LONDON, April 08. /ITAR-TASS/. Teams searching for the missing Malaysian Boeing 777-200 said they had been unable to detect further signals similar to those received on April 5-6, British media reported on Tuesday. The experts said the signals were possibly coming from the air liner’s black box.
Former defense chief Angus Houston, who now heads Joint Agency Coordination Center (JACC), said the signals represented “the best lead in the search yet.” “That's why it’s so important to get another transmission and we need to continue until there's absolutely no chance the (black box) device is still transmitting,” Houston noted. It would considerably complicate the search, and the rescue teams will have to inspect a larger area.
Houston said it was possible that an autonomous underwater vehicle may join the search in the next few days. The search area in the Indian Ocean currently encompasses the area of 75,000 square kilometers. The search area is located about 1,700 kilometers from the Australian city of Perth.
Boeing 777-200 (flight MH370) was flying from Kuala Lumpur to Beijing with 227 passengers and 12 crewmembers on board on March 7. Contact with it was lost about two hours after its departure from the Malaysian capital.
