For 11 days, authorities have been searching for Malaysia Airlines Flight 370, the plane that mysteriously disappeared on Saturday 3/8 en route from Kuala Lumpur to Beijing. Concerned citizens worldwide can use the website Tomnod to search for MH370 from home, and now one Courtney Love Cobain claims she found the plane using images from the site. Early this morning Love tweeted, “I’m no expert but up close this does look like a plane and an oil slick,” along with a link to satellite footage of some waters near Pulau Perek, where the plane was last tracked before its transponder stopped working. In her response to Twitter user @DR24, she sent an annotated image indicating that some white, blurry water in the bottom right corner might be the plane underwater and darker patches of water across the top of the image might be oil in the water. As you can see in the image above, she included visual aids. Here’s her exchange on Twitter:

So, what do you think, people? Is that a plane, or not? (It’s not. I think?) If Courtney Love actually found this plane, that has to go in the first line of her obituary, right?
