Investigators are expanding the search area for Malaysia Airlines Flight 370, and may start combing the Indian Ocean for the missing airliner, U.S. officials announced on March 13.
The search continues in the mysterious disappearance of Malaysia Airlines Flight 370, and unfortunately it looks like investigators aren’t getting any closer to narrowing down the whereabouts of the plane that went missing on March 8.
Malaysia Airlines Flight 370 In Indian Ocean? — Search Area Expanded For Plane
On day six of the search for Malaysia Airlines Flight MH370, a new report claims that the reason rescue teams haven’t been able to locate the missing plane is because they may not be looking in the right place. The aircraft reportedly kept flying for four more hours after it lost contact with air traffic controllers.
Malaysian authorities say new data indicates that the plane may have flown into the Indian Ocean, a senior U.S. official tells CNN.
White House spokesman Jay Carney said on March 13 that “some new information that’s not necessarily conclusive” could lead to “reallocating some assets” in the Indian Ocean. The new data seems to pose more questions than answers, but we hope it will help investigators finally find the missing airliner.
Families Of MH370 Passengers In Distress
In Bejing, the relatives of the 153 missing passengers have been staying together at the Lido Hotel waiting for more information about their loved ones and the missing airplane they were on.
It’s been five days since the MH370 went missing, and the hundreds of family members hoping and praying for any sign of the missing airplane are in a constant state of distress. No one can imagine the pain they are going through, and waiting hours and hours every day for even the slightest chance of the plane being found must be absolute torture.
