Courtney Love Claims She Found the Missing Malaysia Flight

A Facebook post from Love details where she thinks the airplane is.

The world can breathe a sigh of relief now that Courtney Love has found the missing Malaysian Airlines plane.  The famous singer for the band Hole posted messages on Twitter and Facebook where she claimed to have found evidence of where the plane is.

She posted a photo of the ocean and drew on it with red words supposedly pointing to oil and a plane.  Here’s the image:

On Facebook, she wrote: “I’m no expert but up close this does look like a plane and an oil slick.  [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?”  

In an interview with New York Magazine, Love explained, “Yeah I went to the satellite site and just uploaded tons and tons of pictures. I really doubt aliens took it. It's got to be somewhere. I'm a little obsessive."

The mystery of how Malaysian Airlines flight 370 disappeared has confounded government around the world, who are scrambling to find the plane and discover what happened to it.  Maybe Love should start advising them.
