(CNN) - Newly-discovered satellite photos may give scientists a fresh clue about the possible location of Malaysian Airlines 370.

The four satellite photos show man-made objects on the water shortly after the plane vanished, the Australian Transport Safety Bureau ATSB said on Wednesday.

The loss of passenger jet MH370 is one of the world's most famous, and troubling, aviation mysteries.

CNN aviation correspondent Richard Quest offers his view on the images and what they mean for the search. 

MH370 disappeared on March 8, 2014, while carrying 227 passengers and 12 crew members.
