MH370 Black Box Found

Unconfirmed report says Malaysia Airlines Flight MH370 black box has been found

RESCUE teams are now within “several” kilometres of what they are now confident are the black box flight recorders from missing Malaysian plane MH370, Prime Minister Tony Abbott has revealed.

But he said they were now engaged in a race against time to find it as the signal starts to fade.

The Prime Minister will meet personally with Chinese President Xi Jinping in Beijing this afternoon to update him on the latest efforts to find the black box, hinting that it would soon be located.

“We have very much narrowed down the search area ... we have now had a series of detections, some for quite a long period of time.

“It’s now getting to the stage that the signal from what we are very confident is from the black box is starting to fade.

“We are hoping to get as much information as we can before the signals finally expire.

“We have very much narrowed down the search area.

But the PM said he did not want to reveal any more details out of respect to the Chinese families, until he met with President Xi tonight in Beijing.

“I really don’t want to say more than that,” he said.

MH370: Possible 5th underwater signal under analysis

Important new details have been released that may help unravel the mystery of flight MH370

Investigators got new information that may help them narrow the possible whereabouts of Malaysia Airlines Flight 370 as details emerged Thursday that shed light on the doomed flight's final moments early March 8 as it flew from Kuala Lumpur toward Beijing.

A search plane has detected a possible signal from the locator beacons on the so-called black boxes from the missing aircraft, the Australian agency coordinating the search announced.

"The acoustic data will require further analysis overnight but shows potential of being from a man-made source," said retired Air Chief Marshal Angus Houston, the agency's chief coordinator.

Other important elements were revealed Thursday from a senior Malaysian government official and another source involved in the investigation:

SYDNEY: Australian officials said on Monday signals picked up by a black box detector attached to an Australian ship searching for missing Malaysia Airlines Flight MH370 in the Indian Ocean were consistent with aircraft flight recorders.

"Clearly, this is a most promising lead," Angus Houston, head of the Australian agency coordinating the search, told a news conference in Perth in western Australia.

Houston, a retired air chief marshal, said two signals had been detected off Australia's northwest coast.

The first detection held for 2.5 hours before the ship lost contact, after turning around, the ship picked up the signal for around 13 minutes, he said.

"On this occasion two distinct pinger returns were audible," Houston said. "Significantly, this would be consistent with transmissions from both the flight data recorder and the cockpit voice recorder."

Latest MH370 : 90 Second Stream Of 37.5kHz Pinger Frequency Detected

Malaysia plane

A 90-second stream of pings picked up by a device tethered to a ship in the Indian Ocean and a field of objects floating nearby offered investigators searching Saturday for Malaysia Airlines Flight 370 the tantalizing hope that they may have caught a break.

“I have been advised that a series of sounds have been detected by a Chinese ship in the search area,” Angus Houston, the chief coordinator of Australia’s Joint Agency Coordination Centre, said in a prepared statement.

“The characteristics reported are consistent with the aircraft black box,” he said, adding that a number of white objects were sited about 56 miles (90 kilometers) away.
