AN engineer whose wife and two children vanished on MH370 said a spy told him the United States know the exact location of the doomed jet.
Ghyslain Wattrelos said an intelligence officer called "Mr B" approached him and told him "the Americans know full well what happened".
The business executive lost his wife Laurence, 51, son Hadrien, 17, and 13-year-old daughter Ambre when the plane vanished on March 8, 2014.
The Boeing 777 aircraft was on route from Kuala Lumpur to Beijing with 239 passengers and crew on board when contact was lost and is disappearance remains the greatest unsolved aviation mystery.
Ghyslain had flown from Paris to Beijing to meet his family.
But instead of reuniting with his wife and kids, he was met by French diplomats when he stepped off the plane, who told him MH370 was missing.

In the agonising months that followed with no clear answers, the dad claimed he was "fed nonsense" about what happened to the plane.
Ghyslain said he "cannot accept" the plane disappeared and is working "every day, every week" in a bid to get answers for his surviving son, Alex.
Speaking on a new Netflix series on the disappearance of the flight, Ghyslain said he was approached by someone in the intelligence community in the first year of the investigation who called himself "Mr B".
He said: "Someone I knew told me, 'Mr B would like to meet you. This person has information. He's someone who is very connected, connected to the secret services'.

"The first thing he told me was, 'the Americans know full well what happened, because there were two American AWACS that were monitoring the area at the time the plane disappeared'.
"These AWACS are Boeing planes with a huge radar like a mushroom on top. And this radar basically monitors everything underneath the Boeing.
"It's like a small satellite above the earth that sees everything that's happening in a 600km radius.
"Mr B said these two planes must have perfectly tracked the MH370, regardless of its state at any moment.
"They know where it crashed. They know where it is."
He added: "Why believe the official story when they're withholding essential pieces of evidence?"
An AWAC – used by the US Air Force and NATO – is an airborne radar system designed to detect aircraft, ships and missiles.
They are also used for surveillance.
Investigative journalist Florence de Changy said a US Air Force source told her the stealthy jets have "phenomenal jamming capabilities".
And like Ghyslain, she believes the official version of events is shrouded in deceit.
According to her theory, the jets intercepted MH370 after the US found out the flight was "carrying problematic cargo to China" – such as stolen technology.
Florence theorises that the US then did their "utmost to stop the cargo from arriving to its destination".
Why believe the official story when they're withholding essential pieces of evidence?
"I realised the AWACS had this capability to completely jam the communication system of MH370, making it disappear from the screens of the traffic controllers," Florence explained.
"Now I finally had a technical explanation to how and why MH370 suddenly disappeared and I tried to pull all this together in some kind of hypothetical scenario.
"On that night, this very mysterious and very suspicious cargo, without having been scanned, and which has been delivered under escort, is loaded on MH370."
Florence said it's "possible" the two jets moved into action while MH370 was in "no man's land" between two airspaces shortly after 1am on the fateful night.
Speaking on the docuseries, she explained the jets could have made MH370 disappear from the radar – or ordered Captain Zaharie to land.
But she believes Zaharie might have ignored the order to land – and jets were scrambled by the AWACS to take out the plane.
"When Captain Zaharie receives the order, it's possible he says 'no'. He does not accept this order," Florence said.
"I think he just continued on his planned route, going to Beijing. The tension would have continued to increase as Zaharie refused the orders.
"Eventually MH370 is getting close to Chinese airspace so the AWACS have to back off.
"And, as horrible as it may seem, they still need to stop the plane and its precious cargo from arriving in Beijing.
"So, either through a missile strike or a mid-air collision, MH370 met its fate.
"It has still some loose ends, but I believe I'm certainly much close to the truth than the official narrative."
Ghyslain said he found it difficult receiving information that the Americans were allegedly involved.
He decided to quit his job as an engineer to investigate the baffling disappearance of MH370 full-time.
And two years after the flight vanished, it emerged that the captain – Zaharie Amhad Shash – had rehearsed the plane’s fatal flight on simulator at home.
But Ghyslain said the FBI had been given the flight simulator data at the time of the plane's disappearance and never raised the alarm – raising his suspicions.
“People need to understand the FBI had this information before anyone else… the FBI was up to something," he said.
"For me, once again, it's more proof the Americans are involved.
"The FBI never handed anything to the official inquiry. Not even one report. So we'd like to know what they did.
"I believe Malaysia was 'The Stooge' in the story. They were updated, kept quiet somehow.
"So it's the Americans leading the investigation from the outset.
"It's the British who are locating the plane, with Inmarsat. And it's the Australians leading the search. Everybody is locked out."
Ghyslain previously claimed the Malaysia Airlines flight was brought down in order to kill someone on board.
He told the Mirror: "Somebody has decided to kill my family, maybe it’s for a good reason. Is it to avoid another 9/11?
"It’s a dirty, dirty case. There is a cover-up. The plane was shot down.
"There was something and someone on this plane that should not arrive in Beijing, but I don’t know why yet."
A wide variety of explanations have been put forward for the disappearance of MH370 – including that it was mass murder-suicide by Captain Zaharie.
Expert Richard Godfrey claims the pilot flew the jet in circles to possibly check he wasn’t being followed – then landed the Boeing 777 at high speed in a bid to ensure it was lost forever.
Former French Air Force air traffic controller, Gilles Diharce, believes the pilot attempted a "soft ditching" – a controlled emergency landing – during the flight's final descent into the ocean.
Other theories suggest the plane was hijacked, shot down by the US Air Force or the plane was in "cruising mode" when it crashed.
Nineteen pieces of the MH370 wreckage have been recovered so far and handed in to the authorities.
