2 Indian P-8Is Scouring Bay Of Bengal For MH370

FILE PHOTO / P-8I OVER ANDAMAN ISLANDS
2 Indian Navy Boeing P-8I long range maritime reconnaissance aircraft are currently on station over a designated search area in the Bay of Bengal looking for Malaysia Airlines Flight MH370. This will be the platform's first operational deployment since the TROPEX14 exercise when it first got a chance to stretch its legs in a simulated scenario. The two P-8Is, along with a US Navy P-8A, bring to bear perhaps the most advanced surveillance kit for the job. The aircraft fly their missions amidst reports that the MH370 was almost definitely hijacked. Will post pictures and updates later today.

India should first get her house in order and then undertake such missions. Probably this plane is the only indian navy weapon that works.
