A new plan to track aircraft that are out of radar contact when flying over oceans is being proposed by the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO).

The proposal for planes to report their position every 15 minutes comes in the wake of the disappearance of Malaysia Airlines flight MH370 in the Indian Ocean in March last year.

John Illson, Chief of ICAO's Operational Safety Section explained the proposal to Rocio Franco on the line from the agency's headquarters in Montreal, Canada.
