Royal Australian Air Force (RAAF) Airborne Electronics Analyst Sergeant Scott Mulgrew prepares a smoke buoy for launch onboard a Royal Australian Air Force (RAAF) AP-3C Orion as they fly over the southern Indian Ocean participating in the search for missing Malaysian Airlines flight MH370, in this handout picture released by the Australian Defence Force March 26, 2014. The search for the Malaysian airliner that disappeared 18 days ago resumed on Wednesday in the southern Indian Ocean, looking for debris that may unlock the mystery of why the plane ended up in frigid seas thousands of miles off course. A dozen aircraft from Australia, the United States, China, Japan and South Korea will scour the seas some 2,500 km (1,550 miles) southwest of Perth in the hunt for potential debris, the Australian Maritime Safety Authority said. Bad weather on Tuesday forced the suspension of the search.
