Almost unbelievably, the search for missing Malaysian Airlines flight MH370 now extends to covering one-tenth of the planet’s surface.
Taking in two vast air corridors, crossing Thailand, Laos and Kazakhstan to the north and from Indonesia way out in to the Indian Ocean to the south, 26 countries are now involved in the search. Australia leads the search in the southern areas.
Given that the plane could possibly have disappeared anywhere along either of the red lines indicated in the infographic below, we can appreciate the scale of the task in locating one small plane across such a vast expanse of the planet.
To compound the problem, of course, it is still entirely possible that the plane isn’t located anywhere along these air corridors.
