The Australian navy has deployed divers in the southern Indian Ocean in the search for debris from missing Malaysian Airlines flight MH370.

A series of photos released on Tuesday show fast response craft from the Australian ship Ocean Shield assisting in the complex search operation.

The hunt for the missing jet is on track to cost hundreds of millions of dollars, becoming the most expensive search in aviation history with 26 countries contributing planes, ships, submarines and satellites.
