Malaysia Air Update: We’re Still Looking

More than six months after Malaysia Air Flight 370 vanished without explanation over the Indian Ocean, crews are ready to renew the effort to locate the crash site and what remains of the downed plane.

Although the media obsessed over the strange disappearance, actual reports on evidence regarding the plane’s whereabouts were few and far between. Since then, however, crews have been preparing for a new search that will use sonar, video, and fuel sensor technology to explore the remote stretch of the Indian Ocean where authorities suspect the plane went down.

The search for flight MH370 resumes: Ship with specialised sonar equipment begins hunt in area where plane is thought to have crashed

  • Malaysia-contracted GO Phoenix search vessel began new hunt today
  • Will use specialised equipment to scout ocean floor for debris or fuel
  • Search is taking place in an 'arc' 1,100 miles of the west coast of Australia
  • More than 68,000 square miles of area previously analysed and mapped
  • GO Phoneix will be joined by two Dutch search vessels later this month
  • Operation could take more than a year to find the missing Boeing 777

The next phase in the hunt for missing Malaysia Airlines flight MH370 is under way after a ship with specialised sonar equipment began searching in the area where the plane is thought to have crashed.

The Boeing 777 disappeared with 239 people on March 8 after veering dramatically off course between Kuala Lumpur and Beijing. The plane is thought to have been flying on autopilot at the time.

Experts believe the plane crashed about 1,100 miles off the Western Australia coast, which is where the Malaysia-contracted GO Phoenix vessel began hunting for traces of wreckage or jet fuel today.

The GO Phoenix will be joined later this month by two ships sent by Dutch contractor Fugro as part of an operation that could last more than a year.
