Aircraft and ships involved in Malaysia jet search

Australian Prime Minister Tony Abbott meets members of Malaysia's Air Force currently based at RAAF Base Pearce in Bullsbrook, near Perth, Australia, Monday, March 31, 2014. Abbott said the search for Malaysia Airlines Flight 370 is "an extraordinarily difficult exercise" but that it will go on as long as possible. Abbott said Monday that although no debris has been found in the southern Indian Ocean that can be linked to the plane missing for more than three weeks, the searchers are "well, well short" of any point where they would scale the hunt back.
