Fourth ship to join search for Malaysia Airlines 370

Fourth ship to join search for Malaysia Airlines 370
A fourth ship with specialized underwater sonar equipment will join the search for a Malaysia Airlines jet 10 months after it vanished under mysterious circumstances off the west coast of Australia, an official said on Monday. The ship Fugro Supporter was on its way to the search area after conducting trials off the Indonesian island of Bali, Australian deputy PM Warren Truss said in a statement.

“Fugro Supporter has been equipped with a Kongsberg HUGIN 4500 autonomous underwater vehicle,” the statement said. “The AUV will be used to scan those 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 on March 8 last year during a flight from Kuala Lumpur to Beijing.
