Hunt of Flight MH370 Continues for Second Week

hunt for mh37027 March, 2014 – Kathmandu – One of the largest and rarest mystery of this decade, Flight MH370 of Malaysian Airlines which was lost its contact with the air traffic controller short after its first hours of take off from Kualalampur, Malaysia is still in the hunt.

More than 35 countries around the world is involved to search and find the missing jetliner and solved the mystery which almost 3 weeks gone by and no one really can tell to the family of victim what exactly was went wrong.
In the fresh bid to find the debris of flight mh370, An air and sea search for missing Malaysia Airlines flight MH370 has resumed in the southern Indian Ocean, a day after fresh satellite images revealed a possible debris field.

Six military aircraft, five civilian aircraft and five ships are taking part in Thursday’s operations, Australian maritime officials said.

However, they say weather in the search area is expected to deteriorate.

Flight MH370 disappeared on 8 March with 239 people on board.

It had been en route from Kualalumpur to Beijing when it disappeared from air traffic controllers’ screens over the South China Sea.

So far, not a single item of debris linked to the missing plane has been recovered.

Some of the activities in pictures related to flight MH 370.

The Australian Maritime Safety Authority (Amsa), coordinating the search, said that aircraft had spotted three objects on Wednesday but despite several passes had not been able to relocate them.

It said Australian Navy ship HMAS Success remained in the search area about 2,500km (1,500 miles) south-west of Perth and had been joined by four Chinese ships – Xue Long, Kuulunshan, Haikon and Qiandaohu.

On Wednesday, Malaysia’s acting transport minister Hishammuddin Hussein said a French satellite had located some 122 objects that could be from the missing airliner.

The images, taken on 23 March, showed objects up to 23m (75ft) in length, he said.

Analysts say the images are the first to suggest a debris field from the plane, rather than just isolated objects.

Mr Hussein described the new images as the most credible lead so far.

Dr Erik Van Sebille, an oceanographer from the University of New South Wales, told the BBC that if aircraft debris was found, experts could try to work out where the plane had crashed, although it wouldn’t be easy.

“This is home to the strongest current in the world,” he said.
“Every day debris could move by easily 50, 100km… and it’s not only in one direction, it’s actually rather turbulent. This ocean is full of what we call ‘eddies’ and they are essentially mini hurricanes that spread everything out.”

Malaysia said on Monday that fresh analysis of satellite signals showed that the plane had gone down in the southern Indian Ocean, with no survivors.

The reasons why the plane deviated off course and lost contact with air traffic controllers remain a mystery.

Investigators have ruled nothing out including mechanical or electrical failure, hijacking, sabotage or deliberate action by the pilot or co-pilot.

On Wednesday, FBI chief James Comey said that analysis of data from a flight simulator taken from the home of pilot Zaharie Ahmad Shah was nearly finished.

“I have teams working literally round-the-clock,” Mr Comey told members of Congress.

“I expect it to be done fairly shortly – within a day or two.”

In the absence of any debris from the plane, some relatives of the flight’s 153 Chinese passengers have refused the accept the Malaysian account of events and accused officials of withholding information.

On Wednesday, Mr Hussein also expressed exasperation, saying that Chinese families “must also understand that we in Malaysia also lost our loved ones” as did “so many other nations”.

A total of six countries are now involved in the search – Australia, NewZealand, the US, Japan, China and the South Korea.

The vast search area – in one of the world’s remotest regions – has now been split into east and west sections.

Australia’s Bureau of Meteorology warned that conditions in the search area were expected to deteriorate later on Thursday.

“Potentially thunderstorms down there as well as winds picking up, and they could get to gale force conditions,” said bureau spokesman Neil Bennett.

We Pray with almighty for their peaceful rest of departed soul’s and heartfelt condolence to the families and loved ones.
