Nearly three years to the day since the disappearance of Malaysian Airlines flight MH370, a new attempt has been made to revive the search for one of the world’s greatest aviation mysteries.
A total of 33 pieces suspected to be from the plane have been found so far, including parts of the wings and tail, in Reunion, Mozambique, South Africa, Mauritius and Tanzania.
Families of those on board the flight have decided to launch an independent search. They hope to raise US$15 million to search north of the previous search area, which focused on deep-sea exploration off the coast of Australia.
The fund-raising is expected to begin as soon as all data is analysed from the previous efforts to find the plane and when the governments involved confirm they will not relaunch investigations themselves.
