Full coverage: Malaysia Airlines Plane Bound for Beijing Goes Missing

It’s been 30 days since the Beijing-bound jetliner vanished after taking off from Kuala Lumpur, with 239 people on board. The big news is that a Chinese ship detected a "pulse signal" in the Indian Ocean, with the same frequency emitted by the plane’s data recorders.

According to the Joint Agency Coordination Center in Perth, today’s search is focusing on 216-thousand square kilometers of the southern Indian Ocean. It’s some two thousand kilometers north west of Perth. Search areas have been refined based on continuing ground-breaking and multi-disciplinary technical analysis of satellite communication.

A Chinese military aircraft has departed Perth airport, China’s Ilyushin IL-76 will be joined by nine other military planes, two civilian aircraft and thirteen ships.

The JACC says weather conditions are expected to be fair, with a cloud base of 760 meters and visibility greater than 10 kilometers.
