It’s been ten months since a Malaysia Airlines jet vanished off Australia’s west coast. And now, a fourth ship with specialized underwater equipment will join in the search.
Acting Australian Prime Minister Warren Truss says the ship is on its way to the search area after conducting trials off the Indonesian island of Bali.
He says the ship is equipped with an autonomous underwater vehicle that will be used to scan portions of the search area that cannot be searched effectively by the equipment on other vessels.
Not a single trace of Malaysia Airlines Flight 370 has been found since the Boeing 777 vanished with 239 people aboard last March 8th en route from Kuala Lumpur to Beijing.
