The search for missing Malaysia Airlines plane flight MH370 continues, with attention currently focussed on the debris spotted floating in the southern Indian Ocean. In light of this discovery, the US Navy has deployed its newest patrol aircraft – the P-8A Poseidon – in order to use its high-tech sub-hunting equipment to search below the surface of the ocean.
The Poseidon is a surveillance and reconnaissance aircraft, which can drop sonobuoys in to the sea in order to listen for pingbacks coming from the missing plane’s black boxes.
