On the eve of the first anniversary of the missing Malaysian flight MH370, Malaysian transport minister Liow Tiong Lai said that they are confident that they would find the missing aircraft. Tiong Lai added that the Malaysian authorities are not hiding any details about the missing flight.
The Malaysian flight from Kuala Lumpur to Beijing went missing on March 8, 2015 with 239 people on board. The Department of Civil Aviation of Malaysian will soon be releasing an interim report on the disappearance of the flight.
Australia is leading the search team which is struggling in the southern Indian Ocean. The search vessels are focusing on 60,000 sq kms priority zone. A budget of A$120m is jointly put up by Malaysia and Australia. Indonesia, Malaysia and Australia had announced earlier this week that they will be trying a new method of tracking the long-haul flights after the incidences of disappearance.
The trial system tracks the flight every 15 minutes an increase on the current 30 to 40 minutes. After the MH370 flight went missing, a major international search mission was launched, but no traces of the flight were found. The search vessels tried to track the pings from the black box, but then it vanished and could not be tracked later.
