(Newser) – This time, it's not a satellite image: An Australian civilian search aircraft has spotted debris that could be from the missing Malaysian Airlines jet, reports Australia's News Network. "Yesterday one of our civilian search aircraft got visuals on a number of objects in a fairly small area in the overall Australian search zone," said Australian Prime Minister Tony Abbott. The plane spotted "a number of small objects, fairly close together within the Australian search zone, including a wooden pallet." The sighting follows two possible satellite images of the downed jet this week—one from China and one from Australia. (Read more Malaysia Airlines crash stories.)
