Major shift in Flight 370 search area

Search planes are now looking for Flight 370 in a new stretch of ocean. Australian authorities announced the search zone is now 684 miles northeast of the original one, closer to Perth. They say it is based on analysis of the plane's last known radar contact that suggests the 777 did not fly as far south as previously thought. Anderson spoke with U.S. Navy Commander William Marks who is looking for Flight 370 aboard the USS Blue Ridge.

Anderson discussed what was behind this shift with Aviation Correspondent Ricard Quest, Safety Analyst David Soucie, Aviation Analyst Miles O'Brien and David Gallo, who co-led the search for Air France Flight 447.
