Australian satellite imagery has shown two “credible” objects in the Indian Ocean possibly related to the missing Malaysia Airlines flight MH370, and Australia’s maritime search agency are now focusing all of their resources on searching the area.
According to live updates via The Guardian, the sighting is believed to be a “promising lead” in the search. Aircraft deployed from Australia and New Zealand are flying to the location and a US Poseidon vessel is also attending the operation.
The development follows a press release from the AMSA Emergency Response Division General Manager John Young earlier today stating:
The Australian Maritime Safety Authority is coordinating the search for the missing Malaysia Airlines aircraft, with assistance from the Australian Defence Force, the New Zealand Air Force and the United States Navy.
AMSA’s Rescue Coordination Centre Australia has received satellite imagery of objects possibly related to the search for the missing aircraft, flight MH370.
RCC Australia received an expert assessment of commercial satellite imagery on Thursday.
The images were captured by satellite. They may not be related to the aircraft.
We’ll keep updating here as news comes in.
