More signals heard in hunt for MH370.

PERTH (TAP) - An Australian search vessel has detected two sets of signals that might originate from "black box" flight recorders from the Malaysia Airlines jetliner (MH370) missing for more than a month, Angus Houston, Australian official co-ordinating the search for the plane said on Wednesday.

Houston said that the Australian naval vesselOcean Shield picked up the two signals on Tuesday, and that an analysis of two sounds detected in the same area on Saturday showed they were consistent with a plane's black boxes.

"What we're picking up is a great lead," Houston told a news conference in Perth. "I'm now optimistic that we will find the aircraft, or what is left of the aircraft, in the not too distant future."
