Search resumes for missing airplane

ANOTHER COMPLICATION:The search area covers a chain of undersea volcanoes, which means the ocean floor there is constantly being reshaped by magma flows

On Tuesday, they made public more details of the data used to conclude that the plane was lost.

It said the last complete contact between a satellite that was “pinging” signals to the flight came at 8:11am Malaysian time, with another “partial” signal eight minutes later.

In related news, a US law firm yesterday said it has started “multi-million dollar” legal proceedings against Malaysia Airlines and Boeing over flight MH370, in what could mark the start of an expensive legal battle over the lost plane.

Chicago-based Ribbeck Law Chartered International said it filed a court petition in Illinois on Tuesday, seeking documents pertaining to possible design or mechanical defects or conduct by the airline that may have led to the disaster.

“We believe that both defendants named are responsible for the disaster of Flight MH370,” the firm said in a statement released in Kuala Lumpur.

The legal action was filed on behalf of Januari Siregar, “a lawyer who lost his son in the terrible crash,” the firm said. It gave no further details on the plaintiff.
