French satellite finds possible Malaysia flight debris field
Malaysian Defense Minister Hishammuddin Hussein said Wednesday that a French satellite found 122 objects in the Indian Ocean that could potentially be a plane debris field related to the missing Malaysian Flight MH370.
The images, which were captured Sunday by France-based Airbus Defence and Space, show objects ranging from 3 to 75 feet in length. The potential debris field stretches across a 155 square mile area of the ocean in a region southwest of Australia.
Malaysia Airlines Flight MH370 has been missing since March 8 with 239 passengers. On Monday, Malaysian Prime Minister Najib Razak announced that satellite data showed the plane most likely crashed in the southern Indian Ocean.
