Twitter response from French submersible owner regarding MH370
Earlier today, I had tweeted 3 different organizations which own deep sea submersibles DSV Alvin, Shinkai 6500 and Nautille respectively. After that, I had received a reply from Nautille's owner, Ifremer, regarding the missing MH370 airplane.
Regarding my conversation with Ifremer, I first asked that whether the organization will be able to send Nautille, which is famous for examining the wreck of RMS Titanic, to the Indian Ocean to search for the missing airplane.
After some time, I received a reply from Ifremer, which stated that permission have to be granted to them from the authorities before they will be able to send the famed submersible to the Indian Ocean. They also added that several weeks will be needed to transport the submersible to join the search operation.
So, from here, I hope that the French government will be able to grant them permission to join the MH370 SAR operation. Besides that, I also hope that owners of DSV Alvin and Shinkai 6500 will be eventually obtain permission to join the operation.
