Malaysia Airlines Flight 370: New search area, rugged deep-ocean terrain

Australian authorities have shifted the search area for Malaysian Airlines Flight 370 hundreds of miles to the northeast of the previous search zone.

The old search area was extremely unpredictable, according to CNN's Chad Myers. The area had shifting currents and even a chain of underwater volcanoes.

Myers is back OutFront to take us under water with what obstacles teams will face as they comb the new search zone looking for Flight 370.

    is it possible that for reasons that haven t been said that that the flight m370 could have been accidently shot down not knowing that the commmunication and other electronics on board were not working and not knowing the plane went into others(?) airspace and nobody is saying they did it.because it could not tell anyone it changed course?

    As a result of searching for the lost plane, I believe search time would be better utilized if international community could come up with a logo or decal to be placed on all planes in number of areas needed so parts of plane could be identified and show the difference in it and trash, That way planes could go on to the next area and also avoid calling in ships to pick up trash.
