Maps a bonus of MH370 search
THE painstaking search for the vanished Malaysia Airlines flight 370 has produced a trove of incredibly detailed maps of vast expanses of deep ocean. Scientists and amateur enthusiasts have been gifted unprecedented mapping of the southern Indian Ocean, which was the site of one of the largest marine searches ever conducted. The Boeing 777 disappeared en route from Kuala Lumpur to Beijing on March 8, 2014 with 239 people on board and its whereabouts is one of the greatest aviation mysteries.
The search data has revealed in never- before- seen detail underwater volcanoes, enormous ridges and deep fault valleys across 710,000sq km of remote ocean.
