For a brief moment the team searching for the wreckage of MH370 thought they had made a huge breakthrough, only to discovered the large metal object uncovered at the bottom of the Indian Ocean was a 200-year-old shipwreck.

The Joint Agency Co-ordination Centre (JACC) based in Western Australia located the large metal object, which looked eerily similar to the fuselage of a plane, using an underwater sonar vessel on December 19.

JACC experts were unable to confirm whether the long man-made shape was the Malaysia Airlines Boeing 777 which vanished nearly two years ago, and officials ordered another more detailed search.

Using underwater sonar technology this large metal object was found, but rather than being the lost plane it was determined to be a 200-year-old shipwreck

What would have been an exciting announcement with the original discovery was put on hold while the second search was carried out - and after a closer look it was confirmed the long, twisted shape was that of a shipwreck. 

To have told the world about the initial discovery of the object would have brought false hope to the families of the mainly Chinese passengers who were among the 239 people on board.
