    MH370: Malaysia declares flight disappearance an accident

    Sorry to post here if not appropriate but the MH370 thread is closed and this information will be important and of interest to some;

    The Malaysian government has officially declared the disappearance of Malaysian Airline flight MH370 an accident and says there were no survivors.

    No trace of the Beijing-bound aircraft has been found since it disappeared on 8 March 2014.

    Officials say that the recovery operation is ongoing but that the 239 people onboard are now presumed dead.

    The plane's whereabouts are still unknown despite a massive international search in the southern Indian Ocean.

    The declaration on Thursday should allow compensation payments to relatives of the victims.

    It also clarifies some mis-information expressed yesterday on the chat that the search for MH370 has been called off- it hasnt (or that it was shot down by the US). We dont need that sort of rubbish, particularly here on FR24 (chat or forum). It is simply a required step as stated above to allow families of victims to pursue compensation which is their right to do so.

    You may turn out to be correct but I'm not convinced of it or that we need these unsubstantiated 'opinion pieces' here on the forum (or on the chat). Where is the evidence for your conclusion?

    And there's the problem for Mike, the moderators and/or Admin, I didn't want to start a 'speculation' or 'conspiracy theory' thread here. Let's please stick to what the authorities know or are reported to know.

    ICAO recommends aircraft to report position every 15 minutes in response to MH370 dis

    Aircraft will have to report their location every 15 minutes under a proposal from the International Civil Aviation Organisation (ICAO).

    The ICAO recommendation, made at a meeting of its member states in Montreal on Wednesday, follows the disappearance of Malaysia Airlines flight MH370 in March 2014. The aircraft that operated the flight, a Boeing 777-200ER with registration 9M-MRO, is yet to be found.

    ICAO said the recommendation was “performance-based and not prescriptive”, meaning airlines would be able used any available and planned technologies they believed was suitable to meet the 15-minute reporting standard.

    ICAO Council President Olumuyiwa Benard Aliu said the new standard was an “an important first step in providing a foundation for global flight tracking”.

    “Through an expedited process, it will now be sent to our member states before the end of the month for formal comment and we’re anticipating its adoption by Council as early as this fall,” Aliu said in a statement.

    Malaysia is set to resume the search for missing aircraft MH370

    MALAYSIA says it is in no rush to kickstart the abandoned search for MH370 despite three companies offering to continue to look for the missing plane.

    THREE companies have offered to continue the abandoned search for MH370, but Malaysia says no decision has been made on whether they will be given the go ahead.

    The West Australianreports an offer by US company Ocean Infinity is believed to be favoured by the Malaysian government after a two-year search failed to find any wreckage.

    The plane disappeared on March 8, 2014, on the way from Kuala Lumpur to Beijing, with 239 people on board, and the Australian-led search for the aircraft was suspended in January.

    Last month the company offered to take up the search.
