Help find Malaysian Airlines 370!

An unprecedented request, how you can volunteer and help find Malaysia Airlines 370.

DigitalGlobe, https://www.digitalglobe.com/

An advance commercial satellite imagery network is asking the whole internet public to scour their recent map data. 'Crowdsourcing' into action!
They have available 1,235 square miles of high resolution maps and more maps updated everyday. Hopefully thousands, even hundreds of thousands of volunteers could bring their eyes on these maps and share their findings.
You might find that 'needle in the haystack' to identify life rafts, debris, oil slick or even the wreckage at a remote location.
DigitalGlobe was instrumental in the aftermath of the Philippine typhoon Haiyan, tagging points of interests and for rescues. The were crucial to pinpoint locations for emergency responders and crucial aid.

Discoveries could be shared at CNN iReport page;

If they shut everything off as far as electronic location then that plane may not have crashed. Maybe some kind of pirate action like the Somalis do with shipping. They also dropped to very low altitude to avoid radar. It could be sitting at some airport highly camouflaged. A lot of money could be extorted.

...something's very mistrustful about the latest 'official' announcements, now they say that the flight may have diverted westward over the Malaysian peninsula and are now looking at the Strait of Malacca and maybe even into the Indonesian island of Sumatra.

Well, the copilot wasn't too worried about cockpit security (and he stole my patented palm reading technique, that basterd!). Transponder off, dived below radar, thing was jacked.

Playboy pilot at controls of MH370 had a track record of inviting pretty passengers into his cockpit where he smoked and posed for snaps | News.com.au

Nefarious voice..."we'll send our blonde brigade first to distract the crew and the rest of our soldiers commandeer the plane, dive below radar and land at our remote strip..."

Using Google Earth, can't access those coordinates in DigitalGlobe.
