Search resumes for missing Malaysia Airlines Flight 370

Graphic News

January 17, 2018 -- U.S. seabed exploration company Ocean Infinity is resuming the search for missing Malaysia Airlines Flight 370, almost four years after the plane mysteriously disappeared over the Indian Ocean.

The company has been commissioned by the Malaysian government on a “no-find, no-fee” basis to find the wreckage or black boxes of the airliner within three months. The contract is worth between $20 million and $70 million depending on where the plane is found.

The missing plane, a Boeing 777, was carrying 239 people en route to Beijing from Kuala Lumpur when it disappeared from radar screens in March 2014. The initial deep-sea search – jointly conducted by Australia, China and Malaysia – was called off in January 2017.

The only traces of the plane that have so far been found are fragments of wreckage washed up on the western shores of the Indian Ocean.

NEW GRAPHIC NEWS - a new website for a new era.

28 years ago — April 2, 1991 — the original Graphic News launched using a precursor to today’s websites that used email technology. These enabled infographics to be delivered electronically around the world over telephone lines. What was possible was very limited - It took 10 minutes for a 100K file to download.

Since then delivery speeds and website technology have moved on. The new website will offer the best online experience possible now, adding many new features (and offering new opportunities for the future), but still enabling existing users to select and download infographics and enjoy the distinct brand of visual journalism that is Graphic News.

Over the coming weeks I will give further information. Please contact me if you have any questions. Fiona Roberts, froberts @
