Six Countries Continue Search for the MH370

The search for any signs of the missing Malaysia Airlines aircraft in the Australian Search and Rescue Region continues with six countries taking part in the search and recovery operations.

The six countries are – Australia, New Zealand, the United States, Japan, China and the Republic of Korea. The search is now split into three areas within the same proximity covering a cumulative 80,000 square kilometres.

Weather conditions have improved in the area and HM AS Success is now on its way back to the search area. On its arrival, HMAS Success will conduct a surface sweep of an area identified on Monday afternoon by a RAAF P3 Orion as the location for several objects of interest.

China’s polar supply ship Xue Long is expected to arrive in the search area later this morning. AMSA has tasked a total of 12 aircraft today to search for possible objects in the search area. Five civil aircraft will be involved in search activities today and will have AeroRescue Aviation Mission Coordinators on board.

A total of 34 State Emergency Service (SES) volunteers from Western Australia will again be air observers on board the civil aircraft. A total of seven military aircraft will join search operations today.
