Australia working on model to find MH370 wreckage


11-26-2014 14:21 BJT

Australia is working on new expanded modeling to predict where wreckage from the missing Malaysia Airline flight MH370 jetliner may come ashore. Peter Foley, who is in charge of coordinating the search effort, updated the public on Wednesday.

"In terms of where we are searching, we are very confident with the satellite comms models that we've worked and reworked, and we’ve had very expert people arriving at where we are searching. So we are very confident the aircraft is on the seventh arc, and we are covering a big enough area so that we cover every possibility, every practical possibility as far as the location of the aircraft is concerned, within reason," Foley said.

Foley said searchers had been receiving reports at least once a week of debris washing up on the Australian coastline. But none have been identified as part of the missing aircraft, which disappeared en route from Kuala Lumpur to Beijing on March 8. Two hundred and thirty nine people, including 154 Chinese, were on board. Initial analysis suggested the first debris from the plane could come ashore on Indonesia's Western Sumatra.
