"today in the bay's" tracie potts live in washington with the very latest details from overseas. good morning, tracy. >> good morning, everyone. the latest is that those flights in and out of israel that were grounded from the u.s. by the faa, we're waiting to find out if they'll lift or extend that restriction. the faa can make the announcement today before noon. in just a few hours. there are a lot of people waiting at ben gurion airport outside tel aviv and airports around the united states since the airlines themselves and faa decided 24 hours new york flights in or out after a rocket landed a mile from that airport. this morning, lufthansa extending their ban through tomorrow. the faa may decide the same in the next few hours. secretary of state kerry went into israel today, landed at the airport but on a military plane which was not covered by the
faa's ban. he's got meetings with the israelis, palestinians, united nations, trying to bring about that cease-fire. the state department says this could take some time. before meeting with the united nations secretary-general there today, secretary kerry did say they're making some progress but he declined to go into detail. >> all right. escalation continues. live from washington this morning. developing news out of ukraine this morning. two ukrainian military fighter jets shot down not far from the debris field of malaysia airlines flight 17. kris sanchez joining us now. this is complicating the searches for victims and clues as to what brought that plane down. i would be so afraid now, as an investigator, even to fly in. >> right. investigators can't even access that main crash site, it's still around control of the rush be separatists. but what we know so far about the two ukrainian fighter jets they were shot down 20 miles from the main crash site.
they are jets that can carry a pilot and co-pilot and at this point no one is claiming responsibility. this complicates what is a difficult recovery, an investigation at the debris field six miles long. before that, before those two ukrainian fighter jet were shot down, bodies of flight 17 victims loaded on to the ukrainian military planes for the first leg of their journey home. it was a brief ceremony at the airport, as soldiers carried caskets on to a plane and then another plane carrying bodies of some of the other victims was expected to head to the netherlands today. it is a national day of mourning there. now, in all the bodies of 200 people are making their journey home but 98 remain at the wreckage site and the australian prime minister fears they may never be recovered. >> it's quite possible that many bodies are still out there in the open, in the european
summer, subject to interference and subject to the ravages of heat and animals. that is the predicament in which we found -- we find ourselves. >> monitors from the organization for security and cooperation in europe visited a site with wreckage from malaysia airlines flight 17 today, but pro-russian separatists remain in control of the main crash site. now they have turned over the jet's black boxes to malaysian expert but was it takes 24 hours to recover data, longer than that to analyze it. russia denies its supporters in involved in the shooting down of the passenger plane but the u.s. says there's plenty of evidence that they were behind it and that it was likely a mistaken hit on what rebels thought was a transport plane. again new york one taking responsibility yet for those two ukrainian military fighter jets shot down. >> interesting to see. you're working to find out more. but keep us updated, because that expands that story quite a
bit. kris sanchez, thank you. new video to show you this morning of a frightening situation for passengers aboard a southwest chicago-bound plane. the plane had to make an emergency landing in columbus, ohio last night after smoke started coming from the cargo hold. the plane landed. the emergency slide deployed and 49 crew -- 49 passengers, 5 crew members managed to jump out safely the plane is out of service until inspectors can figure out what caused the smoke. 5:46 now. senate committee will meet in washington to talk about what to feed the country's children while at school. congress approved standards for school lunches in 2010, they require districts to provide more fresh fruits, veb vegetabld whole grains. last may a separate committed voted some districts to opt out. schools that do not have enough money can get a waiver from the federal government. >> they're trying to feed more
