IN FLIGHT - MARCH 29: Wing Commander Rob Shearer looks through binoculars on the flight deck of a Royal New Zealand Air Force P-3K2 Orion aircraft searching for missing Malaysian Airlines flight MH370 on March 29, 2014 over the southern Indian Ocean. Chinese ships trawled a new area in the Indian Ocean for a missing Malaysian passenger jet on Saturday, as the search for Flight MH370 entered its fourth week amid a series of false dawns over sightings of debris. The Malaysian airliner disappeared on March 8 with 239 passengers and crew on board and is suspected to have crashed into the southern Indian Ocean.   (Photo by Jason Reed-Pool/Getty Images)

Again and again, the spotting of potential Malaysia Airlines wreckage has turned out to be nothing. Today, more than three weeks in, four orange objects in the water were identified by Australia as fishing equipment having "nothing to do with the missing flight." "If this mystery is solvable, we will solve it," assured Australian Prime Minister Tony Abbott. "The intensity of our search and the magnitude of operations is increasing, not decreasing."
