When you find not what you were looking for

In 2014, the Malaysian Boeing 777 disappeared during the MH-370 flight . Long-term searches of the liner continue, and have not been crowned with success. But instead of him in the process of searching recently found two ships missing in the 19th century.

One of them, an iron one (pictured), presumably is the “West Ridge”, sailed in 1883 from London to Mumbai. The second, wooden, is either “W. Gordon”, which sailed in 1876 from South Africa, or “Mandala”, which sailed away in 1882 from Wales. The high degree of decomposition of the wooden ship does not yet allow it to be accurately determined.

On board both ships are allegedly the remains of crews from 15 to 30 people.

Maybe MH 370 similarly found in some 23 century, while searching for a shipwrecked ship?
