MH370: Fifth signal detected

An Australian aircraft has today detected what may be a fifth signal from a man-made device in the southern Indian Ocean, which those leading the search for the black boxes think could be from the missing Malaysia Airlines Flight 370.

The Chief Coordinator of the Joint Agency Coordination Centre, Air Chief Marshal Angus Houston confirmed that whilst conducting an acoustic search this afternoon a RAAF AP-3C Orion aircraft has detected a possible signal in the vicinity of the Australian Defence Vessel Ocean Shield.

“The acoustic data will require further analysis overnight but shows potential of being from a man-made source,” said Houston.

One Response to MH370: Fifth signal detected

    It will be very interesting to see what analysis they will be able to present at tonight’s (US time) Press Conference. The sonobuoy has the potential to hold the contact for a longer period, which could give the Ocean Shield the opportunity to obtain further contacts (or additional sonobuoys). Also, depending on the model of sonobuoy used, it may provide a heading for the contact.
