VIDEO: Malaysia missing plane search area is now the size of continental U.S.

Posted:

KUALA LUMPUR, Malaysia (CNN) - We're tracking the latest developments in the search for Malaysia Airlines Flight 370, now in its 11th day.

The area being searched now covers more than the area being searched now covers more than 2.24 millions square nautical miles (seven-and-a-half million square kilometers).

That's roughly the size of the continental U.S.

Thailand's military says it has radar evidence that backs up the belief that the plane did turn west, after it stopped communicating with controllers.

And the New York Times says the jetliner's course change was done by an on-board computer and quotes experts as saying whoever set the new course had significant knowledge of the aircraft.
