Australia Finds MH370 Black Boxes - report

PERTH, Western Australia- Australia has found the black boxes of Flight MH370, over a month after the Malaysian Airlines 777 went missing, with 239 passengers and crew from 14 nations

Prime Minister Tony Abbott will announce the news to the world Friday April 11, local time in China, where the PM was travelling on an official visit.

Perth based aviation journalist Geoffry Thomas broke the news on twitter.
239 people perished when MH370 entered the Indian Ocean on the morning of March 9, 2014.

The Flight is believed to have run out of fuel before crashing into the ocean, over 2,500km from the coast of Western Australia.

Yesterday, a PC3 Orion RAAF jet heard pings from the Ocean Floor, two days after Australian Navy vessel the Ocean Sheild also detected signals far off the Western Australian north-west coast.

The news will bring some initial closure to the families of victims, who have endured weeks of speculation over the fate of the Boeing airline.

This is breaking news updates soon

Update: Abbott statement to Australian media moments ago. PM Abbott said in China: “We have very much narrowed down the search area and we are very confident the signals are from the black box.”

Abbott noted he would speak to the President of China before he made more comment.

Updates to come soon.... Come back for more.

Update 2: Abbott speaks again: "We are confident that we know the position of the black box flight recorder to within some kilometres."

 "But confidence in the approximate position of the black box is not the same as recovering wreckage from almost 4.5 kilometres beneath the sea or finally determining all that happened on that flight," he added.

"I grieve with all the bereaved, especially the family and friends of the 154 Chinese victims, and I offer them the assurance that Australia will not rest until we have done everything we can to provide comfort and closure," he said.

Confirmed: MH370 Pilot spoke last words

CNN reports pilot was last person to speak on radio before MH370 changed course, before disappearing from civilian radar.

Confirmed: Pilot was the person who said "Goodnight, Malaysian airlines Flight 370."

According to CNN reporter Nic Robertson, 5 pilots have all listeners to air traffic recordings and "can identify the last person to speak on radio - who said goodnight, Malaysia 370 at 1.19am" Was the pilot of the 777z

CNN also said that after the aircraft flew over the Malaysian peninsular it disappears from radar view.

Then in reappeared 120 miles north-west on military radar.

They believe this disappearance correlates with the plane dropping to 4000-5000 feet above sea level, to possibly avoid a commercial airplanes in that area.

PERTH, Western Australia- An Australian PC-3 Orion has picked up a possible signal from MH370 over the defined search zone in the Indian Ocean, off the north-west of Western Australia.

 The "possible signal" by the Australian Air Force plane was detected in the vicinity of the Ocean Shield Navy vessel. The Ocean Shield has previously picked up 4 "man made" signals from the bottom of the Indian Ocean since last week.

The pings were relayed to the aircraft via buoys that had been previously dropped into the zone where authorities believe MH370's wreckage lied.

Australia's lead in the search for MH70, Angus Houston, said the signals heard by the PC-3 Orion included "acoustic data (that) will require further analysis overnight but shows potential of being from a made-made source."

More from the Australian authorities: The Chief Coordinator of the Joint Agency Coordination Centre, Air Chief Marshal Angus Houston (Ret'd), has confirmed that whilst conducting an acoustic search this afternoon a RAAF AP-3C Orion aircraft has detected a possible signal in the vicinity of the Australian Defence Vessel Ocean Shield.

 “The acoustic data will require further analysis overnight but shows potential of being from a made-made source,” Air Chief Marshal Houston (Ret'd) said.

Press Release

 “I will provide a further update if, and when, further information becomes available.”
