(CNN) – Newly released Chinese satellite images may show the crash site of missing Malaysia Airlines Flight 370. Images of three floating objects were sighted and captured on Sunday, March 9, the day after the plane vanished, a Chinese agency said Wednesday.
This is not just the number one lead, "it's the only lead. The only credible lead," said aviation consultant and former Federal Aviation Administration chief of staff Michael Goldfarb.
The Chinese agency gave coordinates of 105.63 east longitude, 6.7 north latitude, which would put it in waters northeast of where it took off in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, and south of Vietnam.
That location "makes sense," Goldfarb says.
"It does nothing to explain cause, it does nothing to explain any of that. It simply implies that that was the flight path from Kuala Lumpur," said Goldfarb.
