Airbus scrambled to search for teen solo sailor Abby Sunderland

By Andy Rice 11 June 2010

The nearest ship is about a day away, so Australia has sent an Airbus on a four hour flight to try and spot – and hopefully make radio contact with – Abby Sunderland. The teenager manually activated two distress beacons, one on her yacht and one on her person, but no details are available beyond that. The failure of a water-activated distress signal to go off could mean her vessel has not capsized, but that will only be known later today. Sydney Morning Herald
