After days of unsuccessful searching by 26 countries for the missing Malaysia Airlines plane, China has put its largest rescue ship into action.
The Haixun 01 ship - along with eight other vessels - will cover an area of 300,000 square kilometres as part of its mission.
The plane went missing on 8 March with 239 people on board.
