Search for missing MH370 officially called off

Malaysia has officially called off its search for missing airline MH370, deciding not to extend the search beyond next week.

American firm Ocean Infinity has been carrying out the search on Malaysia’s behalf, promised a $93 million reward if they found the plane by the end of June.

The plane disappeared in March 2014 with 230 people on board, including six Australians.

Chairman of Strategic Aviation Solutions Neil Hansford tells Ben Fordham the recovery operation has gone on for too long.

“It shouldn’t have gone on this long.

“Certainly, there was no way in the world Australia should have been on the hook.”

Mr Hansford says the plane won’t be found but an inquiry should be launched into Australia’s role in the investigation.

“I think it’s fair that there be a Senate inquiry or a royal commission into the whole delivery of the Australian Transport Safety Bureau who ran this thing.

“I think it was overwhelmed throughout by the politics in Malaysia.”
