When a 777 lands in water its emergency locator transmitter is supposed to automatically broadcast a distress signal to satellites. That never happened with Flight 370. Anderson takes a closer look at an ELT with David Gallo,who co-led the search for Air France Flight 447, aviation analyst Les Abend, former U.S. Department of Transportation Inspector General Mary Schiavo and safety analyst David Soucie.
It's morning in Australia and planes are in the air searching for what might be our first glimpse of Flight 370. They are focusing on objects spotted days ago by satellites. The aircraft were originally designed during the cold war to detect enemy submarine and hostile ships. For this mission they are racing to find any sign of the missing 777. Kyung Lah is in Bullsbrook, Australia with the latest.
Satellite images have changed the course of the Flight 370 search and captured the world's attention. No one is sure what they actually show, but officials say it could possibly be debris from the missing plane. And we’ve learned there is high-resolution satellite images, as well. Jim Sciutto has the new developments.
Tonight on AC360 Randi Kaye visits the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution to get a first hand look at REMUS. It stands for Remote Environmental Monitoring UnitS, and it was used to help locate the wreckage of Air France Flight 447. It was also used to detect mines in the Persian Gulf and leaks in underwater tunnels. The Navy says it can do the work of up to 16 divers, and go places where they cannot.
Check out a behind the scenes look at Randi's report.
