MAP: Here's The Distance Between The New Satellite Images And The Oil Rig Where A Man Says He Saw The Missing Plane

Here’s a map comparing the two points, about 240 miles apart. Since the worker said he said the plane while it was still high above the water, it’s believable that the two points are reconcilable.
