Default Brazil confirms Air France jet crashed in ocean

FERNANDO DE NORONHA, Brazil (AP) Brazilian military planes found a 3-mile (5-kilometer) path of wreckage in the Atlantic Ocean, confirming that an Air France jet carrying 228 people crashed in the sea, Defense Minister Nelson Jobim said Tuesday. Jobim told reporters in Rio de Janeiro that the discovery "confirms that the plane went down in that area," hundreds of miles (kilometers) from the Brazilian archipelago of Fernando de Noronha.

Jobim said the discovery "confirms that the plane went down in that area" hundreds of miles (kilometers) from the Brazilian archipelago of Fernando de Noronha.

He said the strip of wreckage included metallic and nonmetallic pieces, but did not describe them in detail. No bodies were spotted in the crash of the Airbus in which all aboard are believed to have died.

"It's going to be very hard to search for it because it could be at a depth of 2,000 meters or 3,000 meters (6,500 to 9,800 fee) in that area of the ocean," Jobim said.

What a tragic story. This crash appeared to have happened so fast that the pilot didn't even have time to signal a mayday. Prayers out to all of the families of the victims and may they :

This is a bad story no survivors and in deep water they didn't have a chance.

Smack in the middle of the deep ocean too - bring in the deep sea subs and robots - if they don't find those "black boxes" we may never know what really happened.

Planes aren't supposed to fall outta the sky while cruising at 35,000 ft.


As of right now, the only thing we know for sure about this incident are those automated error messages

Everything else is pure conjecture.

And we don't even know if the errors reported in those messages were part of the cause or rather a result of the accident...

I'd say the best analogy to where we are right now is probably the Space Shuttle Columbia disaster, where error messages and off-scale readings kept being sent as the aircraft (or the sensors themselves) disintegrated.

Those pingers on the recorders only have power for 30 days, they'll have to be lucky to get within a mile or so of them to find them at that depth.

some areas 13,000 + ft down

Possible Bomb Threat right before the flight?

Buenos Aires is in Argentina, that's where the bomb threat was made.

More speculation - won't know anything till (if) they find the boxes
