“High degree of confidence” current search area doesn’t contain plane
The most expensive multinational search for a lost aircraft appears to have been hunting in the wrong area.
Experts leading the search for Malaysia Airlines flight MH370 admit that the plane is unlikely to be found in the current search area. They recommend looking further to the north.
Although small pieces of debris have washed up on the coasts of Africa and Indian Ocean islands, no trace of the plane has been found in the search area after more than two years of combing the seabed.
MH370 disappeared in 2014 en route from Kuala Lumpur to Beijing with 239 people on board. Australian officials have said that the search for it will not be extended.
The governments of Australia, Malaysia and China, which are funding the search, say “we will be suspending the search unless credible evidence is available” about the location of the wreckage.
The latest report by the Australian Transport Safety Bureau states that “there is a high degree of confidence that the previously identified underwater area searched to date does not contain the missing aircraft”. Experts say a new area of 25,000 square kilometres to the north now has the highest probability of containing the wreckage.
