Australia Narrows MH370 Pinger Location to ˜Some’ Kilometers

Australian Prime Minister Tony Abbott said he’s confident crews hunting for the missing Malaysian jet have narrowed down the location of its black box to “within some kilometers,” raising optimism the wreckage will be found. “We are confident that we know the position of the black box flight recorder to within some kilometers,” Abbott said

Jet Hunters Map Pings to Plot Sub Zone as Batteries Fade

 A fifth possible signal from the missing Malaysian Air (MAS) jet gave investigators another critical data point to plot the launch of a remote-controlled submarine to scour the Indian Ocean seabed. The transmission heard by an air-dropped buoy equipped with sensors was “in the vicinity” of where the Australian navy vessel Ocean Shield detected acoustic

Jet Searchers Map Pings to Narrow Drop Zone for Robot Sub

 A fifth possible signal from the missing Malaysian Air (MAS) jet gives investigators another critical data point to plot where and when to launch a remote-controlled submarine to scour the Indian Ocean seabed. The transmission heard by a sensor-equipped buoy dropped by plane was “in the vicinity” of where the Australian navy vessel Ocean Shield

Jet-Wreckage Find Seen Possible in Days as Pings Tracked

 Investigators are optimistic that they can soon locate wreckage from the missing Malaysian Air (MAS) jet in the Indian Ocean after reacquiring acoustic pings that may emanate from the flight recorders. Australian search vessel Ocean Shield detected a signal two more times, a possible step toward narrowing the hunt enough to deploy a robot submarine

Search for Flight Mh370: Pings Heard Again in Malaysia Jet Hunt, Stoke Optimism

 Investigators are optimistic that they can soon locate wreckage from the missing Malaysian Air jet in the Indian Ocean after reacquiring acoustic pings that may emanate from the flight recorders. Australian search vessel Ocean Shield detected a signal two more times, a possible step toward narrowing the hunt enough to deploy a robot submarine that

MH370 Pinger: Australian Ship Reacquires Signals in Plane Search

 An Australian ship reacquired signals during a search for the missing Malaysian plane while an analysis of previous pings confirmed the sounds were consistent with those emitted by black boxes. The Ocean Shield, pulling a U.S. Navy towed pinger locator, detected a signal for five minutes and 32 seconds yesterday afternoon and later in the

MH370 Plane Hunt Fails to Replicate Signal as Search Narrows

 Ships combing the Indian Ocean for a missing Malaysian Air jet failed to detect new pings that might point the way to the aircraft’s flight recorders, as investigators reduced the search area by almost two-thirds. The Ocean Shield, which picked up signals at the weekend as it towed a U.S. Navy pinger locator, heard no

Subsea Pings Raise Hopes in Search for Missing Jetliner

An Australian ship hunting for the missing Malaysian Air plane heard signals consistent with those from an aircraft’s black boxes, the biggest breakthrough in a mystery that began a month ago. The pings raised investigators’ hopes for narrowing their focus enough to deploy a sonar-equipped robot submarine to scan the Indian Ocean floor for wreckage.

MH370 Search: Haixun 01 records signal with same frequency as that of black box ping

 A Chinese search ship has detected an electronic pulse in an area of the southern Indian Ocean where it is believed the missing Malaysian Airlines plane crashed, state media has announced. “Chinese patrol ship Haixun 01 searching for flight MH370 discovered a pulse signal with a frequency of 37.5kHz per second in south Indian Ocean
