Perth, Apr 17 (PTI) A mini-submarine deployed to locate the missing Malaysian plane’s wreckage on the floor of the Indian Ocean has completed a full 16-hour mission mission at its third attempt, authorities said today.

Two previous missions by autonomous underwater vehicle Bluefin 21, a US Navy probe equipped with side-scan sonar, to map the ocean floor were cut short by technical problems and deep water, without making any “significant” detections.
