Sub Completes 90% of Search for Missing Plane

Posted: Updated:
Officials in Australia say a robotic submarine has now scanned more than 90% of a 120-square-mile search area, but has found nothing of interest in the search for the missing Malaysian plane.
 
The next phase of the search is likely to be decided in a week. It's expected to involve using more powerful sonar equipment, similar to what found the wreck of the Titanic in 1985.
 
Officials also said today that the material that washed ashore in southwestern Australia doesn't appear to be from the missing plane.
 
The Australian Transport Safety Bureau looked at detailed photos of the material -- apparently sheet metal with rivets -- and determined that it is not related to the plane.    (AP)
