While per this CBS News article, they are the closest to finding the plane as they have ever been because Malaysia Airlines Flight 370 searchers heard another possible black box ping from Indian Ocean.
The article states that, an Australian aircraft Thursday detected what may be the fifth signal coming from a man-made device deep in the Indian Ocean, adding to hopes that searchers will soon pinpoint the object’s location and send down a robotic vehicle to confirm if it is a black box from the missing Malaysian jet.
There were as many as 14 aircrafts circling the area trying to find any signs of the plane. The underwater search zone is currently a 500-square-mile patch of the ocean floor.
Malaysia Airlines Flight 370 has been missing for over a month, so let’s hope they can at least recover the black box soon and flight out what really happened.
