Australia says suspected plane debris may have sunk

 The international team hunting Malaysia Airlines Flight MH370 in the remote southern Indian Ocean failed to turn up anything on Friday, and Australia’s deputy prime minister said the suspected debris may have sunk. Aircraft and ships have also renewed a search in the Andaman Sea between India and Thailand, going over areas that have already

What do we actually know about Malaysia Airlines Flight 370?

Not a lot. And probably less than you think.  The disappearance of Malaysia Airlines Flight 370 is a horrible puzzler. Big jets like the Beijing-bound Boeing 777-200ER that vanished 10 days ago just don’t disappear. And they certainly don’t disappear while cruising over the ocean in fine weather. Yet this one has.

Continuous radar coverage close to the Andaman Islands would have picked up the plane, and India’s navy is confident

Search for Malaysian plane may extend to Indian Ocean: U.S.

 A new search area for Malaysia Airlines Flight 370 may be opened in the Indian Ocean, the White House said, significantly broadening the potential location of the plane, which disappeared nearly a week ago with 239 people on board. Expanding the search area to the Indian Ocean would be consistent with the theory that the

Missing jet may have strayed toward Andaman Sea: Malaysian air force

 Vietnam  – Malaysia’s military has traced what could have been the jetliner missing for almost five days to an area south of the Thai holiday island of Phuket, hundreds of miles from its last known position, the country’s air force chief said on Wednesday. After a series of at times conflicting statements, the latest revelation
