A French Satellite with images as recent as Friday has also shown images of possible debris that could be related to flight 370. Malaysia received the new satellite images from the French authorities on Sunday March 23rd which show potential objects in the vicinity of the southern corridor. Malaysia immediately relayed these images to the Australian rescue co-ordination centre.
Just one day earlier on Saturday March 22nd, images from a Chinese satellite identifing an object in the Indian Ocean measuring 22.5 metres long and 13 metres wide were released. Whilst authorities were reluctant to say anything until they had confirmation, experts believed this could well be part of the 777s wing.
The Chinese media reported that the object was sighted just 120 kilometres from where Australia first sighted possible debris in the search area a few days earlier. The exact location of the latest French satellite images in relation to the earlier finds is yet to be released.
Seventeen days into the search, civil and military aircraft from Australia, New Zealand, Malaysai, India, South Korea, Norway, Indonesia, the US, China and Japan are all taking part in the massive search for the Malaysia Airlines plane. Unfortunately the search area is today expected to experience poor weather which may hamper efforts somewhat.
