Updated: No sign of plane in ocean search

29 May 2014 10:19:38 timesofmalta.com

Investigators with an Australian agency have concluded that the missing Malaysian jet is not within an area thought to be its most likely resting place after an unmanned submersible found no sign of the plane. The Joint Agency Coordination Centre said today the US Navy's Bluefin 21 had finished its final underwater mission in the southern Indian Ocean yesterday after scouring 330 square miles. The agency said that an expanded search of 21,600 square miles, based on satellite analysis of the plane's most likely route, would probably begin in August after commercial side-scan sonar operators are contracted. The plane carrying 239 people vanished on March 8 on a flight from Kuala Lumpur to Beijing. The area can now be discounted as the final resting place of the missing plane, the centre said in a statement. The underwater search for the airliner, which vanished March 8 with 239 people on board en route from Kuala Lumpur to Beijing, will be suspended for a couple of months while more powerful sonar equipment is brought in to search a much wider area based on analysis of satellite data of the plane's most likely course. That analysis has led authorities to believe that Malaysia...

Updated - Missing jet: Chinese ship detects pulse signal in Indian Ocean

05 April 2014 16:02:57 timesofmalta.com

A Chinese patrol ship hunting for a missing Malaysia Airlines jetliner detected a pulse signal in the south Indian Ocean this afternoon, the state news agency Xinhua reported, in a possible indicator of the underwater beacon from a plane's "black box". A black box detector deployed by the vessel Haixun 01 picked up the "ping" signal at around 25 degrees south latitude and 101 degrees east longitude, according to Xinhua. It has not been established whether the ping is related to Flight MH370, which went missing four weeks ago with 239 people aboard shortly after taking off from Kuala Lumpur for Beijing. Xinhua further said a Chinese air force plane spotted a number of white floating objects in the search area. Australian search authorities also said they had yet to verify whether the pulse signal was related to MH370. Malaysia said earlier today it had begun a formal investigation into the jet's March 8 disappearance that would comprise experts from around the world, while the huge hunt for the Boeing 777 airliner intensified in the Indian Ocean. Normally, a formal air safety investigation is not launched until wreckage is found. But there have been concerns that Malaysia's...
