Malaysia Hires US Firm to Search for Missing Flight MH370

US company begins second search for lost Malaysian Airlines flight MH-370 Video

Malaysian Transport Minister Liow Tiong Lai said, "We hope that with this decision we, together with them, can go through these hard times to find answers and find conclusions to this incident of MH 370". The amount rises to US$30 million for the next 10,000 sq km, and US$50 million for the outermost 10,000 sq km. Witnessing the inking of the agreement is Transport Minister Liow Tiong Lai (centre).

Underwater wreck hunter David Mearns said the new search takes into account oceanographic models used to drastically narrow the possible locations of the crash and deploys state-of-the art underwater vehicles that will allow the company to cover far more seabed at a faster pace.

The search will also be conducted in a much smaller area identified by the Australian Transport Safety Bureau. "Last time the search teams could not use that many underwater sensors", Pattiaratchi said.

"As we speak, the vessel, Seabed Constructor, is on her way to the search area, taking advantage of favourable weather conditions in the south Indian Ocean", Mr Liow said in a statement.

Ocean Infinity, which specializes in the collection of "high resolution geophysical seabed data", said in a press release that its command vessel, Seabed Constructor, is en route and "close to" the search area. The 25,000 sq km (9,700 sq miles) area is to the north of the earlier search zone in the southern Indian Ocean.

The payment will be borne by the Malaysian government.

Matt Patricia destined to be New York Giants head coach?
Leonard said Patricia is expected to be named as the next coach of the Giants , replacing the fired Ben McAdoo. Either way, it appears he'll leave New England, an organization for which he's worked 14 years.

"From there, we assessed the right place to search for MH370".

But families of the MH370 victims, two thirds of whom were Chinese nationals, have united to appeal to the Prime Minister and WA Government to shelve the idea.

The governments of Malaysia, China and Australia spent roughly $157 million over the course of a almost three year search with little success outside of washed up debris believed to have come from the aircraft.

"Knowing how the flaperon, and the other parts of MH370 that have been found, respond to wind and waves is just as important as knowing the currents of the Indian Ocean". However, there were no signs of the aircraft.

"Tony Abbott made it clear that plans for building a monument would involve the three governments of China, Malaysia and Australia and the families of victims working in comprehensive consultation", he said. The hunt, which cost A$200 million, was the largest in aviation history. The final report showed authorities were unable to conclude why the plane disappeared or determine its exact location.
