A US-based exploration firm is set to begin hunting for the whereabouts of the missing plane's wreckage.
Exactly what happened to Malaysia Airlines Flight 370 after it took off from Kuala Lumpur International Airport on March 8, 2014 still remains one of the most enduring mysteries in aviation history.

Despite undertaking an extensive search covering 46,332 sq miles, costing $160 million and lasting 1,046 days, investigators from Australia, China and Malaysia ultimately failed to find the wreckage.

Now in a renewed bid to get to the bottom of the mystery, US-based exploration firm Ocean Infinity has launched a new search on a "no cure, no fee" basis, meaning that it will only receive payment if the missing plane is actually found.

The vessel 'Seabed Constructor' reportedly left the South African port of Durban on Tuesday to begin searching a region near Australian waters covering 25,000 square kilometers.

The team will have a window of opportunity of around 90 days to locate the plane's wreckage.

The items found are parts of flyingcontrol surfaces, like flaperons, flying control surfaces generally have a honeycomb structure internally, for strength and lightness, this also makes them buoyant. The debris found has been brought to the locations by currents, currents that tie in with where they think the Aircraft probably went down.

Crossing finger that they will find something... and not something shredded and putted in place to save face.

How can you look for a plane that was abducted by aliens?

Taking parts, putting them down on purpose to make a good story while 'f'inding'' them... or doing that to shot down conspiracy stuff.

Not likely, Aircraft parts are serial numbered and have well-kept records of life, usage and service intervals.

They have enough time for forgery you know... they searched in an area for so long and found nothing. Yeah it's a needle in a hay stack but to save face... i think they can do a ''miracle'' and stop the inquiry, lawsuit, etc by founding what they need to find, whatever if it's the plane or a forgery.

Where and how are they going to get the correct serial numbers?

Paranoia maybe but i just said a possibility. If the plane is elsewhere and their search zone was flawedfrom the beginning it would be an incredible embarrassment for the family involved and also for all the time and money spent at the wrong place. I would be pleased that the story end with a true finding but with so much time in evaluation of the data and searching done, i have some doubt. If they want to put an end to the story to save face, it will be with the helpof a lot of guys whoprobablyhave access to the maintenance record and information from Boeing.
