New satellite images released on Wednesday morning revealed that a debris field in the South Indian Ocean consisting of 122 objects may be connected to Malaysian Airlines Flight 370 which is presumed to have gone down in that vicinity.
A Malaysian official said that the new images, taken on Sunday about 1,600 miles off the Southwest coast of Perth, Australia, are near other previously discovered objects that investigators believe could be the remains of the doomed airline.
“Some objects appeared to be bright, possibly indicating solid debris,” ABC News reported.
MH370 went missing on March 8 with 239 passengers on board. On Monday, the Malaysian government announced that, in spite of investigators’ inability to locate the plane’s remains, satellite images suggest that the plane crashed in the South Indian Ocean.
