A Chinese patrol ship hunting for the missing Malaysia Airlines flight MH370 detected a pulse signal in the south Indian Ocean Saturday, in a possible indicator of the underwater beacon from the plane’s “black box”.
The Australian-led joint agency coordinating the search said the signals were consistent with those of an aircraft black box. But they stressed there was no conclusive evidence linking the “ping” to the plane which went missing on March 8 with 239 people aboard.
A black box detector deployed by the vessel Haixun 01 picked up the “ping” signal with a frequency of 37.5kHz per second — the same as emitted by flight recorders — at about 25 degrees south latitude and 101 degrees east longitude, Xinhua said.
It also reported that a Chinese air force plane had spotted a number of white floating objects in the search area. AP
