Suspension of air search today due to weather conditions

Media Release
22 April 2014

Planned air search activities have been suspended for today due to poor weather conditions in the search area as a result of Tropical Cyclone Jack.

It has been determined that the current weather conditions are resulting in heavy seas and poor visibility, and would make any air search activities ineffective and potentially hazardous.

The 10 ships involved in today's search will continue with their planned activities.
