Despite the magnitude of his discovery, Olver was in disbelief when he reported the plane's wing to the authorities. At the time, his claims were dismissed, and no comprehensive research was conducted.

Upon identifying the object as a commercial aircraft wing, Olver made the decision to return it to the water. This moment was also remembered by George Currie, another crew member, who described the difficulties they had in handling the wing due to its size and weight.
