Search for missing Malaysia Airlines flight MH370 resumes
Canberra: The search and recovery operation for Malaysia Airlines flight MH370 resumed Thursday with six military aircraft, five civil aircraft and five ships in the Australian Search and Rescue Region, the Australian Maritime Safety Authority (AMSA) said.
HMAS Success, the second largest ship of the Royal Australian Navy, remains in the search area about 2,500 km south-west of Perth. It has been joined by four Chinese ships - Xue Long, Kuulunshan, Haikon and Qiandaohu - in the search area.
Two Royal Australian Air Force AP-3C Orions, a Japanese Gulfstream jet, a US Navy P-8 Poseidon and a Japanese P-3 Orion will fly sorties throughout the day.
Five civil aircraft will fly to the search area.
Three objects were spotted Wednesday by two aircraft but were not able to be relocated despite several passes. They were unrelated to the credible satellite imagery provided to AMSA.
Positions in the satellite information released by Malaysia Remote Sensing Agency Wednesday were within Wednesday’s search area.
Malaysia announced Wednesday that 122 objects have been identified in new satellite imagery that might be connected to the ongoing search for Malaysia Airlines flight MH370 now declared “lost”.
Weather in the search area is expected to deteriorate later Thursday.
