Aussie PM on flight MH370: “confident that we know the position of the black box”

Search and rescue officials in Australia are confident they know the approximate position of the black box recorders from missing Malaysia Airlines Flight MH370, Australian Prime Minister Tony Abbott says.

At the same time, however, the head of the agency coordinating the search said that the latest ”ping” signal, which was captured by a listening device buoy on Thursday, was not related to the plane.

”We are confident that we know the position of the black box flight recorder to within some kilometres,” Abbott said in a speech in the Chinese commercial capital Shanghai.

”Still, confidence in the approximate position of the black box is not the same as recovering wreckage from almost four and a half kilometres beneath the sea or finally determining all that happened on the flight.”

I think the whole world wants to know what happened.

At least the location the plane went down, and the flight path to get there, is now fairly well established.
