If the Bluefin-21 can't find Flight 370… maybe these subs can?

Nearly the entire search area has been scanned by the Bluefin-21, and there is no sign of Flight 370. But there are other unmanned submarines and submersibles waiting in the wings that may be able to find the missing plane. Gary Tuchman looks at these subs.

How can anyone survive a flight in the wheel well of a plane?

A California teen managed to expose a serious airport security flaw while pulling off a near medical miracle. He apparently stowed away in the wheel well of a flight from California to Hawaii. The 767 reached 38,000 feet during the five hour flight. Gary Tuchman went inside a wheel well to learn more.

Is it possible to survive a trip like that? Anderson asked Dr. Robert Schoene, a professor at University of Washington Medical School.

Searching below the surface

The Flight 370 search zone is now about 16,000 square miles. That section of the Indian Ocean can reach depths close to three miles. Anderson takes a look at some of the high tech tools that are being used to find the source of those pings.

Gary Tuchman reports on why we may never know about some of the assets the U.S. Military is using to search for Flight 370.

New pings detected, but no wreckage spotted

Searchers are reporting another possible new ping in the search for Flight 370, but so far there is no sign of any debris from the missing plane. Gary Tuchman looks at the kind of wreckage that can be found, and what it might say about how Flight 370 may have gone down.

Anderson discussed some of these scenarios with former Department of Transportation Inspector General Mary Schiavo, CNN safety analyst David Soucie and David Gallo, who co-led the search for Air France Flight 447.

How deep is the Flight 370 search zone?

After picking up this latest round of pings, authorities say they are optimistic they will find Flight 370. Investigators are narrowing the search zone. If the missing plane is there, it could be 13,000 feet below the surface in one of the most challenging environments on earth. Anderson has a closer look.

Gary Tuchman reports on a company that is using cutting edge technology to map the ocean floor.

How powerful are the satellites looking for Flight 370?

Satellites are playing a key role in the search for Flight 370. But so far, they have not been able to spot any debris from the missing plane. Weeks into the search, there are questions about why satellites have not been able to provide more accurate information. Gary Tuchman got an up close look at how they work.

Holding onto hope after the Washington landslide

Rescuers are not giving up hope of finding more landslide victims alive in the rubble north of Seattle. After all, they’ve found a dog buried alive. Gary Tuchman has that incredible story and those of victims’ families.

Anderson discussed the search with volunteer firefighter Jeff McClelland.

Web Exclusive: Testing an emergency locator transmitter

There is an intense search for Flight 370 going on right now in the Indian Ocean. If the plane crashed into water, there should have been a distress signal leading to the scene. So far, there is no evidence that ever happened. That signal, in theory, would have come from the plane's emergency locator transmitter. Gary Tuchman took a closer look at how an ELT works in air and under water.

Searching for landslide survivors and praying for miracles in Washington

Search crews are working as quickly as possible in very dangerous conditions following the Washington landslide. The mud in some areas resembles quicksand and buried dozens of buildings. Washington's Governor described the area as suffering "100% devastation." Gary Tuchman has the latest on the search.

Rescuers race to find victims after Washington landslide

It has been days since rescuers in rural Washington pulled any survivors from the deadly landslide. A chunk of mountain gave way and took just seconds to turn a town into a massive debris field. Up to 24 people are dead and there are many more who are reported missing. Gary Tuchman has the latest from Darrington, Washington.

Some landslide survivors waiting for word on their loved ones have already resigned themselves to the worst. George Howell has the story.
