Malaysian Ailines MH370 search vessel docks in Perth, Australia

8 February 2018

Malaysian Airlines MH370 search vessel sailed into Western Australia today for refuelling and maintenance. The vessel is on its search mission in the southern Indian Ocean for any signs of the missing aircraft. Malaysia agreed in January to pay U.S. firm, Ocean Infinity, up to $70 million if it finds the plane within 90 days.

Ocean Infinity's vessel carries eight "autonomous underwater vehicles", or submersible craft.  It will scour the seabed with scanning equipment for information to be sent back for analysis.
