First light and the desperate search for MH370 resumes: 29 planes, 21 ships and six helicopters hunting 'debris' of missing plane spotted in Indian Ocean

The exhaustive search operation for two large objects spotted by a British satellite has been bolstered by extra military and commercial vessels and much clearer weather, as officials scramble to cover the massive 600,000 square-kilometre search area some 2,500 kilometres off the coast of Perth. Five military aircraft including two Royal Australian Air Force P3 Orions were dispatched this morning on the four-hour flight to the search zone.
