The Chinese government says three satellite images that were captured at 11 a.m. on Sunday - a day after Malaysia Airlines Flight 370 went missing - may be the crash site of the Boeing 777.
A Malaysian air force official, who is not authorized to speak to the media, said Thursday morning that its aircraft were heading to that area.
The images appear to show three floating objects, measuring between 43 and 79 feet wide and 59 to 72 feet long.
To put that in perspective, the length of a Boeing 777, the model of the missing jet is 209 feet long.
The coordinates of where these images were taken are not far from where the plane made its last known communication.
According to the CNN weather team, based on water currents at that time, it is very possible this is in fact the debris site.
The plane could well have gone down on its original flight path.
But it is hundreds of miles away from where the Malaysian government indicated the plane had last been spotted on radar - after, they said, it made a u-turn.
Tom Haueter, a Former Director of the Office of Aviation Safety for the NTSB told CNN's Erin Burnett that he did not believe the satellite images were that of Flight 370.
"Just by the size, any aircraft structure that size will sink," Haueter said, "70 by 70 feet, 70 by 40 feet - that's too big. It would sink."
