(Flight MH370) Another signal picked up today set for analysis
(04-10 20:00)

Searchers engaged in a race against time to detect more fading transmissions from the missing Malaysia Airlines Boeing 777’s flight data recorder, picked up a possible fifth signal today.
The Perth, Australia-based Joint Agency Coordination Centre said the latest “ping’’ was detected in the afternoon today by an Australian air force P-3C Orion surveillance plane. It had dropped dozens of sonar buoys into the Indian Ocean search zone.
“The acoustic data will require further analysis overnight, but shows potential of being from a made-made source,'' JACC chief Angus Houston said in a statement.
The Australian ship Ocean Shield, bearing a US Navy towed pinger locator, is now focused on a far smaller area of the Indian Ocean 2,280 kilometers northwest of Perth where it picked up two more signals Tuesday.
Those transmissions matched a pair of signals logged over the weekend.—AFP
