Malaysia plane: Aviation experts discuss search

Aircraft and ships have been searching an area in the southern Indian Ocean after Australia released satellite images of two objects that could be debris from a missing Malaysian airliner.

The Australian Prime Minister Tony Abbott told parliament that this was new and credible information, but Malaysia warned that the debris might not be from the missing plane, which disappeared 13 days ago with 239 people on board.

Keith Hayward of the Royal Aeronautical Society discussed the search with the BBC's George Alagiah.
