MH370 Operational Search Update—
26 October 2016

 
Key developments this week

Fugro Equator berthed at AMC Henderson on Friday 21 October, and commenced re-mobilisation of the Hugin 4500 Autonomous Underwater Vehicle (AUV) search system for its deployment in the search. The vessel departed the Australian Marine Complex at Henderson on 24 October, proceeding to the calibration range to test the performance of the AUV.

Dong Hai Jiu 101 departed Fremantle on Thursday 20 October and, after conducting trials of the Remotely Operated Vehicle (ROV), proceeded to the search area. The vessel arrived in the search area on Monday 24 October and commenced search operations.
 
Weather

Weather conditions are predicted to be marginal changing to poor later in the week. These conditions may impact the progress of the search operations as the ROV requires frequent launching and recovery—operations which call for suitable conditions.

New MH370 report says plane crashed into ocean at high speed
4:31 p.m. EDT November 2, 2016

The Malaysia Airlines Flight 370 that disappeared nearly three years ago with 239 people on board crashed into the Indian Ocean at high speed rather than gliding down gently, an analysis of the debris found.

The conclusion from the Australian Transport Safety Bureau made public Wednesday is based on analysis of 20 pieces of debris believed to have come from the Boeing 777. Pieces of debris have washed ashore on the east and south coast of Africa, the east coast of Madagascar and the islands of Mauritius, Reunion and Rodriguez since the plane disappeared March 8, 2014, during a flight from Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, to Beijing.

Two sections of flaps were traced specifically to the lost plane by their markings.

Damage to pieces of the wings suggest the flaps “most likely” weren’t deployed as they would be in a controlled glide for landing, according to the bureau’s 27-page report.

Report on Malaysia Airlines Flight 370 Narrows Search Area, if Not Mystery
By MICHELLE INNIS  NOV. 2, 2016

SYDNEY, Australia — Extensive tracking of debris from Malaysia Airlines Flight 370, which disappeared more than two years ago in the southern Indian Ocean with 239 people onboard, has further narrowed the search area in a remote swath of ocean off the coast of Western Australia.

The tracking was detailed in a report from the Australian Transport Safety Bureau that was released in Canberra on Wednesday.

The report said it was likely that debris drifted from an area around the midpoint of the current search site, due west of Australia’s southwestern corner. Modeling and ocean tests showed it was unlikely the debris began to drift from farther north or south.

Key developments this week

Fugro Equator is continuing underwater search operations in the north of the 120,000 square-kilometre search area using the Autonomous Underwater Vehicle (AUV). As of today, Fugro Equator has undertaken a total of 16 missions this swing. Three AUV missions were successfully completed this week, with an average duration of 27 hours.

Dong Hai Jiu 101 is continuing underwater search operations using the Remotely Operated Vehicle (ROV) in the south of the search area but operations have been affected by unsuitable weather conditions. Dong Hai Jiu 101 has conducted a total of 13  ROV dives during the swing. Two dives were completed by Dong Hai Jiu 101 in the past week with one sonar contact identified as geology. Dive 13 identified a sonar contact as a debris field from a nearby shipwreck (Shipwreck #2). Dive 14 is currently underway.

Underwater Search Operations

The underwater search continues with an AUV searching areas of challenging terrain and an ROV examining a range of sonar contacts which have been previously identified. The first figure below shows the original sonar data featuring a contact (designated HH0009a) detected earlier in the search. The second image is a frame grab of video taken by the ROV on the seafloor. The contact was confirmed as being manmade and is almost certainly debris from a nearby shipwreck.

These images show the complexity of imagery of the search and the difference in sonar and visual interpretations of contacts.

Chinese ship pulls out of MH370 search, leaving lone ship
Published December 06, 2016

CANBERRA, Australia –  Officials say the sea bed search for the missing Malaysian airliner has been left to a single ship, with a Chinese vessel heading home to Shanghai.

The Australian Transport Safety Bureau said in a statement Wednesday that a Dutch survey ship will finish the search of the southern Indian Ocean for Malaysia Airlines Flight 370 alone after resupplying at the southwest Australian port of Fremantle.

The statement says a Chinese ship finished searching last weekend and was heading back to Fremantle to drop off equipment before returning to its home port of Shanghai.

MH370 Operational Search Update—
07 December 2016

 
Key developments this week

Fugro Equator paused underwater search operations on Tuesday, 6 December 2016, and commenced passage to Fremantle for a routine re-supply. It will then return to the search area to continue using the Autonomous Underwater Vehicle (AUV). Over the past week, Fugro Equator completed a total of 4 successful AUV missions, with an average duration of 23 hours.

On Saturday, 3 December 2016, Dong Hai Jiu 101 concluded underwater search operations and commenced passage to Fremantle to demobilise the Phoenix Remora III Remotely Operated Vehicle (ROV) before the vessel returns to Shanghai. Dong Hai Jiu 101 has completed 33 dives with the ROV since October 2016.

