    AirFrance 2009 crash, AF447. findings , fotos and final

    Hi

    A French judge filed preliminary charges of manslaughter Friday against Air France over a 2009 crash that killed all 228 people aboard a jet that plunged into the Atlantic Ocean.
    Same judge filed same charges against AirBus yesterday Thursday

    PS , Think I saw that a new search will go off on 20/3 trying to find Black Box
    So far only 50 bodies and the Tail Fin was found

    A series of search operations in the Atlantic, the fourth since the crash, are scheduled for March 20th along the Brazilian coast. The €9 million cost will be covered by Airbus and Air France.
    In the wake of the crash, searchers found tail fins from the plane and some 50 bodies. Subsequent searches using submarine robots have failed to find either the wreck of the plane or its black box.

    Fourth hunt begins for Air France jet in Brazil

    Hi

    Searchers hope any discovery might help them learn why the jet carrying 228 people dove into the Atlantic ocean during a turbulent storm two years ago, killing all on board.

    The French accident investigation agency BEA is overseeing the search and said on its website that a boat carrying three advanced underwater robots left a port in the northeastern city of Recife late Tuesday night.

    The search, which covered some 10,000 square kilometres of the ocean floor, was aided by the unmanned submarine AUV ABYSS, a REMUS 6000 on loan from the Leibniz Institute of Marine Sciences in Kiel (IFM-GEOMAR). Three other REMUS 6000 submarines were used by the Alucia's operator, the Massachusetts-based Woods Hole Oceanographic Institute.

    Photographs taken from up to 4,000 metres deep show that the wreckage of the Airbus A330 has been well-preserved, reports said.
