The Australian government released pictures taken by satellite on March 16 of possible plane debris seen around 2,500km (1,500miles) southwest of Perth.
Mr Fergus, who was Director of Intelligence for Sydney’s 2000 Olympics, told Australia’s Channel 9 that a catastrophic malfunction on MH370 would mean the plane couldn’t have flown all the way to where the debris has been spotted.