Underwater Search Operations

As has been reported in previous Updates, search operations moved from deep tow operations to AUV and ROV operations in October 2016.

Deep tow vehicles are equipped with side scan sonar and multibeam echo sounders, making them ideal for searching large areas of the seafloor in a single pass. They are towed behind the vessels on 10 kilometre-long cables and while they require reasonable conditions to safely launch, once they are in the water they can remain deployed for days at a time.

Areas of the seafloor that are difficult or inefficient to search using the deep tow vehicles, for example areas with irregular terrain are searched using the highly maneuverable AUV. The AUV is also used to reacquire sonar contacts which require further investigation. The AUV must be launched and recovered in relatively calm sea conditions which limits these operations to the better summer weather months in the search area.

The ROV on Dong Hai Jiu 101 has been used to reacquire, investigate and eliminate sonar contacts of potential interest identified during previous deep tow and AUV search operations. An ROV is launched from the side of the vessel and is tethered by a cable. The vessel must remain geostationary over the top of the ROV during a dive and therefore these operations must also be conducted in calmer sea conditions. The sonar contacts reacquired by the ROV in the past swing of Dong Hai Jiu 101 have been shown to be mainly geology with some manmade items, including cables and drums, which have no relationship to MH370.

Deep tow operations of the search area were completed in October 2016. Since that time AUV and ROV operations have been used to undertake detailed examination of sonar contacts and points of interest, and examine areas not able to be covered by deep tow operations.

The search vessel, Dong Hai Jiu 101, provided by the People's Republic of China, departed the search area on 3 December 2016 and has completed its missions in the search for MH370.

Fugro Equator's missions in the remaining parts of the 120,000 square-kilometre search area are expected to be completed in January/February 2017.

MH370 search ship leaves Australia for perhaps final time
Passengers' relatives hope that drift analysis of the washed-up debris will provide the new evidence to continue the search.
By: AP | Perth |   Published:December 13, 2016 9:12 am

A lone survey vessel has left an Australian port for perhaps the final time to search for the Malaysian airliner that mysteriously crashed into the southern Indian Ocean two years ago, officials said Tuesday. The Dutch survey ship Fugro Equator left Fremantle on Monday night to continue the search for Malaysia Airlines Flight 370 alone, Minister for Infrastructure and Transport Darren Chester’s office said.

Whether the voyage is the ship’s final monthlong deployment from Fremantle before the search was completed after more than two years would depend on the weather, Chester’s office said.

Chester thanked China for the services of a Chinese ship that in February joined the search of a 120,000-square-kilometer (46,000-square-mile) area where authorities calculate that the Boeing 777 crashed with 239 people aboard on March 8, 2014. The Chinese ship started making its way back to Shanghai this month.

Fugro Equator is using a highly maneuverable drone known as an autonomous underwater vehicle to get sonar images of difficult terrain that could not be reliably searched with towed sonar equipment.

Key developments this week

Fugro Equator arrived at Fremantle on Monday, 12 December 2016, to conduct a routine re-supply. The vessel departed on the same day for the search area to continue using the Autonomous Underwater Vehicle (AUV). This is to be the vessel's final swing in the search area.

On Wednesday, 7 December 2016, Dong Hai Jiu 101 arrived in Fremantle to demobilise the Phoenix Remora III Remotely Operated Vehicle (ROV). The vessel departed from Fremantle on Saturday, 10 December, to return to Shanghai.

Search Status

At a meeting of Ministers from Malaysia, Australia and the People's Republic of China held on 22 July 2016, it was agreed that should the aircraft not be located in the current search area, and in the absence of credible new evidence leading to the identification of a specific location of the aircraft, the search would be suspended upon completion of the 120,000 square-kilometre search area.

Ministers have reiterated that this does not mean the termination of the search. Should credible new information emerge that can be used to identify the specific location of the aircraft, consideration will be given to determining next steps.

Due to poor weather conditions over the Southern hemisphere winter, searching the entire 120,000 square-kilometre underwater search area has taken longer than first planned. Currently it is expected the search operations of the current area will be completed in January 2017.

So...we were searching in the wrong haystack?  Still waiting and hoping...

Where is MH370?
The Canadian Press - Dec 20, 2016 / 6:52 am | Story

Photo: The Canadian Press

For two years, a handful of ships have diligently combed a remote patch of the Indian Ocean west of Australia in a $160 million bid to find Malaysia Airlines Flight 370. On Tuesday, investigators made what was surely a painful admission: They have probably been looking in the wrong place.

The latest analysis by a team of international investigators concluded the vanished Boeing 777 is highly unlikely to be in the current search zone and may instead be in a region farther north. But though crews are expected to finish their deep-sea sonar hunt of the current search area next month, the possibility of extending the search to the north appeared doubtful, with Australia's transport minister suggesting the analysis wasn't specific enough to justify continuing the hunt.

