A former pilot has claimed that he knows the exact location of doomed aircraft MH370.
Byron Bailey, a retired pilot with more than 50 years of experience, said that all of the previous investigators have been searching in the wrong place.
He said that the search should instead be carried out south of the search site, at latitude 39'10 S,88'18E.
Byron also claimed that the plane's pilot Captain Zaharie Ahmed Shah was alive when the plane went down.
The Australian Transport Safety Bureau (ATSB) search was based on the assumption that the plane ended as a ghost flight, or death dive, mean the pilot was dead when the plane ran out of fuel at 40,000ft.

Speaking on the Sky News documentary MH370: The Untold Story, he said there couldn't have been a death dive, and said that Shah would have glided the plane as far as possible.
The Malaysian pilot would then have landed the plane on the water outside the search zone.
"All the evidence points to the fact it was ditched," he said.

"I'm sure the captain was trying to ditch the aircraft in as far south, remote location as possible, and leave as little wreckage as possible that would sink."
Byron said that the previous search got within about 30km of where he claims the wreckage must be.
"If I'm wrong then it probably means the aircraft has been taken by aliens or is sitting in a hangar somewhere in Kazakhstan," he said.

"I'm so sure, I'd bet my house on it. As far as I'm concerned, it's game over, we know where it is, we've always known where it is."
In the documentary, even ATSB officials agreed with Byron's theory.
Originally, search teams believed that a small piece of debris found pointed to a high-speed crash into the water, consistent with controlled ditching.

"I think the evidence is less clear now, given that we have managed to eliminate most of the area associated with that scenario," ATSB's former head Martin Dolan said.
Byron said that millions had been wasted on the search mission.
On the same documentary, Australia's former PM Tony Abbott said MH370's disappearance was "almost certainly" a mass murder-suicide.
