Once again Royal Australian airforce planes head out from this small airbase in western Australia to join the search for the Malaysia airliner jet. China has also sent out substantial forces to look for debris from flight MH370, which vanished shortly after takeoff from Kuala Lumpur 18 days ago. Heavy rain and wind on Tuesday forced the suspension of the search. But as the weather improves it's hoped that some wreckage may be found soon to help solve the mystery of why the plane veered thousands of kilometres off course. Officials are now sure the jet crashed in the southern Indian Ocean. Australia, the country closest to the search zone, has played a major role in the search. In Canberra politicians observed a minute of silence to pay tribute to the 239 passengers on board. (SOUNDBITE) (English) AUSTRALIAN PRIME MINISTER TONY ABBOTT SAYING (PART OVERLAID WITH SHOT 3, 4 AND 5): "I move that the house records its deep regret at the tragic loss of life that resulted from the disappearance of the Malaysia Airlines flight MH370 and expresses its sincere condolences, together will all Australians to the families and loved ones of the six Australians and other passengers and crew that are presumed to have died. Now Madam Speaker based on the accumulation of evidence the Malaysian government has declared that MH370 was lost in the southern Indian Ocean and that all onboard have perished. A considerable amount of debris has been sighted in the area where the flight was last recorded. Bad weather and inaccessibility has so far prevented any of it from being recovered. But we are confident that we will be. Madam Speaker we mourn all those 239 passengers and crew." There have been numerous sightings of debris but none have been confirmed as coming from the missing jet. Until wreckage is found these relatives visiting parliment will find it hard to accept that their loved ones are dead.
