45 days on still no sign of Malaysia Airlines Flight 370

Updated 21 April 2014, 13:24 AEST

The search for the missing Malaysian Airlines plane has reached a crossroads.

The unmanned submarine sonar search for the aircraft will be completed this week AND so far, eight separate underwater missions have failed to locate any sign of wreckage.

Neither has there been a confirmed aerial sighting or recovery of debris from the ocean surface.

It's now 45 days since the aircraft went missing on flight from Kuala Lumpur to Beijing with 239 passengers and crew onboard.

A high level decision is expected this week on whether to call in additional, heavier manned submarines that can search even deeper.
