Search for MH-370 will Resume

Vietnamese military personnel prepare a helicopter for a search and rescue mission for the missing Malaysia Airlines flight MH370 off Vietnam's southern coastline

Ocean Infinity has offered to search free-of-charge unless it finds artifacts from the crash, which Malaysian Transport Minister Liow Tiong Lai called, "No find, no fee", according to The Malaysian Insight. The payment stands at 30 million US dollars for the subsequent 10,000 and 50 million USA dollars for another 10,000 square km.

The ship could complete the search within three or four weeks, and cover up to 60,000 sq km in 90 days, or four times faster than earlier efforts, said Plunkett.

The vessel being used in the search, the Seabed Constructor, had docked in Durban over the New year for cleaning, before departing for its mission.

Expressing similar sentiments, V. P. R. Nathan, whose wife Anne Daisy was on the aircraft which disappeared en route from Kuala Lumpur to Beijing on March 8, 2014, said it was hard to come to terms without knowing what had happened to the families and their flight.

The Seabed Constructor search vessel, which departed from the South African port of Durban, is expected to reach the southern Indian Ocean by January 17, according to Ocean Infinity's Chief Executive Oliver Plunkett.

Ocean Infinity can use up to eight Autonomous Underwater Vehicles (AUVs), capable of operating in water depths from 5 meters to 6,000 meters. "We agree with the search strategy of starting with the 25,000 sq km and proceeding north".

"Scientists have done more work on the ocean's drift modelling after pieces of wreckage turned up on Reunion Island in Africa".

Trump doubts Oprah will run for president
Comedian Sarah Silverman was one of many tipping the U.S. celebrity to run for president, writing: "Oprah/Michelle 2020". Actor Josh Gad wrote: "Can we all agree that Oprah deserves a planet named after her".

"From there, we assessed the right place to search for MH370".

The disappearance of the aircraft en route from Kuala Lumpur to Beijing in March 2014 with 239 people on board ranks among the world's greatest aviation mysteries.

But relatives of the victims -70 percent of whom are Chinese nationals - are appealing to the WA government and the Federal Government to shelve it.

Australia, China and Malaysia ended a fruitless $A200 million search of 120,000sqkm in January past year.

It means that payment will be made only if the company finds the wreckage. However, there were no signs of the aircraft. This has a number of Autonomous Underwater Vehicles with technology which is said to allow them to search far more quickly than the underwater craft involved in the $133 million search coordinated by the Australians until the start of past year.

In its final report, released in October 2017, investigators for the Australian Transport Safety Bureau said it was "almost inconceivable" that authorities were no closer to knowing its ultimate fate.
