Missing Malaysian airliner saga: Search could take one year

Posted on

The leader of the hunt for the missing Malaysian airliner MH370, Angus Houston says, a full search of the suspected crash area could take up to a year.

Mr. Houston said, he was confident an “effective search” would find the plane.

Officials from Australia, China and Malaysia will meet next week to discuss the ongoing search.

A report has revealed a four-hour gap between MH370’s disappearance and the start of a search operation.

The preliminary report, from Malaysia’s Transport Ministry, also revealed that air traffic controllers did not realize the plane was missing until 17 minutes after it disappeared off radar.

The plane, carrying 239 people, disappeared over the south China sea as it flew from Kuala Lumpur to Beijing.
