Courtney Love Explains Illustration of Missing Malaysian Airlines Flight: ‘I’m a Little Obsessive’
A few days ago, Courtney Love posted a photo on her social media outlets believing she had possibly found missing Malaysia Airlines Flight 370, using a very crude diagram (see below) to prove her point. The Internet world immediately took this ball and ran with it, discussing Love's post in humorous fashion. Adding to her original post, Love has since elaborated on how she came up with her hypothesis.
As of this posting, Flight 370 has been missing for 11 days. Mystery is increasing with every passing day, but a service called Tomnod is inviting people to help find the plane using satellite imagery.
"Yeah I went to the satellite site and just uploaded tons and tons of pictures," Love tells New York Magazine, confirming that she found the area herself. "I really doubt aliens took it. It's got to be somewhere. I'm a little obsessive."
However, in an update from Tomnod, it seems that the area Courtney Love scouted had already been ruled out. "Although it is still an interesting clue, it is looking much more like the other boats operating in the region," Tomnod said. "Keep up the good work."
Love, meanwhile, adds, "I mean I don't know anything about aviation per se. I saw an article asked people to help search on Tomnod.com so I decided to give it a shot. I figured a plane would still be leaking some fuel so I searched for signs of an oil slick. I found one and there appeared to be an object nearby. I don't know if it is the plane or not, but I figured I'd do my part and bring some awareness to the site, for the sake of all the families involved."
She concludes, "I hope they find the plane, I pray they're still alive, it's sad and my heart goes out to all those involved," she said. "It's the least I can do."
