The Latest lead to missing Malaysian plane Flight MH370 foiled
Chinese satellite showed a spot that may have been plane debris. However it was not the missing Malaysian jetliner. In the words of Malaysia’s civil aviation chief Azharuddin Abdul Rahman earlier today: “There is nothing. We went there, there is nothing.” Some frustration is noticeable. The latest lead in the five-day hunt came to nothing. Nobody seems to be any the wiser.
Vietnamese officials had previously said the area was “searched thoroughly” in the past few days.
False leads marked the search for the aircraft since it’s disappearance early on Saturday, causing frustration to the searchers and hopelessness to family of the passengers, not to mention confusion.
Authorities still believe it may have turned back, heading into the upper reaches of the Strait of Malacca or further past it.
The spot that Chinese satellite showed the possible debris to be, is quite near the last confirmed position of the plane between Malaysia and Vietnam. The images noticed around 11:00 on Sunday showed 3 floating objects of different sizes in a 20 km radius off the southern tip of Vietnam. The largest was about 24m by 22m. Although authorities said that the area had been searched over and over, Malaysian and Singaporean aircraft are scheduled to visit the area again today. Then they are surely not certain that there is nothing there. China has not yet endorsed a link between the floating objects and the plane.
Malaysia says it is not true!
Malaysia has been criticized for the way they are handling the search, which now covers 92 600 square kilometers and involves 12 nations. Transport Minister Hishamuddin Hussein said today that reports that the jet may have flown for hours after vanishing from radar screens, were not true.
Reportedly US aviation investigators and national security officials believe the plane flew for a total of five hours, based on data sent to the ground from the plane’s engines as part of a standard monitoring program.
The last absolute sighting of the plane on civilian radar screens was shortly before 1:30 am on Saturday.
