Malaysia Airlines CEO: Flight 370 was carrying lithium-ion batteries in cargo hold

Malaysian officials now confirm that Flight 370 was carrying lithium-ion batteries in the cargo hold.

The batteries are commonly used in laptops and cell phones, but they've been known to overheat and
spontaneously explode on other flights.

So could these batteries have anything to do with the missing jet?

Inside the NAVYs P-8 Poseidon: Can the sub hunter find missing Flight 370?

CNN has learned more about the actions of the pilot and co-pilot of Malaysia Airlines Flight 370 leading up to moments the plane vanished two weeks ago.

U.S. investigators say they found evidence that files were deleted from the pilot's simulator after February 3rd.

Malaysian authorities had originally said the items were deleted before that date.

Britain's The Telegraph newspaper reported Friday it had obtained a transcript of the final communications between the Malaysia Airlines flight cockpit and air traffic controllers.

Purported transcript: plane's final minutes of communication normal

The report showed what's being described as routine conversations about what runway to use and at what altitude to fly.

Included in the search is a high-tech U.S. Navy surveillance aircraft called the P-8 Poseidon.

The military is not allowing camera crews on that plane.

But our David Mattingly got exclusive access to that exact same plane.

When will Malaysia Airlines Flight 370 be found?

It's been 15 days since Malaysia Airlines Flight 370 went missing and nearing the third day of a search  Australian authorities say could be related to the missing aircraft.

The bulk of the search for Flight 370 is concentrated in the Southern Indian Ocean, where a commercial satellite photographed objects that Australian authorities call the best lead yet on where the missing plane might be.

The massive search area is more than 1,400 miles southwest of Australia. So far, the search has turned up nothing but water.
