(Flight MH370) Australia's promising lead was fishing gear
(03-31 18:49)

Orange objects seen by an Australian search plane pilot are just fishing gear, Australian officials say, admitting another false lead.
It was earlier claimed to be a promising lead.
The Australian Maritime Safety Authority said the objects had been analyzed.
Spokesman Jesse Platts said “they have nothing to do with the missing [Malaysia Airlines Boeing 777] flight, a media report in Australia said.
An Australian P-3 Orion search plane detected at least four orange objects in waters west of Perth on Sunday and were described by Orion pilot Russell Adams as the most promising lead in the search so far, the website news.com.au reported.
