MH370: No result of search ops in spotted areas


Malaysian Airline
Sydney, March 21: Australia had sent four planes on Friday over the remote area spotted by the satellite for possible debris of MH 370, but to no use. The first plane that was sent came back empty handed even when the rest three were searching the area for possible breakthroughs.

A search operation was already conducted on Thursday, but as it was cloudy and the weather unfavourable, nothing could be figured out.

The Royal Australian Air Force P3 Orion plane is now flying back to Australia, while two more Orions and a Bombardier Global Express are still hovering over the tumultous terrains for clues. A US Navy P-8 Poseidon aircraft had also been deployed.

Lisa Martin, spokeswoman for the Australian Maritime Safety Authority said that the weather conditions were improving by the day and that the main reason behind the failed mission yesterday was bad weather.

Meanwhile, Mike Yardley, an air commodore with New Zealand's Air Force, said that he was optimistic that the objects would be found. "We will find it I'm sure about that piece of it. The only reason we wouldn't find it was that it has sunk. I've been on these missions before when it's taken a few days to come across it."

After having spoken to the Chinese President Xi Jinping, Tony Abbott in a media meet said,"We've been throwing everything we've got at that area to try to learn more about what this debris might be. It's about the most inaccessible spot that you could imagine on the face of the earth, but if there is anything down there we will find it. We owe it to the families of those people to do no less."

In Beijing, relatives of the passengers met Malaysian officials at the Lido Hotel where most of them have been put up, awaiting news of their loved-ones. Some of them believe that the Malaysian authorities are hiding something from them.