The latest twist in the search for Flight 370 highlights the extraordinary difficulty officials have faced in their attempts to find the aircraft based on the faintest scraps of data. All along, officials have said they are not simply looking for a needle in a haystack — they are looking for the haystack.

On Tuesday, the haystack was poised to shift again, with the release of a report by the Australian Transport Safety Bureau, which is leading the search for the plane. The report is the result of a November meeting of international and Australian experts who re-examined all the data used to define the search area for the aircraft, which vanished during a flight from Kuala Lumpur to Beijing on March 8, 2014, with 239 people on board.

MH370 First Principles Review report
Media Release
DC241/2016
20 December 2016

Minister for Infrastructure and Transport Darren Chester today welcomed the release of the Australian Transport Safety Bureau's (ATSB) report MH370—First Principles Review.

“The ATSB report is the result of the First Principles Review workshop in November which was attended by members of the Search Strategy Working Group and international experts,” Mr Chester said.

“The information in the ATSB report, however, does not give a specific location of the missing aircraft.

“We are very close to completing the 120,000 square kilometre underwater search area, and we remain hopeful that we will locate the aircraft.

“As agreed at the Tripartite Ministers meeting in Malaysia in July we will be suspending the search unless credible evidence is available that identifies the specific location of the aircraft.

MH370 search vessel Fugro Equator ‘moved to new location further north’: report
January 9, 201710:14am

A NEW report has claimed that in the final days of searching for Malaysia Airlines Flight 370, a search vessel has moved at high speed to a new location.

The Daily Beastreports that the Dutch-owned search vessel Fugro Equator moved more than 321 kilometres north to an area experts have recently identified as likely to contain the remains of the Boeing 777.

Dr Richard Cole, from the University College in London, has claimed to have detected the change in mission in his own satellite tracking. He has been following the search operation closely.

The Fugro Equator was making its final sweeps in that area when it was suddenly diverted north.

It comes after the Australian Transport Safety Bureau (ATSB), which has been leading the search mission, said in a report last month that the jet is almost certainly not in the current search zone and may be further north.

It is understood that the crash site might be between latitudes 32 to 36 degrees south. The Equator is now operating close to latitude 32 degrees south, The Daily Beast reports.

Dr Cole told The Daily Beast: “Equator has re-entered the search to the north, away from the area originally identified in late 2014 by the Australian Defense Science and Technology Group. Using a sonar system, it is now checking sea floor not previously scanned. The search has only limited time left, but they are investing this remaining time in scanning the area they now believe is the most likely location of MH370.”

The search for the missing Malaysia Airlines plane MH370, that went missing in 2014, is set to conclude within two weeks, Malaysia’s transport minister has confirmed.

The search is called off/suspended.  Hopefully, the plane is found in the future...  Sad

Search for Malaysia Airlines Flight 370 finally called off with mystery unsolved
January 17 at 12:50 PM

BEIJING — The search for Malaysia Airlines Flight MH370 was finally called off Tuesday after nearly three years spent combing the desolate Indian Ocean and its deep seabed, leaving one of the greatest aviation mysteries of all time unsolved.

The governments of Malaysia, Australia and China said crews finished an underwater sweep of a 46,000-square-mile zone of seabed without finding the missing Boeing 777.

The most complex and expensive search in aviation history cost around $150 million but failed to locate the plane, let alone answer the questions surrounding its disappearance in March 2014.

“Despite every effort using the best science available, cutting-edge technology, as well as modelling and advice from highly skilled professionals who are the best in their field, unfortunately, the search has not been able to locate the aircraft,” the Joint Agency Coordination Center in Australia said in a statement.

“The decision to suspend the underwater search has not been taken lightly nor without sadness,” the agency said
.
 
Just last month, officials investigating the plane’s disappearance took another look at the satellite data and modeling of ocean currents and decided they might have been searching in the wrong place after all.

They recommended that the search be moved more than 200 miles north.

But it was too late: The three governments bankrolling the search had already concluded that it would be suspended unless convincing new evidence emerged to pinpoint the plane’s location.

That wasn’t forthcoming, so in the absence of fresh leads or private money to fund a new effort, the search for MH370 is now officially over.

Families' anger as MH370 search called off

Perth woman Danica Weeks is distraught and angry the search for Malaysia Airlines flight 370 has been called off nearly three years after the plane went missing with her husband Paul and 238 others on board.

"I'm still processing it, it's unacceptable, it's just disgusting really," Ms Weeks, who has two young sons who lost their father, told AAP.

Transport ministers from Australia, Malaysia and China confirmed on Tuesday the underwater search in 120,000 square km of the southern Indian Ocean had been suspended until there is any new credible evidence.

Distraught relatives have questioned why the search was called off less than a month after international experts identified a new area they believed contained the aircraft.
