Question

New search area for MH370 determined...

​Australia: New analysis backs search area for Malaysia Airlines Flight 370
December 2, 2015 Australian authorities said Thursday that new analysis confirms they've likely been searching in the right place for a missing Malaysian airliner. Searchers have been combing a 46,000-square-mile part of the Indian Ocean since last year but have yet to turn up any trace of Malaysia Airlines Flight 370.
Quote:
The only confirmed wreckage of Flight 370 to be recovered was a wing flap found on a remote Indian Ocean island in July. The new analysis by an agency of the Defence Department confirmed "the highest probability" the final resting place for the plane is within the current search area, the government said in a statement.


This map shows the currents between where Malaysia Airlines Flight 370 went off the radar and where the debris was found.

Australia's Deputy Prime Minister Warren Truss said the new analysis pointed to the aircraft most likely coming to rest in the southern part of the current search area, so searchers would focus on that location and slightly widen the boundaries of the search area there. The Boeing 777 vanished with 239 people aboard on March 8, 2014, during a flight from Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, to Beijing. Authorities are baffled by how and why it disappeared.

The current seabed search more than 1,100 miles southwest of Australia began in October last year. Ships using side-scan sonar and an underwater drone fitted with a video camera have so far scoured more than 27,000 square miles of rugged terrain. The search area is based on analysis of scant satellite information that tracked the final hours of Flight 370.
