MH370: The Search Continues
A new search for MH370 has been initiated by a former official involved in the initial search for the missing aircraft following new information that the wreckage could be about 1,200 miles west of Cape Leeuwin, Western Australia.
An independent group of researchers recently found new evidence that indicates the missing plane could have ended up 70 nautical miles either side of the target area in the southern Indian Ocean. Part of the new evidence also includes a piece of Boeing 777 debris believed to have belonged to MH370 that washed up on a beach in South Africa last August which also led researchers to believe that the plane was in an uncontrolled dive.

Peter Foley, who initially led the early investigations into the missing aircraft seven years ago, called for a new inquiry based on the new information he received from the independent group of researchers.
As it stands, 33 pieces of suspected or confirmed debris from MH370 have been found in Mauritius, Madagascar, Tanzania, and South Africa but the most important piece of the puzzle, the black box, remains missing. Unfortunately, even if the black box is recovered, chances are the data recorded in it may be lost forever as the average lifespan of the black box lasts only 2 years.
