ATSB Propose new search area close to seventh arc

From the Guardian:
https://www.theguardian.com/world/20...nexplored-area

"The Australian authorities leading the search for MH370 have a “high degree of confidence” that the plane’s wreck is not to be found in the expanse of Indian ocean they have spent more than two years searching."

"New analysis of the satellite data, combined with drift analysis, has identified the most likely point that MH370 hit the water as being close to the so-called “seventh arc”, north of the current search zone. Experts have identified a new area of approximately 25,000 sq km as “the area with the highest probability of containing the wreckage of the aircraft”, given the 110,000 sq km that have been eliminated."
