# How to refute this geometrical method to find MH370? [closed]

A geometrical method to find MH370 has been published on the Net (see images below).

I am sure it is wrong (because if it were that easy, thousands of people would have had this idea back in 2014). However, it has attracted some attention.

My question is:
How can this method be proven wrong in a simple, straight-forward way ?

Here is the method:

source: This method was first presented here.

EDIT:
How is this question off-topic while How can a computer model yield two possible flight paths of MH370 in South Indian Ocean? is on-topic? Isn't this having it both ways?

• The final ping is not at the crash site. The Pings were done at an interval of once an hour. So after the final ping, the plane may have crashed immediately, or may have flown for almost another hour before crashing. That time-window alone creates huge uncertainty. Nov 26, 2018 at 20:44
• An 84km "margin of error" is more than 22,000 square kilometers, roughly the size of the country of Belize. Expand that based on up to an additional hour of travel (in any direction, planes can turn quickly) and you are looking at potential search areas in the millions of square kilometers.

• What sort of refutation are you looking for? If I said that I found MH370 and buried it in my back yard, what would you consider to be a refutation of that? Nov 26, 2018 at 23:06
• <How is this question off-topic while How can a computer model yield two possible flight paths of MH370 in South Indian Ocean? is on-topic? You can't have it both ways.> Yes, we can. The question you link asks to explain the methods used by an official investigation. Official investigations are on topic here. You ask us to "(dis)prove" some sort of badly defined/justified method a random person on the internet came up with. We are not here for that. Nov 27, 2018 at 12:13
• If I say that MH370 can be found by "zoogblat infrkwt hrrtyyflppq" can you please disprove that theory? I don't understand it but I've told you the method. If you can disprove that, then I will work on disproving your theory. Nov 28, 2018 at 1:56
