The satellite image appears to show a plane in the skies above a jungle, which is claimed to be the missing Malaysian flight MH370. According to the satellite firm DigitalGlobe which owns Tomnod, computer;s systems were overloaded for some time with over 250 million map views and nearly three million areas 'tagged' by users.
