Signals detected by Chinese ship consistent with MH370 black box, confirms Australia

Perth: The Australian-led joint agency coordinating the search for the missing Malaysian jetliner says electronic pulse signals reportedly detected by a Chinese ship in the southern Indian Ocean are consistent with those of an aircraft black box.

Earlier on Saturday a Chinese patrol ship Haixun 01 searching for the missing Malaysian passenger jet MH370 discovered a pulse signal with a frequency of 37.5kHz per second in south Indian Ocean waters on Saturday, reported Xinhua.

According to the latest update from Australia's Joint Agency Coordination Centre (JACC) that is coordinating the multinational search operation, 10 military planes, three civil jets and 11 ships will assist in Saturday's search for the missing jet.

The Australian defence vessel Ocean Shield and HMS Echo of the British navy continued underwater search operations.

Both the vessels, using a Towed Pinger Locator from the US Navy, Friday began the underwater search for emissions from the black-box pinger from flight MH370.

"The Australian Maritime Safety Authority has determined a search area of about 217,000 sq km, 1700 km northwest of Perth," the JACC said in its Saturday update.

"Today's search area will focus on three areas within the same vicinity," it said, adding that the weather forecast for Saturday's search was fair, with possible showers in the search area.

Malaysia Airlines flight MH370 vanished mysteriously about an hour after taking off from Kuala Lumpur shortly after midnight March 8.

The Boeing 777-200ER was scheduled to land in Beijing the same day. The 227 passengers on board included five Indians, 154 Chinese and 38 Malaysians.

Despite extensive scouring of the remote southern Indian Ocean area by planes and ships off the coast of Perth, where the plane is believed to have crashed, no trace has been found.
