Missing Aircraft: The search goes on

The disappearance of Malaysian Airlines Flight MH370 remains a mystery many weeks after its departure from Kuala Lumpur on 3 March, despite considerable efforts to locate the Beijing-bound aircraft and its 239 passengers. Initially, aircraft and ships searched the south of Vietnam, before the search area moved to the southern Indian Ocean and Western Australia.

The Australian Defence Vessel (ADV)Ocean Shield soon became the lead ship in the operation. Working on electronic transmissions, submarine drones were deployed from Ocean Shield. The extreme ocean depth did not allow the remote submarines to reach the ocean floor, but the search is ongoing at the time of writing. Ocean Shield (ex-Skandi Bergen) is civilian-manned, readily available and well-suited for disaster relief operations. VHY
