Missing Malaysian airplane: US Navy says they found 'something'

Objects have been found floating in the Indian Ocean. It is possible they are linked to the missing Malaysian airplane. According to a March 20 report by ABC News, a member of the crew of a US Navy P-8 Poseidon stated “there is something down there.”

It would be premature to tell if the objects that have been spotted are part of Flight 370. Despite that, this is the first concrete lead that has been found since the plane disappeared more than a week ago. It is possible that parts of the plane have been found, but it will take time to know that for sure.

Australians had reported earlier that a satellite had found two large objects floating in the Indian Ocean. Although the term “debris field” was not used, those two large objects that were found were surrounded by several smaller objects. The Australians sent out planes and ships to further investigate.

The US Navy P-8 Poseidon is using radar to search the area. The area where the objects were found were in the southern-most area where it was thought the airplane could have traveled.

The search area had been “dramatically narrowed” earlier. This was due to American and British aviation officials refining satellite signals believed to be the missing Malaysian airplane.

As it has been since Flight 370 disappeared on March 8, the situation remains extremely fluid. Information is slowly being released. Additional facts should be made available over the next several hours regarding whether or not the objects found are the missing Malaysian airplane Flight 370.
