A U.S. Navy aircraft searching for surface objects traced by an Australian satellite has “not confirmed” any sighting of debris so far, a senior official said early Thursday.
The P-8 Poseidon plane is “on station” in the area of the Indian Ocean and will continue to search, Navy Lieutenant David Levy told NBC News.
“So far the P-8 is not getting any evidence at all," NBC News correspondent Kerry Sanders reported at 3:55 a.m. ET.
The sophisticated anti-submarine aircraft can scan an area of up to 10,000 square miles.
