Missing Malaysia plane: Inside a cockpit simulator

The BBC's Rupert Wingfield-Hayes finds out how to change a flight path in a cockpit simulator.

A Malaysia Airlines flight from Kuala Lumpur to Beijing went missing on the morning of Saturday 8 March with 239 passengers and crew on board.

Malaysian officials say the plane was intentionally diverted and could have flown on either a northern or southern arc from its last known position.

More than 20 nations have been asked to help search for flight MH370, and evaluate radar and satellite data.
