Experts continue to review data to define MH370 search zone

29 May 2014: An expert satellite working group set up to support the search for missing Malaysia Airlines flight MH370 continues to review and refine the available data to determine where the aircraft most likely entered the water.

In a statement by the Australian-led Joint Agency Coordination Centre confirming the end of the initial underwater search, it said the expert group is currently reviewing all existing information and analysis to define a search zone of up to 60,000 square kilometres along an arc in the southern Indian Ocean.

The findings of the review will be made public in due course, added the agency.

The Australian Transport Safety Bureau (ATSB) had advised that the search in the vicinity of the acoustic detections made in early April could now be considered complete and in its professional judgement, the area could now be discounted as the final resting place of MH370, reported the JACC.
