More Flight 447 bodies found
Sunday 14 June 2009
Six more bodies have been recovered from the Atlantic Ocean, bringing to 50 the number found after an Air France jet crashed on 31 May, killing all 228 on board. Investigators have also received the first wreckage: two plane seats, oxygen masks, water bottles and several structural pieces, some no bigger than a human hand.
A French nuclear submarine is now scouring the area for pings from the plane's black boxes, whose signals will fade in 15 days. The first of two US locator listening devices will arrive tomorrow. The most important wreckage recovered is the vertical stabiliser, which could give French investigative agency BEA clues about the crash. Weather in the mid-Atlantic was bad. Rains reduced visibility for ships, and cloud cover blocked satellite imagery.
