The passenger airliner carrying 239 people disappeared without a trace four years ago and two huge international investigations have failed to recover it. Mr Boyer claims he has found satellite images that show the wreckage of MH370 after it crash-landed. He believes he can identify different parts of the broken plane in images found on Google Maps and Apple Maps.
However, official investigations concluded that the jet most likely landed in the Indian Ocean.
This week, relatives of the people on the plane presented to the Malaysian government new debris found believed to belong to MH370.
Despite this, Mr Boyer maintains he has found the crash site.
He claimed he has spotted the engine based on comparing its known size with the distances on the image provided by Google Maps.
Mr Boyer believes this image shows MH370’s engine
He said: “These images are measurements of what looks to be the turbine engine of MH370.
“The Trent 800 engine used has specs of 4.37 by 2.79m.
“I measured the piece and they match exactly.”
The part-time ‘plane-hunter’ also believes he can see the fuselage and nose of the plane in his pictures.

PUTRAJAYA, Malaysia: Relatives of those on board Malaysia Airlines flight MH370 on Friday (Nov 30) handed over new-found debris believed to be from the ill-fated plane, hoping it could help shed light on the jet’s mysterious disappearance four years ago.
The Boeing 777 jet with 239 people on board vanished on Mar 8, 2014 during a routine flight from Kuala Lumpur in the world’s greatest aviation mystery.
An official report released in July following a lengthy investigation and years of fruitless searching gave no new clues about why the plane disappeared, sparking anger among relatives.
VR Nathan, whose wife Anne Daisy was on the ill-fated jet, told AFP the debris consisted of five small plane parts found off Madagascar.
They were turned over to Malaysian Transport Minister Anthony Loke on Friday at his office in the administrative capital Putrajaya outside Kuala Lumpur.
