THE MISSING PLANE MH370 SITUATION AT 9:30AM WED APR 16,2014

THE BLUEFIN-21 IS HAVING A ROUGH GO OF IT.IT KEEPS RESURFACING IN THE UNCHARTED WATERS.AND THE CHINESE FAMILIES WERE OUTRAGED AGAIN IN A PRESS CONFERENCE AS A SLIDE SHOW NEVER WORKED ABOUT THE INVESTIGATION.AND THE FAMILY MEMBERS WERE SO MAD - THEY WALKED OUT OF THE SESSION YELLING AT THE CONFERENCE LEADERS.THE POOR FAMILY MEMBERS ARE SUFFERING SO MUCH

Update on search for flight MH370-Media Release-16 April 2014—pm-JACC

The Autonomous Underwater Vehicle, Bluefin-21, was forced to resurface this morning to rectify a technical issue. While on deck, its data was downloaded.Bluefin-21 was then redeployed and it is currently continuing its underwater search.Initial analysis of the data downloaded this morning indicates no significant detections.

Search and recovery continues for Malaysian flight MH370
Media Release-16 April 2014—am-JACC


Up to 11 military aircraft, three civil aircraft and 11 ships will assist in today's search for missing Malaysia Airlines flight MH370.Today the Australian Maritime Safety Authority has planned a visual search area totalling approximately 55,151 square kilometres. The centre of the search areas lies approximately 2,087 kilometres north west of Perth.The Autonomous Underwater Vehicle was again deployed last night from ADV Ocean Shield.The data from Bluefin-21's first mission has been downloaded and analysed. No objects of interest were found.The weather forecast for today is south easterly winds with isolated rain showers, sea swells up to two metres and visibility of five kilometres.

Ocean floor search for missing Malaysia plane cut short again

PERTH, Australia (Reuters) - The search for a Malaysia Airlines jetliner deep in the Indian Ocean was again cut short on Wednesday when technical problems forced a U.S. Navy underwater drone to surface without finding anything, officials said.While a massive air and sea search for missing Malaysian Airlines flight MH370 is continuing almost 2,000 km (1,200 miles) off the coast of Perth, hopes have been pinned on the Bluefin- 21 autonomous underwater vehicle finding the first concrete sign of the plane in more than six weeks of hunting.Malaysian authorities have still not ruled out mechanical problems as causing the Boeing 777's disappearance, but say evidence suggests it was deliberately diverted from its scheduled route from Kuala Lumpur to Beijing.An aircraft's black box records data from the cockpit and conversations among flight crew and may provide answers about what happened to the missing plane.A unspecified technical problem meant the Bluefin resurfaced early on Wednesday and analysis of the sonar data downloaded showed no significant detections, the Australian agency leading the search said.It has subsequently been relaunched to continue its search.The drone was forced to end its first deployment early on Monday after it exceeded its 4.5 km (14,750 feet) depth limit in the remote stretch of ocean where search authorities believe the jetliner crashed after its disappearance on March 8 with 239 people on board.The introduction of the Bluefin marks a methodical, slower paced new phase of the search, now in its 40th day and described by the search coordinator, retired Air Chief Marshal Angus Houston, as the most expensive in aviation history.U.S. Naval personnel have said the drone could take up to two months to scour a 600 sq km area where the plane is believed to have sunk.The deep sea area now being searched, the Zenith Plateau, has never been mapped in detail because it is not in any country's economic zone.However the sea floor is likely covered in "foraminiferal ooze", a sludge formed by microscopic marine organisms, which would show up any large metallic object clearly, James Cook University marine geologist Robin Beaman told Reuters."A sidescan is very good at detecting the difference in the acoustic return of a hard object versus a soft, muddy sea floor," he said. "This is quite a good environment for looking for wreck debris, albeit deep."An air and sea search for floating debris continued on Wednesday, but Houston has indicated that will soon end.Up to 11 military aircraft, three civil aircraft and 11 ships would help in Wednesday's search, covering a total area of about 55,151 square km in rainy conditions.Authorities have targeted the remote stretch of ocean based on four acoustic signals they believe are from the plane's black box recorders.But they have not heard a "ping" for a week and with the batteries on the locator beacons now 10 days past their 30-day expected life, authorities have decided to stop searching using a Towed Pinger Locator and to use the Bluefin instead.(Additional reporting by Lincoln Feast in SYDNEY; Editing by)

Sub makes 2nd dive to search for Malaysian plane
By MARGIE MASON - APR 16,14-YahooNews


PERTH, Australia (AP) — As a robotic submarine dived into the ocean to look for lost Flight 370, angry Chinese relatives stormed out of a teleconference meeting Wednesday to protest the Malaysian government for not addressing them in person.The Bluefin 21 sub surfaced early for the second time in as many missions, this time after experiencing technical difficulties. It was sent back into the water after its data were downloaded but there's been no sign of the plane, according to the search coordinator.As the search continued, more than 100 relatives of Chinese passengers on the plane walked out of a teleconference meeting with senior Malaysian officials, an act of defiance over a lack of contact with that country's government and for taking so long to respond to their demands.The family members had gathered in a meeting room at a Beijing hotel where Malaysia Airlines had provided lodging and food. But they stood and filed out shortly before the call with Malaysia's civil aviation chief, Azharuddin Abdul Rahman, and others as it was about to start."These video conference meetings often don't work, the sound stops and it's constantly disrupted. Is that how we are going to communicate?" said Jiang Hui, one of the family members, after the walkout. "Do they need to waste our time in such a way?"Jiang said the Malaysian government had not met demands the relatives had presented to them weeks ago in Malaysia — an apology for the way they've handled the matter along with meetings with the Malaysian government and airline officials. They also have requested to sit down with executives from Boeing and Rolls-Royce, the manufacturer of the plane and its engines.The Boeing 777 vanished March 8 with 239 people on board while en route from Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia to Beijing. Radar and satellite data show it flew far off-course for an unknown reason and would have run out of fuel over the southern Indian Ocean west of Australia.A ship-towed device detected four signals underwater that are believed to have come from the airliner's black boxes shortly before the beacons' batteries died. The sounds helped narrow the search area to the waters where the Bluefin 21 is now operating.The U.S. Navy's unmanned sub cut short its first mission on Monday because it exceeded its maximum operating depth of 4,500 meters (15,000 feet). Searchers moved it away from the deepest waters before redeploying the sub to scan the seabed with sonar to map a potential debris field.On the ocean surface, up to 14 planes and 11 ships were searching a 62,000-square-kilometer (24,000-square-mile) patch of sea about 2,200 kilometers (1,400 miles) northwest of Perth on Wednesday. The surface search is expected to end soon as not a single piece of debris connected to the plane has been found.Investigators are also waiting on test results from an oil slick found about 5,500 meters (3.4 miles) from where the underwater sounds were detected.In addition to finding the plane itself, investigators want to recover the black boxes in hopes the cockpit voice and flight data recorders contain answers to why the plane lost communications and flew so far off-course before disappearing.___Associated Press writers Kristen Gelineau in Sydney, Rod McGuirk in Canberra, Australia and videojournalist Aritz Parra in Beijing, contributed to this report. ___Follow Margie Mason on Twitter at twitter.com/MargieMasonAP
