Expert panel gathers to re-evaluate missing plane's data

Posted: Updated:
SYDNEY (AP) -- A panel of experts will re-examine all data gathered in a nearly two-month-old hunt for the missing Malaysia jet to ensure search crews who have been scouring a desolate patch of ocean for the plane have been looking in the right place.

Officials from Malaysia, Australia, and China met in the Australian capital on Monday to work out the next steps in the search for Flight 370, which will center around on a patch of sea floor in the Indian Ocean off Western Australia.  The area became the focus of the hunt after a team of analysts calculated the plane's likeliest flight path based on satellite and radar data.

Angus Houston, head of the search operation, said that data will be re-analyzed and combined with all information gathered in the search.
