Ron Brown is a pilot with more than 30 years of experience. He has flown the Kuala Lampur to Beijing route countless times and knows the Boeing 777 inside and out. He has seen the Chinese satellite photos of possible debris from Flight 370. He shares his impressions with Anderson.
Chinese satellite images released today are offering families some hope that the plane their loved ones were on may have been spotted. But in the days since Flight 370 disappeared there have already been reports of oils slicks and debris that proved to be false. Anderson discussed today's developments with MIT professor of aeronautics and astronautics John Hansman and CNN's Richard Quest.
There were already dozens of ships and aircraft looking for Malaysia Airlines Flight 370 over an area of 27,000 nautical miles. Satellite photos show possible wreckage within 13 miles of the location where the plane lost contact. Tom Foreman takes a look at what resources are now being deployed in the area.
U.S. Navy Commander William Marks is on board the USS Blue Ridge, which is helping with the search for Flight 370.
Chinese authorities released satellite images which they say may show debris from Malaysia Airlines Flight 370. The location is within 13 miles of the spot where the plane lost contact and the photo was taken about a day and a half later. Pamela Brown has the latest.
Anderson discussed this latest development with Mary Schiavo, a former Inspector General for the U.S. Department of Transportation and David Gallo, who was a co-leader on the search for Air France 447.
Malaysian authorities are facing a fierce backlash from the families of those missing on Flight 370. Jim Clancy is in Kuala Lampur and reports on inconsistencies coming from the top of the Malaysian government. He says officials there are "intent on exhausting every lead."
Jim Sciutto is in Washington with the latest on reports authorities may have data transmitted by Flight 370's engines.
It is still too soon to tell whether Chinese satellite images really offer a first glimpse of Malaysia Airlines Flight 370. For the loved ones still waiting for word, it is less about finding a plane and more about finding mothers, fathers, children and friends.
Anderson Cooper goes beyond the headlines to tell stories from many points of view, so you can make up your own mind about the news. Tune in weeknights at 8 and 10 ET on CNN.
