Car carrier looking for possible remains of missing aircraft MB 370
On Mar 20, 2014, at 8 a.m. GMT the "Hoegh St. Petersburg" reached the area in the Indian Ocean where debris of the missing Boeing 777 of the Malaysia Airlines were thought to have been detected. No object likely to have come from flight MH370 has been recovered at this stage. The "St. Petersburg" travelled back and forth along the route in the hope of finding what has been identified as debris, though it did not have any capacity to retrieve objects from the sea. The largest piece was measuring about 24 meters. The second object was about 5 metres long. The car carrier was on its way from Madagascar to Melbourne when it got a request from Australian authorities to assist in investigating the objects spotted by satellite four days ago around 2,500 km southwest of Perth. The car carrier would assist as long as needed according to Hoegh Autoliners. No confirmed wreckage from Malaysia Airlines flight MH370 has been found since it vanished from air traffic control screens off Malaysia’s east coast early on Mar 8, less than an hour after taking off from Kuala Lumpur for Beijing.
