TWO objects possibly related to the search for a missing Malaysia Airlines plane have been identified, Prime Minister Tony Abbott says.
Mr Abbott told parliament "new and credible information" had come to light in the search for MH370.
"The Australian Maritime Safety Authority has received information based on satellite information of objects possibly related to the search," he said before question time.
"Following specialist analysis of this satellite imagery, two possible objects related to the search have been identified."
The prime minister said an Australian airforce Orion had been diverted to locate the objects and is expected to arrive in the area shortly.
"Three more aircraft will follow," he said. "They are tasked for (a) more intensive follow up search."
Mr Abbott said he has informed Malaysian Prime Minister Najib Razak of the developments.
But he warned against drawing any premature conclusions or hopes on the search.
"We must keep in mind the task of locating these objects will be extremely difficult and it may turn out that they are not related to the search for flight MH370," Mr Abbott said.
AMSA is due to reveal more details at 3.30pm AEDT.
Where can we call if we have a possible sighting regarding Flt 370? I posted here about coordinates I found a few days ago and tonight I just found what appears to be a debris field nearby those coordinates. I have recorded the coordinates for various debris sightings, as well.I have called my local station here on Long Island ( NY), tried CNN tips line but all they do is put me through to 'comment' line......I am trying desperately to relay this information. The image I had on my satellite pic from Monday, shows a very large plane with the correct shape of the 777 ans flying extremely low. I can zoom in enough to see the metal on the engines but not the name on the plane. I assume the image was taken shortly before the possible crash. I have been trying to get this info to someone for 5 days now.
If anyone knows who to call, please help.
My grandpa was a pilot, my exs dad is a pilot, from what they said debris of all sorts of varieties can float for days, possibly weeks. Think really hard? Some items do not sink, at all.
It's been such a long time since this aircraft went missing...
My biggest question is if indeed the plane has crashed in the water (due to hijacking, malfunction, or any other cause), would the debris still be afloat?
Also, does anyone have any information on past crashes in the water, and a time frame of how long the debris stayed floating?
Probably unimportant information, but I can't help but wonder.....edit on 3/19/2014 by ChaosComplex because: (no reason given)
