The Pentagon budgeted 4 million dollars to help Malaysia authorities look for flight MH370 which went missing on March 8th. The USS Kidd, an Arleigh-Burke-class destroyer and two Navy spy planes, the P-3 Orion and the more advanced P-8 have participated in the search. The Kidd has since returned to its normal assignments. Pentagon spokesman Steve Warren said on Friday, DoD had spent 2.5 million dollars at that point in the search.
