LONDON, March 13. /ITAR-TASS/. Vietnamese and Malaysian planes have not found wreck of the missing Boeing 777-200 of Malaysian Airlines in the area of its alleged crash, Reuters news agency reported on Thursday.

Malaysian air force chief Rodzali Daud has confirmed these reports.

The search operation was carried out in the South China Sea, where Chinese satellites earlier located several unidentified objects. According to China’s Committee for Defense Science, Technology, and Industry, Gaofen-1 high-resolution satellite for remote sensing of the Earth on March 9 had spotted three objects floating on the surface of the South China Sea in the search area.

Communication with Malaysian Airlines’ plane carrying 227 passengers and 12 crewmembers onboard was lost two hours after its departure from Malaysian capital March 7.

At present, several countries are investigating possible causes of the disappearance of Boeing 777. In particular, a version drafted by American experts in aviation safety that obtained data about the engine’s operation says that the airliner could be in the air for 4 or 5 hours after the connection was lost.

In the search for the missing plane are currently taking part air and naval forces of Malaysia, China, Singapore, Vietnam, the Philippines, Indonesia and the USA.
