MOSCOW (Sputnik) — Malaysia Airlines flight MH370, en route from Kuala Lumpur to Beijing, disappeared from radar screens on March 8, 2014, less than an hour after takeoff. There were 227 passengers and 12 crew members on board the Boeing 777.
"It’s as likely on the last day [of the search] as on the first that the aircraft would be there. We’ve covered nearly three-quarters of the search area, and since we haven’t found the aircraft in those areas, that increases the likelihood that it’s in the areas we haven’t looked at yet," Martin Dolan was quoted as saying by The Guardian.
Last week, the debris that washed ashore was found in Mozambique and subsequently sent to Australia. Malaysian Transport Minister Liow Tiong Lai said on Twitter that there was "high possibility" that the debris belonged to the Boeing 777 but warned against "undue speculation" as the information still needed verification.
