the plane was on its way from surabaya to singapore when the pielot climbed to avoid clouds. there were thunderstorms in the area around the time the aircraft disappeared. this is temperature third incident involving a malaysian air lyle the malaysian airlines flight from march that's still missing. that from bay jing carrying 239 passengers and crew. then there's mh 17. it was shot down over the ukraine this summer. today, more questions and heart ache from those who want to know what happened to their loved ones. >> reporter: there are 47 friends and family here. they're sequestered from the media. we did see a few of them earlier and they were, as you can
6:04 am
imagine, very distraught. they're looking for answers trying to find out exactly what happened. officials know where and when it dropped off radar. that should give them a better idea, but we're going on 14-hours now since missing and still no sign of the plane: guys back to you. >> heartbreaking. katie, thank you. >> mike bettis has been monitoring the weather there. >> it's not unusual. the suddenly trade winds produce stormy weather. you can see that on the satellite map. all between where it was expected to land in singapore and the flight track would take it through the seas. the problem is we have thunderstorms for recovery efforts. we know the pilot asked to change altitude. but the storm tops were at 50,000 feet. unfortunately, we get a lot of turbulence all the way to the
6:05 am
top of the clouds. even if it was changing elevation, it may not have made any difference whatsoever. it's an unfortunate situation. they do their best to get around these things. >> greg fizen, good to see you. we see it all the time especially in the summertime here in this part of our country. pilots deviates around these thunderstorms. what is the danger of a plane flying as cruise level flying into thunderstorms? >> one of the big issues with these types of thunderstorms that blossom 30,000 40,000 50,000 feet is the activity within the thunderstorm. the up and down draft. the potential for hail and icing conditions. those types of winds and gusty wind conditions that could compromise the structure of an airplane, it creates moderate to severe turbulence, in some cases, extreme turbulence. we saw this with air france 47.
6:06 am
you may not be able to maintain control of the airplane. >> you mention the plane that left brazil to france. that was outside of radar coverage. in this case this plane was under full radar coverage at the time so if it fell from the sky or even broke up wouldn't radar have continued to pick up a hit of at least metal falling? >> well in these dense thunderstorms, you can attenuate the signal. you may not have a good reflective signal and then all sorts of electrical signals from the aircraft. the transponder and radio communications were working up until a point but then lost both radio and the transponder in this particular instanls. that could indicate an electrical problem on board the aircraft whether it was prior to
6:07 am
a loss of control. >> and of course weather is the obvious thing we tend to look at. but you as an investigator know you approach these things in an agnostic way, any possibility is still alive until you can rule it out. what others things might cause a plane to disappear from radar? >> the best evidence we have and no we have no real investigative activity taking place until we find the damage and get a recorder but from an investigative standpoint what kind of weather did this have prior to departure, what was the flight plan that was planned and why was it they didn't see this or at least monitor it better flying through this convergence zone? you have to have a way to fly out, a plan "b" if you will and
6:08 am
then what the crew may or may not have had to outclimb this thunderstorm. if we're talking 50,000 foot con consecutivecon vektive activity they should have been able to get help from the airline dispatch folks. that will be a big issue, what in fact may have been the decision maker for this true. i don't see anything other than that because we don't have a lot of information but it looks like weather will be a primary factor that will be investigated by the teams from indonesia, singapore, and malaysia. >> we appreciate your analysis. thank you so much. a greek ferry caught fire overnight. betty has more on that. >> a dramatic rescue effort under way off the coast of grease. passengers and crews trapped aboard a burning ferry this
