Another Signal to be Analyzed in Missing Plane Search

Posted: Updated:

Teams looking for Malaysian Airlines Flight 370 are trying to narrow the 500-square-mile search zone in the Indian Ocean before sending a robotic submarine down to create a sonar map of the seabed in hopes of finding a debris field. 
 
Today, an Australian aircraft detected a fifth signal that could be coming from one of the plane's black boxes. The Australian air force has been dropping sonar buoys into the water near where four earlier sounds were heard. 
 
Officials say the signals need further analysis before anything can be confirmed.

The Boeing 777 vanished March 8 while flying from Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, to Beijing with 239 people on board. The focus of the search changed repeatedly. It began in the South China Sea, then shifted toward the Strait of Malacca to the west, and then to several locations in the southern Indian Ocean as an analysis of satellite and radar data indicated the plane veered far off course for a still-unknown reason.
