowed the search area down to just 115 square miles.

Ocean Infinity will use newly built "cutting-edge" autonomous robotic vessels to scour the area that covers 88 nautical miles wide by 183 nautical miles long.

The same company searched the area to no avail back in 2018, but is is hoped that the new technology will lead to a discovery of the Boeing 777.

Mr Godfrey thinks the wreckage may have been hidden beneath sediment that covered the craft after being moved around by volcanic activity underwater.

Speaking exclusively to the Sun, Richard said: "Ocean Infinity has come up with new technology which is always a significant advance.

"It's a much smaller area, it allows them to be more efficient, it allows them to go over and back as many times as they want.

"It still should only take a matter of a few weeks, there is a general feeling if we do go back out for another search it will be the last one."

Richard says the CEO of Ocean Infinity will now meet with the Malaysian Minister for Transport and offer a "no find, no fee" deal.

If found, the price for salvaging the plane on the country's behalf will be $70million (£57.26million), according to Mr Godfrey.

But, interestingly, Mr Godrey thinks that there are some who may not want the plane to be found.

He said: "I get the impression that there are some people who do not want MH370 found, there could be something about the flight, perhaps something in the cargo, that could still be in the wreckage that they don’t want to be found."
