Sonobuoy detects possible Flight 370 black box ping

A search plane has detected another possible ping that could be from the Malaysia Airlines Flight 370's black boxes.

How deep is deep? Imagining the MH370 search underwater

The signal was picked up by a sonobuoy dropped into the ocean from the plane.

CNN's David Mattingly reports on how crucial these sonobuoys are to the search.

    In all of my years, I have never seen a more embarrassing job of reporting "over and over and over and over...." so called "breaking news" on Erin Burnett's program. For several weeks, she has had breaking news that was nothing more than a repeat of numerous other breaking news segments that reported on the most inane, meaningless and embarrassingly absurd speculations in an attempt to make more of the story than anyone knew. Shame on CNN for an extraordinarily shoddy job of reporting. You have been a bad joke throughout this tragedy. Pete Rhein

    Could a plane deviate from radar intentionally, land, remove black boxes, dump them in remote spot, and secure plane in remote place for further terrorism use?
