Possible Malaysian plane debris spotted off Australia

Satellites have spotted matter that could be debris from a missing Malaysia Airlines plane off the coast of Australia.
"New and credible information has come to light in relation to the search for Malaysia Airlines Flight MH370 in the southern Indian Ocean," Abbott told the Australian parliament.

"The Australian Maritime Safety Authority (AMSA) has received information based on satellite imagery of objects possibly related to the search."

"Following specialist analysis of this satellite imagery, two possible objects related to the search have been identified," he said.

Abbott said he had already spoken with his Malaysian counterpart Najib Razak and cautioned that the objects had yet to be identified.

"The task of locating these objects will be extremely difficult and it may turn out they are not related to the search for MH370," Abbott said.


Australia is leading the search in the southern part of the southern corridor, with assistance from the US Navy.

The exact location of the possible debris was not clear, and Abbott did not say if it was in the search area set out by AMSA.

The area that Australia was searching on Wednesday was mostly around 2,000-3,000 meters deep, although that part of the ocean does go as deep at 4,000-5,000 meters.

That would make recovering the "black box" voice and data recorders that may finally unlock the mystery of what happened aboard Flight MH370 extremely challenging.
I'm still leaning toward one of the pilots deciding to commit suicide as happened with EgyptAir 990. Too bad he had to take all those people with him.

Actually, the plane crash landed on the beach of an island. There are 50 survivors, including a spinal surgeon, a rock musician, a young Korean couple, a petty criminal, a female fugitive handcuffed to a marshal, a dog, a kid, his dad, and a mysterious bald guy. But there are already people on the island who don't like visitors. But don't worry too much about them, some mysterious foundation air drops food to them.
