(CNN) – One critical piece of equipment on missing Malaysia Airlines Flight 370 that could solve this whole mystery are the flight data and cockpit voice recorder, the so-called "black box."
CNN Victor Blackwell got a close-up look at one from a Boeing 777.
(CNN) – Search crews will be back over the southern Indian Ocean looking for any sign of the doomed Malaysia Airlines Flight 370, with time running out before the flight data and cockpit voice recorder, the so-called black box, stops "pinging."
Searchers continue to scour the area with high tech military equipment, as well as good old fashioned eyeballs out a window, but how do they figure out where to look and what's the priority?
CNN's Tom Foreman reports.
(CNN) – There is one piece of equipment on Malaysia Airlines Flight 370 that could be key to solving this whole mystery: the flight data and cockpit voice recorder, the so-called "black box."
But time is very much of the essence, because the recorder comes with an expiration date of about 30 days of battery life.
New York (CNNMoney) – To the long list of unanswered questions about Malaysia Airlines Flight 370, add one that can't be answered with search planes, black boxes or satellite data. How much money does the airline owe its passengers' families?
International and contract law provide some answers, but the true figures will likely be settled when insurance claims and lawsuits are filed by relatives of the flight's 239 victims. Some attorneys, citing their past work on plane crashes, say the total for each passenger could vary from $400,000 to $10 million.
(CNN) – New satellite images provided by a French defense firm show 122 objects floating in the southern Indian Ocean, not far from other satellite sightings that could be related to missing Malaysia Airlines Flight 370, the Malaysian transport minister said Wednesday.
But how promising are these latest images? Sea operations specialist Tim Taylor and CNN aviation analyst Mark Weiss weigh in on CNN's "The Lead with Jake Tapper."
