Malaysian Plane: New Images From France Show Possible Debris
New satellite images from France could show possible debris from that malaysian plane that's been missing for over two weeks. The images show objects in the vacinity of the search area located in the southern region of the Indian Ocean.
Malaysia Airlines Flight 370, went missing on March 8 with 239 people on board. Since then, search crews have been working non-stop to find any lead on where the plan is located.
Word of the new French images is just the latest lead indicating possible debris in the Indian Ocean. Just a day before it was announced a Chinese satellite had spotted an object in the region.The object in the captured image appears to be similar in shape to an image seen by an Australian satellite two days before.
Search crews went to the area but have not been able to locate any possible debris. Experts say strong currents in the area likely carried it away from the location the satellite suggested.
But U.S. and Australian search planes are still scouring an area about 1,500 miles off the Australian coast. Searching for debris, officials explained, is very difficult.
"This is going to be a long haul," Malaysia's Defence Minister Hishammuddin Hussein told reporters at a news conference Friday.
"It's about the most inaccessible spot that you could imagine on the face of the earth," Australian Prime Minister Tony Abbott said.
"But if there is anything down there, we will find it," the prime minister vowed. "We owe it to the families of those people to do no less."
Meanwhile, Malaysian authorities haven't ruled out anything as a possible explanation for the jet's disappearance, including hijacking, sabotage, terrorism, or issues related to the mental health of the pilots or passengers on board.
