Flight 447 Did Not Break Apart Mid-Air, Say Investigators

July 2, 2009

France (ChattahBox) – The lead investigator into the June 1st crash of Air France Flight 447 has released a statement saying that the plane did not break apart, but rather crashed intact into the ocean.

New information seems to suggest that the plane did not begin to break apart as was previously believed, but rather plunged straight into the ocean, breaking apart after the violent impact.

“The plane seems to have hit the surface of the water on its flight trajectory with a strong vertical acceleration,” Alain Bouillard was quoted in the Huffington Post.

He also said that malfunctioning instruments that caused the pilot to lose track of the plane’s speed was likely not the cause of the crash, but rather a symptoms of a wider problem. He admits that they are no closer to finding out that cause, only ruling out what did not create the problem.

Flight 447 crashed during a flight from Rio de Janeiro to Paris, killing 228 men, women, children, and infants on board. No survivors were found, and most of the bodies have been lost, despite exhaustive search efforts.
