Ten Aircraft and Ten Ships Searching for Missing Flight MH370

The search activities for the missing Malaysia Airlines flight MH370 continue in Southern Indian Ocean.

During the Sunday operations approximately 252,000 square kilometers were covered.

The search included nine aircraft along with eight ships with a merchant ship also transiting through the area.

Like in the previous searches aircraft spotted several objects which cannot be verified or discounted as being from MH370 until they are relocated and recovered by ships.

In today’s search the total of ten aircraft are involved in the search.

A total of 10 ships have also been tasked to assist in today’s search. These include HMAS Success and HMAS Toowoomba, seven Chinese ships and a merchant vessel.

The ADV Ocean Shield fitted with a black box detector and an autonomous underwater vehicle is included in the search operations for the missing aircraft.
