LATEST NEWS – All hope is gone that signals will be heard from deep within the Southern Indian Ocean, as the search for Malaysian Airlines flight MH370 continues apace.

Pings from what are believed to be the aircraft black boxes were first heard a week and a half ago as the batteries powering them reached the end of their lifespan. Ominously, nothing more has been heard since the signals were reacquired for a short period a week ago Wednesday.

They have been heard a total of four times but nevertheless assist search teams to hone in on a possible debris field in which to further search for key parts of the Malaysian jet.

Australian Defence Vessel Ocean Shield deployed the Bluefin-21 Autonomous Underwater Vehicle (AUV) for its tenth mission in the search area yesterday.

It has now searched over eighty per cent of a carefully focused underwater search area but no contacts of interest have been found to date.

The underwater search area is defined as a 10km circle centered around the second Towed Pinger Locator detection which occurred on 8 April.

Meanwhile, 10 military aircraft and 12 ships will assist in today’s search for missing Malaysia Airlines flight MH370. Australia’s Maritime Safety Authority has planned a visual search area totaling approximately 37,948 square kilometres. The centre of the search area lies approximately 1584 kilometres north west of Perth.

Over a fortnight has gone by since Australian authorities dramatically altered the search area following receipt of what was termed “credible new information”, but debris spotted and retrieved from the surface of the Southern Indian Ocean has so far not been linked to the missing aircraft.
