Search For Flight 370 Goes Underwater
Friday, April 04, 2014
Two ships — one British, one Australian — are now looking underwater for Malaysia Airlines flight 370, almost four weeks after the jet disappeared.
Air chief marshal Angus Houston, who is coordinating the search off of Australia’s coast, said the British Royal Navy survey ship HMS Echo and the Australian navy supply ship Ocean Shield started to trace a 149-mile line of ocean where the plane is most likely to have gone down.
Time is running out to find the plane. Flight 370′s black box flight recorders, which emit a signal, are expected to be running low on batteries.
Wall Street Journal reporter Andy Pasztor joins Here & Now’s Robin Young to discuss this latest development in the search for the missing jet.
