Relatives mark one year of Flight 370
Mar. 08, 2015 at 09:00pm


Family members of Chinese passengers from the missing Malaysia Airlines flight MH370 protest, with one showing a poster saying“Bring the MH370 passengers home,” as they leave after a prayersession at the Yonghegong Lama temple in Beijing on March 8.   A year on, there remains no evidence to indicate what caused Malaysia Airlines Flight MH370 to vanish or where it ended up despite the most expensive search operation in history. AFP

BEIJING—Chinese relatives of passengers on board the missing flight MH370 gathered under a heavy police presence Sunday to mark one year since the plane disappeared.

About two thirds of those on board the Malaysia Airlines flight were Chinese, but relatives say they have faced harassment from authorities in their own country as they seek answers on the world’s biggest aviation mystery.

China’s ruling Communist Party commonly clamps down in organized gatherings or collective expressions of anger as it seeks to enforce stability.

Chinese relatives had planned to commemorate the disappearance of the Boeing 777 at a number of sites in Beijing, including the Malaysian embassy, the airport and the Lama Temple, a popular Tibetan Buddhist place of worship and tourist site.

Flight 370 report released one year after vanishing

KUALA LUMPUR, Malaysia - The first comprehensive report into the disappearance of Malaysia Airlines Flight 370 revealed Sunday that the battery of the locator beacon for the plane's data recorder had expired more than a year before the jet vanished on March 8, 2014.

The report came as Australian Prime Minister Tony Abbott said the hunt for the plane would not end even if the scouring of the current search area off Australia's west coast comes up empty.

Apart from the anomaly of the expired battery, the detailed report devoted pages after pages describing the complete normality of the flight, which disappeared while heading from Kuala Lumpur to Beijing, setting off aviation's biggest mystery.

Disappearance of MH 370—a year on

Media Release
WT073/2015
07 March 2015
 
Tomorrow marks one year since the tragic disappearance of Malaysia Airlines flight MH 370.

“For the families and friends of the 239 passengers and crew on board the past year has been one of anguish, deep sorrow and a daily struggle to come terms with their loss. The disaster has left an unfillable hole in many lives,” Deputy Prime Minister and Minister for Infrastructure and Regional Development Warren Truss said.

“At this time, more than ever, our thoughts are with the loved ones of those on board the aircraft and, in particular, those who have called Australia home.

“Having spent time with the Australian families over the past few days, I share their sense of helplessness at not knowing what happened to the aircraft. Not knowing is compounding their loss.

“It is for this reason that the governments of Australia, Malaysia and the People's Republic of China remain committed to the search for the missing aircraft. The families deserve answers and we are doing all we can to get them.

It was found in July, and the item is undergoing lab tests now...now?  Why so long?  Oh, well, waiting patiently for some other good news.

Debris on Australia beach could be from Flight 370

An unopened moist towelette bearing the Malaysia Airlines logo found on a beach in Western Australia could be from Malaysia Airlines Flight 370, but officials say even if it is, it's unlikely to help them find the plane that disappeared more than year ago.

The discovery, first reported by Australia's News Nine, was made in July by a couple walking along the beach roughly 150 miles north of Perth. The small item is currently undergoing laboratory tests in Canberra to verify whether or not it did indeed come from the ill-fated Boeing 777.

An official with the Australian Transport Safety Bureau confirmed the towelette's discovery, but said the tests were unlikely to prove definitively any connection to Flight 370.

"It is unlikely that such a common item with no unique identifier could be conclusively linked with MH370," the spokesman told News Nine.

MH370 Operational Search Update—
11 March 2015


 
Key developments this week

GO Phoenix departed the search area on Friday, 6 March for Fremantle to conduct a scheduled resupply visit.

Fugro Discovery continued to conduct search operations.

Fugro Equator continued to conduct search operations.

Fugro Supporter continued to conduct search operations.

More than 30,000 square kilometres (around 50 percent) of the priority zone have now been searched.

On 8 March, the Malaysian Government released an Interim Statement on the Safety Investigation for MH370. The report can be viewed at http://mh370.gov.my/.
 
Collection of data from the underwater search

In the search for MH370, Fugro Discovery, Fugro Equator and GO Phoenix use towfish equipped with side scan sonar, synthetic aperture sonar and multibeam echo sounders. This equipment sends out sound pulses that reflect back through the water from anything they touch. The towfish sends raw data back to the ship where its quality is checked and the data is reviewed for any anomalies. The operators are looking for high-energy responses—instances in which the sound pulses have bounced back from objects that are extremely hard, like the metal of aircraft debris.

MH370 Operational Search Update—
18 March 2015


 
Key developments this week

GO Phoenix departed the port of Fremantle on 13 March after conducting a scheduled resupply visit, and is en route to the search area.

The presence of ex-Tropical Cyclone Haliba in the southern Indian Ocean resulted in severe weather and sea conditions, and the vessels

Fugro Discovery, Fugro Equator, and Fugro Supporter were obliged to suspend search operations.  All three vessels recommenced search operations on 17 March.

Underwater search

Around 50 percent of the priority search area has been searched.

Assuming no significant delays with vessels, equipment or from the weather, the current underwater search area may be largely completed around May 2015.
