Could the search for Flight 370 be the most expensive in history?

After three weeks of false leads, there's still no concrete sign of Malaysia Airlines Flight 370.

And now, there's been a huge shift in where searchers are looking for Flight 370. Five of 10 planes sent to the new zone say they have spotted objects from the air, but what those objects are isn't known yet.

The cost of searching for Flight 370

If and when the Malaysian aircraft is found, the price tag may be substantial.

CNN's Tom Foreman reports on what the search for Flight 370 could ultimately end up costing.

    I hope others think this is a good idea.

    In watching TV reports on Flight 370, it seems this idea might speed up search for lost aircraft. I suggest airlines come up with an international decal that can be applied to large sections of an airplane. Something large enough to be seen by planes flying over or eyeball with binoculars to determine whether it is trash or a plane, That way you can be more sure it is worth asking ships to come in and also speed up recovery. If not from a plane they can abandon searching in that area.
