    MH370 cockpit and part of fuselage ?

     

    lat:-44.810101, lon:93.147094,

     

    This image from Tomnob shows what appears to be an artificial object in the water. It is being trailed by a light, short wake, or else with a long "tail" slightly submerged.

     

    Given this remote location, it seems unlikely to be a small watercraft. There are several similarly colored objects nearby, and can be observed in the Tomnob map.

     

    The object is far to large to be birds, or a dolphin. The size of the white portion of the object makes it unlikely to be a pod of them. The colors are dissimilar from Orca whales.

     

    The white object has two gray quasi-rectangular shaped objects, which are not unlike those of an aircraft in the water. (See photo of the "miracle on Hudson" aircarft's cockpit, superimposed on the graphic image for comparison)

     

    The long "tail" is NOT a wake of any kind, but rather some more or less rigid appendage to the larger white object.

     

    At the "front" of the cockpit is a "bow wave" we might expect to see from a object which is being "pushed" through the water by a tail-wind.

     

    It's unquestionably artificial. It exhibits too much symmetry to be trash.


    It's in the search zone of a couple days earlier, before the search was moved north.

     

    It seems unlikely this debris can be carried far enough north by currents to appear in the new search zone.

     

    If the aircraft pancaked or landed tail-section first, it is entirely possible the cockpit did not experience impact compression.

     

    Can someone either explain this object, or kindly refer it to search officials?
