Search for missing Malaysia MH370 plane called off

The end of the fruitless hunt after almost three years means the world’s greatest aviation mystery may never be solved.

The search for the missing Malaysia Airlines flight MH370 has been called off, nearly three years after the plane disappeared with more than 200 people on board.

Crews have finished their deep-sea search of a stretch of the Indian Ocean without finding a single trace of the Boeing 777, which was travelling from Kuala Lumpur to Beijing in March 2014 when it disappeared.

There were 239 people on board, including 12 members of crew. Most of the passengers were from China.

The Joint Agency Co-ordination Centre said the £133m search had been officially suspended after crews finished their fruitless trawl of the 46,000-square mile zone west of Australia.

In a joint statement the transport ministers of Malaysia, Australia and China said: “Despite every effort using the best science available, cutting edge technology, as well as modelling and advice from highly skilled professionals who are the best in their field, unfortunately, the search has not been able to locate the aircraft.

“Accordingly, the underwater search for MH370 has been suspended. The decision to suspend the underwater search has not been taken lightly nor without sadness.”

The end of the hunt means the world’s greatest aviation mystery may never be solved.

In July 2015 part of the aeroplane’s wing was found on Reunion Island, and so far more than 20 objects either confirmed or believed to be from the jet have washed ashore on beaches in Mauritius, Mozambique, Madagascar and Tanzania.

      My dear Cookie and Dave,Sometime in my journey of life I experienced the comfort of many timeless traditions that I thought were not necessary when I was in my late teens and early twenties. I am sorry I skipped Bethany’s funeral.You were both part of my college education that gives meaning to the proverb not to let your studies interfere with your education. I always enjoy the chance meetings we share infrequently.God is watching you.I am blessed by you.Eldon Esau

      I believe avoiding processed foods is the first step to help lose weight. They can taste beneficial, but packaged foods have very little nutritional value, making you consume more to have enough power to get throughout the day. For anyone who is constantly taking in these foods, transitioning to whole grains and other complex carbohydrates will aid you to have more energy while feeding on less. Great blog post.

      Hmmmm, back in the day the Mission was mostly Irish and German, with a dash of Polish. Around the 80′s the Latino gangs started moving in and there was quite a bit more crime and violence. If you prefer that, I hear Oakland is the next urban mecca where I’m sure you can find a nice crime-infested place to live where you can easily get yourself robbed or shot. Me, I’ll stay here and enjoy the change.

      I remember reading Allison’s post and thinking, “She is so right.” I don’t usually keep myself out of the picture on purpose out of any fear of how I look. (Thankfully I’m usually pretty content with my appearance.) Instead, for me, it’s that I’m always the one taking the pictures and I feel so needy and self-absorbed to hand off the camera and say, “Please take one with me in it.” I need to do it more, though, because from each trip there’s usually a couple of token pictures of me and that’s it. … And that’s not enough. Thanks for the heads up on Allison’s upcoming appearance on Katie Couric. I will be sure to set my DVR!

It’s important to have your own opinion, it’s just not so good to be nasty about it, even worse to do so online. It just doesn’t do anything positive for all involved.

      Yet another thing I would like to state is that as opposed to trying to match all your online degree tutorials on days and nights that you end work (considering that people are tired when they get back), try to have most of your classes on the week-ends and only a few courses in weekdays, even if it means taking some time off your saturdays. This is fantastic because on the week-ends, you will be a lot more rested along with concentrated for school work. Thx for the different tips I have mastered from your weblog.

But of course, that merely reinforces (rather than extends) Holger’s point, since he’s UK-based too.

Quanto ci parli con i “machi”? Che fai per loro? Agli altri maschi che conosci che dici?Niente?
