France has informed the Malaysian authorities that new images of possible wreckage have been spotted in the ‘southeren corridor’ as more planes have joined the search for the missing Malaysia Airlines flight MH370.

Eight aircraft are now over the south Indian Ocean after China released images of potential debris.

Two specially equipped Chinese aircraft are now in Perth soon to be joined by two Japanese P3 Orions.

Sam LaGrone, is a U.S naval search and rescue analyst:
“When you do search and rescue operations, you usually have a very clear idea of where someone is. In this case you are looking at almost a quarter of the globe for where this airplane might be able to be.”

The Malaysia Airlines 777 disappeared on March 8 en route from Kuala Lumpur to Beijing with 239 people on board.

Relatives of those on board are in hotels in Malaysia and Beijing desperate for information.
