HMAS Success Not Giving Up on Spotting MH370 Debris


The crew of HMAS Success have not wavered in their efforts in the search for missing Malaysia Airlines flight MH370 in the vast southern Indian Ocean.


The ship has maintained round-the-clock lookouts in the hope of finding debris which could be connected to the missing aircraft and provide some clue to its final location.

Able Seaman Boatswains Mate Marc Chandler acknowledges the task is difficult, but remains positive about the mission.

“Trying to spot debris in the ocean is not easy and requires a lot of focus and concentration—but we keep going in the hope we will find something that will lead to locating MH370,” he said.

Success was the first ship deployed to search for the missing flight and has since been joined by HMA Ships Toowoomba and Perth, Australian Defence Vessel Ocean Shield and DMS Maritime Vessel Seahorse Standard.

Vessels from the United States, United Kingdom, China and Malaysia have also deployed, demonstrating the depth of international co-operation involved in the operation.
