  1. Ship Detects Signals Again in Missing Plane Hunt

    Teams involved in the long and frustrating search for Malaysia Airlines Flight MH370 got a major boost last night when an Australian ship again detected double pings consistent with black box recorders. The sounds raise hope that the search — now the costliest in aviation history — is closing in on the spot in the Indian Ocean where the plane carrying 239 passengers is believed to have gone down. “I think we’re looking in the right area,” said the head of the search.
