Still no Sign of the Missing Flight MH370

Due to the bad weather conditions, yesterday’s search in the Southern Indian Ocean for the missing flight MH370 gave little results. With the forecast for today slightly better, hopes are high for finding the possible debris of the Boeing 777.

Australian Maritime Safety Authority (AMSA) once again dispatched four aircraft to search a 23,000 kilometre area, about 2500 kilometres south-west of Perth. Also, the U.S. Navy P8 Poseidon plane is taking part in the search as well.

With the Hoegh St. Petersburg, a Norwegian car carrier that was the first ship to arrive on the scene yesterday, a total of six merchant ships are assisting in the search.

The Royal Australian Navy’s HMAS Success is en route to the search area.

The current search area has been identified based on satellite data imagery from the Australian Geospatial – Intelligence Organisation (AGO) provided to AMSA on Thursday morning. Analysis of the imagery by AGO identified two objects possibly related to the missing aircraft.
