Malaysia Airlines Flight 370 is still missing. Even as the search area has expanded, experts say the window of opportunity to find any sign of the plane has been closing quickly. Becky spoke to Rick Burgess, a former P-3c Mission Commander and managing editor of Seapower Magazine, who estimated that there are between three and four days left to finish the search. "From there," he said, "I don't see much hope."

Becky asked Burgess about the debris spotted in the South Indian Ocean.  In relation to this possible lead, Burgess said "This is the first optimism I've had with this whole incident."

He also explained the capabilities of the search teams, the challenges posed by the weather, and the remote location of the search area.  See the full interview above.
