    The fate of the passenger jet, which is presumed to have crashed at sea after disappearing en route from Kuala Lumpur to Beijing with 239 passengers and crew on board in March 2014, remains a mystery.
    Five other fragments have previously been found and identified as [Only registered and activated users can see links. ].
    All of them were discovered thousands of kilometres from the current search zone far off Australia’s west coast.

    An apparent plane part that washed up on a South Australian beach has been sent to check if it has links to missing Malaysia Airlines flight MH370.
    The debris, found by a man searching for driftwood on Kangaroo Island at 2.40pm today, appears to be from a plane and has "no step" printed on it.
    Fairfax Media reports that it is understood the Civil Aviation Safety Authority has seen a photo of the debris and believes it could be from a plane.

    The Malaysian government has approved a new attempt to find the wreckage of Malaysia Airlines Flight 370 in the Indian Ocean.
    A US-based company early this week dispatched a search vessel to look for debris in the southern Indian Ocean, three-and-a-half years after the Boeing 777 disappeared on a flight from Kuala Lumpur to Beijing with 227 passengers, including six Australians, and 12 crew.
    Malaysia, China and Australia called off the 1,046-day official search last year without solving the mystery.

    Ocean Infinity said in a statement that the search vessel Seabed Constructor, which left the South African port of Durban on Tuesday, was taking advantage of favourable weather to move toward "the vicinity of the possible search zone."
    In the initial search for the plane, a 52-day surface search covered an area of several million square kilometres (square miles) in the Indian Ocean west of Australia, before an underwater search mapped 710,000 square kilometres (274,000 square miles) of seabed at depths of up to 6,000 meters (20,000 feet). They were the largest aviation searches of their kind in history, according to the Australian Transport Safety Bureau

    The Australian Transport Safety Bureau today released its final report into the underwater search conducted from the time the plane disappeared until its suspension in January.
    The report offers detail into the search but sheds little fresh evidence about the plane’s location.
    “It remains a great tragedy and we wish that we could have brought complete closure to the bereaved,” ATSB chief commissioner Greg Hood said.
    “I hope, however, that they can take some solace in the fact that we did all we could do to find answers.”



    According to Courthart, the significance of the report lies in its use of language that “suggests the possibility of a sinister hand in the cockpit".
    It confirms for the first time information 60 Minutes received from a leaked Malaysian police report.
    “When I was in Malaysia, one of the crucial pieces of evidence that we stumbled across was a leaked Malaysian police report - which has never been officially acknowledged before - which mentioned the first officers’ mobile cell phone attempted to register with a cell tower,” he said.
    “It is suggestive of a scenario that one of the people in charge of the cockpit was perhaps attempting to communicate with the ground.”

    Kudos to the ATSB and all who have helped in the search, their efforts are greatly appreciated.

    Malaysia will pay US company Ocean Infinity up to $70 million if it can find the wreckage, or the black boxes, of Malaysia Airlines flight 370 within three months.
    The Boeing 777-200ER jet disappeared on March 8, 2014 and has become one of aviation’s biggest mysteries.

    Meanwhile, plans for a memorial site in Perth for the victims of flight MH370 is losing support among relatives of the passengers and crew.
    Over Christmas, the West Australian government released a $125,000 tender for a memorial on Perth’s upmarket Elizabeth Quay development.


    It is intended that the memorial be a fitting monument to the passengers and crew of the missing flight,” the tender stated.
    But relatives of the victims -70 percent of whom are Chinese nationals – are appealing to the WA government and the Federal Government to shelve it.
    They claim the proposal has come to soon and has not involved their consultation.


    Sheryl Keen, president of Aircrash Support Group Australia, an organisation that supports air crash victims and their families, sent a letter to Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull outlining objections to the planned Perth memorial.
    “Many of the next of kin are very unhappy about this decision, finding it nothing but adding further insult to injury, insensitive and disrespectful,” she wrote.

    The wreck of missing Malaysian Airlines flight MH370 — if it is found — could be preserved "like a time capsule" because of the depth, stillness and temperature of waters in the southern Indian Ocean.
    The man who co-led the search for Air France 447 — which crashed in the Atlantic Ocean in 2009 — says if MH370 is at or near the bottom of the sea, the wreckage and indeed bodies could be largely preserved, and still give investigators vital clues as to why the plane disappeared so far off course.
    "It can be a very quiet place with very little oxygen," US oceanographer David Gallo said.
    "At the surface it's not the same thing, so the deep ocean can be like a time capsule that preserves everything."

    Wild conspiracy theories about Malaysian Airlines flight MH370 have now spread to the search ship tasked with finding it.
    Key points:

    • Ocean Infinity signed a deal with the Malaysian Government to search 25,000 square kilometres over 90 days
    • Seabed Constructor went dark on tracking websites
    • Some suggest search ship retrieved chest from sea floor



    For nearly a week some aviation buffs and MH370 followers have been debating online whether the missing plane has in fact been secretly found and — if not — why the ship's Automatic Identification System (AIS) was abruptly turned off for several days, preventing online observers from tracking its movements.
    The ship, Seabed Constructor, suddenly went "dark" on tracking websites not long after it had completed a curious circle, several kilometres wide, prompting many on Twitter to question what was inside the circle on the sea floor.
    The ship then headed south-west in a straight line, and a few kilometres later turned its AIS off.
    "I'm sticking with my theory that the big circle is a piece of debris, and the line south was to locate the plane. When they think they found it they turned off AIS as protocol," one tweet said.
    "This. Is. Strange. I have never seen a ship do this. Maybe there's an AUV lost down there?!?" said another.
