The search area for the missing Malaysian jet has proved too deep for a robotic submarine which was hauled back to the surface of the Indian Ocean less than half way through its first seabed hunt for wreckage and the all-important black boxes, authorities said on Tuesday.
‘We Haven’t Had A Single Detection In 6 Days’: Search Crews Sending Robotic Sub For Missing Malaysian Airlines Jet
Search crews will send a robotic submarine deep into the Indian Ocean on Monday for the first time to try to determine whether underwater signals detected by sound-locating equipment are from the missing Malaysian plane’s black boxes, the leader of the search effort said.
Authorities are confident that a series of underwater signals detected in a remote patch of the Indian Ocean are coming from the missing Malaysia Airlines plane’s “black boxes,” Australia’s prime minister said Friday.
An Australian aircraft hunting for the missing Malaysian jet picked up a new possible underwater signal on Thursday in the same area search crews detected sounds earlier in the week that were consistent with an aircraft’s black boxes.
A ship searching for the missing Malaysian Airlines jet has detected two more underwater signals that may be emanating from the aircraft’s black boxes, and the Australian official in charge of the search expressed hope Wednesday that the plane’s wreckage will soon be found.
Search Crews Fail To Relocate Faint Sounds Heard In Indian Ocean In Hunt For Missing Malaysian Airlines Flight
Search crews hunting for the missing Malaysia Airlines jet have failed to relocate faint sounds heard deep below the southern Indian Ocean that officials said were consistent with a plane’s black boxes, the head of the search operation said Tuesday.
China’s news agency says ship heard pulse signal at same frequency as an aircraft black box.
Crews searching for the missing Malaysia Airlines jet launched a targeted underwater hunt on Friday for the plane’s black boxes along a stretch of remote ocean, with just days left before the devices’ batteries are expected to run out.
A police investigation may never determine the reason why the Malaysia Airlines jetliner disappeared, and search planes scouring the India Ocean for any sign of its wreckage aren’t certain to find anything either, officials said Wednesday.
The Malaysian government said late Monday that the final words received by ground controllers from the missing Malaysia Airlines Boeing 777 on March 8 were “Good night Malaysian three-seven-zero,” not the previously stated and slightly unusual, “all right, good night.”
