This iReport is part of an assignment:
Malaysia Airlines Flight 370
A Strange Object
So what we see is a debris field, close to where last radar contact from the plane was received. If you look in the bottom left corner you’ll see a shape. We applied some contrast and brightness filters to that shape, and increased and deepened colour saturation. WE DID NOT IN ANY WAY INTERFERE WITH THE IMAGE. You can clearly see what looks like a plane body with windows and half a wing, followed by a debris trail, and further to the right there is something that looks like a ?tail? though we am not sure about that.
We presented this to TOMNOD and they came back with “this is a fishing boat” with an image that looks NOTHING like what we have shown here.
1. Original 128148
2. With autolevel contrast and brightness applied
3. With objects of interest highlighted, and image rotated slightly clockwise
4. With color saturation increased and deepened
