Australia Dismisses Possible Plane Wreckage Claim

30 April 2014

The Australian agency leading the search for the missing Malaysian jet has dismissed a claim by a resource survey company that it found possible plane wreckage in the northern Bay of Bengal. The location cited by Australia-based survey company GeoResonance is thousands of kilometers north of a remote area in the Indian Ocean where the search for Flight 370 has been concentrated for weeks, and the Joint Agency Coordination Center, which is heading up the search off Australia’s west coast, said in a statement Tuesday that the location specified by GeoResonance was not within the search arc derived from satellite data.—AP
