MH370 search looks for debris breakthrough in new area

Searchers scoured a new area of the Indian Ocean for Malaysia Airlines Flight MH370 Saturday hoping to salvage possible debris from the doomed jet after several hopeful sightings.

"We should not underestimate the difficulty of this work, it is an extraordinarily remote location," he told reporters Saturday.

Japan to bid farewell to 747 'jumbo'

Japanese plane buffs will say a fond farewell to the "jumbo jet" this month as the Boeing 747 makes its final scheduled flight in the country. The two-deck carrier, loved for its broad-shouldered look, will ferry holiday-makers and aviation enthusiasts on an All Nippon Airways flight from Naha, in Okinawa, to Tokyo's Haneda airport on March 31. The jumbo jet -- 70 metres (229 feet) long and 60 metres wide -- was first introduced to the country by Japan Airlines (JAL) in 1970 and became a workhorse on both domestic and international routes.

Mike MacSween's left arm stands out against his army-green flight suit. The Royal Canadian Air Force pilot, on exchange with the Royal Australian Air Force for the last year and a half, is one Canuck playing a part in the massive effort to find any debris from the plane that vanished nearly three weeks ago.
