Real-Time Global Flight Tracking On The Horizon

The International Civil Aviation Organization held two days of meetings in Montreal this week to discuss flight tracking, which has come front and center since the disappearance of Malaysia Airlines Flight 370.

The Wall Street Journal’s Andy Pasztor joins Here & Now’s Jeremy Hobson to discuss these issues.
