Orions find missing fishing boat
An Air Force Orion has found a Samoan fishing boat that was reported missing 10 days ago, about 160km west of Savai'i, Samoa.

The Agnui I had encountered electrical problems and its engines would not start.

All the boat's six crew were well, and the Orion dropped a package containing water and a radio.

Two Orions had searched 80,000 square nautical miles in an operation organised by the Rescue Co-ordination Centre in Nadi, Fiji.

The Air Force said the Agnui I would remain drifting until a rendezvous was made with its sister vessel, Agnui II.
