Scientists Say A Plane Has Been Found
Cedar Rapids, IA (CBS 2/FOX 28) - An Australian company says it has found a plane in the Bay of Bengal.
Right now, they're not sure that its missing flight 370 but they do say it's a plane.
The scientists began using high-tech Spectral Imaging Technology to search for the plane nearly seven weeks ago.
They say the technology has picked up remains of a plane about five thousand kilometers away from the initial search area - near Bangladesh.
The technology looks for elements like aluminum, titanium and copper - things that, together, tell scientists they've found an aircraft.
Scientists say they did a routine sweep of that whole area before flight 370 disappeared and in that study, they didnt find any elements that would belong to a plane.
