Pentagon official on search for Flight 370: We're no closer to finding the plane

(CNN) – The search area for Malaysia Airlines Flight 370 has narrowed in the past few days, and the U.S. has contributed some of its most advanced air craft and technology to aid in the search.

But searchers are still no closer to finding the plane than they were a few days ago, says Pentagon Press Secretary Rear Admiral John Kirby.

"The weather has made it even more hard to do," said Kirby. "I don't think we're any closer to finding where the air craft is at this point."

Earlier Tuesday, Australian officials put some perspective on the search area.

"We're not searching for a needle in a haystack. We're still trying to find where the haystack is," said Australia Vice Chief of Defense Mark Binskin.

Kirby went further.

"We're trying to find the farm that the haystack is on right now," he said.
