In a possible breakthrough into World’s biggest airline mystery-tragedy, China’s official news agency claims a Chinese ship that is part of the multinational search effort looking for the missing Malaysia Airlines plane has detected a “pulse signal” in southern Indian Ocean waters. The report says a black box detector deployed by the vessel, Haixun 01, picked up a signal at 37.5Hz per second on Saturday at around 25 degrees south latitude and 101 degrees east longitude.
The report said it was not established whether that the signal was related to the missing jet. The Australian government agency coordinating the search would not immediately comment on the report.
Meanwhile, Malaysia vowed on Saturday that it would not give up on trying to find the missing jetliner and announced details of a multinational investigation team to solve the aviation mystery, as the search for the plane entered its fifth week. MH 370, which was off to Beijing from Kaula Lumpur on MArch 8, 2014, has been missing since then.
