The hunt for Malaysia Flight 370 is not over. New objects have been found in a new region of the ocean far to the north of where investigators had been searching for over a week.
Say goodbye to the old fuzzy satellite images. On March 28, Australian authorities say that based on new analysis of satellite data — they’ve located more debris, which could be associated with doomed Malaysia flight 370. A new search area has been targeted 680 miles to the north of where search parties had been looking for the downed aircraft the previous week.
The search for missing Malaysia Airlines Flight 370 has moved again. Australian authorities are abandoning the remote region of Indian Ocean where search crews had spent more than a week looking for the plane, reports CNN.
A New Zealand air force surveillance plane flying over the new search area spotted unidentified objects floating in the water and was returning to its base in Perth, Australia, the Australian Maritime Safety Authority said on Twitter.
If you recall — Malaysian Prime Minister Najib Razak called a press conference on March 24 promising to reveal “new developments” in the disappearance of Malaysia Airlines Flight 370.
And as the heartbroken families of the 239 passengers listened intently, the prime minister announced that new analysis has concluded that the flight flew along the southern corridor, and that it was last detected in the southern Indian Ocean west of Australia.
With this in mind, Razak revealed that authorities have definitively determined that the plane crashed and “ended in the southern Indian Ocean.”
