One passenger takes the only known photo of Flight 17, another records video before taking off. A woman who lost her brother on MH370 has now lost her stepdaughter on MH17.

It was the most promising lead in the search for Flight 370, but now investigators say those underwater pings did not come from the missing plane's black boxes. Those pings helped shape the search zone and set the path for the underwater sub. So where does the search go now? Anderson got the latest from Rene Marsh, aviation correspondent Richard Quest and analyst David Gallo, who co-led the search for Air France Flight 447.
Investigators looking for Flight 370 had little information to work with when they determined the missing plane likely crashed into the Indian Ocean off the coast of Perth, Australia. Now scientists and engineers are questioning everything from the satellite data to those pings heard deep underwater. They say Flight 370 may be nowhere near the current search zone, and it might not even be in the Indian Ocean. Ari Schulman wrote an extensive piece about this in the Atlantic. Anderson spoke with him, along with CNN Aviation Analyst Miles O'Brien and CNN Safety Analyst David Soucie.
After two months of searching, thousands of hours in the air and millions of square miles of ocean examined, there is still no sign of wreckage from Flight 370. The man in charge of finding the missing plane says it is time to go back and take another look at all the data. That includes those pings, that may or may not be from Flight 370's black boxes. Anderson discussed all of this with CNN safety analyst David Soucie and former Transportation Department Inspector General Mary Schiavo.
Malaysian authorities released their preliminary report on the disappearance of Flight 370 today. It is already raising questions about wasted time and wasted opportunities when the plane first vanished. Rene Marsh takes a look at what's in the report and what's not.
Anderson broke down what's in the Malaysian report with aviation analysts Miles O'Brien and David Soucie, along with aviation correspondent Richard Quest and David Gallo, who was a co-leader of the Air France 447 search.

Bangladesh dispatched a pair of ships to the Bay of Bengal, where the company GeoResonance believes it spotted a plane underwater. The company believes it found the wreckage of a commercial airliner, and they alerted crews searching for Flight 370. The Bay of Bengal is thousands of miles away from the search zone off the coast of Perth, Australia. Anna Coren visited GeoResonance to find out why the company is so sure about its findings.
Anderson discussed this the technology with CNN aviation analysts Miles O'Brien and David Soucie, along with former Transportation Department Inspector General Mary Schiavo.
An Australian company is urging investigators to look for Flight 370 in the Bay of Bengal, thousands of miles away from the current search zone off the Australian coast. Scientists working for GeoResonance say they are not sure if they found the missing Malaysian Airlines jet, but they believe they did find a plane. Miguel Marquez has the latest on the findings GeoResonance says search officials are ignoring.
Anderson discussed the science behind these images with CNN analyst David Gallo, who co-led the search for Air France 447 and CNN aviation analyst David Soucie.
The Bluefin-21 sonar sub has nearly finished its search without spotting any sign of Flight 370. It has been seven weeks without solid answers about what happened to the missing plane and the 239 people on board. In the absence hard facts, alternative theories are popping up. Some of them are more plausible than others. Randi Kaye takes a closer look.
Anderson discussed what is being said about Flight 370 with Aviation Correspondent Richard Quest and Jonathan Kay, author of "Among the Truthers: A Journey Through America's Growing Conspiracist Underground."
It has been seven weeks since Steve Wang's mother disappeared on Flight 370. He is raising concerns that crews may not be searching in the right spot, and the Malaysian government is not sharing enough information with him and other families. Mr. Wang told Anderson, "We are asking questions to help them find the plane, but they said 'stop it.'"
Demands for answers are growing louder from those with loved ones who were on board Flight 370. CNN's Richard Quest tried to get some of those answers when he sat down for an exclusive interview with Malaysian Prime Minister Najib Razak. Richard pressed him about why military planes were not sent to investigate when Flight 370 turned off course. Prime Minister Razak also said he is not ready to declare Flight 370 and its passengers lost. Sarah Bajc's partner Philip Wood was on board Flight 370. She says her jaw hit the floor after hearing the Prime Minister's comments.
