‘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.
Optimism is fading after a week of underwater pings that may have been the black boxes of Malaysian Airlines flight 370.
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.
