The announcement that the missing Malaysia Airlines jet is believed to have plunged in the southern Indian Ocean sets off a new phase of the search for the Boeing 777 as authorities pivot to a gut-wrenching recovery mission. Search operations off the coast of Australia were suspended just after daybreak Tuesday due to bad weather, authorities said, but, when the mission resumes, investigators will be in a race against time to find the doomed airplane's voice and data recorders before the battery-powered underwater signal they transmit is silenced forever.
