Malaysia considering searching Bay of Bengal for MH370

Malaysian officials tell CNN they may send a ship to investigate claims the missing plane may be in the Bay of Bengal.

That's where an Australian company says it believes it saw plane wreckage a month ago.

Is GeoResonance on to something?

This comes as the U.S. underwater drone, the Bluefin-21, has only days left to search for the plane in the southern Indian Ocean.

That is, unless Australians and U.S. officials sign a new agreement to keep using the drone, which costs the Defense Department $40,000 a day to operate.

Bangladeshi navy ships search Bay of Bengal for traces of Flight 370

CNN's Richard Quest, Aviation Analyst Miles O'Brien and Aviation Attorney Arthur Rosenberg discuss whether it's a good decision to send assets to a new location when officials say they are "satisfied" with data that shows the plane is likely in the southern Indian Ocean, and not in the Bay of Bengal.

    I still think someone should go back to checking cell phone data. Any phones left on would have left an electronic paper trail. Also, what about the 20 people that worked for an radar cloaking firm that just happened to be on that flight.

    Without reading your article: why dont they send Bluefin down there? They are saying they dont know what technology this company used to scan 1000ft under the ocean floor but the company is not revealing their technology. They seem to make more sense than those 'Great Minds,'.
