THE bodies inside missing Malaysia MH370 aircraft will most likely be perfectly preserved “like a time capsule” when they are found, said an expert to The Daily Star.

The newspaper quoted US oceanographer David Gallo who said that because of the depth, temperature and stillness of the southern Indian Ocean – believed to be where it went down– the passengers’ corpses will not have deteriorated.

The ocean expert believes if MH370 has hit the seabed, all of the bodies will be preserved – offering vital clues as to why the plane went down.

He said: “It can be a very quiet place with very little oxygen.

“At the surface it’s not the same thing, so the deep ocean can be like a time capsule that preserves everything.”

Dr Gallo also believes black box cockpit recorder information will still be able to be retrieved, despite the sheer amount of time it will have spent underwater.
