Missing Plane: Search Teams Investigate Possible Black Box Sounds In OceanFeatured, Latest News Sunday, April 6th, 2014
Search teams looking for Malaysia Airlines Flight 370 are investigating a number of sounds detected by ships in the southern Indian Ocean, authorities said Sunday, but it’s not yet clear if any of them are from the missing plane’s so-called black box.
A British Royal Navy vessel is on its way to an area where a Chinese ship reported picking up electronic signals twice, once on Friday and again on Saturday, said Angus Houston, the head of the Australian agency coordinating search operations.
And the Australian naval ship Ocean Shield, which has highly sophisticated equipment, is pursuing “an acoustic noise” that it detected in a different area, Houston said at a news conference.
He said the detections were “an important and encouraging lead,” but he cautioned that they be treated “carefully” as they haven’t been verified as being related to Flight 370.
