Oceanographer hopeful MH370 will be found in a month timeJanuary 30, 2018
A top oceanographer from Australia’s national science agency CSIRO has expressed optimism that missing Malaysia Airlines Flight MH370 will be found within a month, after a new search effort kicked off last week.
“We’re hopeful that they (Ocean Infinity) can find the aircraft within the first month of the search,” David Griffin of CSIRO told Agence France-Presse (AFP).
Private US-based company Ocean Infinity has begun its contribution to the search for MH370– to date the single largest in aviation history.
Ocean Infinity’s vessel carries eight “autonomous underwater vehicles”, or submersible craft, that will scour the seabed with scanning equipment for information to be sent back for analysis. The Seabed Constructor began its search on Monday, Malaysia’s Department of Civil Aviation said in a statement.
The flight disappeared en route from Kuala Lumpur to Beijing in March 2014 with 239 people on board.
